Texans QB Matt Schaub said he feels fine and feels ahead of last year because he's not rehabbing his foot like he did in the 2012 offseason.
With arguably the best RB in the game behind him in Arian Foster, the Texans are a run-first offense. With the addition of rookie DeAndre Hopkins to line up opposite Andre Johnson and Keshawn Martin in the slot, and Owen Daniels, don't be surprised to see the Texans throw it a bit more than they have the past couple of seasons. Hopkins (on paper) gives them another threat in the receiving game that they needed.ANALYST:
Quietly has throw for over 4,000 yards in 3 of the last 4 seasons. Having such a dominant rushing attack limits Schaub's passing numbers. Will be a solid QB2 for fantasy owners as he's been in years past. ANALYST:
Dan Straily will start Tuesday against the Rangers.
Mike Fiers was scheduled to start Tuesday, but he threw five innings in relief Monday after starter Lance McCullers failed to get out of the first inning. Straily has a 3.65 ERA and 3.71 FIP in 98 2/3 innings at Triple-A this season, but considering his struggles at the big league level, the Rangers are an intriguing stack for DFS Tuesday.

Breshad Perriman (knee) missed a fourth straight practice Monday.
The speedy Perriman could be a big time fantasy asset this season. He should easily exceed his ADP and finish higher than quite a few receivers who will be drafted before him. He tends to drop a few passes, but hopefully that will improve during camp. The knee isn't expected to be a glaring issue, so he should be back on the field sometime soon. Analysis: Colby Conway
