Fantasy Football: Young tight ends with major upside

Tight ends are often overlooked when it comes to fantasy football.  Sure, guys like Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham garner a ton of attention, but other than the elite of the position, many are overlooked.

This Could Be the Last Great Season from Arian Foster

Mailbag: Can Ryan Fitzpatrick toss 30, Foster bouncing back, more

Alex, with the preseason emergence of Ryan Griffin, and C.J. Fiedorowicz looking like he could be a threat in the passing game, along with Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins, is it realistic to believe Ryan Fitzpatrick can toss 30 or more touchdowns this year? That is, if he keeps the job, or is that overly-ambitious? Peter, Pasadena. Hi Peter, Right now, it does look like Ryan Fitzpatrick...

Houston Texans Fantasy Football Outlook

The 2013 Houston Texans were an absolute embarrassment as they went 2-14. To makes things even worse, the team started of 2-0, and lost the final 14 games of the season. They could have gone 0-16, as they came back to win in Week 1 despite being down 21 points against the San Diego Chargers, and beat the Tennessee Titans in overtime in Week 2.Matt Schaub, who is now with the Oakland...

Mailbag: Houston Texans ugly preseason game a preview for regular season?

Hi Alex. The Houston Texans looked simply awful in their first preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals, and even worse than they did during the 2013 season. Losing 32-0, with no help from the defense, and a hopeless-looking offense definitely is cause for concern. I know it’s just the preseason, but do you think this is a preview of what’s to come for the Texans in 2014...

Will Houston Texans 2014 draftees be better than 2013?

In 2013 the Houston Texans picked up nine players in the draft last year, so you would think that a lot of them are working this offseason for a potential starting role. The only problem with that idea is there are only four of the nine players even on the roster. Two players were cut, one was waived, on released for rules violations and one, David Quessenberry, was diagnosed...

Analysis on Houston Texans’ third round selection

The Houston Texans drafted C.J. Fiedorowicz in the third round of this years draft, a move that surprised some and have some saying it was a reach to take him in the third. From what I have seen of his game film he is a great blocking tight end but even more surprising is his ability to catch the ball. He goes up and gets the ball at the highest point and at 6’5” he gets up...
