Week 3: vs Houston Texans

All RB vs HOU

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. The Patriots are (most likely) reduced to starting their third-string, rookie quarterback from N.C. State, Jacoby Brissett, on Thursday night - look for him to hand off to LeGarrette Blount (23/129/1 rushing vs. Miami last week) and James White (4/19/0 rushing with four targets for 2/10/0 receiving) a whole lot against the pass-rushing/blitz-happy Texans. The running game will be the heart of the offense on Thursday night. The Texans' rush D isn't very generous to opposing backs, averaging 14.8 fantasy points allowed to opposing backs per game (eighth-least in the NFL through 2 games). They have averaged 96 yards rushing allowed per game and given up just one rushing score - last week, the Chiefs were limited to 19/119/0, with almost half of that total coming on two long runs by Spencer Ware (25 yards) and Charcandrick West (28 yards). This looks like a tough matchup for Blount and White - the Texans will concentrate on stuffing the run and dare Brissett to throw the football against their top-five pass D.
