NFL: AFC Wild Card-Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

This training camp the Texans are trying to sort out their secondary, their offensive line, the tight end position, and now their backup running back situation. This year’s training camp is different than the usual training camps, because the Texans are set at the wide receiver position and at quarterback.

Pro Football Focus recently look a look at each team’s wide receiver group, and ranked them, because this is what they do, and what we read to feed our lust for content that can never be satiated. Here is what they had to say:

5. Houston Texans

Deandre Hopkins came in as our top-ranked wide receiver heading into 2019, and any time you have that guy on your team, it’s going to give you a leg up on the competition. The interesting guy here if he can stay healthy is Will Fuller V. Among all wide receivers with 75 or more targets since 2017, Fuller’s passer rating when targeted of 127.2 sits behind only Seattle’s Tyler Lockett.

Hopkins is the best WR in football according to PFF, and they also love Will Fuller and Keke Coutee. Fifth looks good to me. I like it.

The questions from here on out is going to be if Coutee and Fuller can stay healthy, and if Bill O’Brien makes throwing the ball downfield a priority for this offense. If these two things happen the offense is going to be a blast to watch, and Houston should have the ability to play shootout with teams like New Orleans and Kansas City. If they don’t? Well things will look a lot like last year.
