Houston Texans quarterback Case Keenum throws for 208 yards and three touchdowns in the first half of Sunday Night Football against the Indianapolis Colts. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Houston Texans un-drafted free agent rookie quarterback Case Keenum made his second start of the year on Sunday Night Football against the Indianapolis Colts and lit up the field throwing for 208 yards and three touchdowns in the first half. Keenum found Andre Johnson deep right on the third play from scrimmage for a beautiful 62 yard touchdown pass. He would look for him again across the middle later in the first quarter for a 41 yard touchdown pass. In the closing minutes of the first half, he found Johnson again for a five yard touchdown pass.

Fantasy impact: Keenum is owned in only 8% of fantasy leagues per Yahoo but that could change quickly as the rookie is lighting it up. He had a good first game against a tough Kansas City Chiefs defense in Week 8 and already looks confident in the Texans offense. Keenum and Andre Johnson also appear to be comfortable and have hooked up on seven receptions already. Keenum is looking like the real deal and should be picked up in all leagues.
