2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
So, it would seem the whole Deshaun Watson debacle would be a boon for Tyrod Taylor, the former Ravens, Bills, Browns, and Chargers QB who was signed to a Texans contract this Spring, indicating the team saw him as something more than a backup. Given Watson's current issues, it would seem they saw it correctly.

However, everyone I talk to points to the Texans roster and expects this to be an epically bad season in Houston. That means even if Taylor exceeds his modest career stats, at some point the Texans will probably reach the "let's see what the young kid's got" juncture of the season and take a test drive with 3rd-round pick and former Stanford QB Davis Mills, sending Taylor and his dual threat abilities to the bench.

Taylor has never averaged more than 300 passing yards per game, never averaged more than 8.0 yards per attempt, and never thrown more than 20 TD's in a season. But he is athletic and has the toolbox of skills to serve as a spot starter, and the best seasons of his career came in Buffalo, where current Texans HC David Culley was his QB coach. If your starting QB has an early bye, and the matchup is right, Taylor might be worth a pickup. But after Week 8 or so, he'll probably have zero value.

Texans still preparing for season without Deshaun Watson
Tyrod Tylor probably the starting QB with Davis Mills struggling
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 31, 4:30 am

Houston Texans
Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) via Twitter: "Texans are prepared to have Deshaun Watson on the 53-man roster and inactive every week, according to multiple league sources. Watson, who has issued a standing trade request with no deal imminent, would be paid his $10.54 million salary." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It looks like the Texans may be in tank mode especially early this season, as they are ready to play this season without their embattled star QB. Rookie Davis Mills has been bad so far, and it appears as though Tyrod Taylor is the guy they'll go with if Mills doesn't step it up and Watson is deemed a "healthy scratch" every week (and isn't cleared to play -- which he probably won't be anytime soon).


Deshaun Watson's 2021 season remains in limbo
Investigations ongoing
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Jul 12, 11:15 am

Houston Texans
A Houston PD spokesman told Pro Football Network Monday that their investigation into Deshaun Watson is ongoing. The NFL is conducting its own inquiry; ESPN reported recently that Watson is willing to cooperate with the league’s efforts. Even if Watson is never charged, the NFL could mete out its own punishment, including a suspension. Another option is the league placing him on paid leave while the criminal investigation plays out. So, although Watson remains on the Texans’ active roster, that’s subject to (and likely will) change. (ProFootballNetwork)

FFToday's Take: Adam Beasley gives a nice recap/update of Watson's situation which remains in limbo just a couple weeks from the beginning of training camp. Watson skipped off-season workouts and the team has Tyrod Taylor ready to start if Watson isn't available. At this point, it seems like only a settlement between Watson and his accusers and and end to the police investigation are the events needed to allow Watson to have some kind of opportunity to play this season.
