Deshaun Watson was a great fantasy football player before his injury, but DeAndre Hopkins has been dominant for the Houston Texans, despite the fact that Tom Savage has been throwing him the ball.
If you have Houston Texans’ wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins on your fantasy football team this season, you are truly blessed because he’s been amazing.
Here is the Texans’ fantasy outlook for this week.
QB Tom Savage
Unless you’re really desperate, Tom Savage isn’t worth starting going forward. He continues to turn the ball over way too much.
The Titans give up the 12th most fantasy points to quarterbacks, but I’m not confident in Savage. He might be a good start in week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers, but not this week.
RB Lamar Miller
Lamar Miller had a pretty good game against the Ravens. I thought he would have played better, given the fact that Baltimore’s run defense isn’t very good.
But then again the Ravens were able to load the box and focus on Miller without having to worry about Savage beating them through the air.
RB Alfred Blue/Andre Ellington
Alfred Blue took over as the Texans’ second running back with D’Onta Foreman out and Andre Ellington being inactive. Until I see more from either player, neither is worth owning in fantasy football.
WR DeAndre Hopkins
The Titans give up the seventh most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers and DeAndre Hopkins has been dominant this season, so of course you have to start him.

WR Will Fuller
If Will Fuller is able to play this week and you’re desperate for receiver help, I would start him. But if he does play, we don’t know how effective he’ll be while playing with cracked ribs.
TE C.J. Fiedorowicz
It was nice to see C.J. Fiedorowicz get targeted eight times against the Ravens, but the problem is that the Texans’ offense isn’t very efficient. I’m not sure how many red zone looks he’s going to get.
With the Titans giving up the 23rd most fantasy points to tight ends, Fiedorowicz isn’t worth starting in week 13.
The Titans’ offense hasn’t been a juggernaut and they give up the 15th most points to opposing defenses. It might be worth it to start the Texans’ defense this week.
