Schaub is a pretty good QB but I think people are over-rating just how important he is to Houston. Teams have been putting 8 or 9 guys in the box all year against Houston regardless of Schaub and they have still run the ball very well. I think you can downgrade Daniels and Johnson a tiny bit but I think Foster actually sees a small increase in value from this. The games will probably be closer from here on out for Houston meaning more carries for Foster and less for Tate. I think now is an excellent buy low time on Foster and Andre Johnson because of their soft FF playoff schedule and perceived hit in value.
If Leinart does struggle badly, TJ Yates (rookie QB out of UNC) looks like he has some promise. Kubiak has been comparing the guy to an early career Schaub with a slightly weaker arm. Still, Yates played 4 years in college and comes from a pro-style system. Its not inconceivable that he couldn't step in and play pretty well if Leinart lays a turd. Maybe I am completely wrong, but I see this as a good opportunity to try and trade for any Texans you can for the stretch run. I think they will be golden during the FF playoffs which is what its all about (Week 15 - Carolina, Week 16 - Indy).
