The Texans are optimistic for their 2018 season with the healthy return of their starters and experts seem to agree.
ESPN.com predicted the Top 100 players of 2018 with four Texans making the list: DeAndre Hopkins (No. 24), Jadeveon Clowney (No. 33), J.J. Watt (No. 41) and Deshaun Watson (No. 89).
A panel of 100 ESPN NFL experts rated players based on how good they would be in 2018, using a scale of 1-100. Per ESPN.com:
"We asked them to not emphasize past performance or positional value- only greatness this season. We then averaged their ratings to create the top 100."
Rounding out the top three of the list were Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (No. 1), New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (No. 2) and L.A. Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald (No. 3).
