Matt Schaub practices all week, will start for fantasy owners

Rob Carr

Houston Texans quarterback Matt Shaub did not skip a beat in practice prior to Week 4. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub (ankle) fully participated in the team's practices from Wednesday through Friday and will start against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 4.

Fantasy impact: Schaub has been in the second-tier of fantasy quarterbacks for a few years. With star receiver Andre Johnson (shin) battling injury and most likely lining up against Seawhawks star cornerback Richard Sherman, Schaub will need to hook up with DeAndre Hopkins and tight end Owen Daniels more often this week.

After averaging over 300 passing yards and three touchdowns in the first two games of the season, Schaub failed to find the end zone against the Baltimore Ravens last week. He also threw for less than 200 yards, which might be somewhat disconcerting for fantasy owners going into a tougher matchup against Seattle.

If you are one of those fantasy owners fortunate enough to carry another quarterback that is equal in value to Schaub, this may be one of those weeks you consider keeping Schaub on your bench in favor of someone else. That's especially true knowing Johnson may see a limited role in the game.
