Week 2: vs Jacksonville Jaguars

All TE vs JAX

FBG says: Good matchup. The Texans offense looked crisp in their Monday Night Football season opener against the Saints as they fell just short of the victory behind spectacular showings from DeShaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins. Watson was fearless under center as he made a number of impressive passes downfield despite being under constant pressure throughout the game. Watson was sacked six times behind a lower-tier offensive line that may have even underperformed their #20 ranking from Footballguys analyst Matt Bitonti coming into Week 1. New left tackle Laremy Tunsil certainly looked like he needs more time adjusting to his new team. Hopkins was the star of the show for this offense as he racked up 13 targets, hauling in eight of them for 111 yards and two touchdowns. He did drop a few passes early on, but the volume made up for it as no other wide receiver had more than three targets. It was Will Fuller and Kenny Stills getting the start with Keke Coutee sidelined from injury. Fuller made an impressive catch of 54 yards, but that was the extent of his involvement. Stills was a non-factor until catching a game-tying 37-yard touchdown with seconds remaining. If Coutee makes it back on the field this week, Stills will be relegated to WR4 duties. Running back Duke Johnson Jr. made a solid contribution in his debut with the Texans, showing flashes of what may be to come as he should be actively involved in the passing game for this offense. The Jaguars secondary struggled against the league's top offense last week as Patrick Mahomes lit them up for 378 passing yards and three touchdowns. Top cornerback Jalen Ramsey had a very rough debut as he was beaten on multiple occasions by Sammy Watkins, including a late touchdown where Watkins simply outplayed Ramsey. A.J. Bouye didn't look much better as all the Jaguars defensive backs struggled both in coverage and with tackling, often allowing extra yards after the catch. DeAndre Hopkins should see coverage from Ramsey, but Hopkins is one of the most matchup-proof wide receivers in the league. Rookie linebacker Quincy Williams also had a poor debut as he was slow in coverage, allowing Chiefs running back Damien Williams to run open at will. This poor showing bodes well for Duke Johnson, who was heavily involved in the passing game last week. The Jaguars safeties were also not much better as they had poor communication on a number of plays. They did help limit Travis Kelce to just three receptions from eight targets, but they gave up big plays of over 40 yards on two of those three receptions. The pass rush was also lackluster aside from rookie Josh Allen, who did achieve consistent pressure. While the Jaguars can get somewhat of a pass from Week 1 being against the likes of the Chiefs, they should not instill fear in a Texans passing offense with momentum from a solid Week 1 performance.
