Jeff Driskel promoted from Texans' practice squad

The Texans promoted QB Jeff Driskel from their practice squad.

Fantasy Impact

Driskel will back up rookie Davis Mills on Thursday Night Football against the Panthers. Starting QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) will miss at least three games after being placed on short-term IR.

Jeff Driskel signs a one-year, $2.5M deal with the Houston Texans

Former free-agent QB Jeff Driskel has signed a one-year, $2.5M deal with the Houston Texans, per Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact

Driskel joins his fourth team in four years with nine starts across 15 games played during his first three seasons in the league. The 28-year old quarterback has completed 202 passes for 2,120 yards and 13 touchdowns during his three-year career and adds experience to a Texans' quarterback room now comprised of rookie Davis Mills, Tyrod Taylor, Ryan Finley, and Deshaun Watson. Allegations surrounding Watson have not yet been fully resolved and it appears Houston is preparing for the worst with a bevy of quarterbacks to compete for the starting job if Watson is unable to play in 2021.

Fantasy Impact

Driskel was ineffective Sunday and took another five sacks before giving way to Brett Rypien in the fourth quarter. He is in line to see a start against the Jets in Thursday night's "someone has to win" bowl.

Jeff Driskel gives Steelers a scare Sunday

Jeff Driskel completed 18-of-34 passes for 256 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the Broncos' 26-21 loss to the Steelers Sunday. He added two rushes for five yards.

Fantasy Impact

Driskel entered the game midway through the first quarter when Drew Lock (shoulder) was forced to the sidelines. He played well under immense pressure from the Steelers and had Denver on the 15-yard line with two minutes to go before being sacked on fourth down. With Lock due to miss 2-6 weeks, Driskel will see plenty of action in the weeks to come. He's nothing more than a potential streamer in 2QB/superflex leagues.
