Summary

The Texans defense took it's game to a new level last season, ranking seventh overall. The team was especially good against the rush, holding teams to 97.5-rushing yards per game. The pass defense wasn't quite as good, ranking 16th overall but still respectable in the pass-first NFL. The Texans have plenty of young talent on the defensive side of the ball and should continue to get better. J.J. Watt is the leader, though, and had 21.5 sacks last season. He is just coming into his own and will be a dominant player for years to come. And second-year linebacker Whitney Mercilus is another emerging talent that provides another solid pass rusher and run stopper. The big area of concern remains the secondary but the addition of safety Ed Reed, if healthy, could be a big boost for this unit. Reed can be a difference maker but needs to get back to health if he hopes to help the team. Keshawn Martin is expected to remain the top return man for the team. Martin did well in this area last year, providing above-average return yards for the Texans. Fantasy Outlook: The Texans are becoming a solid starter for fantasy teams at defense/special teams. This unit has huge sack potential because of Watt and seems to have a knack for finding the end zone. And if Reed can get healthy and play near his old level, the defense could play even better than last season.
