Texans | Brock Osweiler takes blame for loss

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 21:14:32 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler said he takes the blame for the performance of the offense against the New England Patriots in Week 3, and he said he will become a better quarterback because of the experience.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler has three touchdowns and four picks through three games, and he looks like a low-end QB2 at this point.

Texans | Brock Osweiler not on injury report

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 15:20:23 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler (back) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler will not be limited by his back injury and should be able to make all the throws in the offensive playbook. He will be facing a tough New England Patriots defense and probably is not a great fantasy option for owners.

Texans | Brock Osweiler a full participant

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 15:43:58 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler (back) participated fully in practice Tuesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler has been inconsistent throughout his short career, but he does have a favorable matchup against the New England Patriots this week. The Patriots yielded nearly 400 yards to Ryan Tannehill last week and Osweiler is a cheaper investment in daily contests.

Texans | Brock Osweiler has full practice

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 16:43:04 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler (back) participated fully in practice Monday, Sept. 19. Osweiler's status is simply an estimation of what his practice activity would be as the Patriots only held a walkthrough.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler has been decent so far in his first season with Texans, but he doesn't perform consistently enough to warrant QB1 status on a week-to-week basis. He's not a bad play in daily contests this week, however, going up against a New England Patriots defense that just gave up nearly 400 yards to Ryan Tannehill.

Texans | Brock Osweiler successful in debut

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 21:54:25 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler completed 22 of his 35 pass attempts for 231 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears in his regular season team debut.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler jelled nicely with Will Fuller and DeAndre Hopkins, and the run game was good allowing him plenty of time to throw. If everyone on offense can remain healthy, Osweiler could be a decent QB2 in most fantasy leagues worth using in select weeks when the matchup is favorable.

Texans | Brock Osweiler sharp in win

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 19:12:54 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler completed 11 of his 13 passes for 146 yards and a touchdown in a 34-24 preseason win over the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler is an unknown as he enters his first season as a full-time starter, but a solid supporting cast makes him worth a look as a midrange QB2. He could develop into a decent trade chip.

Texans | Brock Osweiler talks chemistry with WRs

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 10:40:26 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler is encouraged by the chemistry he is developing with his receivers following the second preseason game. "I think the receivers are understanding when I want to get the ball out versus man versus maybe a zone coverage. Obviously, I'm learning the body language of each wide receiver when he's going to come out of his break, how he likes his football, where he likes his football. Every single day we're getting better."

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler is a low-end quarterback option who should be left to the waiver wire outside of SuperFlex and two-QB leagues. There is some potential in the revamped Houston attack, but fantasy owners should wait to see the offense clicking before relying on Osweiler as anything more than a desperation start.

Texans | Brock Osweiler decent in victory

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 22:22:18 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler completed 12 of his 19 pass attempts for 124 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler looked a lot more comfortable in this game than his debut. He is going to be just fine as long as DeAndre Hopkins stays healthy, Will Fuller continues to progress and either Jaelen Strong or Braxton Miller can emerge as another viable target. He remains more of a low-end QB2 in most standard fantasy formats with some room to move up.

Texans | Tom Savage impressing in training camp

Sun, 07 Aug 2016 07:18:01 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage has had an impressive first week of training camp, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. "He's really worked hard to change his body, become stronger, become quicker, quicker release," O'Brien said. "He has a much better knowledge of our offense. It takes a while for that position. The only thing Tom needs is an opportunity. Tom is a good football player and he's put a lot of time in to get to where he is right now." Savage is competing with QBs Brandon Weeden and T.J. Yates to serve as the backup to QB Brock Osweiler.

Texans | Brock Osweiler comfortable

Sun, 31 Jul 2016 20:47:06 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler said he felt comfortable calling the plays and making adjustments at the line of scrimmage during practice Sunday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler is a bit of an unknown heading into his first season as a full-time starter, and he shouldn't be counted on as more than a mid-range QB2.

