The Houston Texans added some pieces during the 2022 NFL Draft, and there’s a chance that their rookies could be fantasy relevant sooner rather than later. Before we dive into what impact these rookies could have on the Texans in 2022, let’s look back at last season.

Houston didn’t end up picking until the third round in 2021. They drafted their incumbent quarterback Davis Mills and wide receiver Nico Collins both in the third round. The Texans had enough confidence in Mills that they traded away troubled quarterback Deshaun Watson. Brandin Cooks is their best wide receiver, but look for Collins to take a step forward in his second season.

Fantasy football impact

The Texans provided quarterback Davis Mills with a second-round wideout in John Metchie III. He’s coming off a knee injury from last season but should be good to go come training camp. He’d be someone worth looking into picking up off the waiver wire in fantasy.

Fourth-round pick Dameon Pierce provides added depth to the running back room. He could potentially wiggle his way into the starting lineup with a good training camp.
