Fantasy football sit/start advice, Week 12: Case Keenum is deep option

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

We take a look at whether or not you should start Case Keenum in your fantasy league for Week 12.

Houston Texans quarterback Case Keenum will remain the starter for the team's Week 12 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Keenum replaced an inaccurate and ineffective Matt Schaub earlier in the season, and has played decent football. Keenum has only completed 55.6 percent of his passes, but he doesn't make any huge mistakes, either.

Keenum has completed 70 of 126 pass attempts for 992 yards with eight touchdowns against just a single interception. Unfortunately, he also has four fumbles on the season. So he does make mistakes, just not as many as Schaub, who threw multiple interceptions returned for touchdowns earlier in the season.

Fantasy Sit/Start: Keenum has been solid thus far, and should be solid going forward. It's unclear what the Texans actually want to do at the quarterback position, with head coach Gary Kubiak pulling Keenum in his last start in favor of Schaub before re-naming Keenum the starter.

That lack of confidence is worrying for fantasy owners going forward, but we know that Keenum will be the starter in this game, at least. He's not worth booting another option for if he happens to be available, but he is worth a roster spot if there's room. The Jaguars are a bad team, with the No. 24 pass defense in the NFL. Keenum is a deep start option in two-quarterback leagues at this point.
