Fantasy Analysis
Week 1 Projections
The fifth-year pro is a safety net behind Brock Osweiler and Tom Savage. Weeden, claimed off waivers by the Houston Texans in mid-November 2015, played well enough to help the team win two late-season contests, but he’s considered a marginally average NFL quarterback and a weak streaming option if his services are needed are center.
Passsing: 1 Yards, 0 TD, 0 INT.

Season Projections
Following a disastrous year-and-a-half backup stint with the Cowboys that resulted in a mid-November 2015 release, Weeden quickly hooked on with the Texans. He won two late-year injury fill-in starts, running the Houston offense competently enough to earn a backup job behind designated franchise quarterback Brock Osweiler. In the two starts, Weeden averaged a very soft 152.5 passing yards and 1.5 touchdown passes per game but completed a rock-solid 61.9 percent of his throws. Weeden, a fifth-year pro, has appeared in 34 career games (25 starts), amassing a 31:30 TD-to-INT ratio and a 57.4-percent completion percentage. While Weeden, who enters his age-33 season, can function as a somewhat competent NFL backup, fantasy owners should regard him as a weak streaming option, even with stud DeAndre Hopkins, rookie Will Fuller, Cecil Shorts and Lamar Miller in the team's offensive mix.

Passing: 9 Yards, 0 TD, 0 INT.