Texans | Brock Osweiler a work in progress

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 17:06:08 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler said he still has a "long way to go" to learn head coach Bill O'Brien's system, but O'Brien said Osweiler has lived up to expectations thus far.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler shouldn't be viewed as more than a mid-range fantasy backup in his first year as a full-time starter.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins, Osweiler progressing

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 12:41:25 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler and WR DeAndre Hopkins have progressed in their chemistry, according to head coach Bill O'Brien, who said both players are working extremely hard.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has proven that he can succeed no matter who is throwing the football. He's still by far their best receiving option and worth a look in the mid-WR1 group. Osweiler, on the other hand, should not be drafted as a starting fantasy quarterback in his first season with the Texans.

Texans | Brock Osweiler learning new offense

Wed, 11 May 2016 20:14:34 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler said Wednesday, May 11, that it has been fun learning a new offense and trying to get comfortable in his new surroundings. "It's fun," Osweiler said. "It's hard to judge that progress because we haven't hit the practice field and gone against a defense, but it's like you speak Spanish your whole life and then all of a sudden one day, they tell you to go learn French and do it in front of 70,000 people."

Fantasy Tip: Having a deep threat and talented receiver like Nuke Hopkins will certainly make things easier, and if Lamar Miller can fill the shoes of the departed Arian Foster, that would be huge, too. Osweiler will have a lot of pressure to perform, and we have really only seen glimpses of brilliance from him. He could be the next Tom Brady, or he could be the next Matt Cassel. It's hard to say at this point.

Texans | Brock Osweiler looking good

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 12:03:36 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler is looking good during the team's offseason workouts, according to a source. WR DeAndre Hopkins has been off the charts, too.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler had some success in his first seven NFL starts with the Denver Broncos last year, but he was inconsistent overall. He has the potential to become a low-end QB1 in the right matchups in 2016, but he's safer taken as a backup QB. Hopkins proved he is an elite WR1 and will now have one of the more talented quarterbacks he's ever had throwing to him in Houston.

Texans | Brock Osweiler praised by coach

Sun, 20 Mar 2016 21:01:25 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler received praise from head coach Bill O'Brien Sunday, March 20. "We studied all of the snaps he had," O'Brien said. "He is tough. He is an accurate passer. I like his leadership. Of all the people who have coached him, everybody spoke highly of him. We are really happy with our decision to sign him."

Fantasy Tip: O'Brien's endorsement isn't surprising, but despite all the praise, Osweiler is best suited as a backup fantasy quarterback.

Texans | More on Brock Osweiler deal

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 09:57:21 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler's deal includes a $12 million Super Bowl bonus and $20 million more in guaranteed base salary, including a $5 million roster bonus this month. He'll have $37 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler joins a Houston club that has beefed up their offense considerably, but with just seven career starts under his belt, it's safe to say that Osweiler is a bit of an unknown. He has some nice weapons around him, but he'll be safer as a midrange fantasy backup to start in Houston.

Broncos | Mike Glennon a trade target for Denver?

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 15:48:17 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon is being mentioned as a possible trade target for the Denver Broncos after they lost free-agent QB Brock Osweiler to the Houston Texans on Wednesday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler's departure means the Broncos will be linked with just about every available free-agent quarterback or any signal-caller who has supposedly been on the trade block recently. Glennon would be a serviceable fallback option if the Broncos chose to go in that direction, but Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III are better fits in head coach Gary Kubiak's offense. Regardless of which one winds up in Denver, none of them figure to be anything more than a QB2 for fantasy purposes.

Texans | Brock Osweiler contract details

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 12:38:26 -0800

Updating a previous report, the Houston Texans are giving QB Brock Osweiler a four-year deal worth $72 million, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler is still a work in progress after seven starts for the Denver Broncos last year, but he has promise with a very strong arm. He joins a Texans team that also just brought Lamar Miller on board for the backfield. DeAndre Hopkins is one of the best young wideouts in the game. All the weapons are in place for Osweiler to succeed, but you'll want to be patient and take him as your fantasy backup in 2016.

