Lestar Jean and Keshawn Martin will be the backup wide receivers for the Texans in Week 1. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Houston Texans released their first depth chart for Week 1, with Lestar Jean and Keshawn Martin listed as the No. 3 and 4 receivers behind Andre Johnson and Kevin Walter. Martin began to pull away from the remaining wide receivers in preseason play, but Jean is still right in contention for playing time.

Fantasy Impact: Martin looked like an impressive slot weapon for the Texans leading up to the regular season. The rookie caught two passes and made his name known to his new organization. Jean, a former undrafted free agent, also had several strong performances in his playing time, taking reps with the first-team and holding his own. Aside from Andre Johnson, it's tough to tell who with see enough targets to make an impact for fantasy owners. Arian Foster sees a fair amount of passes thrown his way too, so owners should wait to see if anyone pulls away among the backups.
