The Texans may be set on their return specialist with Trindon Holliday for 2012. We break down the fantasy implications.

Trindon Holliday returned another kick for a touchdown Thursday night against the Vikings, this one on a punt return that was taken back for 76 yards in the third quarter. Holliday now has three return touchdowns in four games this preseason.

Analysis: Once he gets out in the open, there's no hope in catching Holliday. He may be tiny in stature, but he has blazing speed and great vision as a returner. Gary Kubiak has yet to give any assurance that Holliday will make the final roster as a return specialist, but it will be hard to deny him after tonight. He also has a 90-yard kickoff return and an 87-yard punt return for touchdowns, proving he can cover both areas well. The Texans have yet to even consider utilizing his skills in another area, and after fumbling twice last week Holliday will likely stick to the return game.
