As the Cowboys showed, the Texans are not that tough against the run, and they're especially vulnerable to screens and draws, to boot. The reason the team is statistically where they are against the run is because the secondary is like a sieve.
In week one, DMC had 6 catches and a receiving TD, but the next two weeks, they just let him do his thing on the ground. So I think he's a good play whichever way the Texans play him, because they aren't good enough to stop him altogether.
