Matt Schaub putting on a clinic vs. Seahawks, off to a surprisingly strong fantasy day

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Matt Schaub and the Texans are moving the ball against the Seahawks. We break down the fantasy implications.

Matt Schaub has been productive in Week 4's game against the Seahawks, completing 17-of-27 passes for 226 yards and two scores. The Texans lead the Hawks 20-3 at the end of the first half.

The Seahawks have been getting a lot of push up front and Schaub has been under pressure, but he's been able to get the ball to his receivers. The Texans are racking up the yards after catch and despite Schaub getting hit six times, the Texans have not allowed a sack.

He hit Garrett Graham down the seam for a 31-yard TD and Arian Foster was wide open on a route out of the backfield for a five-yard score.

The Texans have been moving the ball extremely well on the ground with their duo of Ben Tate and Arian Foster. They have 98 rushing yards thanks to a yards-per-carry average of 5.2.

Fantasy impact: Chances are not many of you rolled the dice on Schaub considering how the Seahawks D has been devastating to opposing QBs. The Texans are a run-first team, so Schaub won't offer enough upside on a week-to-week basis.
