With a big lead for most of the game, the Texans will take the foot off the pedal, but Schaub will still give his owners a nice performance.
Easily the most polarizing player in the first round, Foster will make those who passed on him look foolish with a huge game against the Chargers.
Tate is the most essential handcuff in the league this year, but he can't be started in fantasy leagues as long as Foster is healthy.
For some reason, a large portion of the fantasy community has made a habit of avoiding Johnson. They'll pay for it again this season.
Hopkins is a prime lottery ticket this season. You won't want to start him this week, but he will come in handy down the road.
Daniels isn't going to be the league's top tight end this year. He just as safely won't be outside the top seven. Start him with confidence every week.
Bullock will get squeezed by an efficient offensive performace by the Texans this week, but he could end up as a weekly starter as part of this offense.
Houston has one of the best defenses in the league and a great matchup against the Chargers. They'll be the top performing defense this week.
Remember when Rivers was considered one of the best fantasy quarterbacks in the league? Times have changed. He's barely worthy of being a backup.
Despite all the evidence to the contrary, I think Mathews can be an RB3 this season. He had a strong preseason, and is clearly the best player on this offense.
The Chargers offense clearly lost a lot of its explosiveness when Darren Sproles left town. Woodhead isn't nearly the athlete Sproles is, but he can play in that same capacity with less electricity.
Floyd dodged a bullet this preseason, and is actually a solid backup receiver who should start when bye weeks begin. He'll score the Chargers' lone touchdown this week.
Like teammate Malcom Floyd, Brown is worth having around as a backup. You don't want him in your lineup this week.
Gates held on to his fantasy value last year, but he's clearly getting to the end of the line. I stayed away from him all draft season, and I expect him to be outside the top 12 at the position.
I don't have near enough faith in the San Diego offense to recommend Novak as a player you should consider this season.
Terrible defense, terrible matchup. Do not even think about starting the Chargers.
