2019 Fantasy Football Rookie Roundup: Houston Texans

The 2019 NFL Draft is in the rearview mirror, and it’s time for the next part of the NFL calendar. That’s right… massive, rampant speculation! They will go through drills in shorts, and we will endlessly project and prognosticate on their fantasy football futures. There are 78 guys who might have fantasy football relevance after their names were called in Nashville. Our goal with our Fantasy Football Rookie Roundup series is to give you a quick hit on every one of these guys. By the end, you’ll know these guys better than their mothers know them. Because it’s not like their mothers are necessarily good at fantasy football. 

The Houston Texans have one of the more prolific offenses for fantasy football, but they still haven’t quite put it together at tight end. They drafted a guy in Jordan Thomas last season, who was raw and athletic, but still didn’t pop in his rookie season. The Texans hope the guy they took in the third round can help fix that problem. 

Round 3, Pick 86 overall – Kahale Warring, Tight End, San Diego State 

Warring has all the talent and attributes you are looking for in a quality pass-catching tight end. He has soft hands, good body control, and had a high usage rate in college. He knows what he is doing with the football, and does a great job of ensuring he gets it. Unfortunately, there’s the Rookie Tight End Curse to contend with, so his year one ceiling is limited. That issue is compounded by the fact that he is still learning the game, after playing just one year in high school and walking on at San Diego State. Still, he is extremely athletic and looks to have a long, fruitful career ahead of him. 

For now, though, keep digging. There’s nothing to see here in 2019.
