Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 11 vs NYJ (16 / 34 / 229 / 2 / 0 pass, 3 / -5 / 0 rush)

It was flashbacks to 2011 and T.J. Yates put together another big game to push the Texans into the win column. Yates lived large and went deep to DeAndre Hopkins for both of his touchdown passes. He missed Hopkins early in the 1st quarter on a double move when he beat Revis deep. He made up for it on a 61-yard deep post to Hopkins in stride when he beat Revis. Yates also hit Hopkins on a 20 yard touchdown pass down the right side of the numbers for another game changing play. Yates was not helped out early by three drops from his receivers and he played the underneath throws majority of the game. Yates had 20 throws 9 yards or less on the day and completed nine of them with his biggest throw to Cecil Shorts for 35 yards. Yates had stretches where he was living dangerous and had three consecutive plays in the second quarter that resulted in a sack, that was him holding the ball too long, and two near interceptions on wild throws. This has been Yates game as a starter, play the dump off game and swing big with deep throws and it paid off in a big way on Sunday vs. the Jets.

2015 Week 10 vs CIN (5 / 11 / 69 / 1 / 0 pass, 2 / -2 / 0 rush)

He came in relief when Hoyer was knocked out with a concussion, and he had the biggest throw of the night to DeAndre Hopkins on a fade route for a 22-yard one-handed touchdown reception. He lived dangerous in his limited time late in the game and was focused on Hopkins which lead to some suspect throws. He did hit some big throws late for first downs to keep the clock ticking on throws to Nate Washington for 13 yards and Ryan Griffin for 15 yards. For only being in the offense for two weeks, Yates came in a did what he was supposed to.


Latest News

Texans | T.J. Yates remains No. 2 quarterback (Mon Nov 23, 01:57 AM) - Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates led the team to a second straight win in Week 11, but head coach Bill O'Brien said Sunday, Nov. 22, that when QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) is healthy Yates will head back to the bench. 'Hoyer is our starter,' O'Brien said. 'When he comes back, when he's healthy, he'll come back in there and we've spoken to T.J. about that.'

Our View: Yates is a valuable veteran backup, but the team has been clear that Hoyer is their starter. Neither are great fantasy options unless you play in 2QB/QB-flex leagues.

Texans | T.J. Yates to start in Week 11 (Fri Nov 20, 07:37 PM) - Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates will start in Week 11 against the New York Jets with QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) sidelined.

Our View: Yates is a seasoned veteran, and honestly it's not a huge downgrade from Hoyer. The team should have a gameplan in place where Yates targets DeAndre Hopkins early and often. It's a tough matchup against the Jets, but we feel Hopkins should still produce around WR1 levels. Nobody is starting Yates unless you play in a deep QB-flex/2-QB league.

Texans | Brian Hoyer unlikely to start (Wed Nov 18, 06:12 PM) - Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) is unlikely to start in Week 11 against the New York Jets, according to sources, which means QB T.J. Yates is expected to start.

Our View: Nothing is set in stone right now, but fantasy owners need to move forward as if Hoyer is out. That's a slight downgrade for DeAndre Hopkins, but we feel Yates will force feed the ball to the superstar wide receiver.

Texans | T.J. Yates leads team to win (Tue Nov 17, 12:41 AM) - Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates completed five of his 11 pass attempts for 69 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 10 win against the Cincinnati Bengals, subbing for the injured QB Brian Hoyer (concussion).
