Texans’ rookie QB, C.J. Stroud, who is dealing with shoulder soreness in his throwing arm is expected to be a game-time decision ahead of the Texans’ Week 2 game vs. Indy.
Fantasy Impact: Stroud set an NFL record for most pass attempts in a debut without an INT against Baltimore in Week 1, but shoulder soreness threatens to sideline him from extending the streak in Week 2. If Stroud cannot go, former Texans’ starter Davis Mills will be given the keys to the offense. Regardless of Strouds’ availability, the Texans will likely lean on Dameon Pierce and the run game against a weak Colts defense in Week 2. If you currently have Stroud in your lineup, it is worth stashing a backup and staying alert as to whether he will be suiting up.
