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."

Change for Texans doesn't change status of T.J. Yates


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2013) Texans backup quarterback T.J. Yates will remain the backup despite Matt Schaub being ruled out for Sunday with an injury. Gary Kubiak has chosen never-used Case Keenum to start over Yates in Kansas City.

Yates was unimpressive in taking over for Schaub in Week 6 against St. Louis. He completed 12 of 17 passes for just 98 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. He was also sacked twice and fumbled.


Texans quarterbacks are Fantasy poison in Kansas City


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2013) Let's make this simple. It doesn't matter which of the three quarterbacks plays for the Texans in Kansas City on Sunday. Fantasy owners shouldn't have any of them in their lineups.

Starter Matt Schaub has been a pick-prone train wreck most of the year and is dealing with a foot injury. Neither T.J. Yates or Case Keenum has proven enough in the NFL to earn enough trust to even be picked up off the waiver wire.

Add all that to the fact that the undefeated Chiefs are ranked first in the NFL in points allowed (65), turnovers (18), interceptions (10) and passing yards yielded per attempt (4.6) and it becomes clear that no Houston quarterback is worthy of Fantasy attention in Week 7.

It would be wise to leave Schaub on your bench even if deemed healthy enough to play.


Texans to make QB decision at end of week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2013) Texans coach Gary Kubiak said Monday "we probably got a little bit lucky there" when talking about the leg injury quarterback Matt Schaub sustained Sunday against the Rams.

"Matt is getting injections as we speak. Leg, ankle, everywhere," Kubiak said.

Kubiak wouldn't rule out Schaub for Week 7 at Kansas City. However, he said he will evaluate Schaub by the end of the week to see if he can start Sunday. Kubiak added both backup quarterbacks -- T.J. Yates and Case Keenum -- will prepare this week.


T.J. Yates does not impress in relief


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) Texans quarterback T.J. Yates got his shot in Week 6 against the Rams, but not because Matt Schaub's struggles continued. Instead, Yates was pressed into action in the second half of Sunday's 38-13 loss, after Schaub went down with a leg injury.

Yates didn't do much better than the much maligned Schaub, despite the home crowd's apparent pleasure at his entrance into the game. Yates' first two drives ended with interceptions, the first of which was returned 98 yards for a touchdown.

Yates finished with 98 yards on 11 of 15 passing, with the two interceptions and no touchdowns. The severity of Schaub's injury is not yet known, but Yates could be in line for his first start of the season in Week 7, in Kansas City. 


Report: Texans not afraid to change QBs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) Though the Texans gave Matt Schaub a vote of confidence this week, things could change quickly if Schaub struggles yet again in Week 6 against the Rams.

NFL.com reports Sunday the team is willing to bench Schaub and replace him with backup T.J. Yates if Schaub has another poor performance Sunday. According to the report, the team has already come close to make the decision to replace Schaub with Yates, on the heels of Schaub throwing a pick six in four straight games, a league record.

If Schaub gets off to a slow start Sunday, he could even be benched mid-game, as the 2-3 team reportedly has plenty of confidence in Yates' abilities. 


T.J. Yates doesn't make strong case


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2013) Texans backup quarterback T.J. Yates replaced struggling Matt Schaub early in the fourth quarter of the loss at San Francisco but was unable to lead a scoring drive. Yates went 3 of 5 for 15 yards.

Yates faces the Rams in Week 6.


T.J. Yates lands backup job with Texans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2013) Texans quarterback T.J. Yates responded to the competition this preseason and was rewarded with the backup job, reports the Houston Chronicle.

Yates, who was pushed by Case Keenum, completed 35 of 50 passes for 417 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in the preseason.

"T.J. answered the bell," said Gary Kubiak.

So did Keenum, who completed 43 of 63 for 482 yards, three touchdowns and no picks.


Yates could lose job


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2013) The Houston Chronicle reports that Texans coach Gary Kubiak predicted that Case Keenum, who spent his rookie season last year on the practice squad, is “going to push” T. J. Yates for the backup quarterback job behind Matt Schaub. “Everybody’s always competing,” Kubiak said. “Case has obviously made up a bunch of ground from the standpoint of what he knows and what he can handle as a player.”
