Houston Texans’ players should have a good week in fantasy football.

The Houston Texans have a great match-up against the Cleveland Browns this Sunday and it should benefit their players in fantasy football.

Here is my outlook on which players from the Texans you should start on your fantasy team’s this week.

QB Deshaun Watson

After yet another great performance, even though quarterback Deshaun Watson put up a couple of touchdowns during garbage time, he’s now an every week starter in fantasy football.

With the Texans facing the Cleveland Browns this week, you have to start Watson with the Browns give up the fourth most fantasy points to quarterbacks.

Next: Texans have one of the top scoring offenses

RB Lamar Miller

Through the first three weeks of the season it didn’t look like running back Lamar Miller could get the job done. But the good news is that he’s gotten better in each of the past two games. He’s a guy you can feel comfortable starting in fantasy football.

The reason Miller isn’t scoring a lot of touchdowns is because Watson and Houston’s receivers are scoring from outside the red zone.

RB D’Onta Foreman

Foreman is getting a few carries, but unless you play in a deep league, he’s not worth starting in standard 10-14 team leagues.

WR DeAndre Hopkins

In each of the last two games, Texans’ wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has seen 12 targets come his way.  That’s 24 total targets.  It’s a no-brainer. He should never sit on your bench from here on out.

WR Will Fuller V

Anyone who picked up wide receiver Will Fuller and started him in each of the past two games was brilliant.  But I don’t expect him to continue to get two touchdowns a game.

Fuller could have another big day against a team like the Browns. So you have to start him in week six.

TE Ryan Griffin

Griffin hasn’t done much when it comes to fantasy football, but he has a great match-up against the Browns this week. I would start him if you don’t have any other options.

Texans D/ST

I’m not a big fan of the Texans’ defense right now when it comes to fantasy football since they’re riddled with injuries.  But this week’s match-up is in their favor. They should be able to get you at least 10 points.
