Houston Texans quarterback Case Keenum is set to make his third consecutive start in the team's Week 10 game against the Arizona Cardinals. Keenum got his first start in Week 7 in place of the struggling Matt Schaub. Schaub is now healthy enough to return, but the Texans brass has decided to stick with Keenum for the time being.
Schaub didn't set the bar very high for Keenum to begin with. With the Texans in the midst of a likely lost season at 2-6, there is a strong possibility that Schaub has played his last game with Houston if Keenum can keep the momentum going. Keenum had a solid, interception-less game in his first start against the Kansas City Chiefs and their elite defense. He then built on that solid foundation and went off last week to the tune of 350 yards passing, three touchdowns and no interceptions.
Fantasy Impact: Keenum's play in his first two starts have been promising to say the least. However, owners shouldn't yet jump the gun and roll with the NCAA's all-time leader in total passing yards, touchdowns and completions as their sole fantasy quarterback. Keenum makes for a solid QB2 play with upside and owners in two-quarterback leagues could do a lot worse.
