No tight end for Houston?

Post by JFergusonXFL » Sat Jan 11, 2020 10:07 pm

Does anyone know what the deal is with Houston not having a single tight end on their roster?

They're running the Run & Shoot, which generally doesn't have a use for tight ends.

They have a couple Tackles that can play both according to June Jones at a fan event ... Avery Jordan being one of them 🤘🏽

That’s June Jones system. Occasionally he’ll line up an extra tackle there or a tweener RB/FB there.

Houston starts 4 WR’s as their base offense.

No one who has followed June Jones career is surprised by this. He doesn’t have TE’s in his system. He’s had some jumbo sized receivers who could slide over there if needed but the run and shoot is 4 wide receivers on every play. The extra OT or even a big back might get some time in a TE alignment but that’s only if the situation calls for it.

From a fantasy football perspective. All 4 of the Roughnecks starting receivers will be viable weekly starters. The 5th and 6th receivers might even emerge.
