RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Yates, who was acquired in the offseason, will start the season as Matt Ryan's backup. He'll only see garbage time in a blowout, unless an injury calls him into action.

2013

Yates is expected to serve as Matt Schaub's backup in 2013.

2012

After starting five games in Matt Schaub's absence last season, Yates will return to his back-up role this season with valuable game experience in case he is needed again.

2011

Yates turned around his pro prsspects with a breakout 2010 season at the University of North Carolina, turning himself into a fifth-round draft pick by Houston. He showed good maturity in 2010 after three seasons of inconsistency and calls for him to be replaced. Yates improved his accuracy and decision making in 2010 to lead the Tar Heels to an 8-5 record in a suspension-plagued season for the program. The Texans still have Matt Leinart, who was re-signed to a two-year deal, so Yates looks like the No. 3 QB for the Texans.
