|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.
| DeAndre Hopkins a gametime decision|
Texans believe he will play

FFToday's Take: Hopkins is coming down to a gametime decision but it sounds like he will play unless the pregame workout goes bad. With Lamar Miller already ruled out, the Texans will be lacking playmakers on offense if Hopkins sits. Demaryius Thomas and DeAndre Carter will serve as secondary receiving options for Deshaun Watson.
|Demaryius Thomas expected to start|
Texans thin at wideout

|From @gmfb Weekend: New #Texans WR Demaryius Thomas is a starter for Houston, and he's been getting some help from DeAndre Hopkins to prepare. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: We figured this was the case when Keke Coutee was announced as out earlier in the week. It may take a while for Thomas and Deshaun Watson to get on the same page, but Thomas should play a ton of snaps in Week 9. He's in the WR3 consideration. Expect RB Tyler Ervin to see some snaps in the slot.
