2017 Season Outlook

All signs point to Savage starting the season as the Texans quarterback, but it's difficult to envision a scenario where he hangs onto the job for the entire year. Still, this is a Texans team that has perennially made the playoffs with a cast of characters at the quarterback position so they aren't going to rush Deshaun Watson into the role until he's ready. Although Savage has been adequate in limited duties over the past couple seasons, he profiles merely as a game manager with little to no fantasy upside. He may be worth a flyer in 2017 given the offensive talent around him, but his ceiling is probably something in the Alex Smith-type range this season, and a backup role beyond that.
