Davis Mills, QB (HOU)

Back as starting QB

Head coach Lovie Smith confirmed Wednesday that Mills will start at quarterback for the Texans this Sunday against the Cowboys, Drew Dougherty of the Texans' official site reports.

As a result, Kyle Allen -- who started the Houston's last two games -- will return to a backup role. Per DJ Bien-Aime of ESPN.com, Smith noted that the team expects "two weeks of watching from the sideline to help" Mills, who has recorded 2,144 passing yards and an 11:11 TD:INT through 10 outings this season. In his return to the starting lineup, the 2021 third-round pick represents an option at his position for those in deeper fantasy formats, as well as for managers in need of signal-caller depth while six NFL teams are on bye Week 14.
