Summary

Brock Osweiler was handpicked in the offseason by the Houston Texans in hopes that he will be the answer to their quarterback dilemma that has plagued them for several years. Osweiler is entering his fourth year as a pro, however he has only eight games started under his belt. For three years he learned under the guidance and tutelage of soon to be Hall of Fame quarterback, Peyton Manning. Osweiler has a world class arm and can make every throw a pro quarterback needs to make. He has gained valuable experience in his decision making skills and he possesses one of the quicker releases in the game. The potential is there for him to thrive in a new offense and learn from a new coaching staff. He has above average receiving weapons led by DeAndre Hopkins, a shiny new running back in Lamar Miller and a team and fan base that desperately wants him to succeed. The only question is, will he do it? Can he break the mold of the average Houston quarterback who does enough to have intermittent fantasy value, but not enough to be a consistent weekly fantasy start? Time will tell. The Texans invested more than an eight game starter is worth, but sometimes a gamble leads to a big payoff. Osweiler is worth a late round fantasy pick as your QB2, who is capable of climbing up the ranks and becoming a fantasy starter. (May 18)
