Fantasy Football Quarterbacks to Own -
Matt Schaub is a solid quarterback that will put up decent numbers just about every week. He will not be the quarterback that will put you over the top, but will be consistent enough every week to plug him into your lineup as your starting fantasy football quarterback. If you prefer to focus on filling out your wide receivers and running backs in the earlier rounds passing on the elite fantasy football quarterbacks, Schaub should be there in the 4th or 5th round and will fill out your roster nicely.
Fantasy Football Running Backs to Own -
Arian Foster is the lead fantasy football running back that every team owner dreams of having. He can run over and around would be tacklers and has exceptional hands out of the backfield. If you have the opportunity to draft him to your FF team then you should do so without hesitation. The only argument that I can see for not taking him as the #1 overall fantasy football player in every draft is that Ben Tate is also in the Texans backfield and he will eat into some of his touches every week. This “timeshare” will not be enough to take away from his elite status. That being said it would be wise to take Tate in the later rounds of your draft as insurance for Foster in case of injury.
Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Own -
In 2011 Andre Johnson went through one of the toughest years he has had since entering the NFL. Multiple injuries limited his production and many fantasy football owners who spent high draft picks on him, watched their teams fall out of contention early in the season. Again, heading into camp he is not 100% and is still dealing with lingering injury issues. He should still be drafted as a number one wide receiver, but you should definitely not be reaching for him. If he makes it late into the 2nd round or anywhere in the 3rd take the gamble and get him on your squad.
Fantasy Football Tight Ends to Own -
Owen Daniels has been a top target for Schaub in Houston for years. He is a very solid fantasy tight end with great hands and decent speed. While his stat lines won’t wow you week in and week out he should be a solid contributor that will put up a consistent stat line every week. If you have already filled out your team and are in need of a tight end with upside, take Daniels if he is still available.
Fantasy Football Place Kicker to Own -
Shayne Graham is an accurate kicker that can be counted on for your fantasy football team. The Texans will move the ball well so he should see plenty of opportunities for both extra points and field goals in 2012. He will contribute consistent fantasy points every week so you should be on the lookout for him when kickers start coming off the board late in your draft.
Defense/ Special Teams -
The Texans defense as unit is outstanding. They hit the quarterback, cause turnovers, and put up points as well. The loss of Mario Williams does sting, but the emergence of players such as J.J. Watt made him a bit more expendable this off season. If you are targeting individuals from the Texans Brian Cushing is an excellent fantasy football IDP option along with the aforementioned J.J. Watt. I look to see Bradie James have a comeback year in 2012 as he teams back up with former head Coach Wade Phillips, now defensive coordinator in Houston.
