Texans will prepare QBs T.J. Yates, Case Keenum to start

Texans quarterback Matt Schaub suffered injuries "everywhere" in his lower right leg, according to head coach Gary Kubiak, during Sunday's stunning, blowout home loss to the Rams. Kubiak said a determination on who will be his starting quarterback in Week 7 versus the Chiefs will not be decided until the end of the week and depends on how Schaub feels physically. But in the meantime, Kubiak said he will prepare both T.J. Yates @TJ_Yates and Case Keenum @casekeenum7 to start, if needed.
Yates replaced Schaub after his injury. He completed 12 of 17 passes for just 98 yards and two interceptions, including a pick-six.

Fantasy Analysis:

In other words, it's looking like another great matchup for the Chiefs' defense. And while Schaub has been dreadful for most of the season, in no way is Yates is a significant upgrade. Keenum set a bunch of records while in college at the University of Houston. Now in his second season, Keenum doesn't possess good arm strength or mobility. Simply, the Texans' QB situation is a complete mess right now. Andre Johnson @johnson80 owners have reason to worry.

Did you really just say that Keenum doesn't possess mobility or arm strength??? You've obviously never seen him play.
