Pro Football Focus grades each individual player's performance and assigns them a grade. All 32 teams use Pro Football Focus. 

Each week we will take a look at some of the key grades as well as some from the Texans upcoming opponent. They also do great fantasy analysis and draft coverage as well. Stats are for the previous game unless otherwise noted. You can join Pro Football Focus here

Greg Mancz - 80.0 offense grade

Mancz has been in and out of the lineup due to injuries to the offensive line. He was only in for a handful of snaps, 22, but was well above average in run blocking and pass blocking. He has been a nice player when given the opportunity. With the likelihood, the dings hang around on the offensive line Mancz could be a key player down the road. 

Zach Fulton - 86.8 pass blocking grade

His best of the season in this category. Fulton struggled against the Cleveland defense when run blocking but he crushed it when he had to pass block. This was especially important when he slid out to tackle for a few snaps when his fellow offensive linemen needed a break. Fulton has struggled a time or two but he has been consistent in at least one element in most games. 

Zach Cunningham - 92.6 defensive grade

His best of the season. He was a monster in this game. He deflected an early pass and then scored another one. Most of the success against him came late when the Texans defense was playing less aggressive and basic defense. He has been fantastic since his return from injury with two of his three highest grades. 

Benardrick McKinney - 39.4 defensive grade

His lowest of the season. I wonder how much of this happened late when Cleveland was dumping down pass after pass in an attempt to catch up. McKinney almost never grades out this poor. I am willing to write this off as an anomaly and product of Cleveland's late-game attack. 

Anthony Costanzo - 49.5 pass blocking grade

Uh oh. This fella is not going to like seeing the Texans on Sunday. The Colts offense finally sprung a leak and allowed multiple sacks and the left tackle allowed two of them. He allowed another six pressures as well. The Texans should be attacking him non-stop in an effort to keep the Colts offensive line in disarray. The team just had their worst pass blocking game since week three. The Texans didn't get hardly any pressure against the Browns. that likely won't be the case against the Colts.

One thing that needs to be talked about more is the Texans' collection of talent on offense.

Everyone knows what Deshaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins can do, but getting Will Fuller and Keke Coutee back and healthy this year will be huge for the offense.

ESPN 97.5's Joel Blank talks about his expectations for Houston's offense, and why several Texans players will be highly coveted in fantasy football leagues.
