TEAMS: Houston Texans
Houston-texans

Matt Schaub (QB) (ADP:98.6) Like seemingly all of the Houston skill position players, Matt Schaub is considered a risky pick due to his inability to stay healthy. Schaub was off to a fine start in 2011 before a Lis Franc injury got him in the Texans' tenth game. In 2009-2010, Schuab managed to play and start all 16 games and passed for over 4300 yards each season, finishing as a top ten fantasy qb in '10 and top five in '09.
