Tom Savage has 'closed the gap'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien said rookie quarterback Tom Savage has "closed the gap" with No. 2 quarterback Case Keenum. Savage hit 5 of 6 passes for 68 yards and a touchdown against the Broncos on Saturday, while Keenum went 11 of 18 for 74 yards.

Bill O'Brien not ruling out change in QB rotation


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien did not rule out a change in the quarterback rotation when asked about it Sunday, reports Pro Football Talk. Starter Ryan Fitzpatrick went 6 of 14 for 55 yards with two interceptions in Saturday's 32-0 loss to Arizona, while backups Case Keenum and Tom Savage combined to go 5 of 8 for 43 yards.

"I think you’re always thinking about what you can do to make the team better," O’Brien said. "So any time you have a chance to review things and regroup a little bit on a day off like it is today, as a head coach, you’re always thinking about things that can make the team better, whether that’s a change in the depth chart, a change in a scheme, a change of a position of a player, whatever it may be. We’ll continue to discuss that today."

Case Keenum ahead of Tom Savage in battle of backups


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) In the battle to back up Ryan Fitzpatrick, quarterback Case Keenum is getting more reps than rookie Tom Savage, reports the Houston Chronicle. Coach Bill O'Brien said Savage will get a legitimate shot.

"Tommy gets a lot of reps on his own because we do a two-spot drill (with two quarterbacks throwing at the same time to different receivers) early in practice," O'Brien said. “It balances itself out. We’ll take however many practices we need to determine who’s the backup quarterback. We’ll take our time with that."


Ryan Fitzpatrick named Texans starter


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien named Ryan Fitzpatrick the starting quarterback, the official team website reports Tuesday.

Fitzpatrick was expected to battle rookie Tom Savage for the job in training camp, but O'Brien has apparently seen enough to trust Fitzpatrick with the role now.

"He's a guy that earned the job," O'Brien said.

Savage will now compete with Case Keenum and T.J. Yates for the No. 2 job. O'Brien said "I don't know" when asked if he will carry two or three quarterbacks on the roster this season.


Texans continue to evaluate quarterbacks


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/16/2014) The Texans' quarterbacks -- all four of them between Ryan Fitzpatrick, Tom Savage, T.J. Yates and Case Keenum -- continue to be a work in progress, reports the Houston Chronicle.

Coach Bill O'Brien said that Fitzpatrick, the expected Week 1 starter, had a "decent offseason" and has done a good job of picking a new offense. But O'Brien said the quarterback competition is wide open.

"T.J. and Case ... they've also done a good job," O'Brien said. "Savage is a rookie. He's a little bit behind. But you can see he's got some tools. He can throw the football and he works extremely hard."

The backup position is expected to come down to Keenum and Yates. But O'Brien didn't rule out Savage for the spot.

"I don't know. We'll see. We'll let it play out a little bit," O'Brien said.


Texans could cut a quarterback


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/9/2014) The Texans may enter training camp with only three quarterbacks on the roster, coach Bill O’Brien said Monday per the Houston Chronicle.

Veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick is the Texans' expected Week 1 starter and signed a two-year, $7 million deal this offseason. Rookie Tom Savage was a fourth-round pick and is being groomed by O’Brien to eventually take over the position.

If the Texans trim their roster either T.J. Yates or Case Keenum is expected to be the odd man out.


Texans' quarterback job is 'wide open'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Four quarterbacks have a chance to start the Texans' season opener, reports the Houston ChronicleRyan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum, T.J. Yates and rookie Tom Savage are all in the running and the job is "wide open," coach Bill O'Brien said after the first day of OTAs.

"These guys are good guys, they’ve been fun to coach," O’Brien said. "(Quarterbacks coach) George Godsey’s done a great job with them. And I think they’ve enjoyed learning this offense and they’re competing. It looks like there’s good chemistry in the room, which is important in the quarterback room. I’ve been impressed with these guys, the way they work at it."


Texans select QB Tom Savage in Round 4


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2014) With the No. 135 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans selected quarterback Tom Savage from Pittsburgh.

The 6-foot-4, 228-pound pocket passer has the strong arm that head coach Bill O'Brien wanted in the draft. He completed 61 percent of his passes for 2,958 yards with 21 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 2013 for the Panthers.

Savage will join a group that has Case Keenum, Ryan Fitzpatrick and T.J. Yates currently at quarterback.

Ravens could be interested in T.J. Yates, Case Keenum


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2014) The Ravens are "keeping an eye on" Texans quarterbacks T.J. Yates and Case Keenum, in case they're released following the draft, reports the Baltimore Sun. Baltimore is not committed to Tyrod Taylor as its backup quarterback.

