Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick has surgery

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 12:35:02 -0800

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (leg) underwent surgery Monday, Dec. 15, on his broken tibia he suffered in Week 15. QB Tom Savage (knee) will miss at least this week's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Case Keenum has already been signed and could get the spot start this week. While Keenum does have experience with Houston, he's not a starting option at this point on FantasyScore unless you're looking for value at other positions.

Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick has broken leg

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 12:34:40 -0800

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (leg) suffered a broken leg in the team's Week 15 game and will miss the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Tom Savage likely will start the final two games of the regular season but probably should not be a starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick carted off

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 11:01:10 -0800

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (leg) was carted off the field after suffering a leg injury in the team's Week 15 game. He will not return to the game.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Fitzpatrick suffered a significant injury, so he could miss the rest of the season. Tom Savage entered the game in place of Fitzpatrick and likely would start if Fitzpatrick misses additional time. Savage should not be a starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick sets franchise record

Sun, 30 Nov 2014 14:02:49 -0800

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for a career-high and franchise record six touchdown passes in the Week 13 game against the Tennessee Titans. He finished 24 of 33 with 358 yards, the six touchdowns and no interceptions in his first game back after being benched for QB Ryan Mallett (chest), who suffered a season-ending injury last week.

Fantasy Tip: If you liked what you saw by Fitzpatrick this weekend, there could be more of the same in Week 14 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags are very leaky against the pass, so FantasyScore might be all over Fitzpatrick next Sunday.

Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick plays well in first half

Sun, 30 Nov 2014 11:20:24 -0800

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick went 14-for-18 for 179 yards and three touchdowns in the first half of the team's Week 13 game.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick has been playing well but is facing a struggling Tennessee Titans team. Fitzpatrick should only be a starting option for owners against favorable matchups.

Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick will start in Week 13

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 11:16:10 -0800

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will start in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick's upside is severely limited. But the good news is he's facing a Tennessee Titans defense that is pretty bad all around. Fitzpatrick ($4,600) is a deep sleeper option as your FantasyScore quarterback.

Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick back as starter?

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 18:27:14 -0800

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to return to a starting role after QB Ryan Mallett (pectoral) suffered a pectoral injury in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Mallett will have an MRI, and a tear would likely keep him sidelined several weeks.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans face the Tennessee Titans in Week 13, a team which was carved up for 300-plus yards by Philadelphia's Mark Sanchez. Fitzpatrick could be a sneaky play for FantasyScore owners if he does indeed get the nod.

Texans | Changes coming for Texans?

Mon, 03 Nov 2014 13:57:16 -0800

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said he will evaluate the entire offense during the team's bye in Week 10, including at the quarterback position. However, O'Brien didn't come close to benching QB Ryan Fitzpatrick in the team's Week 9 loss, and he didn't single him out when discussing possible changes for Week 11. "I think we have to evaluate everything," said O'Brien, when asked if he'll make a QB change. "I don't think you can always -- and I've said this along -- I don't think you can look at one position and put all the blame on that."

Fantasy Tip: It's premature to think that Ryan Mallett will take over for Fitzpatrick coming out of the bye week. Neither quarterback is a glowing option in Week 11, though, for your FantasyScore lineups.

Texans | Houston to make QB change?

Mon, 03 Nov 2014 12:58:49 -0800

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick could still be benched for backup QB Ryan Mallett, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: If Fitzpatrick was benched, it would be best to wait on picking up Mallett or starting him on FantasyScore.

Texans | Andre Johnson to become more involved?

Sat, 25 Oct 2014 18:08:06 -0700

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick said he believes he can improve the performance of the team's offense by making sure WR Andre Johnson receives more touches.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is on pace to top 1,000 yards, but he has yet to reach 100 yards in a game and has found the end zone just once this year. The Texans have a favorable matchup against a weak Tennessee defense in Week 8, but Johnson's $6,900 salary (13.8% of cap) at FantasyScore is a bit steep given his lack of upside.
