Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Coming off best season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett recorded career highs in snaps, tackles and sacks over 15 games in 2019.

Scarlett had primarily been a special teams player during his first three years in Houston, but he emerged as a bigger contributor on defense after the Texans traded Jadeveon Clowney to Seattle prior to the start of the season. When taking that into consideration, it's no surprise Scarlett increased his production. Looking a bit deeper, however, it's notable that he dropped over the second half of the season, which suggests the rigors of more playing time -- Scarlett continued as a regular member on special teams -- may have reduced his effectiveness. The second half was also a time when J.J. Watt missed time due to a pectoral injury. Both Scarlett and fellow outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus experienced diminished output with Watt out of the lineup. That could be a reason why Houston fired outside linebackers coach John Pagano. Scarlett has one more year remaining on his contract and could play a significant role on defense in 2020; however, the Texans are expected to make changes to a defensive unit that ranked 28th in 2019. They've replaced defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel with Anthony Weaver and are looking for Pagano's replacement.

Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett (Achilles/shoulder) is active for Saturday's game against the Buccaneers.

No surprise here, as multiple limited practices in past weeks didn't keep him off field, as is the case Saturday. He'll once again assume his role with the rest of the Texans' linebacking corps save for Benardrick McKinney (concussion).

Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Deemed questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett (Achilles/shoulder) is questionable for Saturday's game against Houston.

Scarlett turned in three limited practices during the week just as he did the last two weeks prior to playing in both games. He'll likely do the same Saturday.

Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett (Achilles/shoulder) is active for Sunday's tilt against the Titans.

Scarlett is set to take the field after being a limited participant in all three practices leading up to Sunday's contest. He'll draw his usual start in Houston's linebacker corps.

Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Questionable to face Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett (Achilles/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's divisional game against the Titans.

Scarlett was limited in all three practice sessions this week. He followed the same pattern Week 14 but managed to suit up while also sporting a questionable tag. Barring any setbacks, it looks like the starting outside linebacker is on track for Sunday's pivotal matchup in Tennessee.

Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Ready for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett (shoulder) is officially active for Sunday's game against Denver.

Scarlett participated in all three practices on a limited basis all week and came into the game questionable. He'll re-enter the lineup after having missed last week's game, and he's expected to draw the start at one of the outside linebacker positions for Week 14.

December 6, 2019 04:36 PM
Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Takes questionable tag Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett is questionable for Sunday's game against Denver.

Scarlett participated in three practices on a limited basis this week, just as he did before sitting out Week 13. Jacob Martin would once again see an uptick in snaps should the Stanford product need to miss another game.

Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Inactive against New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Scarlett practiced all week in a limited fashion, but he wasn't able to overcome this shoulder issue in time. In his stead, Jacob Martin -- who has seven tackles and a sack through 11 games -- is a top candidate to start at outside linebacker.

Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Officially questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett (shoulder) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Patriots, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

Scarlett logged a trio of limited practices this week. He appears to be trending toward availability versus New England on Sunday, but the final decision on his status could come down to a game-time decision. If Scarlett were forced to miss any time, Jacob Martin and Barkevious Mingo would be candidates to play expanded roles on defense.

Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Notches TFL against Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett produced six tackles -- one for a loss -- during Thursday's 20-17 win over the Colts.

After failing to notch a tackle for loss over the first six games, Scarlett has one in each of the last three contests. With this performance, Scarlett now has a career-high 35 tackles this year.

November 18, 2019 07:28 AM
Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Registers sack in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett had eight tackles and one sack in Sunday's 41-7 loss to the Ravens in Week 11.

Scarlett was the lone Texan to bring down quarterback Lamar Jackson behind the line of scrimmage. Only one other member of Houston's defense -- Charles Omenihu -- was credited with a quarterback hit. It was that type of day for the Texans. This was the second straight game in which Scarlett had a sack. He's part of the crew Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel has been using to fill the void created by J.J. Watt's season-ending pectoral injury.

Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Gets to QB twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett registered two sacks during Houston's 26-3 win over the Jaguars Sunday.

Scarlett's season-high for sacks is two, so his explosive outing in London was quite a surprise. He can be a low-end IDP asset due to his flaky tackle count, as he has posted just 21 stops through nine contests. Scarlett will get some rest in Week 10 and look to add to his 3.5 sacks in Week 11 against the Ravens.

Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Sack on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett recorded two tackles, a sack and a forced fumble across 23 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

Scarlett made a major play in the first quarter of Sunday's loss, strip-sacking Kyle Allen in Texans territory. Scarlett plays a rotation role on defense and also contributes on special teams, but if he continues to make plays, he could find himself in an increased role.

Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Extends with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans signed Scarlett to a contract extension Wednesday.

Scarlett has earned his salary mostly on special teams, but during the 2019 training camp, he's been filling in for Jadeveon Clowney (contract dispute). With rumors circulating that Clowney is being shopped to other teams, Scarlett could join the Texans first-team defense at linebacker.

Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Unofficially second-stringer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett is listed as a second-string outside linebacker on the Texans' first unofficial depth chart.

Despite this listing, Scarlett has been working with the first-team defense in training camp as Jadeveon Clowney stays away from the team due to a standoff over the franchise tag. Although Clowney is expected to return by Week 1, Scarlett would be in line for a significant weekly snap count if the former does not.

August 6, 2019 04:28 PM
Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Filling in for Clowney
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett has been seeing reps opposite Whitney Mercilus, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

That's an arrangement that should remain in play until Jadeveon Clowney -- who is a away from the team due to a contract dispute - returns to to mix.

August 3, 2019 04:44 PM
Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Taking Clowney's reps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett has been filling in for Jadeveon Clowney, who has not reported to camp or signed his franchise tender, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Clowney is expected to report prior to Week 1, so Scarlett should return to his primary role as a key special-teams contributor at that point.

April 16, 2019 12:52 PM
Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Signs tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett signed his one-year tender with the Texans on Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Despite missing the last five games of the 2018 season due to an ankle injury, Scarlett managed to notch 18 tackles (12 solo), one forced fumble and one interception. Now back for a fourth season in Houston, he projects to again provide depth at linebacker and contribute on special teams.

Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Tendered by Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans extended a $2.025 million tender to Scarlett on Monday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.

Scarlett missed the last five games of the season with an ankle injury, but still produced 18 tackles (12 solo), a forced fumble and an interception in 2018. A team could still sign him to an offer sheet, which the Texans would have the chance to match. If he stays, he likely would regain his role as a depth linebacker and contributor on special teams.

Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarlett (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Scarlett was a limited practice participant this week and was listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts, so the move comes as somewhat of a surprise. The 25-year-old will finish the season with 18 total tackles, an interception and a forced fumble in 12 games.
