Fantasy Analysis

Suiting up for his third team in three years, the "Bearded Bomber" is expected to serve as a "band-aid option" for the Texans. Although Fitzpatrick is regarded as one of the better backup quarterbacks in the NFL, his streakiness can drive fantasy owners up the wall. Last season, the average-armed Fitzpatrick made nine injury fill-in starts (played in 11 games overall) for the Tennessee Titans, averaging a bland 231.33 passing yards, 1.2 touchdown passes and 1.33 picks per contest. New Houston head coach/offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien, who served as an offensive assistant for New England Patriots' from 2007 through 2011, was expected to install a system that is very similar to the Patriots' complicated offense. The aging-but-still-capable Andre Johnson leads an overall unproven Texans receiver corps that includes DeAndre Hopkins, Garrett Graham and Ryan Griffin. It's hard to say how many games Fitzpatrick will start, but he likely will have some growing pains while learning O'Brien's system. Look for the Houston to lean heavily on Arian Foster early in the season. "Fitz Magic" likely will have some value only in deeper redraft leagues.

Passing: 3800 Yards, 24 TD, 22 INT.
Rushing: 200 Yards, 0 TD.
