2021 Houston Texans Fantasy Recap: Week 18
The march of a season has been long, but here we are. The lights go down and the fantasy champions are lavishly crowned. I personally managed to finish second in my silver league, first in my Twitter league and third in a friendly league. A total of approximately $300 in prize money has been accumulated this season. I can’t complain, and I certainly can’t say I’ve had a single Texas offensive player on any of my teams. However, there were a few weeks that the defense of the Texans proved useful! For the last time, let’s get into the numbers.
Week 18: (Texans vs. Titans)
QB: Davis Mills – 23/33, 301 yards, 3 TD, 12 yards on the ground = 27.24 dots
RB: David Johnson – 5 carries, 28 yards, 3 receptions, 8 yards = 6.6 points
RB: Rex Burkhead – 12 carries, 24 rushing yards, 3 receptions, 42 receiving yards = 9.6 points
WR: Brandin Cooks – 3 receptions, 26 yards = 5.6 points
WR: Nico Collins – 3 receptions, 67 yards = 9.7 points
WR: Chris Moore – 3 receptions, 38 yards, 1 TD = 12.8 points
WR: Danny Amendola – 7 receptions, 113 yards, 2 TDs = 32.3 points
TE: Anthony Auclair – 1 receptions, 7 yards = 1.7 points
K: Ka’imi Fairbairn – 1/1 FG, 2/2 XP, 31 long= 5 points
DEF: 5 TFL, 1 sack, 7 QB hits, 28 points awarded = 0 dots
In a Week 18 surprise, Danny Amendola had a vintage performance and turned in monster numbers. Brandin Cooks took a back seat as Davis Mills started to throw the ball in the second half. Many of his performances have been Jekyll/Hyde-like contrasts between the halves.
The defense gave up too many points to move the needle and could have proved costly in league games. Hopefully this side of the ball will be a little different after a draft that could see us score an elite rushing pass.
Ka’imi Fairbairn is to be pushed into training camp next year. As simple as that.
We meet after the repechage to plan who could be usable on the rosters next year. Until then, plan your fantastic investments this year.
