2013 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Oct-21-2013 by Chris Weeks
FOX Sports Jay Glazer tweeted this Friday morning:
"Texans assistants have been informed by Coach (Gary) Kubiak that he has been fired. Coach told them he loves them but has been let go."
Kubiak has been Houston's head coach since 2006 and, prior to today, had been presiding over a team that had lost 11 consecutive games. The Texans' 2-11 record is the worst in the NFL. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will serve as interim head coach.
A very tough year for Kubiak on and off the field ends in the way most thought it would, however maybe not during the season. It's hard to remember that the Texans were 11-1 last year. Then they lost 42-14 to the Patriots on Monday Night Football, and they have gone 4-14 since. The quarterback position led the downfall, and you have to assume the Texans will be looking to upgrade there in the draft. However, Matt Schaub is under contract through 2016 after signing a five-year, $66 million deal in September of last year.

2013 Mock Draft Results
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
|3.08||FFToolbox - Brian Murphy - If I had been enjoying a beverage during this draft, I would have done a spit-take upon seeing that Andre Johnson was available after 31 picks in a PPR draft. He's getting up there in age, and it's fine to still worry about his hamstrings. But after he was so dominant for much of last season, it's improper to expect another round of misfortune. This was a straight steal.|
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
|2.07||World Ranked Player #26 - Andre barring health is a top 5 WR. He will approach 100 receptions and in a league you have to start 3 WRs and up to 5 figured it was a good selection to get a WR anchor.|

|3.12||Bruno Boys - As with my earlier picks the idea here was to pick against the grain. After only one wide receiver went during the 12 prior picks, the value was there. It was a complete surprise to see someone like Andre Johnson still out there. He has been going before the 4th round in 2 starting WR formats so there is no way he should have fell to me there in a 3WR format. The addition of DeAndre Hopkins to the offense will likely free Johnson up for even more opportunities. The wear on Foster makes it likely the Texans will shift towards the pass in 2013. Getting a legitimate top 8 WR here is just another example of the benefits of waiting on WR this season.|
