Tyrod Taylor named Texans Week 9 starter versus Dolphins

Houston Texans quarterback Tyrod Taylor will start Week 9 against the Miami Dolphins, head coach David Culley announced.

What It Means:

Taylor will replace Davis Mills under center as he returns to game action for the first time since injuring his hamstring in Week 2. The switch should be a significant upgrade for Brandin Cooks and the entire offense. Taylor completed 21-of-33 passes for 291 yards and 2 touchdowns, and added 40 rushing yards, in the opener.

Taylor is averaging 0.55 Passing Net Expected Points per dropback while Mills is averaging negative-0.05. The Dolphins are ranked 27th in Adjusted Passing NEP allowed per play this season, providing a plus matchup for Taylor in his first game back. Taylor is the QB15 in numberFire's Week 9 fantasy rankings.
