Report: Texans WR DeVier Posey will begin regular season on Physically Unable To Perform list

This is not unexpected considering that Texans wide receiver DeVier Posey @DPo8 would be less than nine months removed from surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon by Week 1, but here it is. ESPN's Adam Schefter has been told by a league source that Posey will open the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list. That means he will miss at least the first six games on the schedule.

Fantasy Analysis:

Posey was a third-round selection a year ago and caught six passes in 11 games as a rookie. If he was healthy right now, perhaps Houston would have a different view of its receiving corps heading into this draft, but a difference-making addition was needed either way. Now they have DeAndre Hopkins to go with Posey, Keshawn Martin, and Lestar Jean across from Andre Johnson. In other words, the Texans will be spending another pick on a WR either today or tomorrow.
