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.

Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick keeping job

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 15:48:50 -0700

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the starting quarterback even though he has struggled at times this season, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. "He's our starter," O'Brien said. "The film never lies. What the film shows us is that everybody on the offense has to play better. The line has to play better. The backs have to play better. The tight ends. The receivers. We've got to coach better. We've got to get the players to understand what we want. When we do that, all the positions will (play) better, including quarterback."

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick has had an inconsistent season so far but appears to have a solid hold on the starting job. Fitzpatrick probably should not be a starting option for owners most weeks.

Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick probable

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 14:49:29 -0700

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (calf) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 8, and is probable for Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Oct. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick presents you with a cheaper option at quarterback in Week 6 at $6,400 (12.8% of cap), but the Colts have been one of the better teams on defense through the air. Look elsewhere at FantasyScore.

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 17:33:48 -0700

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (calf) was a full participant in practice Monday, Oct. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick hasn't provided much fantasy value this season, tossing five touchdowns compared to six interceptions. He should be avoided at FantasyScore in Week 6.

Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick ready for reunion

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 19:43:30 -0700

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will get a chance to face his former team, the Buffalo Bills, in Week 4. It will be his first time facing his old team since leaving in the 2013 offseason. "This is a special game for me. I think partly just because I've got so many great friends still that are over on the other side of the ball," Fitzpatrick said Wednesday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick will cost just $6700 (or 13.4 percent of your salary cap) in FantasyScore, and is a solid QB2 against his former team. He could play with a little extra incentive, and costs a fraction of the studs on the board. Plus, his inclusion will save you plenty of money to spend at other positions.

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 07:51:11 -0700

Houston Texans QB Case Keenum is taking some repetitions with the first-team offense in practice Thursday, Aug. 14. Ryan Fitzpatrick is still in the mix to start, but neither are worthy of fantasy consideration except in deep leagues.
