Here are your daily Houston Texans stories for Tuesday:
Texans betting lines by Matt Young, Houston Chronicle
"As soon as the NFL schedules are released, it’s only natural to go down the list and assign a win or a loss to every game and try to determine what your team’s record is going to be.CG Technology, formerly known as Cantor Gaming, has released betting lines for every NFL game – not including Week 17, because you never know which teams will have a playoff spot locked up and will rest their starters."
Well, with Tom Brady‘s four game suspension affecting the Texans I bet that line will change. I’m not a gambling man, but if you are then take a look for yourself.

Texans Draft Guide by USA Today, KHOU.com and AP
"The Texans return star receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who made his first Pro Bowl last season after finishing third in the NFL with 1,521 yards receiving. But they could use the 22nd overall pick to find a receiver to play opposite Hopkins and take some pressure off the 23-year-old who faced near constant double teams last season.Top receivers who could still be around when Houston’s spot comes up are Will Fuller of Notre Dame and Baylor’s Corey Coleman.Though receiver is clearly Houston’s biggest need, there’s certainly no guarantee the Texans will use their first pick on the position.The Texans have a strong history with taking receivers in the first round."
Houston Texans Mock Draft by Sam Weaver, NFL Mocks
"Houston addressed many of their most glaring issues during free agency. The Texans signed quarterback Brock Osweiler, running back Lamar Miller, guard Jeff Allen, and center Tony Bergstrom in the offseason.A stout Houston defense carried the team to the postseason last year. Poor play by Brian Hoyer, and the lack of a true run threat kept the Texans from advancing.Houston will look for a viable receiver on the other side of DeAndre Hopkins, and a tight end to give Osweiler as many options as possible. Despite offseason additions, the Texans will need to shore up their offensive line."
Surprisingly, this one doesn’t go for a receiver until the fourth round. There are many pressing needs to address, so it’ll be interesting to see the order in which they are addressed this week.
