A magnificent rookie season for C.J. Stroud has fans and fantasy managers clamoring for more in 2024, and the trade that brought WR Stefon Diggs to the Texans gives the young quarterback one of the best sets of pass catchers in the league. The second overall pick of the 2023 NFL Draft behind Bryce Young, Stroud was a revelation in his first NFL season, throwing for 4,108 yards and 23 touchdowns in 15 games. Stroud ranked third in the league in passing yardage per game (273.9) among QBs with at least six starts, third in yards per attempt (8.2), sixth in passer rating (101.8) and first in interception percentage (1.0%). The future looks bright for Stroud, who, in addition to Diggs, can also leverage the talents of exciting young WRs Nico Collins and Tank Dell. Stroud doesn't provide a great deal of rushing value, with only 167 rushing yards and three TD runs, but his proficiency as a passer will make him a coveted fantasy asset in 2024 drafts.

C.J. Stroud wins 2023 Offensive Rookie of the Year

C.J. Stroud has won the 2023 Offensive Rookie of the Year. This is the second year in a row that a Buckeye has won the award after his former teammate, Garrett Wilson, won the award last season.

Fantasy Impact

Even with several strong candidates to compete with, such as the Rams Puca Nacua, Stroud came home with the prestigious award. He was 8th in the NFL in total passing yards and led the NFL in passing yards per game. His 1.0% interception rate was also the best in the NFL and he led the Texans to a playoff win in what was believed to be a rebuilding year. He has a bright future ahead of him and the Texans have found their franchise quarterback.