Texans | Brock Osweiler agrees with Houston

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 12:16:15 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler has agreed in principle to a deal with the Houston Texans Wednesday, March 9, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Nothing is official yet, but it looks like Osweiler decided to move his talents elsewhere. The Texans are also on the verge of signing Lamar Miller, so Houston's offense is about to see a significant boost. Osweiler will have one of the best young receivers in the game now in DeAndre Hopkins, too. Consider the Arizona State product a fantasy backup target with upside for a lot more.

Texans | Houston making run for Brock Osweiler

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 09:55:33 -0800

The Houston Texans are making a good run for Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler. However, it's unlikely that he leaves the Broncos, in the opinion of the Houston Chronicle's John McClain.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler made seven successful starts last year for the Broncos, and he showed, despite a lack of experience, that he can put up decent numbers in the NFL with a starting gig. He would have the weapons around him in Houston to be successful, but he's safer as your fantasy backup in 2016.

Broncos | Denver ramping up efforts for Osweiler

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 09:31:05 -0800

The Denver Broncos are ramping up their efforts to re-sign impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler Wednesday, March 9, and negotiations are ongoing. It's either the Broncos or Houston Texans for Osweiler.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler was successful with Denver in a seven-week run as their starter last year with Peyton Manning hurt, and he is a good fit in Gary Kubiak's offense. He's still a bit raw, so he'll have his ups and downs, but he's clearly the most attractive remaining QB on the market. Wherever he lands, he'll be more of a fantasy backup.

Broncos | Colin Kaepernick could land in Denver

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 07:43:40 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick appears to be the Denver Broncos' backup plan if the Broncos are unable to re-sign QB Brock Osweiler.

Fantasy Tip: Kaep's value would increase in Denver, but he'll be a QB2 option in fantasy regardless.

Broncos | Denver cut off talks with Brock Osweiler?

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 19:14:13 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler and his representatives have reportedly not engaged in any negotiations with the team since offering a three-year deal worth $45 million on Saturday, March 5, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Houston Texans are considered to be the Broncos' main competition for Osweiler and have more cap room than Denver, so this report suggests the top young free-agent quarterback on the market could be on the move. The 25-year-old would likely be a middling QB2 if he returns to the Broncos, while a move to Houston may be the best for his long-term fantasy outlook.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler offer not enough

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 07:44:52 -0800

Updating previous reports, the three years and $45 million the Denver Broncos offered impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler is "not enough to get the deal done at this point," according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The two sides are expected to have more talks when free agency opens this week.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler has chemistry with the current Denver roster and experience in the system, so his fantasy value would be highest if he stays with the Broncos. Even then, he's safest as a fantasy backup in 2016, but he does have upside for more in the right matchups.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler offer details

Sat, 05 Mar 2016 12:34:40 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler has been offered a three-year contract worth more than $45 million, according to sources. It is not known how much of the offer is fully guaranteed, but it does include incentives. If Osweiler and the Broncos do not agree on a deal before Monday, March 7, he will be able to talk with prospective teams before free agency begins Wednesday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler could be the most intriguing quarterback option on the free-agent market next week if he doesn't re-sign with Denver. No matter where Osweiler plays next season, though, he won't be worth starting quarterback consideration.

Broncos | Offer made to Brock Osweiler

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 14:49:28 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler received a substantial offer from the Broncos Thursday, March 3. Details of the offer were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos might be in desperation mode to bring Osweiler back, hence the "substantial" offer. Although it was reported earlier that the two parties weren't close to a deal, so maybe Osweiler wants more. Nevertheless, Osweiler should not be seen as a QB1 no matter where he plays or starts in 2016.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler deal not close

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 14:23:20 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler and the Broncos are not close to a deal at present, but Denver does want Osweiler back.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos are in a bit of a sticky situation at quarterback. If Peyton Manning retires and Osweiler decides to sign elsewhere, they'll need to sign a signal-caller in free agency and/or via the draft. Whoever quarterbacks the Broncos probably won't be worth starting in fantasy leagues, though, at least not right away.

