2015 Outlook:  

Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs


After riding the bench for basically the first nine games, Mallett finally got his chance to prove his worth in Week 10, facing the Cleveland Browns on the road. Ryan completed 20 of his 30 passes for 211 yards, two TDs and one interception. The Cincinnati Bengals shut down the Texans' passing game the following week as Mallett completing only 46.7 percent of his passes for 189 yards, no TDs and one INT. His season ended that week because of a torn right pectoral muscle. Last season Houston threw the ball only 485 times for a total of 3,460 yards, 22 TDs and 13 INTs. That doesn't provide much of an opportunity for the QBs here, plus the WR corps takes a hit with Andre Johnson no longer on the roster. Ryan was expected to have high upside coming out of college in 2011 and he has three years of experience holding the clipboard for one of the best QBs in the game, Tom Brady. Even if he wins the Texans' quarterback competition this summer, his lack of a resume will lead to him having possible job-loss risk. Mallett is a low-rate backup QB flier with no impact Fantasy value on the horizon.

Sep-04-15 Texans QB Tom Savage injures throwing shoulder

Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage was forced out of Thursday's game with an injury to his throwing shoulder. He was slammed on it while trying to complete a pass. He went to the locker room for x-rays and did not return. Savage is fully expected to make the roster. There is no update on the extent of his injury yet.

Fantasy Analysis:

Much like last season, Savage has a legitimate shot to see the field this season. There passing game is going to be an adventure this season. With Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett in front of him, it's not all that farfetched if Savage gets on the field again this season. However, if he is under center, it's very bad news for the Texans. Although, he has reportedly showed progress in camp.
