Texans' Tyrann Mathieu: Posts sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu recorded nine tackles (eight solo), including a sack, in Sunday's win over the Redskins.

Mathieu now has three sacks in the Texans' last four games, putting him one shy of doubling his total from his first five seasons combined. He's flourished in his first season with Houston and is on pace for a career high in tackles if he can averaging six stops per game. Looking ahead, Mathieu will aim to continue his strong season into Week 12, when he and the Texans take on Tennessee.

Texans' Tyrann Mathieu: Notches sack in second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu made seven tackles (six solo) and one sack in Thursday's 42-23 win over the Dolphins.

Surprisingly, the Texans only dropped Brock Osweiler twice but Mathieu got in on the action to record a sack for his second straight game. He's been a solid addition to the Texans' defense thus far, and he's on pace for a career-high 92 tackles.

Texans' Tyrann Mathieu: Grabs interception in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu recorded five tackles (four solo), including a sack, and an interception in Sundays win over the Jaguars.

Mathieu put together a complete game Sunday, making plays in coverage and as a pass rusher. His sack was his first of the year and his interception gives him two on the season. He'll look to continue his strong play into Week 8, when the Texans face off against the Dolphins.

Texans' Tyrann Mathieu: Makes impact in first game as Texan
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu had five tackles, a pass defensed, an interception and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Patriots in Week 1.

Mathieu, who was named a team captain last week, made an impact in his first game as a Texan. He reacted to a tipped ball to secure his first pick of the season deep in New England territory, setting up the Texans for their first score, then later pounced on a Rob Gronkowski fumble near midfield. "That's why we brought him here," head coach Bill O'Brien told Drew Dougherty of the Texans' official site. "We think he's an instinctive player. He played a good, solid game."

Texans' Tyrann Mathieu: Focusing on safety position
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans want Mathieu to focus on playing safety, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports. "We told [Mathieu] that we really do value - as you know - we value versatility, but we also understand that a guy needs to have basically one home," said Texans coach Bill O'Brien. "He needs to understand and master that one home, which is safety for Tyrann. Then, in different packages that are played less of the time, maybe he does something else.

Mathieu played a steady mix of safety and slot corner during his time in Arizona, also getting a few looks as an outside corner and nickel linebacker. He led the NFL in both defensive snaps (1,056) and total snaps (1,263) last season, but hasn't quite looked like the best version of himself since suffering the second ACL tear of his career late in the 2015 campaign. With starting free safety Andre Hal returning and slot corner Aaron Colvin also signed this offseason, Mathieu figures to open training camp as the starter at strong safety, a favorable spot for piling up tackles.
