Davis Mills continues to get vote of confidence from Texans HC

New Texans HC Lovie Smith spoke highly of 2nd year QB Davis Mills on Monday, stating that he’s a “believer in him and what he’s going to do”.

Fantasy Impact

Mills, who was drafted with the 67th pick by the Texans in the 2021 NFL draft, appears to be in line to be the Texans unquestioned starting QB in 2022. Mills started 11 games for Houston as a rookie and experienced his share of growing pains, but he finished strong down the stretch. Over the last five games of the season, Mills completed 68.4% of his passes for 251.6 yards per game while throwing for 9 touchdowns and just 2 interceptions. In terms of fantasy performance, those numbers were good enough to rank as the QB16 over that 5 week period. Mills, a former 5-Star recruit and the top ranked high school QB from the class of 2017, has the upside of a QB2 finish if he is able to take a step forward in 2022. Mills can be viewed as a late round sleeper in Superflex and Dynasty leagues, but he should not be rostered in standard redraft leagues.

Davis Mills throws two TDs in Week 16 win

Houston Texans' QB Davis Mills completed 21-of-27 yards for two touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Chargers. He was also sacked once for a loss of six yards and rushed once for a loss of one yard.

Fantasy Impact

Mills has now thrown two touchdowns in back-to-back weeks. However, he's not likely the long-term answer in Houston, so he's just using these reps to showcase his talent. If you can move him in a SuperFlex dynasty league, this offseason would be the time to do it.

Davis Mills throws two TDs in Week 15 win

Houston Texans' QB Davis Mills completed 19-of-30 pass attempts for 209 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. He was also sacked once for a loss of three yards in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Mills struggled again Sunday and doesn't seem to be the long-term answer. The Texans will either likely draft their quarterback of the future or bring one in via the anticipated Deshaun Watson trade. Either way, if you can move him in SuperFlex dynasty leagues, this offseason would be the time to do it.

Davis Mills throws touchdown in Week 14 loss

Houston Texans' QB Davis Mills completed 33-of-49 pass attempts for 331 yards and a touchdown, while rushing twice for eight yards and being sacked twice for a loss of 14 yards in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

If Mills continues to play well these next four games, the Texans will likely target a pass-rusher with their presumed top-three pick in April's draft while letting Mills showcase his talents for one more season. However, if Mills struggles then the Texans will either have to draft their quarterback of the future or bring one in via the anticipated Deshaun Watson trade. While Mills has played well at times in 2021, he will likely have to do more for the team to pass on the likes of Kenny Pickett or Matt Corral.

Davis Mills playing for starting job in 2022

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Texans QB Davis Mills' rest of season performance will help determine the fate of the team's 2022 starting quarterback as well as their direction in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

It really is simple. If Mills plays well for the rest of the year -- five games -- the Texans will likely target a pass-rusher -- Michigan's Aiden Hutchinson or Oregon's Kayvon Thibodeaux -- with their presumed top-three pick in April's draft. If Mills falters, then the Texans will either have to draft a quarterback of the future or bring one in via the anticipated Deshaun Watson trade. While Mills has played well enough to out-seat perennial journeyman QB Tyrod Taylor in 2021, he will have to really impress to take a stranglehold on the starting spot for 2022. Or not, actually, because we are talking about the Texans here. Mediocrity just might be enough.
