What to expect against the spread (ATS)?

I don’t think their schedule is that tough this season and, I think they will be favored in a lot of games. I’ll say they go 8-8 against the spread this season.

Things to watch for:

The Deshaun Watson show. He will be back from his injury and it will be fun to watch him again. He was 3-4 last season before he got hurt but he very well could have been 6-1. He led the Texans in some close games against some tough opponents. It will be fun to see what he has for us this year.


Fantasy Outlook:

QB:

Deshaun Watson - Top 5 - I really do think this guy will be a top 5 QB this season based on what he did last year before he got hurt. Of course, there’s always caution when dealing with a guy coming off of a knee injury but I’m telling you, he’s worth it. Draft him early or you will regret it.

WR:

Deandre Hopkins - #1 - He is my number one wide receiver this year and for good reason. You can double or even triple team him and he still finds a way to make a spectacular play. He is going to be the #1 receiver to go in a lot of drafts and it’s not because Antonio is on the Madden cover, it’s because he is going to have better numbers than him this year.

Will Fuller - Top 50 - Here’s a guy that you can get in to the mid maybe even late rounds that I think is worth picking up.

RB:

Lamar Miller - ehhhhhhhhhh - I remember when I thought this guy was all world back when he first came into the league with the Dolphins. I won’t rave about him anymore but he’s a safe RB2 with potential to go off every now and then.

Up next:

Indianapolis Colts
