Shop for Houston Texans gear at has Schaub on the List of Overvalued QB’s


Fantasy Football site has come out with their list of “Overvalued Fantasy Players” for the 2007 season.  New Texans signal caller Matt Schaub is the #2 QB on their list of Overvalued Players.  Below are the comments on Schaub:    

Matt Schaub, Houston Texans

Schaub is an interesting case. He has spent his first three years as a rarely used backup to one of the league’s biggest stars, yet he has created the most offseason noise of any second-string quarterback since the Seattle Seahawks’ Matt Hasselbeck. In fact, the Seahawks didn’t have to give up as much as the Texans did (two second-rounders and a swap of first-rounders) to get Hasselbeck. While he enters the Texans’ lineup amid rave reviews and high expectations, he also enters a situation in which former No. 1 overall pick David Carr failed miserably. Schaub will be playing behind a line that has set numerous records for sacks allowed during a season. Even former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino would have had trouble putting up good statistics if he was being chased and hammered as often as the Texans’ quarterbacks have been in recent years. Additionally, this will be Schaub’s first year as the No. 1 quarterback and it is in a new offense. It’s not like he was being groomed on the same team over the course of a few years and then, after completely learning the offense, given the starting nod. He will be learning a lot on the fly and will likely make his share of rookie mistakes. While he surely will show signs of the quarterback the Texans objectively traded for, he cannot be expected to enter and immediately perform at a topflight level. Fantasy owners need to weary of him as his mistakes will be costly to their teams; he will probably have a few throw-away games that will make owners who are too invested in him react like stock-traders on Black Friday.
