Listed are the Top 10 best players on the 2020 roster of the Houston Texans.

As we tread through Houston Texans news and awaiting the return of the team in the midst of the crazy world we live in, it is time to take a look at the current 2020 roster. As the Houston Texans prepare to defend their AFC South title and avenge their debacle in the divisional round playoffs against the Kansas City Chiefs, let’s look at the top players on the current roster to see who the team needs to lean on going into the fray of this unknown season.

With the departure of key players in Deandre Hopkins, D.J. Reader, Carlos Hyde and Johnathan Joseph, the ranking might be a little different than you’d expect.

Deshaun Watson is officially the true face of the franchise with Hopkins’ departure and J.J. Watt’s age and health. The Houston Texans will go as far as Watson can drive them, but the franchise has other key contributors that will help get this team where they want to be.

General manager and head coach Bill O’Brien keeps winning as a coach, and until we see otherwise, we will trust in him and the following 10 players.

10: Darren Fells, Tight End

The 10th player was kind of hard to pick for this Houston Texans list. The franchise has a lot of players who were good contributors, but Darren Fells came out and helped dramatically in his first season in “Space City.”

The former college basketball star helped to the tune of 341 yards and a strong seven touchdowns while starting 14 games and playing in every game last season.

The yards might not catch the eyes of many, but the seven touchdowns can’t be ignored as they tied for first on the team with Deandre Hopkins in 2019. His efforts netted him a new two-year contract this offseason, showing his contributions were valued and that he should be a key contributor going into 2020.
