No. 3 – Texans (Week 11)
The Texans are under speculation for taking a step back after trading DeAndre Hopkins to the Cardinals — but the team has actually improved more than you would think.
In exchange for Hopkins, the Texans received running back David Johnson, who seemingly fits the Texans offensive system well. In addition to obtaining Johnson, the Texans also acquired speedster wide receiver Brandin Cooks.
Deshaun Watson has a few weapons to spread the ball around with this season in Will Fuller, Cooks, Johnson, and even tight end Darren Fells — who scored seven touchdowns last year. He also has a rookie wideout in Isaiah Coulter out of Rhode Island who can add depth and help stretch the field deep.
Watson presents a threat in his own unique way, as he’s able to stay in the pocket or tuck the ball in and run away with it. Entering his fourth year now, Watson is poised to lead the Texans to success.
As for the defense, the Texans typically always have a strong front line led by JJ Watt that usually calls for a great matchup.
Again, by the time Week 11 rolls around in November, this will be a great test for the Patriots.
