Week 12: vs New Orleans Saints

All RB vs NO

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. The Texans' backs have engineered the league's 29th-ranked rushing 'attack', with a total of 908 yards rushing and four rushing TDs over 10 games - they average a paltry 3.3 yards a carry as a group, too. As a team they did post 37/123/0 rushing on the Jets, but the top back of the committee, Alfred Blue, had just 21/58/0 (but he added 3/34/1 receiving for a rare TD by a Texans' back). Jonathan Grimes posted 6/37/0 rushing and 3/28/0 receiving in his change-of-pace role last week. With Brian Hoyer coming back under center, the Texans' rushing attack may have a little more room to operate as Hoyer has been able to challenge defenses vertically this season. The Saints' defense is so horrible that they got Rob Ryan (finally!) fired - the new defensive coordinator Dennis Allen, who was previously handling third-down defense in particular for the Saints' unit. We'll see if he can improve on their 29th-ranked unit that averages 131.2 rushing yards allowed per game (with seven rushing scores handed out to date). Over the past four weeks, the Saints average 27.9 fantasy points allowed to opposing runners per game, the most given up to opposing backs during that time frame. This is a good matchup even for the under-achieving Texans' stable of backs.
