T.J. Yates expected to start for Texans in Week 15

Houston Texans quarterback T.J. Yates is expected to start Week 15 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, head coach Bill O'Brien said.

What It Means:

Yates stepped in and went 14-of-26 for 175 passing yards and 2 touchdowns on Sunday after Tom Savage went down with a concussion during the Texans' 26-16 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. It's more of a lateral move than a downgrade for DeAndre Hopkins and the rest of Houston's offense.

Yates earned 18.1 FanDuel points in Week 14.
