The Houston Texans were eighth against fantasy receivers last year, but Garcon is targeted enough that he should maintain WR2 value.

Against Houston's ferocious front, Garcon should be the favored target. But neither he nor Jackson are overwhelmingly impressive options with Griffin struggling to get comfortable in the pocket.
