Houston Texans fantasy football recap: week three
Well, week three of the NFL season is on the books and your Houston Texans lost a game to the Carolina Panthers. There was a bright spot in the squad in a fantastic sense, but Tyrod Taylor needs to recover soon.
Week Three: (Texans vs. Panthers)
QB: Davis Mills – 19/28, 168 yards, 1 TD = 10.72 points
RB: Phillip Lindsay – 7 carries, 1 target, 5 yards = .5 points
RB: Mark Ingram – 6 carries, 1 target, 20 yards = 2 points
DD: David Johnson – 2 carries, 11 yards = 1.1 points
RB: Rex Burkhead – 1 reception, 5 yards = 1.5 point
WR: Brandin Cooks – 9 receptions, 11 targets, 1 rush, 117 yards = 20.7 points
WR: Anthony Miller – 4 receptions, 20 yards, 1 TD = 12 points
TE: Jordan Akins – 4 receptions, 32 yards = 7.2 Points
K: Joey Slye – 1/1 FG done, 0/1 XP, 53 yards long = 5 points
DEF: 3 TFL, 3 sack, 24 points awarded = 3 points
As covered in Week 1, this team’s one consistent fantastic prospect is Brandin Cooks. Davis Mills and Tyrod Taylor both go to him to keep the offense going, so he’s a staple for your team this season as a wide receiver three. Anthony Miller had a great outing, but there isn’t enough consistency with the other players in this attack to justify picking them up.
The defense had three sacks, but gave up a significant number of runs, so I suggest you look elsewhere on your waiver threads.
With the recent activation of Ka’imi Fairbairn, I think it’s safe to say that he shouldn’t have a problem getting Joey Slye back to work. Missing something as small as an extra point could prove costly.
With an upcoming clash against the Buffalo Bills, look for David Culley opening the offense to catch up if the Bills advance early. Brandin Cooks should be started safely in your flexible positions and don’t rely on the Texas running backs as too big a factor. Davis Mills is too green to suggest picking up, but his distance could be much greater this week.
