2021 Fantasy Outlook
Mills was selected in the third round of the 2021 draft and it's no surprise the Texans took a quarterback, as the organization suddenly faces uncertainty at a position that once appeared set for the next decade. The Stanford product's maturation as a pro could take some time due to limited experience. His first two years with the Cardinal were capped due to injuries, and he started just 11 games over the last two seasons. With Deshaun Watson's future with the team cloudy, Tyrod Taylor could well take over as the starter to start the coming campaign, with Mills potentially getting a look by midseason. The Texans need to determine if he's their signal caller of the future, or if they'll go QB hunting in the first round of the 2022 draft. Read Past Outlooks

Set for another start
QBHouston Texans
October 20, 2021
Texans head coach David Culley confirmed that Mills will start Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.
ANALYSIS
In a related note, Culley said Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) could return to practice this week and potentially come off injured reserve Week 8, but Mills will get at least one more start while Taylor is sidelined. Additionally, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston notes that Culley maintains that Taylor will reclaim his starting job when healthy, but that won't happen until the signal-caller's hamstring is "completely right." Through his first four starts in place of Taylor, Mills has completed 66.1 percent of his passes for 6.7 yards per attempt and a 4:6 TD:INT.