Texans | Brock Osweiler to Houston possible?

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 14:32:26 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent Brock Osweiler's next best suitor could be the Houston Texans if he is not retained by the Broncos, in the opinion of CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler is highly expected to return to Denver either via the franchise tag or a long-term deal. If Von Miller is tagged, though, then there is a higher possibility that he chooses to leave for a more profitable deal. Assuming he does stay in Denver, Osweiler is still a backup fantasy quarterback.

Broncos | No tag for Brock Osweiler

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 15:07:31 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler will not have the franchise tag used on him, according to general manager John Elway.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler is either signing a new deal or hitting the free-agent market. With a relatively subpar quarterback group this year, Osweiler could leave Denver for a more lucrative contract elsewhere. Don't try to gauge his value until we know for certain where he'll play, though.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler talks not serious

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 13:43:57 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler and the Broncos have not had substantive negotiations yet regarding a new deal.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler is widely viewed as the Broncos next starting quarterback, but he could be offered more from another team if he hits the free-agent market. If he does sign and start with the Broncos he still shouldn't be considered a starting fantasy quarterback, however.

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 09:53:23 -0800

The Denver Broncos will have over $3.3 million in unused 2015 salary cap space that will spill over into this year, according to data released by the NFL Players Association. It's around the league median in carryover space this year. Fourteen teams will have a lower amount of cap space than the Broncos. The Broncos are trying to re-sign impending free-agent LB Von Miller, QB Brock Osweiler and DE Malik Jackson.

Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler is wanted back by the club. "I think he has a bright future, obviously," head coach Gary Kubiak said. "He did a heck of a job for us. He played against some really good people in some tough situations. He played very well. We think the world of him. We want him to be a part of our football team. He's been real special with the job he's done this year. I think he's grown a great deal."

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler will be a low-end QB1 target in drafts if he remains in Denver.

Broncos | Aqib Talib endorses Osweiler

Wed, 17 Feb 2016 09:47:25 -0800

Denver Broncos CB Aqib Talib has endorsed impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler as the team considers whether to offer him a long-term deal this offseason.

"I would love to see it," Talib explained. "I feel like he stepped in for Peyton and he played great. He was a leader for us, he was vocal, he was confident. And that was his first time doing it. ... Going forward, I got all the confidence in the world in Brock, that he can lead us and be our quarterback if he has to."

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler will be a hot commodity on the open market if Denver isn't able to sign him to an extension. Because he has experience in the Broncos offense and is seemingly a perfect fit, his fantasy value would be highest if he stayed. But even then he's probably no better than a midrange backup for now.

Broncos | Teammate suggests Brock Osweiler is ready

Tue, 16 Feb 2016 10:59:14 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent DT Malik Jackson feels fellow free-agent QB Brock Osweiler is ready to take over the starting quarterback job in Denver. "He's definitely someone who's proven. He's been underpaid for four years, quietly waiting," Jackson said. Osweiler had 1,967 yards and 10 touchdowns in limited action this year.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos will make every attempt to sign Osweiler to a long-term extension with Peyton Manning unlikely to return, but Denver could be outbid by other teams desperate for a decent QB. Osweiler's fantasy value is best if he remains in Denver in a scheme that he's comfortable with and that suits him better. He could be a decent backup QB to target if he re-signs.

Tue, 16 Feb 2016 10:32:57 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler is unlikely to receive the highest offer from the Broncos in free agency. If the Broncos can't re-sign Osweiler, they'll likely draft a quarterback and bring in a veteran to groom him.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler is expected to re-sign and start with Denver next season. He'll be in the QB2 conversation in fantasy.

There are plans for Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler to be the starting quarterback in 2016, and the Broncos do want to sign Osweiler to a multiyear contract extension. The sooner QB Peyton Manning notifies Denver of his decision to retire or not the sooner Denver can negotiate with Osweiler.

