Texans head coach Bill O'Brien made sweeping changes to his team's offense this offseason, perhaps in an effort to keep owner Bob McNair from making sweeping changes to his coaching staff next offseason.

After getting blasted in the playoffs 30-0, O'Brien and his staff signed quarterback Brock Osweiler and running back Lamar Miller to lucrative free-agent deals. Not only do they replace older and more injury-prone players at their positions (Brian Hoyer and Arian Foster), but they should rejuvenate the offense. It's vital to the Texans, who averaged 21.2 points per game during the season but only beat one playoff team from 2015.

The constant from last year was and still is DeAndre Hopkins. Fantasy owners who invested in him were plenty happy after he put up one of the best seasons even from a Texans receiver, which is saying something since Andre Johnson played there for 12 years. With 10 games of 10-plus Fantasy points (same as Antonio Brown), over 190 targets (just like Brown), 111 receptions (OK, Brown's got him there) and 11 touchdowns (one more than Brown), Hopkins has emerged not only as a legit No. 1 receiver, but one who doesn't need a top-tier quarterback throwing to him. Osweiler should prove to be the best passer he's ever had. Though the prospect of Miller reasserting the run game and a pair of fast rookie receivers threatening the number of targets to go around is real, Fantasy owners are still very excited about taking Hopkins with a middle-to-late first-round pick.

With apologies to everyone who previously drafted Miller, this is going to be the season he breaks through. In Miami, Miller seemingly couldn't get the opportunity to serve as an every-down back. He only had two games with 20-plus carries and 10 games with 20 or more touches. He played there for four years. The Texans made a statement when they signed Miller to a four-year deal with $14 million guaranteed -- he was the guy to replace Arian Foster, who was released. O'Brien's offense is predicated on running the ball well, so expect Miller to get the opportunities he rarely had with the Dolphins. Believe it or not, the lack of touches he had with the Fins -- just 638 carries and 117 catches -- will actually benefit Miller's Fantasy owners this season. The workload, the speed added to the Houston offense, the schedule over the second half of the season and the potential for as many as 1,500 total yards puts Miller among the Top 10 rushers in Fantasy. Don't be shocked to see him get picked just after 15th overall in all drafts, and don't be afraid to be the person who does it.

Some rookie receivers come into the NFL and make an instant impact. Most don't. Fuller and Miller should spend their rookie seasons learning while on the job in an offense that isn't catered to them. Rather, they're the ones who will serve in specific roles to help the offense achieve its goals. Fuller's deep speed will force defenses to keep their safeties off of the line of scrimmage, which will help the Texans run game. Miller, with a superior mix of athleticism and smarts, could fill out the slot for the Texans and be an easy catch-and-go outlet for Osweiler while also threatening defenses with his fleet feet. The big problem is that these rookies will take targets away from each other and won't put up consistent Fantasy numbers so long as Hopkins is doing what is expected. Both are worth nothing more than late-round picks.

If the Texans had their way they'd run the ball 40 times a week. They'll rarely have it their way, and they know that, which is why they got Osweiler. They couldn't possibly go back to Brian Hoyer after he melted down in the playoffs last season, so when Osweiler became available in free agency the Texans jumped at the chance and gave him a four-year deal with $37 million guaranteed. It's an obscene amount for a quarterback who's started seven career games, recording multiple touchdowns in just two of them and passing for over 300 yards once. Osweiler is a good caretaker, but for him to post amazing numbers he'll need his receivers to make plays every single week. Easy for DeAndre Hopkins to do, not so easy for his new rookies and everyone else in Houston to do. Osweiler shouldn't be near any Fantasy rosters.
