Note: The opinions expressed here are my takes on the Houston Texans' key players during the 2012 fantasy football season. As always, use your best judgment and conduct your own research on who to start or bench each week. You know your individual team and/or league situation better than anyone else. All statistics and point totals are based on Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football standard scoring system.
Matt Schaub, QB
Schaub finished Week 7 earning 18.04 fantasy points in a blowout win over the Baltimore Ravens. This week he faces a Buffalo Bills' defense that has given up a total of 150.48 fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. Schaub is far from being considered an elite fantasy quarterback but he is averaging 14.44 fantasy points per game. Look for around 15.00 fantasy points this week.
Arian Foster, RB
Foster finished the week earning 22.30 fantasy points against the Ravens. This week he faces a Bills' defense that has allowed a total of 191.20 fantasy points to running backs this season. Foster is one of the best running backs in the game and the Bills are among the worst against the run. Look for Foster to have a monster game scoring at least 25.00 fantasy points this week.
Andre Johnson, WR
Johnson finished the week earning 8.60 fantasy points against Baltimore. This week he faces a Buffalo defense that has given up a total of 195.60 fantasy points to wide receivers this season. Johnson has a great matchup against a terrible defense making it easy to expect at least 9.00 fantasy points this week.
Owen Daniels, TE
Daniels had another strong week earning 11.90 fantasy points against the Ravens. This week he faces a Bills' defense that has allowed a total of 48.60 fantasy points to tight ends this season. Daniels has been strong this season and the Bills' defense is horrible. Look for at least 5.00 fantasy points this week and obviously more if he finds the end zone.
Houston finished the week earning 20.00 fantasy points against Baltimore. This week they face a Buffalo team that has given up a total of 55.00 fantasy points to team defense this season. Houston has a solid home matchup against a team that will fumble and throw interceptions. Look for around 10.00 fantasy points this week.
