NFL: Houston Texans at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

After the highly anticipated J.J. Watt and DeAndre Hopkins revenge game, your Houston Texans were decimated after a relatively strong defensive first quarter. As such, the fantasy numbers were certainly down, but our top performing player wasn’t the usual suspect.

Week Seven: (Texans vs. Cardinals)

QB: Davis Mills - 23/32, 135 yards, fumble lost = 3.4 points

RB: David Johnson - 7 carries, 25 yards rushing, 5 reception, 27 yards receiving = 10.2 points

RB: Mark Ingram II - 6 carries, 9 yards rushing, 3 catches, 18 yards receiving = 5.7 points

RB: Philip Lindsay - 2 carries, 8 yards rushing = 0.8 points

WR: Brandin Cooks - 5 receptions, 21 yards = 7.1 points

WR: Nico Collins - 2 receptions, 28 yards = 4.8 points

WR: Danny Amendola - 3 receptions, 17 yards = 4.7 points

TE: Jordan Akins - 4 receptions, 41 yards = 8.1 points

TE: Pharaoh Brown - 2 receptions, 8 yards = 2.8 points

K: Ka’imi Fairbairn - 1/1FG, 53 yard = 5 points

DEF: 4 sack, 1 INT, safety, 31 points allowed = 7 points

Davis Mills turned into a pumpkin again as the offense floundered at the feet of the Culley Crew. Surprisingly, Brandin Cooks didn’t lead the pack in offense this week! That honor (if you can call it that) goes to the crown jewel of the Hopkins trade, David Johnson. How poetic.

Houston’s defense did an admirable job for the first 15 minutes of the game by putting up a safety and pitching a shutout. However, the dam eventually broke, and 31 points got put up. A fistful of sacks salvaged some of the defense’s fantasy value, so things could have been worse.

Ka’imi had a 50/50 chance at his 53 yard field goal and nailed it. Still, with the offense struggling as they are, I would refrain from using him.

With Tyrod Taylor supposedly close to a comeback, he may end up being a spark plug to getting this team looking how they did through the first two games of this season. If so, we could see some fantasy gains!
