Team News
Romeo Crennel Out As Houston's D Coordinator

Houston Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel has been fired, and defensive line coach Anthony Weaver has been promoted in his place, according to league sources. Houston's defense was a liability for most of the year, especially their leaky secondary. The Texans allowed 51 points and seven straight touchdown drives to the Chiefs in the Divisional Round loss. During the 2019 season, Houston's defense allowed 388.3 yards per game (fifth worst), 267.3 passing yards per game (fourth worst), 121.1 rushing yards a game and 24.1 points per game. Getting J.J. Watt back healthy for a full season will be a start to the Texans rebounding on defense under Weaver.

Deshaun Watson Throws Two Touchdowns In Playoff Loss

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson threw for 388 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's playoff loss to the Chiefs. He was 31-for-52 throwing the ball and also added 37 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown. Watson had a strong 2019 campaign, though there were some times when he struggled with his consistency. He'll look to build off this season in 2020 and should wind up with an ADP of a top two or three quarterback.

Duke Johnson Quiet Against Chiefs

Houston Texans running back Duke Johnson had one carry for 11 yards and added five catches for 23 yards in Sunday's playoff loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Johnson's usage down the stretch in Houston was uneven, but he's under contract next season and could see an increase in usage if the team moves on from free agent Carlos Hyde. We'll have to monitor the Texans backfield situation closely as the draft and free agency arrive, but for now, Johnson seems like a risky fantasy option moving forward in head coach Bill O'Brien's offense.

Carlos Hyde Not Huge Factor In Loss

Houston Texans running back Carlos Hyde had his first 1000-yard season this season, but his year ended quietly in Sunday's playoff loss to the Chiefs. Hyde had 13 carries for 44 yards and caught three passes for 18 yards as the Texans fell 51-31. Hyde isn't under contract next year, so Houston could easily move on and look for a higher-upside option to lead their backfield. Look for them to draft a running back regardless of whether or not they re-sign Hyde.

DeAndre Hopkins Plays Well In Loss To Chiefs

Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins caught nine passes for 118 yards in Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He led the team with 14 targets. 2019 wasn't exactly the best year of Hopkins' career, but he's still positioned to be one of the first wide receivers taken in fantasy drafts when the 2020 season rolls around, and Sunday was a reminder of why Hopkins will deserve to be drafted that highly.
