He's now down to his third-string left tackle, as both Cam Robinson and Josh Wells have found their way to injured reserve. It's allowed him to be sacked eight times over the last two games after being sacked just six times in the first four games. The Texans pass-rush has been solid with J.J. Watt back disrupting the middle of the field, as they've racked-up 12 sacks over their last four games. If a quarterback can get protection, their secondary is exploitable, as they've allowed at least 7.2 yards per attempt to every quarterback not named Blaine Gabbert or Josh Allen. They also stop the run very well (allowed just one rushing touchdown all year), which means it's going to be on Bortles to win this game. This game will be at home, which is where Bortles has played well against the Texans, averaging 281.8 yards and 2.3 touchdowns in the four games.

Houston is 15th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Bortles must play much better than he has the last 2 weeks to be fantasy relevant.
