Texans | Bill O'Brien, GM safe

Wed, 13 Jan 2016 09:29:45 -0800

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien and general manager Rick Smith will work with each other for a third straight year in 2016, according to owner Bob McNair. "I see no reason they (Smith and O'Brien) can't (work together). They've been working together. They're bright, and they're independent and they express their opinions," McNair said.

Texans | Alfred Blue draws praise

Tue, 22 Dec 2015 18:21:29 -0800

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue was praised for his performance against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 15 by head coach Bill O'Brien. "Alfred Blue, other than the fumble, he ran with a purpose and I think that was a big part of the game," O'Brien said.

Fantasy Tip: With Houston down to Brandon Weeden at quarterback, Blue ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) should be in line for a big workload against an average Tennessee rush defense in Week 16. Blue could be a solid source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

Texans | HC wants better run defense

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 11:42:34 -0700

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said the Texans need to stop the run in order to get better on defense. Houston has allowed five rushing touchdowns in their last two games and is surrendering 114.2 rushing yards per game. "If we can stop the run better and get teams in longer yardage, that may be able to help us," O'Brien said. "If you don't stop the run, that's going to be a problem."

Texans | Houston not ready to name starting QB

Mon, 14 Sep 2015 12:42:40 -0700

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said he has a good idea of who will be the starting quarterback against the Carolina Panthers in Week 2 but is not ready to announce it at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Brian Hoyer started in Week 1 but was benched during the game and was replaced by Ryan Mallett, who played well in his limited time. Mallett could be the leading candidate to start, but neither quarterback is a great fantasy option in any league.

Texans | Nuke, Nate Washington top depth chart

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 22:53:33 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins and WR Nate Washington are atop the depth chart right now, head coach Bill O'Brien said Monday, Aug. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins will be the receiver fantasy owners target early on draft day, but there could be some value with Washington in the middle to late rounds if he can maintain a starting role. You could do worse for your WR4 or flex fantasy option in standard fantasy formats.

Texans | Ryan Mallet works with first-team

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 16:16:04 -0700

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallet worked with the first-team offense Sunday, Aug. 2, after QB Brian Hoyer worked with the first-team Saturday, Aug. 1. "Whenever he (Bill O'Brien) feels like someone is ready to be named the starter that's what he'll do, and whatever way it goes, I have really a lot of trust and faith in him," Hoyer said. "Whatever he decides will be best for the team."

Fantasy Tip: It wouldn't be a surprise to see both Hoyer and Mallet start games this year, but don't expect either quarterback to be more than a mid-range QB2.

Texans | Case Keenum gets vote of confidence

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 04:23:16 -0800

Houston Texans QB Case Keenum picked up a vote of confidence from head coach Bill O'Brien, who called Keenum a "very viable" option at quarterback for 2015.

Fantasy Tip: O'Brien did not specify whether he meant Keenum had a future as backup or as a starter. Keep in mind the Texans have Ryan Mallett as well at quarterback, and Mallett worked well under Tom Brady in New England. Keenum's fantasy value depends entirely on whether he starts or holds a clipboard, so wait and see how this develops.

Texans | Houston QB unknown until Sunday

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:29:57 -0800

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said he won't reveal who the starting quarterback will be this week prior to Sunday's game.

Fantasy Tip: Thaddeus Lewis and Case Keenum are the likely candidates to start, but neither is worth investing in on FantasyScore unless you want to spend big at other positions.
