Texans: 2009 NFL Regular Season Schedule | Fantasy Football Rankings
The Houston Texans 2009 Regular Season Schedule
This season the Texans are primed to make the playoffs for the first time in franchise history. With a much improved offensive line and a good all around team, Houston should surprise many as they have the playmakers to win this season.
Below are three sections of interest that are worth paying attention to for fantasy owners coming into the season for this team. First we have listed our fantasy players which we believe are worth paying attention to this season.
Next is strength of schedule against the run, pass and points against. Lastly we have a few games selected that will be key in telling how this team will preform for the 2009 season.
vs Run 15th Easiest Schedule
vs Pass 12th Easiest Schedule
vs Points Given Up 15th Hardest Schedule
This should be the year that the Texans receive national attention as they have one of the more explosive offenses in football and are primed for success. Their defense still has some improving to do but for fantasy football all that means it they will be in more shoot outs.
Look for Matt Schaub’s completions down the field to go up as defenses will have to come into this season respecting Steve Slaton and the running game. With this in mind I believe it is very reasonable to think that Andre Johnson will have one of his finest seasons of his career.
Games of Interest
Weeks 1-3: The Texans got off to a bad start a season ago and they will need to change this if they hope to make the post season. In the first three games of the year they will play some good teams.
One good thing they have going for them is that out of these games two of them are at home. In those games they play the Jets (wk 1) and the Jaguars (wk3) but they do go to the Titans week two. If Houston can snag two victory in their first three games it should go a long way towards this team having success all season.
2009 Football Projection
By seasons end I believe the Texans will make it to the playoffs but they probably won’t seal the deal until week 17. Even if this team doesn’t make the playoffs they should be in the hunt all year and should be stronger next year as the defense matures.
