Houston Texans rookie quarterback Case Keenum throws for 350 yards and three touchdowns on Sunday Night Football in the Week 9 loss to 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 350 yards and three touchdowns. He added three rushes for 26 yards. All of Keenum's touchdowns went to wide receiver Andre Johnson, who had his best game of the year with the rookie under center. In two games, Keenum has thrown for 621 yards and four touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: Keenum did most of his damage in the first half but he has put together two good games against very good football teams. His passer rating in the Colts game was 123.4 and he looked in command for most of the game. It's an impressive beginning to the Keenum era in Houston and he should be owned in all leagues as a bye week replacement or a possible option. The Texans travel to Arizona to face the Cardinals in Week 10.
