Houston Texans are expected to continue with their troubles from last season and things are expected to get worse. The Texans will need to adjust with their new head coach and Deshaun Watson is still questionable. Watson has not practiced with the Texans due to his legal issues. Tyrod Taylor is expected to be the other player for Houston while Jeff Driskel and Davis Mills are expected to take the quarterback spot for now. From the receiving end, Anthony Miller will take his place while Shaq Lawson continues from the defense.
Players to watch: Deshaun Watson QB (GP 16, CMP 382, ATT 544, CMP% 70.2, YDS 4823, AVG 8.9, YDS/G 329.2, LNG 77, TD 33, INT 7, SACK 49, SYL 293, RTG 112.4), David Johnson RB (GP 12, ATT 147, YDS 691, AVG 4.7, LNG 48, BIG 4, TD 6, YDS/G 57.6, FUM 0, LST 0, FD 38), Brandin Cooks WR (GP 15, REC 81, TGTS 119, YDS 1150, AVG 14.2, TD 6, LNG 57, BIG 20, YDS/G 76.7, FUM 0, LST 0, YAC 348, FD 5).
Green Bay Packers
Moving onto the Packers, they had one of the most memorable seasons last year after clinching the NFC North Division play. The Packers were strong enough to win 13 of their 16 overall games on the season. Green Bay will have Aaron Rodgers on their team but he might not play much in the preseason. Kurt Benkert and Jordan Love are expected to play an important role. From the defensive end, Jaire Alexander will take on the cornerback spot while Eric Stokes might be the addition to their squad.
Players to watch: Aaron Rodgers QB (GP 16, CMP 372, ATT 526, CMP% 70.7, YDS 4299, AVG 8.2, YDS/G 277.6, LNG 78, TD 48, INT 5, SACK 20, SYL 182, RTG 121.5), Aaron Jones RB (GP 14, ATT 201, YDS 1104, AVG 5.5, LNG 77, BIG 6, TD 9, YDS/G 78.9, FUM 1, LST 0, FD 52), Davante Adams WR (GP 14, REC 115, TGTS 149, YDS 1374, AVG 11.9, TD 18, LNG 56, BIG 18, YDS/G 98.1, FUM 1, LST 1, YAC 592, FD 73).
