Thursday night fantasy football preview: Texans at Patriots

It’s Thursday night and that means the NFL week has started. Here’s a quick look at the Texans at Patriots matchup.

Will Fuller has had at least 100 yards receiving in his first two games. If he can pull that off on Thursday night he’d be the first rookie in NFL history to have at least 100 yards receiving in his first three games. Fuller has earned his way into your starting lineup but I would consider him a low-end flex player for the game against the Patriots.

Of course you’ll start DeAndre Hopkins, and Lamar Miller is getting too many touches to sit. Brock Osweiler is a tougher call for me this week. I don’t hate the play, but I would like a better option.

Bill Belichick is a football genius, but can he pull off a win with a rookie quarterback against a stout defense?

You won’t start Jacoby Brissett, but it looks like Rob Gronkowski is finally going to play so that could help things for the Patriots. Even if Gronk isn’t 100% healthy you’ll want to start him.

LeGarrette Blount is another player you’ll want to start as the Patriots have leaned on him during their quarterback troubles.
