Houston Texans Players Are About To Become Even More Daily Fantasy-Friendly

Houston Texans Players Are About To Become Even More Daily Fantasy-Friendly

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson has accounted for 13 touchdowns in his last three games. Will Fuller has been a touchdown machine since returning to action a few weeks ago (five in three games). DeAndre Hopkins is averaging a touchdown a game and Lamar Miller is averaging 90+ total yards from scrimmage a game.

They are not all fantastic daily fantasy options, but they are pretty darn good. But they have some tough games ahead (at Seattle and at Los Angeles (Rams)). It would be natural to think they may not be advisable fantasy options because of those tough games. But that is not the case at all.

In fact, they could end up doing better than ever.

Why?

Offensive lineman Duane Brown has finally decided to end his holdout and has reported for work. He’s been holding out for a better contract even though he has two years left on a six-year, $53.4 million deal.

The team refused to negotiate a new deal at this juncture, so he stayed away. In the end, his desire for more money is going to cost him about $5 million in fines and lost salary.

He says he’s healthy and ready to play.

During the first two weeks of the season, the offensive line played atrociously. But since Week Three, Deshaun Watson has been able to figure out how to get things done despite the lack of protection. So, imagine what’ll be able to do with one of the better offensive lineman in the NFL  protecting him now?

Lamar Miller and D’Onta Foreman will see the biggest boost in their respective production thanks to Brown’s return. But with better protection, Watson should be more effective. If he’s more effective than chances are DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller, and the rest of his receivers will also see a boost.

Brown’s presence may not make a significant impact this week with a trip to Seattle on deck. It will depend on how much the team needs him and how confident they feel in his physical condition. It’s one thing to work out and stay in shape, but it is another to be in ‘game-shape.’

But by time they face the Colts in Week Nine— yeah, he’ll be good to go.
