Ryan Mallett was traded to the Houston Texans for a conditional sixth round pick a few days before the start of the 2014 season. His connection to Texans Head Coach and former Offensive Coordinator in New England, Bill O'Brien means that he already has an understanding of the Houston offense. Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to be the team's starting quarterback, but Mallett is undoubtedly being groomed to take over if necessary or when he's ready. From a fantasy perspective, the strong-armed Mallett could be the Texans starting quarterback at some point this season and potentially their quarterback of the future. Mallett's ability to stretch the field benefits Andre Johnson, DeAndre Hopkins and the rest of the Texans receiving corps. Watch this situation carefully. Mallett has the ability and potential to be an above average passer in the league worthy of fantasy consideration.
