The Houston Texans are staring the first pick in the NFL Draft square in the face, but there could still be some production on their offense this week. They were embarrassed on national TV in a loss to the Jaguars and Ben Tate disappeared. Their offense went pass-heavy, which spelled trouble from the start considering how terrible their quarterbacks have been in the interception department. That caused Tate to finish with just 53 rushing yards on 14 carries.
Hopefully, the team learned a lesson and they will go back to running the ball more. Sure, teams usually have to throw to come back on the scoreboard, but the Texans don't really have that luxury to do that with their tendency to turn the ball over.
Fantasy impact: The Texans get to travel to face the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium. Even though the Colts have been shredded lately, they still rank 15th in fantasy points allowed to back. That's a little misleading based on how the Colts have given up at least 23 fantasy points to running back groups over the last five games. Tate should be viewed as an RB2 with a lot of risk and a nice ceiling after his three-touchdown game two weeks ago.