T.J. Yates, Case Keenum will battle for one spot


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/7/2014) Texans backup quarterbacks T.J. Yates and Case Keenum are expected to compete for one roster spot this summer, the Houston Chronicle reports. The Texans figure to draft a quarterback in early May and have already signed Ryan Fitzpatrick to a contract this spring. 

Texans' O'Brien talks quarterback competition


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) The Texans are expected to draft a quarterback with the top overall pick in May's NFL draft. But whoever it is will have to compete for the job, so says head coach Bill O'Brien via the Houston Chronicle

"They've been told they're going to be given a shot to compete," O'Brien said of passers Ryan Fitzpatrick, T.J. Yates and Case Keenum. "They've all been told basically the same thing -- they're going to be given a shot to compete. We brought Fitzy in and had a good talk with him. We told him nothing's guaranteed, that he's being brought in to compete, to get better every day and try to be the starting quarterback. They all have starting experience. The deal is competition."


Case Keenum unable to play in finale


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Texans quarterback Case Keenum is inactive for Week 17 against the Titans, as a result of a thumb injury. Keenum had been considered questionable coming into the game, and a decision was made to sit him after pregame warm-ups.

Matt Schaub will get the start in Keenum's place. 


Fantasy owners should avoid Texans' quarterbacks


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2013) Despite being less than 24 hours away, the Texans still don't seem to know who will be starting at quarterback for Week 17 against the Titans.  If Case Keenum is healthy enough to play through a right thumb injury, he will; unfortunately, Keenum is listed on the injury report as questionable for Sunday's game.

If Keenum cannot game, the team will likely turn to Matt Schaub, though neither is a particularly strong Fantasy option against a solid Titans passing defense. Though Schaub did rack up 25 Fantasy points against the Titans in a Week 2 matchup, only one opponent has even reached 20 against the Titans in 14 other games.

Given that we don't even know who will be starting, the Texans' quarterback situation should be considered toxic. Against a tough matchup, Fantasy owners should steer clear in Week 17.

Wade Phillips yet to decide on starter if Case Keenum out


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2013) Wade Phillips has yet to decide who will start at quarterback for the Texans in Week 17 at Tennessee if Case Keenum (thumb) is inactive, per the Houston Chronicle.

Case Keenum out, Matt Schaub in as Texans starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) A torn thumb ligament will sideline Texans quarterback Case Keenum from action Sunday against Denver and place Matt Schaub back in as the starter, per NFL.com.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Case Keenum off target in blowout loss


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Trying his best to stay upright on a day when the Colts sacked him four times, Texans quarterback Case Keenum struggled with his accuracy Week 15 at Indianapolis, completing 18 of 34 passes for 168 yards. It was his fourth game in five with less 200 passing yards. He has completed just 53.0 percent of his passes during that stretch.

For the third time in four games, Keenum went without a touchdown pass, and he hit a new low with two interceptions, getting picked twice by Darius Butler.

It was a stark contrast to the last time he faced the Colts in Week 9, when he threw for 350 yards and three touchdowns in what was arguably the best game of his young career. He'll look to get back on track Week 16 against the Broncos -- a team that has given up plenty of yards through the air this season.


Case Keenum fine for Week 15


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Texans quarterback Case Keenum, who was listed as probable Friday because of an injury to his left shoulder, is active for Week 15 at Indianapolis. He didn't miss any practice time because of the injury.

Keenum is looking to bounce back from a three-game stretch during which he has thrown three interceptions to just one touchdown pass.


Only two not probable on long Texans injury list


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) The Texans are quite healthy heading into their Sunday game against Indianapolis. Only tight end Garrett Graham (hamstring) and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) are questionable. The rest are probable.

The offensive probables include quarterback Case Keenum (shoulder) and running back Ben Tage (ribs). The others are fullback Greg Jones (knee), tackle Derek Newton (knee), guard Wade Smith (knee) and quarterback T.J. Yates (back). 


Case Keenum looking to relive Week 9


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/10/2013) Though Texans quarterback Case Keenum has been in hot water recently, getting relieved by Matt Schaub two of the last four weeks, he's expected to start Week 15 at Indianapolis. And if recent history is any indication, it's a good matchup for him. Making just his second career start, Keenum threw for 350 yards and three touchdowns against the Colts in Week 9.

Generally speaking, the Colts have been middle-of-the-road against the pass. They've allowed 241.5 passing yards per game and have given up the 13th-most Fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. They've also failed to generate much of a pass rush over their last six games, averaging 1.5 sacks.

Still, averaging just 192.5 passing yards with two touchdowns to four interceptions over his last four games, Keenum is a risky start regardless of the matchup. Of the three CBSSports.com Fantasy Football analysts, Dave Richard ranks him the highest at 20th among quarterbacks.
