| Ryan Fitzpatrick to start for Houston|
Texans sign Thad Lewis, place Mallett on IR
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 26, 4:52 pm
|HOUSTON -- The Texans placed quarterback Ryan Mallett on injured reserve on Wednesday, meaning Ryan Fitzpatrick will start on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.
Fitzpatrick started the first nine games, with a 4-5 record, before being benched during the bye week in favor of Mallett, who went 1-1 as the starter. Also on Wednesday, the Texans signed free-agent quarterback Thad Lewis, who was released by the Bills in training camp
FFToday's Take: Despite keeping things conservative through the air, Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown at least one touchdown pass in eight of his nine starts this season. He has enough weapons to provide fantasy owners with QB2 production but doesn't bring much upside to the table. To add depth to the roster in the wake of Mallett's injury the team signed Thad Lewis, while rookie Tom Savage presumably takes over the backup role behind Fitzpatrick.

FFToday's Take: Mallett reportedly played through the injury on Sunday. We haven't received an official word on who the Texans will start at quarterback in Week 13 against Tennessee but it's likely to be Ryan Fitzpatrick. Rookie Tom Savage is also on the roster

Ryan Fitzpatrick benched

|Ryan Mallett is the Texans’ new starting quarterback.
Coach Bill O’Brien named Mallett the starter Wednesday, after debating during recent days whether to make a change. The first-year coach acknowledged the decision to bench veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick was "very difficult." (Houston Chronicle)|
FFToday's Take: Fitzpatrick will be the backup in Week 11 with Tom Savage operating as the No. 3 quarterback. Fitzpatrick has completed 62 percent of his passes for 1960 yards, 11 TDs and 8 INTs in nine games. The Texans are 4-5 and looking for a spark. For now, consider Mallett a QB2 until he shows consistency with Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins.

Patriots receive conditional seventh-round pick in 2016

FFToday's Take: The Texans released quarterback Case Keenum after the acquisition. Mallet was taken in the third-round of the 2011 draft by the Patriots but has thrown less than 10 passes in the regular season. Malett and Tom Savage will compete for the backup quarterback job behind Ryan Fitzpatrick.
