Which Houston Texans to target in fantasy football


It’s never too early to get your big fantasy football boards ready. Unfortunately for Houston Texan fans, according to Pro Football Focus, they may have to look elsewhere for players.

PFF ranked the top 150 fantasy football players, and only one Texan made the not-so-short list.

At number 54 is veteran receiver Brandin Cooks – the 26th player ruled out.

After rushing for over 1,000 yards in six of his eight NFL seasons, 54 seems low. Especially considering he still had 1,037 yards in 2021 when he was on the league’s worst offense by total yards.

With improvements seemingly on the horizon for Houston’s offense now that quarterback Davis Mills’ rookie year is in the rearview mirror, Pep Hamilton has taken over as offensive coordinator, the offensive line has been improved and new weapons have been added at all levels. , in theory, 2022 should be a good year for cooks.

This perhaps overly optimistic projection is apparently seen by others at CBS who also had three reporters who each listed their top 200.

Here, Cooks is ranked 30th, 30th and 38th.

However, other Texans are also present.

Rookie running back Dameon Pierce ranks 84th, 85th and 109th. Many expect the fourth-round pick to take over starting duties sooner rather than later for a running game that was among the league’s worst in 2021.

Texas running back Marlon Mack ranked 132nd, 157th and 174th. Mack is another newcomer after spending the past five seasons with the Indianapolis Colts.

Cooks wasn’t the only Texan to make the lists either, with runner-up Nico Collins ranked 139th, 173rd and 194th. Rookie receiver John Metchie III, who is expected to take over in the slot, made two of the lists at 180 and 189.

Those same two rosters also saw running back Rex Burkhead make the cut at 182 and 190.

Sophomore tight end Brevin Jordan made a top 200 at No. 190.
