Seems to have coach's confidence

April 11, 2022
Texans coach Lovie Smith said Monday that Mills is the team's quarterback, while offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton used the term "potentially our starting quarterback," Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The 2021 third-round pick won just two of 11 starts last season, but both came in the final five weeks -- a stretch where he completed 68.4 percent of his passes for 7.4 YPA with nine touchdowns and only two interceptions. While he may have done enough to earn his shot as the Week 1 starter, Mills doesn't offer much fantasy upside for single-QB leagues, as he rarely runs (18 carries for 44 yards last year) and is stuck on one of the worst rosters in the NFL. The Texans have had a quiet offseason in terms of veteran additions, mostly settling for discount additions like RB Marlon Mack and WR DaeSean Hamilton. They did sign Brandin Cooks to an extension, locking in Mills' favorite target from last year, and the draft will bring more talent after trades netted Houston extra picks in Rounds 1, 3 and 4. The problem for Mills is that one of those picks could be a QB who threatens his starting spot, be it this summer or later down the line.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Mills was selected in the third round of the 2021 draft and it's no surprise the Texans took a quarterback, as the organization suddenly faces uncertainty at a position that once appeared set for the next decade. The Stanford product's maturation as a pro could take some time due to limited experience. His first two years with the Cardinal were capped due to injuries, and he started just 11 games over the last two seasons. With Deshaun Watson's future with the team cloudy, Tyrod Taylor could well take over as the starter to start the coming campaign, with Mills potentially getting a look by midseason. The Texans need to determine if he's their signal caller of the future, or if they'll go QB hunting in the first round of the 2022 draft.
