Matt Schaub injury update: Status still unclear, fantasy owners shouldn't really care

Bob Levey

Matt Schaub will be an "end-of-the-week decision" for Week 7. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Texans will take an "end-of-the week" approach with Matt Schaub leading up to their Week 7 matchup with the Chiefs.

He missed some time on Sunday with a leg injury and finished with 186 passing yards on 15-of-21 attempts.  Schaub did not turn the ball over or have a TD before T.J. Yates came in and threw a pick six.

His 6.6 yards per attempt is by far his lowest since joining the Texans and he just hasn't been able to make the wise decisions. Of course, you've probably heard about his record-breaking streak of pick sixes in four consecutive games, and he's caused his team some games.

The team could go with Schaub, Yates or Case Keenum on Sunday.

Fantasy impact: There's really nothing to like here. The matchup against the Chiefs is not a good one and the team has been getting thumped in their four-game losing streak. The bigger impact is probably that fantasy owners want to put the Chiefs D in their lineups. For what it's worth, Andre Johnson should remain in all lineups.
