Davis Mills To Start In Week 15?

Thursday, December 14, 1:19 PM

Signs are pointing to Houston Texans quarterback Davis Mills starting in Week 15 against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday with rookie C.J. Stroud (concussion) still in the league's concussion protocol on Thursday. Mills entered for a concussed Stroud in the Week 14 loss to the New York Jets and went only 1-for-5 for four yards in the fourth quarter. The 25-year-old is now likely to make his first start of 2023 this weekend, and he could be missing top wideout Nico Collins, who injured his calf last Sunday. Mills made 26 starts for the Texans the previous two seasons and completed 63.6% of his 873 attempts for 5,782 yards, 33 touchdowns and 25 interceptions in that span. Mills has experience as a starter but should only be considered a low-end QB2 streamer in superflex leagues against the Titans in Week 15.

Hendon Hooker Moves Into QB2 Role

Monday, May 27, 4:28 PM

Detroit Lions quarterback Hendon Hooker was rumored to be a first-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft in the middle of his stellar final season at Tennessee in 2022. However, he suffered a late-season ACL tear and was ultimately a third-round selection by Detroit. Teddy Bridgewater was Jared Goff's primary backup last season, while Hooker spent most of his debut campaign on the Injured Reserve list. With Bridgewater announcing his retirement this offseason, the 26-year-old is set to move into the QB2 role in 2024. So far at OTAs, the reviews have been promising. "It was fun watching Hendon Hooker sling it in a team setting for the very first time," Colton Pouncy of The Athletic wrote. "Really nice touch on his deep ball. Good velocity. One of his best plays of the day was a deep ball down the right sideline to Daurice Fountain, which drew "oooohs" and "aaahhs" from the team." After Goff signed a four-year extension to remain with the organization, Hooker's narrow path to the starting job closed. However, he can be stashed in deep Superflex or two-QB leagues. If Goff had to miss any time due to injury, the 26-year-old sophomore would have intriguing upside thanks to his rushing ability and pass-catching group headlined by Amon-Ra St. Brown and Sam LaPorta.
