Houston Texans Fantasy Football 2021 Recap: Week 13
Every week that I watch our Houston Texans take the field, I have to remind myself that we are in a dark time and my expectations should be low. In a way, this team continues to find new and inventive ways to disappoint. In last week’s shutout loss to the Colts, where we saw Davis Mills take the wheel, there wasn’t much to look forward to in terms of fantasy. Let’s get into the numbers.
Week 13: (Texans v Colts)
QB: Tyrod Taylor – 5/13, 45 yards, 15 yards rushing, INT = 1.3 points.
QB: Davis Mills – 6/14, 49 yards, 11 yards rushing = 3.6 points.
RB: Jaylen Samuels – 2 carries, 2 rushing yards = 0.2 point.
RB: Rex Burkhead – 8 carries, 30 yards rushing, 1 receiving, 15 yards receiving = 4.5 points.
RB: Royce Freeman – 3 carries, 10 rushing yards, 1 receiving, 11 receiving yards = 3.1 points.
WR: Brandin Cooks – 3 receptions, 38 yards, 16 yards rushing = 8.4 points.
TE: Brevin Jordan – 2 receptions, 7 yards = 2.7 points.
TE: Pharaoh Brown – 4 receptions, 23 yards = 4.3 points
DEF: 5 TFL, 1 sack, INT, 1 fumble recovered, 31 points awarded = 2 points.
In what may have been the worst offensive and fantastic performance of the season, no one could have made a major contribution in a fantastic team. Davis Mills didn’t give Tyrod Taylor any thumbs up as they looked statistically identical. The ball carriers could not find a place to run.
Brandin Cooks should have been traded; he doesn’t deserve this. The tight ends were again split almost perfectly even though the attack had nowhere to go. Ka’imi Fairbairn didn’t even get a chance to miss a placement this week.
The Houston defense saved themselves with a salvage fumble. The best thing you can say about them is that they did not end in a negative result.
Looking at next week, I would advise staying away from any fancy Texan prospect. Literally any of them. Well, that’s if that wasn’t obvious enough already.
