The Houston Texans turned their season over to Ryan Mallett a few weeks back, and an injury suffered during warmups, has ended his season. After a nice start in a win over the Cleveland Browns, Mallett struggled through 45 pass attempts, in 22-13 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. He did spread the ball around to 6 different receivers, each with at least 3 receptions, TE Garrett Graham led the team with 41 yards.
Andre Johnson caught 10 of his 22 targets from Mallet in the last two weeks, gaining 104 yards. DeAndre Hopkins caught 9 of 17 targets, for 119 yards. Johnson has just 1 TD on the season, and since Week 4, the duo has caught just 2 TDs.
Could the Texans take a look at rookie Tom Savage? Or are they better off going back to the veteran in Ryan Fitzpatrick? Regardless, the only player you want starting in the Texans lineup on your fantasy football team come playoffs times is Arian Foster....if he ever gets healthy! Rookie Alfred Blue has gained 202 yards on 56 carries in his absence.
