Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 14: Case Keenum has little appeal

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Case Keenum and the Texans aren't exactly a powerhouse, but fantasy owners might not care in a solid matchup on Thursday.

What year is it again? The Houston Texans have been playing like it's 2003 and they've quickly moved to last place in the NFL. They're on a 10-game losing streak and are tanking well enough to make some NBA teams jealous.

In the center of it all is quarterback Case Keenum. He's been playing well, putting up season numbers of 7.5 yards per attempt, an 8:3 TD:INT ratio and a very respectable 86.1 passer rating.

They will get a chance at redemption this week against the Jacksonville Jaguars this week. Houston lost at home and Keenum had one of his least productive games of his season. He had a season-low 169 passing yards, no TDs and one pick for a season-low 54.7 passer rating.

Fantasy impact: The Texans have a couple players that are basically must-start options like Andre Johnson and Ben Tate, but that doesn't mean their quarterback is a decent option. He'll be on a short leash and a bad night could mean it'll be Matt Schaub's show. Keenum is a must-bench player in almost any league.
