Description: The Raiders have acquired QB Matt Schaub from the Texans for a sixth-round pick in the 2014 draft, according to ESPN's Adam Schafter.
Insight: Schaub immediately becomes Oakland's No. 1 quarterback option with Terrelle Pryor as his main backup. His receivers are nothing special and it's unlikely Schaub will be coveted on fantasy draft day after his lousy 2013 campaign (14 INT, 73.0 QB rating in ten appearances).

Insight: Schaub imploded last season and with the Texans likely to draft a quarterback with the first pick, he shouldn't be in Houston for much longer. Schaub's best season came in 2009 when he led the league with 4,770 passing yards. That was also the year he made his only Pro Bowl appearance.

Description: Texans quarterback Matt Schaub will return to the starting job in Week 16 against Denver.
Insight: Case Keenum has been abysmal over the last few weeks and he suffered a thumb injury in Week 15. Schaub should not be trusted in any fantasy leagues.
 
12/6/2013 9:34:00 AM
Description: Texans quarterback Matt Schaub was good in a relief role going 17-of-29 for 198 yards one TD and one INT.
Insight: Case Keenum's great start seems such a long time ago. He's done little to assure that he will start any more games over the remainder of the season. It wouldn't surprise anyone if coach Gary Kubiak opts for the veteran over the final three games as he tries to save his own job.

Insight: Schaub hurt his ankle in last week's blowout loss to St. Louis. Former University of Houston standout Case Keenum will get the nod at quarterback for the Texans in Week 7.

Insight: The Houston quarterback suffered a leg injury Sunday against St. Louis. T.J. Yates is likely to start if Schaub is unable to play next week versus Kansas City.
 
10/13/2013 3:15:00 PM
Description: Texans QB Matt Schaub left Sunday's game against the Rams with a right leg injury.
Insight: Backup T.J. Yates promptly came in and threw a pick-six. It's been that kind of season for Houston. We should have an update on Schaub's status shortly.
 
10/13/2013 11:09:00 AM
Description: An NFL Network report suggests Houston quarterback Matt Schaub will be on a very short leash Sunday against St. Louis.
Insight: As he should be after throwing pick-sixes the last four weeks. T.J. Yates will be next in line should Schaub have another tough week.

Description: ESPN's Tania Ganguli reports that Matt Schaub will start at quarterback this week against the Rams.
Insight: Schaub has had an horrendous season but head coach Gary Kubiak isn't ready to give up on him yet. If Schaub has another bad week, he could be benched for Week 7's matchup against the undefeated Chiefs.

Insight: Head coach Gary Kubiak backtracked from his earlier stance that Schaub would remain the starter by saying, "I'm evaluating everything to see what gives us the best chance to win." Schaub is tied with Arizona's Carson Palmer for second in the league in interceptions with nine. Backup T.J. Yates could be worth an add if Schaub's struggles continue.
 
10/7/2013 11:40:00 AM
Description: Texans QB Matt Schaub will continue to start, according to coach Gary Kubiak.
Insight: Schaub set a record for futility with a fourth consecutive game throwing an interception for a touchdown. Kubiak's options are limited (T.J. Yates, Casey Keenum) and if the coach can help Schaub regain his confidence, he's still the team's best chance to win and go deep into the playoffs.
 
1/13/2013 9:41:00 PM
Description: Texans QB Matt Schaub threw for 343 yards Sunday against the Patriots.
Insight: Schaub's 25-yard strike to DeVier Posey in the fourth quarter was his first career postseason touchdown. He threw for another one six minutes later to cut New England's lead to just 10 points. Sunday was Schaub's third 300-yard game of the season and his first one since Thanksgiving.
 
1/5/2013 9:16:00 PM
Description: Houston quarterback Matt Schaub completed 29-of-38 passes for 262 yards and an interception Saturday in his first career playoff victory.
Insight: This wasn't Schaub's best effort but certainly the Texans (losers of three out of four to end the regular season) were happy to get the win. Next, Houston will head to Foxborough to take on the AFC East Champion Patriots. New England blew the Texans out when they played in Week 14 (42-14).
 
11/18/2012 6:19:00 PM
Description: Texans QB Matt Schaub registered an amazing 527 yards passing and five touchdowns Sunday against the Jaguars.
Insight: The 527 yards tied Warren Moon for the second-most ever in an NFL game. If Schaub wasn't on the fantasy radar before this game he certainly will be now.
 
Cold10/15/2012 10:36:00 AM
Description: Houston QB Matt Schaub had his worst game of the year Sunday against the Packers.
Insight: The ninth-year quarterback was picked off twice and failed to reach 250 yards passing for the third week in a row. Schaub's QB rating over the past two weeks is a dismal 63.6.
 
9/28/2012 2:49:00 PM
Description: Texans quarterback Matt Schaub is dealing with shoulder problems but was a full participant in Thursday's practice
Insight: Schaub had a huge Week 3 against Denver throwing for 290 yards and four touchdowns. He'll face a Titans team that gave up 400 yards passing last week. He's a must-start.
 
9/9/2012 7:02:00 PM
Description: Adam Schefter of ESPN tweeted Sunday that the Texans and quarterback Matt Schaub have agreed to a four-year, $62 million contract extension.
Insight: Schaub missed half of last season with a foot injury but he looked sharp in his return to the field Sunday versus the Dolphins. The 31-year-old threw for 266 yards and a touchdown on 31 passing attempts. He did not throw an interception.
 
8/18/2012 10:45:00 PM
Description: Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub looked very good in the team's preseason game Saturday against the Bears, completing 11-of-14 for 128 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Schaub is an injury risk but if he plays a full season like he did in 2009 and 2010 he's a near-lock to post top-10 quarterback numbers, even if the Texans are likely to favor the running game.
 
6/9/2012 11:17:00 AM
Description: Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub is expected to be 100-percent when training camp begins this July. Schaub missed the final six games of 2011 and the playoffs after Lisfranc surgery on his right foot last November.
Insight: Great news for Andre Johnson fans as Schaub threw for more than 4,300 yards in each of the two seasons before the injury. It won't hurt running back Arian Foster either, now that the defense will have to respect the Schaub-to-Johnson hookup and can't crowd the line of scrimmage.

Insight: When he and his receivers are healthy, Matt Schaub can be a very good fantasy quarterback. Schaub threw for 4,000-plus yards in both 2009 and 2010, but posted just 2,479 yards this season after a damaged Lisfranc ligament ended his season prematurely. Schaub should be a starting fantasy quarterback again in 2012, though not top-five.
