C.J. Stroud Looking To Own The Offense More

Houston Texans second-year quarterback C.J. Stroud, who won Offensive Rookie of the Year honors in 2023, said he thinks there are "a ton of things" he can do better in his second year in the NFL, starting with "owning the offense more" than he did a year ago. Stroud also hopes to improve his footwork in Year 2 and focused on his desire for the team to put more "on my plate" in terms of directing the offense. "I want to definitely attack down the field more this year and press guys back, but also take what the defense gives me," Stroud said. "If it's a boring play, stick with the boring stuff and just be efficient with that. Those are all things I can get better at." Fantasy managers shouldn't consider the 22-year-old to be a high-end QB1 just yet, but he's no doubt going to be a popular midrange QB1 target after the phenomenal rookie season he had.

C.J. Stroud Wins Offensive Rookie Of The Year Honors

Houston Texans rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud was named as the 2024 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year on Thursday. The 22-year-old No. 2 overall pick absolutely took the league by storm in his first year in the NFL while also being led by first-time play-caller Bobby Slowik. The former Ohio State star looked like a seasoned veteran and was cool under pressure all year, finishing a 63.9 completion percentage for 4,108 passing yards, 23 touchdowns and only five interceptions in 15 regular season games while also leading the Texans to a wild-card playoff win over the Browns. With some intriguing weapons around him in the backfield and in the passing game, Stroud will firmly be in the QB1 picture in fantasy heading into his sophomore season.

C.J. Stroud Struggles In Divisional Round Loss

Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud struggled on the road in the team's 34-10 Divisional Round loss against the Baltimore Ravens. Stroud was not particularly efficient on Saturday, completing 19-of-33 passes for just 175 yards. The Ravens held the rookie in check, which resulted in him throwing zero touchdowns in a game for the fourth time this season. After a successful rookie campaign, Stroud's season will officially end. However, he has emerged as a top fantasy quarterback option and should be drafted pretty early in Superflex formats next season.

C.J. Stroud Draws Tough Matchup In Divisional Round

Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud was spectacular in his first postseason start. But he might struggle in the Divisional Round against the Baltimore Ravens. Last week, Stroud threw for 274 yards and three touchdowns in a blowout victory over the Cleveland Browns. However, quarterbacks are only averaging 218.6 pass yards and 1.06 pass touchdowns per game against the Ravens' secondary this season. They have also allowed the third-fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks in 2023. Stroud only managed 242 pass yards with zero touchdowns back in Week 1 against this Baltimore defense, making him a risky option in the Divisional Round.

C.J. Stroud Lights Up Browns In Playoff Debut

Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud was unstoppable in the team's 45-14 blowout win in the Wild-Card Round against the Cleveland Browns. Making the first postseason start of his career on Saturday, Stroud showed no playoff jitters as he completed 16-of-21 passes for 274 yards and three touchdowns. The rookie led Houston down the field for three first-half scores, including a 76-yard touchdown to Brevin Jordan early in the second quarter. Stroud will look to carry that momentum in the Divisional Round next week.

C.J. Stroud Draws Tough Matchup In Wild-Card Round

Houston Texans rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud will make his postseason debut against the Cleveland Browns on Saturday. Stroud will enter the playoffs following a spectacular rookie season in which he threw for 4,108 yards, 23 touchdowns, and five interceptions. But he'll draw a tough matchup in the first round of the playoffs. The Browns have given up the fourth-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season, which makes Stroud a risky play in daily fantasy sports (DFS) contests. The Browns have also only allowed two quarterbacks to throw for over 250 pass yards and two touchdowns over the past 10 weeks.

C.J. Stroud Carries Texans Into Playoffs

Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud led a key fourth-quarter drive to secure a playoff berth in the team's 23-19 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Stroud was almost perfect on Saturday, completing 20-of-26 passes for 264 yards and two touchdowns. The rookie started the game on fire after connecting with Nico Collins for a 75-yard touchdown on Houston's first offensive snap. He then led a 12-play, 73-yard drive late in the fourth quarter to secure the victory. Stroud will look to carry that momentum into the playoffs next week.

C.J. Stroud A Must-Start In Week 18

Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud is looking to carry his team to the playoffs in Week 18 against the Indianapolis Colts. Stroud is coming off a modest performance, throwing for just 213 yards and one touchdown in his first game back from a concussion. But a better game could be in store for the 22-year-old rookie. In Week 2, he threw for 384 yards and two touchdowns en route to a 21.5-point fantasy day against this Colts' secondary. With many star quarterbacks sitting out this weekend, Stroud is a strong option in Week 18.

C.J. Stroud Solid In Return From Concussion

Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud returned from his two-game absence against the Tennessee Titans in Week 17, completing 24 of 32 passes for 213 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions. He also took one sack and added four rushing yards. While the rookie didn't have a huge game in this outing, he played turnover-free football while mounting six scoring drives and leading Houston to a divisional win late in the season. Fantasy managers should view him as a low-end QB1 option against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 18.

C.J. Stroud Returning In Week 17

Houston Texans rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud (concussion) was able to get through his second straight full practice session on Friday. The rookie quarterback cleared the league's concussion protocol on Thursday. Fantasy managers should expect Stroud to be out there for the Week 17 matchup against the Tennessee Titans. The Texans still have a chance at the postseason, so the expectation is that they will continue to start Stroud. The Texans are finally getting healthy at wide receiver, so Stroud should be able to hold low-end QB1 value for this weekend.
