Matt Schaub put up four touchdowns against the Broncos. We break down the fantasy implications.

Matt Schaub put up big numbers for his fantasy owners in Week 3 against the Broncos. He completed 17 of 30 passes for 290 yards and four touchdowns, with just one interception on the afternoon.

Fantasy Impact: Schaub only had one touchdown on the season heading into Week 3, but he exploded on the road in Denver, leading his team to victory as they relied on his arm. A 60-yard touchdown to Andre Johnson and a 52-yard touchdown to Kevin Walter highlighted his performance, so you shouldn't expect these numbers to repeat every week. Still, if Schaub can make of the most of the chances he gets, he could be worth a start regularly. The Texans love running the ball, but don't sleep on Schaub's ability.
