No. It might sound arrogant and I don't have the pick record to back this up, but I don't pay attention to what others do entirely. Of course I like to see the trend, but in the end I go where I go. Same with baseball-type fantasy games. They are fans of all types, some informed, some not. Actually, if I had to guess what percentage of football fans in this country had extensive knowledge of the Texans I would go with, say, 16%.
As for this situation most people in the nation (I think) watch ESPN and get little to no insight on many teams, Texans included.
