FantasyPros
The Texans are 32nd against fantasy backs and Henry dominated the Texans with 212 rushing yards the last time they played. Henry is an elite RB1 on the road this week.Adams had 11 receptions for 142 yards and 3 touchdowns on SNF and he is having a ridiculous season where he is putting up video game numbers on a routine basis. He is an elite QB1 option on the road this week.
