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)

Texans | Brock Osweiler a work in progress (Sat Jun 11, 08:06 PM) - Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler said he still has a 'long way to go' to learn head coach Bill O'Brien's system, but O'Brien said Osweiler has lived up to expectations thus far.

Our View: Osweiler didn't really develop that much during his time with the Broncos, so we're not expecting him to take great strides with the Texans. The team had better be ready for inconsistent QB play, because that's what Osweiler was during the seven games he started for the Broncos in 2015.
