A new season starts for the Texans this weekend as they host the Oakland Raiders at NRG Stadium in the wild card round of the NFL playoffs.
From a fantasy perspective, let's take a look at how the Texans may fare heading into Saturday's game, where Houston will look to make plays against the Oakland defense.
Who might make some noise against the Raiders, while at the same time amping up your FanDuel lineup?
TE C.J. Fiedorowicz
Fantasy football fanatics are well aware that over the last three seasons, the Raiders defense has had issues defending tight ends. Fiedorowicz has seen seven targets in each of his last four games, a number that gives him a great opportunity to produce on Saturday.
FanDuel Salary - $5,300
K Nick Novak
Speaking of low-priced FanDuel options, Novak has lots of value. At $4,500, he's the most affordable of the kickers in action, but he averages the third most FanDuel points at the position, more than the likes of Stephen Hauschka, Mason Crosby, and Chris Boswell. If you're looking to save a few FanDuel bucks, this is the place to do it.
FanDuel Salary - $4,500
QB Brock Osweiler
The Texans offseason acquisition returns under center, just in time to enjoy a favorable matchup against a Raiders defense ranked 23rd in the NFL in FanDuel points allowed to opposing quarterbacks. It's worth noting that Osweiler is the lowest-priced starting QB FanDuel option in the wild card round, so his production could help create a strong lineup.
