Insight: Prior to getting cut, Yates had fallen to fourth on the team's QB depth chart behind Ryan Fitzpatrick, Tom Savage and Case Keenum. Yates should find a backup job somewhere but he won't have fantasy value.

Description: Texans quarterback T.J. Yates completed 12-of-17 passes for 98 yards and two interceptions in relief of an injured Matt Schaub last week and it apparently wasn't enough to win him the starting gig in Week 7.
Insight: Houston has announced that Case Keenum will start against Kansas City. Yates started five regular season games in 2011 going 2-3 and helped the Texans win a playoff game against Cincinnati that year before losing to Baltimore.
