LIST: Fantasy expert Scott Barrett breakdown Texans players for fantasy football
HOUSTON – Fantasy football writer and insider Scott Barrett of Fantasypoints.com talked with me this week on how he believes various Texans players will fare in the 2020 football season from a fantasy standpoint.

Tight Ends“I think it’s (Jordan) Akins over (Darren) Fells, but I don’t think you want any of those guys. You haven’t seen a Texans tight end produce starter numbers in a number of years. Probably just steer clear of those tight ends, unless someone explodes in week 1.”Defense/ Special teams“They’re somewhere in the middle.
