C.J. Stroud delivers despite three INTs

C.J. Stroud Headshot

Texans QB C.J. Stroud tossed three INTs vs. the Cardinals on Sunday. The first and third were bad decisions and misthrown balls; the second probably should have been caught by WR Robert Woods. But Stroud still led the Texans to a win. And he still delivered lots of fantasy points, racking up 336 yards with TDs to TE Dalton Schultz and WR Tank Dell. Stroud completed a sterling 73% of his passes and averaged 9.1 yards per attempt. He's on a ridiculously productive run, averaging 387 yards and 2.7 TDs over his last three games. It's worth noting that all three of those games have come against defenses ranked in the bottom half of the league in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs. Stroud gets two more slightly positive matchups the next two weeks vs. the Jaguars and Broncos that will keep him safely inside QB1 territory. The rookie will face tough tests in Week 14 vs. the Jets and Week 16 vs. the Browns. It'd be wise to at least line up potential alternatives for those two weeks -- although Stroud is playing so well that he won't be a must-bench in those matchups.
