News: 4 days agoMills completed all three of his pass attempts for 14 total yards in Saturday's 17-13 preseason win over the Saints.
Spin: Mills failed to guide the Texans' first-team offense to a single first down throughout his only two series at the helm Saturday, but he also was without his No. 1 wide receiver in Brandin Cooks. Mills figures to see a bit more playing time in the team's second preseason contest against the Rams on Friday.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Mills returns as the starter in Houston. The 2021 third-round pick played relatively well in 13 appearances as a rookie despite some rough conditions in Houston. He tossed 16 TDs to 10 INTs and completed a healthy 67% of his passes. He hit for the occasional big fantasy week (four top-10s), but generally wasn't a viable option (28th in PPG during 11 weeks he played in full). Mills is a nonfactor with his legs, and the supporting cast in Houston remains a work in progress behind Brandin Cooks. He's not on the fantasy radar.
