Texans | Tom Savage still in lead for QB job

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 13:24:07 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage is still considered the leading candidate for the starting No. 1 quarterback but will have to earn the job during training camp, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans selected Deshaun Watson in the draft, but Savage likely will begin the 2017 season as the starting quarterback. Savage threw for 461 yards in his three games this past season and has been working on his chemistry with the receivers during offseason workouts. Owners in all leagues should avoid Savage in all drafts.

Texans | Tom Savage taking advantage of reps

Sat, 03 Jun 2017 21:01:31 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage said taking reps with the first-team offense has been a great opportunity to work on his timing and communication with WR DeAndre Hopkins and the other starters.

Fantasy Tip: Savage is just keeping the seat warm for Deshaun Watson, and even if he breaks camp as the starter, Savage is low-end QB2 for fantasy purposes.

Texans | Tom Savage hungry to remain starting QB

Mon, 08 May 2017 19:20:47 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage said "it doesn't matter if a coach says you're the starter" and that he will go out there and "play like I have to play to keep this job." He added: "You have to perform. I know that, and that's the attitude I have."

Fantasy Tip: Savage has the exact mentality he should be having as a three-year veteran who has never held a full-time starting job in the NFL, but with his limited ceiling, he won't be a recommended option out of the gate for any fantasy leagues. The 27-year-old does have some fine weapons around him, though, so it might not be a bad idea to monitor him through the beginning of the upcoming campaign, just in case quarterback help is desired.

Texans | Deshaun Watson will have chance to start

Thu, 04 May 2017 18:32:35 -0700

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson will have a chance to compete with QB Tom Savage for the starting quarterback job, general manager Rick Smith said Thursday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Savage has to be considered the frontrunner to break camp as the starter, but if Watson were to win the job, he would be worth a flier as a low-end QB2 in redraft leagues. Watson has even more appeal in keeper formats, and he should be in the conversation to be the first quarterback selected in rookie drafts.

Texans | Tom Savage will be the starter

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 21:02:49 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage will be the starting quarterback in 2017, according to head coach Bill O'Brien and general manager Rick Smith, and QB Deshaun Watson will come in and learn.

Fantasy Tip: The news take a little bit of shine off Watson, but he wasn't going to be a fantasy starter as a rookie anyway. His value is in his long-term upside, so you will want to grab him in keeper formats and rookie drafts.

Texans | Tom Savage the guy in Houston

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 07:07:19 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage will move forward as the starter, but the team is likely to draft a quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Savage was unspectacular in his short stint starting last season, and he'll enter the season as a midrate QB2 in fantasy.

Browns | Brock Osweiler sealed Texans' fate with fight

Sun, 12 Mar 2017 10:05:06 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler "reacted negatively" to head coach Bill O'Brien's decision to turn to him in Week 17 after starter Tom Savage was injured in the second quarter of a loss to the Tennessee Titans. An argument reportedly ensued and the two men eventually engaged in a "physical confrontation that got ugly", according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: If all the details of this report are true, it would help explain why the Texans showed no interest in giving Osweiler another chance to prove himself in 2017 after a disastrous first season. Osweiler will likely be released soon if the Browns can't find a trade partner, while Houston will almost certainly spend a high draft pick on fixing their quarterback situation, even if it adds Tony Romo at some point.

Texans | Tom Savage could wind up in San Francisco

Mon, 06 Mar 2017 23:03:10 -0800

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage could end up with the San Francisco 49ers via trade if Houston ends up acquiring Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo at some point this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: It's no secret the 49ers are looking for a new starting quarterback, so it appears a possible Romo-to-Houston move would be the domino that triggers the 49ers then going after Savage. It wouldn't exactly be a high-ceiling acquisition but Savage did impress a bit when he got to start at the end of the year for the Texans. However, the 49ers would have to improve their offense more for Savage to draw serious consideration in fantasy, even as just a QB2.

Texans | HOU QBs to compete for starting gig

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 05:44:02 -0800

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler and QB Tom Savage will compete, likely with a quarterback from the 2017 NFL draft, for the starting spot next season, according to owner Bob McNair. The Texans could draft a quarterback in the first or second rounds.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler or Savage would be a backup in fantasy if they win the job. There are some players to work with at the skill positions, and either could be a matchup play.

Texans | Owner hopes Tom Savage competes for QB job

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 12:10:00 -0800

Houston Texans owner Bob McNair said he would like to see QB Tom Savage compete for the starting quarterback job next season.

Fantasy Tip: Savage started a few games at the end of the season but was sidelined during the playoffs because of a concussion. He probably would have to compete with Brock Osweiler and maybe another quarterback during training camp, but the winner of the job should be avoided by fantasy owners.
