If you've missed any of your team's weeks, now is great time to catch up. The series will take a brief hiatus for a couple of weeks until the draft is out of the way.

Catch Rate: This stat takes the percentage of catches made versus times a receiver was targeted. How will the Texans replace Joel Dreessen?
Success Rate: This stat looks at successful runs. This was a controversial piece. I still don't understand why.
Passer Rating Differential (PRD): This stat looks at the difference between offensive and defensive passer rating. What happens if the Texans take a step back on defense?
