2019 Fantasy Football Projections: Houston Texans

- Updated: Monday, July 22nd


In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Houston Texans.

QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Deshaun Watson493.3330.54069.725.6511.3581.8441.73.68308.94
Watson's TD% regressed to a more normal 5.1% (from 9.3% as a rookie), but Watson stayed healthy for a full season and finished as fantasy's QB4 in 2018. Watson threw for 4,165 yards and 26 touchdowns and added 551 rushing yards and five more scores on the ground. If both Will Fuller and Keke Coutee are able to stay healthy, Watson has one of the best trios of receivers at his disposal.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Lamar Miller210.4915.25.2633.9247.51.27155.45
Miller was more efficient in 2018 (4.6 YPC) than he was in either of his first two seasons (4.0 in 2016 and 3.7 in 2017) in Houston. If D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) stays healthy, it's possible that Miller sees a year-over-year dip in workload even though he figures to enter the season as the 1 or 1(a) to Foreman's 1(b) or 2.
D'Onta Foreman149.6643.34.4919.9169.20.7112.39
Last year, I outgained Foreman by one rushing yard as the 235-pound back missed virtually all of 2018 and lost one yard on his seven carries. Feeling much better now, Foreman's battle to overtake Miller could be categorized more like a slight incline than an uphill battle.

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
DeAndre Hopkins97.81359.49.05000190.24
Hopkins said that he was the "most banged up I've ever been playing football" and started camp on the active/PUP list, but Hopkins set career highs last year in receptions (115) and yards (1,572) and scored 11 touchdowns. Despite not always having good quarterback play, which he has now with Deshaun Watson, Hopkins has at least 95 catches, 1,375 yards and 11 touchdowns in three of his past four seasons.
Will Fuller49.1726.75.162.311.50.05105.08
As the saying goes, the best ability is availability. Unavailable in more than half of the team's games, Fuller has played in just 14, 10 and seven games, respectively, in his first three NFL seasons. Playing in only 11 total games with Deshaun Watson, Fuller has 45 catches for 782 yards and 11 touchdowns in those 11 games. Extrapolating that per-game pace over 16 games, Fuller would have a stat line of 65/1,137/16.
Keke Coutee61.7678.73.391.260.0188.87
Playing in just seven regular-season and postseason games combined, Coutee ended his rookie season (11/110/1 on 14 targets) similar to how he started it (11/109 on 15 targets) -- both games against the Colts. If he stays healthy, Coutee could be poised for a breakout season.
