Quick fantasy outlook: T.J. Yates is expected to be the Texans primary backup quarterback to Matt Schaub for the second year in a row. He saw time as the starter in 2011 after Matt Schaub went down with a foot injury in week eleven. He finished the year with 3 touchdowns and 3 interceptions en route to a 2-3 record as a starter. Houston limped into the playoffs losing three straight games, however Yates was able to guide the team to a wild card win over Cincinnati. As a starter, he has a career completion percentage of 62.1%. In the past, he had a tendency of locking on to his receivers, giving the defense a clear indication of where he was going with his passes. Matt Schaub handled all but ten pass attempts in 2012, which didn't allow Yates to showcase any improvement he may have achieved as he continues to gain experience as a pro quarterback. Yates, a former sixth round pick, is a decent but not great backup option. He knows the offense well and has the ability to manage a game. If he is forced to see action under center, look for a ground controlled game plan with timely high percentage passes that limit mistakes and turnovers.
