Team Grade:
Houston Texans
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:


The Texans are in a rebuilding mode. The defense still is pretty sold but the offense is a question mark. The quarterback situation is a big concern with Ryan Fitzpatrick likely opening the season as the starter. Houston needs to find their franchise quarterback. The Texans will be a run-first, defensive team that will try to grind out wins. It could be a long season for the Texans. They should finish below .500 and struggle to win a lot of games. This roster still needs to add some talent to get going in the right direction once again.
Receiver DeAndre Hopkins had an up and down rookie season but was a top big-play threat for the team and had some big games. He is the top deep threat in the offense. Expect his game to take a step forward this season and become more of a weekly threat for the Texans. He is the future No. 1 for the Texans and that transition should start this season. Andre Johnson isn't getting any younger and wants to move to a better situation, opening the door for Hopkins to play a huge role the coming years. He could hit his first 1,000-yard season in 2014.
Some are giving tight end Garrett Graham a recommendation for this coming season since he'll move into a starting role. We aren't sold on him, though. Graham isn't really a big-play threat and more of a move the chains tight end. He'll get some catches but don't expect his yards or touchdowns to be very good. He should be considered a low-end No. 2 fantasy tight end. Just because he is starting doesn't mean his numbers will suddenly be off the charts. Don't get too excited about Graham.
