The Houston Texans will be looking for their second-straight win when they go on the road to play the Cleveland Browns in Week 10. Houston (2-6) defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-25, thanks to the dynamic play of franchise quarterback Deshaun Watson. Watson did it all for the Texans, recording 331 yards of total offense and two touchdowns.

The Browns (5-3) are coming off of a bye week, after losing to the Las Vegas Raiders 16-6 at home. Cleveland is hoping to get back running back Nick Chubb, who has been out with a knee sprain. The Browns will also be getting back starting quarterback Baker Mayfield under center, too. Mayfield was placed on the COVID-19/injured reserved list on Sunday as he had close contact with someone who tested posted. He has since returned to practice.

Fantasy football start/sit advice

Texans

Will Fuller, WR, $6,700

Will Fuller V scored a 77-yard touchdown in Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, extending his touchdown streak to six games. He’ll be looking to make it seven against a below-average Browns’ secondary that is known to give yards and big pass plays. Just like in Week 9, Fuller is a must-start as your WR2 or WR3.

Deshaun Watson, QB, $6,900

If you are starting Fuller, then its only right you start Deshaun Watson. The dynamic dual-threat quarterback has played relatively good this season, despite everything else going wrong around him. In the Texans’ last four games, Watson has exceeded his fantasy football projections by an average of 5.4 points.

Browns

Kareem Hunt, RB, $6,700

If Chubb is good to go, then temper your expectations for Kareem Hunt. However, if he isn’t ready to go or on a pitch count, then make sure you consider Hunt. The former Toledo running back has had three games where he scored at least 15 fantasy points in Chubb’s absence. Unlike Chubb, he gives the Browns’ offense another playmaker that they can get involved in the passing game. This season, the Texans’ defense is giving up 251.7 passing yards per game and 26.2 fantasy points to opposing running backs.

Jarvis Landry, WR, $5,900

With Odell Beckham Jr. done for the season, the Browns need Jarvis Landry to take over and be their No. 1 wide receiver. In Week 7 against the Raiders, Landry saw a season-high 11 targets, but only had four receptions for 52 yards. The veteran wideout has been a fantasy disappointment over the Browns’ last two games. But he’ll be facing a Houston defense, which is allowing 26.8 fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season.
