Of the six games the Texans have played, just one quarterback has scored less than 18.1 fantasy points, and it was backup quarterback Kyle Allen when he still completed 24-of-34 passes for 232 yards, just failed to throw a touchdown. It is worth noting they've had a tough slate of quarterbacks this year that's included Drew Brees, Gardner Minshew, Philip Rivers, Matt Ryan, and Patrick Mahomes. Having the bye week to gameplan should help and we watched Andrew Luck in this same offense post 464 yards and four yards at home against the Texans last year. Even on the road, Luck posted 399 yards and two touchdowns. While Brissett clearly isn't Luck, he was the No. 12 fantasy quarterback when he went into his bye week, so he's been usable. The fact that the Texans still defend the run extremely well bodes well for the pass attempts to rack up, as is the reason we've seen every quarterback throw the ball at least 33 times against the Texans, including three games of at least 43 pass attempts. There were two times Brissett threw the ball more than 29 times this year, and in both of those games he posted at least 20 fantasy points. He's in the low-end QB1 streaming conversation this week. He's not a bad option in cash games when you factor in his price, too.
