What You Need to Know:

  • Mills, a former top recruit, started only 11 games at Stanford.
  • At 6’4, 217 pounds, he showed an ability to make all of the throws. His mobility is close to non-existent, though. He has a history of issues with his left knee.
  • A 2021 Round 3 pick, Mills saw the field with Deshaun Watson sitting out and fill-in Tyrod Taylor suffering an early-season injury.
  • Mills started from Weeks 3-8 but was largely overmatched.
  • A struggling Taylor was benched from Week 14 on. Mills stepped in with a decent 74.6% adjusted completion rate over the final 5 games. That ranked 19th among 31 QBs with 350+ dropbacks.
  • Overall, Mills finished as a QB1 4 times, adding a QB13 finish.
  • Houston passed on adding a rookie QB in the draft. Mills will be the guy for new HC Lovie Smith.
  • Smith praised Mills over the offseason, saying he believes Mills will be an “excellent” QB. “Having a year, he and [offensive coordinator] Pep Hamilton getting on the same page with our offense, and him being in a role from the start, that’s different also. But that’s what you do. You have a chance for him to establish himself as one of our primary leaders each day.”
  • The Texans added John Metchie in the draft. Coming off a December ACL tear, he’s unlikely to be an early-season factor.
  • Brandin Cooks returns following his 6th 1,000-yard season over the past 7 years. Nico Collins brings some sneaky breakout appeal as a 2nd-year Round 3 pick.
  • The TE spot doesn’t have any established presence, but 2nd-year man Brevin Jordan brings a pass-first skill set and ended 2021 strong.
  • Houston’s O-line ranked just 23rd in PFF’s pass-blocking grade last year.
  • A now-healthy Laremy Tunsil and a couple of new arrivals — including Round 1 OG Kenyon Green — signals likely improvement.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

A Round 3 rookie, Mills was thrown into the fire early on. He flopped — predictably — on an offense that didn’t provide much support.

Given another chance late in the season, though, Mills flashed starter-quality ability.

But that was as a passer. Mills posted only 44 rushing yards across 13 total appearances.

That lack of rushing upside — and a still largely unproven supporting cast — keeps the young passer buried in the ranks.

Tyrod Taylor, QB NYG

11:50am EST 12/6/21

Tyrod Taylor injures left wrist

Texans QB Tyrod Taylor might have torn ligaments in his left wrist, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. HC David Culley said Monday that he hadn't decided who would start at QB in Week 14, but this injury certainly wouldn't help a veteran who played poorly in Sunday's loss and got pulled in the 2nd half.

Texans HC David Culley said after Sunday's loss to the Colts that QB Tyrod Taylor hyperextended his left wrist. Taylor was yanked in the 3rd quarter and never announced with an injury. We'll see if he's available for Week 14 -- and whether Houston goes back to Taylor or with rookie QB Davis Mills. Either way, it's a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups.

The Texans have officially activated QB Tyrod Taylor from IR, so he's ready to start Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Taylor has been out with a hamstring injury since leaving the Week 2 loss to Cleveland.

The Texans placed QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) on IR. He'll miss at least the next 3 games -- although the Houston Chronicle reported yesterday that Taylor could miss 4. We're about to get an extended look at 3rd-round rookie QB Davis Mills.

Texans QB Tyrod Taylor "could miss 4 weeks" with his hamstring injury, according to the Houston Chronicle. It's the 1st timetable we've seen. It's an unfortunate break for Taylor, who was playing really good ball before going down. QB Davis Mills didn't look ready in relief this past Sunday, completing just 8 of 18 passes for 102 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT. Now he has a short week to prepare for his 1st start against the Panthers on Thursday night.
