I wouldn’t expect much production when it comes to the Houston Texans this week in terms of fantasy football.

This is really a bad week to own any Houston Texans’ players in fantasy football, as they travel to face off against the Seattle Seahawks.

Here’s the Texans’ week eight fantasy football outlook.

Deshaun Watson

While I do believe Deshaun Watson is an every week starter in fantasy football, this is not the week to start him, unless you don’t have any other options.

If the Texans were facing the Seahawks at home, that would be one thing, but they have to travel to Seattle and playing up the pacific northwest is not easy for anyone.

Watson will likely only get around 15 points this week.

Lamar Miller

Running back Lamar Miller is another player that should be on your bench with the Texans’ offense set to face off a stout run defense.

Miller could have some value as a pass catcher out of the back field, but i wouldn’t expect him to have a big day.

D’Onta Foreman

Stay away from starting Foreman until further notice. If you own Miler, it would be wise to pick p Foreman as a handcuff.

DeAndre Hopkins

I know the Seahawks’ secondary is very good, but DeAndre Hopkins could have a solid game due to the fact that Watson will have to throw the football in order for them to move the chains.

I will say though, starting Hopkins will be a gamble. If you have a receiver on your roster with a better match-up, I would go with him over Hopkins.

Will Fuller V

Stay away from Will Fuller this week.

For one thing, Fuller is not going to continue to score a touchdown every week and he’s not going to do much against the Seahawks’ secondary.

Next: Texans’ defense outplaying the offense, according to PFF

Ryan Griffin

The Seahawks give up the 14th most fantasy points to tight ends this season. But Griffin hasn’t done much, since Watson has mostly been targeting his wide receivers.


The Seahawks don’t give up a lot of fantasy points to defense. I would bench Houston’s unit this week.
