Week 12: vs New Orleans Saints

All WR vs NO

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Brian Hoyer (141/237 for 1,704 yards passing, 13 TDs vs. just four interceptions thrown during seven appearances) has played pretty well when starting for the Texans this season - and he's very simpatico with DeAndre Hopkins, a must-have for any Texans' quarterback as Hopkins is THE key playmaker on the offense now (135 targets for 76/1,045/9 receiving to date). Last week, with Hoyer sidelined, Hopkins commanded 12 targets for 5/118/2 receiving; Cecil Shorts was second on the team with five passes for 2/51/0 receiving, while Alfred Blue actually caught a TD pass (three targets for 3/34/1). The Texans aren't stacked with talent this year, but Hoyer is making a silk purse out of what there is to be had down there in steamy Houston. The Saints' pass D is historically bad this year, averaging 293.1 net passing yards allowed per game (31st in the NFL) with a gigantic 28 passing scores given up vs. just four interceptions generated (yup that's tied for league worst). They are at the tip-top of the list (ie. most generous defense) in all areas of fantasy points allowed per game in this phase over the past four weeks - first in points allowed to QBs (36.3); fourth in points allowed to WRs (31.0 per game); and first in points allowed to tight ends (17.5). Good luck to new defensive coordinator Dennis Allen cause he's gonna need it! This is an outstanding matchup for Hoyer/Hopkins.
