Foster is too good Juan…

Ben Tate is running behind arguably the best offensive line in football. He is also running behind arguably the best RB in football. The Texans may be the best team in the NFL with one of the top defensive units, so it would only makes sense that they would run the hell out the ball.

Tate has been pushed as a good flex option on most weeks, but that has not come to fruition in 3 out of the 4 weeks.  Week 2 he went off for 21 fantasy points.  In weeks 1,3, and 4, he went for 2,0, and 1 fantasy point(s) respectively.  He cannot be trusted and will only have fantasy value if Foster goes down.  If you have Foster already, great.  If you don’t, trade him to the Foster owner since he won’t be helping you anytime soon.

Houston Texans Not Only Undefeated, Also Best Team in the NFL Thanks to J.J. Watt, Defense, Running Game

The only reason the Texans were not the AFC representatives in Super Bowl XLVI was because of who was under center. With Matt Schaub at quarterback, rather than rookie T.J. Yates, the Texans could have driven through Baltimore and New England on the way to the Super Bowl. That's why it's not a surprise that they're one of three undefeated teams left in 2012. The Texans...

Texans blow out Titans 38-14

The Rundown: Titans Edition

It is still hard to believe that we would say, at any point, that the Houston Texans are 4-0, even after they beat the Tennessee Titans 38-14. The Texans fell flat for a short time in the first half when the score was 14-7 going into halftime, but thanks to Titans right tackle David Stewart he woke up the defense in a big way.
