FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 16 ISSUES: TOM SAVAGE BEING NAMES STARTER GOOD NEWS FOR DeANDRE HOPKINS

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien made the obvious call on Monday in naming Tom Savage his starting QB for Week 16.  With the Texans trying to nail down a playoff berth and O'Brien vowing to play the best QB option no matter the salary, he put his money where his mouth was in naming the upstart Savage.  Savage earned the look after coming in relief of a disastrous Brock Osweiler in the second quarter of last Sunday's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars and played pretty well in nailing down the win.  While Savage did not throw or a score, he also did not turn it over unlike Osweiler who threw two more interceptions prior to being yanked.  Over the last two preseasons, Savage has tossed 8 touchdowns and just 1 pick and he instantly showed chemistry with top wideout DeAndre Hopkins.  With Hopkins having been dragged down by Osweiler's struggles, the fact he was targeted so much with Savage under center last Sunday was big.  Those who own stock in Hopkins and are still alive in their leagues can now feel better starting him in the fantasy football championship at the very least.  While Savage has not value yet, he stands a good chance of permanently unseating Osweiler for 2017.
