Betting Impact:

Hargreaves makes the second former first round corner that the Houston Texans have added to their roster during the season. Hargreaves was performing well below expectations in Tampa Bay. He has allowed career highs with a 69 percent completion percentage and 9.7 yards allowed per target. According to Sports Info Solutions, Hargreaves is boasting a deserved catch rate against of a career worst 91.3 percent. Hargreaves adds some talented depth to a Texans squad that will be looking to resuscitate his value. If Hargreaves is forced to start on the outside, this contest could very well hit the over, as he is someone opposing teams have singled out to target in coverage all season.
