Case Keenum still has a lot to prove if he wants to earn the title of Houston’s prodigal son. If the college ranks account for anything, Keenum should consider himself halfway there. During his senior season at the University of Houston, Keenum threw for a gawdy 5,631 yards along with 48 TDs and only 5 picks. After signing with the Texans as an undrafted free agent, the erratic play of Matt Schaub has landed Keenum in the driver’s seat of the Texans offense. Keenum has impressed in his first three starts, passing to the tune of 822 yards and 7 TDs. But what is even more impressive is that he has yet to throw an interception, a maneuver that plagued the Texans offense with Matt Schaub at the helm.
Despite being undrafted, Keenum has already proven the NFL isn’t too big of a stage. There’s absolutely no reason I would expect the Texans to pull the plug on Keenum moving forward. As long as he continues to minimize the mistakes, he’s a solid source of production in 12+ team leagues. Even those of you at the top your leagues can afford some insurance heading into the fantasy playoffs, and while Keenum looks more the part of an insurance salesman, he is the insurance going forward at the QB position.
