    Updating a previous report, Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (concussion) remains on the active roster as of Tuesday, Dec. 19, and has not been placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

    Huddle Up: It sounds as though Savage won't play again this year, but the team has yet to officially shut him down for the season. Still, even if he got the call he'd be best avoided for fantasy purposes.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 7:17am ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (concussion) is still going through the concussion protocol and likely will not play again this season, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: T.J. Yates probably will start the last three games and will have some solid weapons to work with in the passing game but should be avoided in all leagues.

  • Posted: 12/15/2017 1:14pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 15, and has been ruled out for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: T.J. Yates will be the starting quarterback for the Texans against the Jacksonville Jaguars this week but should be avoided in all leagues.

  • Posted: 12/14/2017 3:12pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Savage is not expected to play this week, so T.J. Yates probably will be the starting quarterback against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Owners in all leagues should avoid the Texans quarterback situation.

  • Posted: 12/13/2017 4:02pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Savage is expected to be sidelined again in Week 15, so T.J. Yates is likely be under center against the stout defense of the Jaguars.

  • Posted: 12/11/2017 7:35am ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (concussion) is unlikely to start in Week 15, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: T.J. Yates is not worth the start in fantasy against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 12:20pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (concussion) suffered a concussion in Week 14 and will not return to the game.

    Huddle Up: T.J. Yates would take over as the starting quarterback if Savage misses any games but should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 11:32am ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (undisclosed) was taken to the locker room after suffering an undisclosed injury in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see the severity of Savage's injury. Owners probably should avoid whoever the Texans quarterback is in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 6:13pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage completed 31 of his 49 pass attempts for 365 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 13 game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: The good news is that Savage only committed one turnover, but the results in the win-loss column were the same. Despite the 300-yard game he isn't worthy of fantasy consideration outside of two-quarterback formats.

  • Posted: 11/28/2017 10:08pm ET

    Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said QB Tom Savage needs to stop turning the ball over or the team will 'have to go in a different direction.' Savage has 10 turnovers in four games since taking over for injured QB Deshaun Watson (knee).

    Huddle Up: If O'Brien really benched Savage it would mean the return of T.J. Yates, who last played in 2015, and that seems a long shot since the former at least theoretically holds some potential. It's an easier decision for fantasy owners who should keep far away from both of them.

  • Posted: 11/28/2017 12:08pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage will continue to be the starter as head coach Bill O'Brien said he is not considering a quarterback change.

    Huddle Up: Savage has struggled mightily since taking over for Deshaun Watson four weeks ago. He has thrown five interceptions in his last three games and is averaging just 230.5 yards per game over the last four weeks. Continue to avoid him like the plague.

  • Posted: 11/27/2017 8:39pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage went 22-for-37 for 252 yards and two interceptions against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Savage has thrown for at least 200 yards in each of the last four games but also has thrown five interceptions in the last three games. He should be avoided in all fantasy leagues moving forward.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 6:08pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage completed 22 of his 32 pass attempts for 230 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 11 win against the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: Savage did an OK job of limiting his mistakes against a good Arizona defense, and he was sacked just once although he did lose a fumble in addition to his interception. Despite the decent numbers he remains more of a QB2 heading into Week 12 against the Ravens on Monday Night Football.

  • Posted: 11/17/2017 2:04pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (shoulder) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 17, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 11 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: Savage will be facing a surprisingly porous Cardinals pass defense, ranking 23rd in the NFL with 245.1 yards per game and 16 touchdowns. However, they have a pretty strong pass rush, sacking the QB 22 times through nine games, and Savage is without Will Fuller (ribs). Despite the favorable matchup his fantasy ceiling remains rather limited.

  • Posted: 11/16/2017 2:01pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Savage hasn't been eye-gougingly terrible since taking over for Deshaun Watson, but he's been close to that. He limits the ceiling of DeAndre Hopkins and the rest of the offense, but guys like Hopkins and Lamar Miller are still automatic starts. Savage, on the other hand, cannot be trusted as a starter no matter who he's playing.

  • Posted: 11/15/2017 3:11pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Savage has thrown for 440 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions the last two weeks and will continue to be the starting quarterback for the foreseeable future. He will be facing a solid Arizona Cardinals defense and should be avoided in all leagues.

  • Posted: 11/13/2017 9:42am ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage will start in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: Savage has no business in your fantasy lineups outside of a fringe play in two-QB leagues.

  • Posted: 11/10/2017 9:35pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage had a full week to practice with the first-team offense ahead of the Week 10 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams, and head coach Bill O'Brien said it is a 'big deal' for Savage to have that practice time under his belt.

    Huddle Up: The extra practice time doesn't change the fact that Savage his zero fantasy appeal in Week 10.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 3:20pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage completed just 19 of his 44 pass attempts for 219 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 9 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Savage struggled mightily and he also lost a fumble on the final play of regulation when the team still had a chance to win the game. He is only worth consideration as a QB2 in deeper fantasy leagues, as he still has dynamic playmakers in Will Fuller and DeAndre Hopkins.

  • Posted: 11/2/2017 2:55pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage will be the starting quarterback against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 9 because of QB Deshaun Watson's (knee) injury.

    Huddle Up: Savage was replaced by Watson in Week 1 but likely will be the starter for the rest of the season. He does not have much fantasy value and probably will hurt the value of DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller.