Fantasy Tip: A lot of this will unfold over the next month or so. Even if Osweiler does start, he should not be viewed as a starting fantasy quarterback right away.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler may not rush into talks

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 15:54:08 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler's representatives likely will not have serious contract talks with the Broncos until more is known about QB Peyton Manning's future with the team.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler's future with the team probably will be tied to Manning's decision because Osweiler may want to look for a starting job this offseason. Osweiler likely would receive interest from several teams if he hits the free-agent market, but it is believed the Broncos are still his most likely destination. Osweiler should some solid play this season and probably would be a solid No. 2 quarterback in most leagues.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler hoping to stay

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 09:55:39 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler is hoping that he can remain with Denver if QB Peyton Manning decides to retire in the offseason. "Every single guy on this team embraced me, and that is something I think they all know how thankful I am for that, but this is the best team in the world and we have a very special group in our locker room," Osweiler said. If LB Von Miller receives the franchise tag, signing Osweiler to a new deal may be necessary.

Fantasy Tip: Manning is expected to hang 'em up. But with Denver having so many other impending free agents to deal with, Osweiler may be a tricky case. He had his ups and downs during his seven-game starting streak but is a perfect fit for Gary Kubiak's offense if he is retained. Osweiler can perform as a low-end QB1 at times, but he's better off as your backup fantasy QB if he stays in Denver.

Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler could be pursued by the Cleveland Browns. Denver Broncos general manager John Elway believes the Browns are Denver's top competition for Osweiler.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler expected to start next year

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 16:24:26 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler is expected to be the Broncos starting quarterback next season if they can sign him to an extension, even if QB Peyton Manning decides that Super Bowl 50 isn't his final game. Broncos quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp said Monday, Feb. 1, that Osweiler has done everything to put himself in a position to start for Denver next year. President and general manager John Elway said he's excited about Osweiler and is "hoping to get something done with Brock this offseason." Osweiler can become a free agent March 9.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler looked good in his first extended starting run at quarterback, but he'll have his ups and downs as he continues to learn. He could eventually become a starting fantasy quarterback, but all things considered next year he'll likely project as a solid backup option if he's starting in Denver or elsewhere.

Broncos | Denver not looking ahead

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 12:02:22 -0800

Denver Broncos president and general manager John Elway won't comment on the future of QBs Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler, saying the team is "staying in the moment" right now.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos would be crazy to stick with Manning for another season after a disappointing 2015 season in which he threw almost twice as many interceptions as touchdowns and missed six weeks with injury. Osweiler appears to be Denver's QB of the future, but contract negotiations could be tricky. Even if No. 18 lands with another team in 2016, he shouldn't be considered a fantasy starter.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler looking for three-year deal?

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 14:08:53 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler will command a deal in the range of a three-year, $36 million deal this offseason, in the opinion of The Denver Post's Troy E. Renck.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless of how Denver's season ends, Peyton Manning probably won't be in there plans for 2016 and beyond. Osweiler had his ups and downs during a starting stretch this year, but he proved enough to be seriously considered as Denver's starter of the future. If he re-signs with the Broncos, he could be a solid backup fantasy quarterback.

Broncos | Peyton Manning wasn't going to be benched

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 09:55:15 -0800

Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said he never considered benching QB Peyton Manning in favor of QB Brock Osweiler in the second half of the divisional round win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. "No," Kubiak said. "We were struggling because we didn't catch the ball. We would have had a really big first half. There was 100 yards of plays we left out there. We just need to keep plugging away."

Fantasy Tip: Manning had only 222 yards and no touchdowns against a very beatable Pittsburgh secondary, but he wasn't helped by drops from his receivers. The New England Patriots won't present a much easier matchup for No. 18, but it all will come down to how well Denver can run the ball.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler questionable

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 15:24:39 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Jan. 15, and is questionable for the divisional round against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) should be good to back up Peyton Manning on Sunday barring a setback. He has zero fantasy value at this point, though.
