2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
What a fun seven weeks it was! Prior to his injury, Watson appeared to be one of the most game-changing players of the 2017 season. As a mostly undrafted player, Watson was a waiver wire pick up following his emergence to the starting lineup in Week 1. Following that, Watson finished as a top 12 quarterback 71.43% of his weeks. And his only two non-QB1 weeks were weeks 1 and 2.

On a points per game basis, Watson was the top overall QB in fantasy football by a margin of nearly 3 points. A significant portion of this scoring came from his rushing success. Despite playing only 6.5 games, Watson had the 11th most rushing yards among QBs on the 17th most attempts. He added 2 rushing touchdowns to help improve his fantasy scoring.

It's fair to see why there's excitement surrounding him with regards to his average draft position. Early drafters don't appear to concerned that he tore his ACL on November 2nd as he's currently being drafted at the top of the 4th round as the second QB. Whether it's his rushing production or his connection with his top wide receivers, Watson has demonstrated a capacity to score fantasy points quickly. As a primarily late-round QB drafter, I'll probably be passing on Watson in the early rounds, but he has the ceiling to anchor a team with weekly top 12 QB production.

Injury Watson thinks he'll be a "full go" at camp
Tore his ACL on November 2nd
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Jul 19, 10:00 pm

Houston Texans
Deshaun Watson doesn’t expect to be limited when the Texans begin practice next week. "I feel great," Watson told the NFL Network on Thursday night, via Adam Wexler of KPRC. "I’m getting ready for next week when we report to The Greenbrier; I’m going to be full-go." (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: Watson tore his ACL on November 2nd and reportedly wasn't wearing a knee brace during minicamp. Despite Watson's optimism, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Texans limit the quarterbacks participation in camp. Fantasy owners seem to have full confidence he will be starting Week 1 as he's being drafted in the late third round, early fourth as the 2nd quarterback off the board.

FFToday's Take: Watson is recovering from a torn ACL suffered last November. He had surgery on 11/8/17. After a hot start in his rookie season, Watson will be closely watched by fantasy owners. Watson is scheduled to take part in training camp but he'll likely be brought along slowly in the hope he's ready for Week 1.
