Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 3: Brock Osweiler looks to rebound from slow start

Brock Osweiler is good enough to make DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller look good, but he is still a bad fantasy quarterback.

It remains unclear if the Houston Texans have finally found their franchise quarterback.

Though they signed Brock Osweiler to a big free agent deal this offseason, he has been very erratic through the first two games. Osweiler has completed just 60.3 percent of his passes for 499 yards and three scores vs. three interceptions.

While Osweiler has been effective enough to keep DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller producing like big-time receivers, his numbers are not what you want from a starting fantasy quarterback.

Now, Osweiler will face a New England Patriots defense that has allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks. Even with those struggles, Osweiler is not a good fantasy play this week in New England.

Fantasy Impact: Osweiler is currently ranked as the 24th-best quarterback by Yahoo! He is easily one of the worst quarterbacks to start this week, so keep him on the bench for this matchup.
