2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Deshaun Watson again finished in the top five at the quarterback position in 2019, although his statistical output waned some from 2018. His interception rate was up and his completion percentage was down; he also rushed for less yardage. Nevertheless, he had a very solid season and led the Texans to a victory in the playoffs.

If there is a reason to not blame Watson for his slight dip, it is that the Texans' offensive line was very poor at protecting him. For the second straight season, Watson was at the top of the league in sacks, taking 44 in the regular season and another 11 in the playoffs. The fact that he has consistently been excellent despite very poor protection is impressive.

A few things will change this season for Watson. First, Bill O'Brien will apparently no longer be calling plays. Offensive coordinator Tim Kelly, who will be in his second season in that role, will call the plays. How that will change the overall offense, and specifically the run/pass ratio, is to be seen.

Second, the Texans' best receiver, DeAndre Hopkins, is gone. This certainly hurts Watson, since the two had built a nice rapport and he must now work to build that same chemistry with two new receivers (Cooks and Cobb) - despite limited offseason work.

Third, the backfield has changed. Though Duke Johnson is still around and will likely continue flanking Watson on passing downs, David Johnson is now likely to be the primary back instead of Lamar Miller or Carlos Hyde. If David Johnson returns to his form of a couple seasons ago this could be a positive for the offense as a whole.

To this point in his career, Watson has been incredibly durable. If the sacks continue, however, you'd have to assume that will catch up with his body at some point. The Texans will likely look to limit his rushing to some degree to keep him healthy, even though the rushing ability is a key part of his fantasy value. I'd expect him to take a small step back without Hopkins, but overall I think he'll finish very close to the same place in the QB rankings during 2020.

Texans can Bill O'Brien
Romeo Crennel to serve as interim head coach
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 5, 6:30 pm

Houston Texans
Bill O'Brien has been fired as Texans' head coach and general manager, effective immediately, according to league sources not authorized to speak publicly. (Houston Chronicle - John McClain)

FFToday's Take: For many Houston fans, this move comes about 6-7 months too late after O'Brien won a power struggle with DeAndre Hopkins and shipped him off to Arizona. The Texans are in the world of hurt right - mostly of O'Brien's doing - as they are 0-4 with no first- or second-round picks in the 2021 draft. O'Brien's departure likely bodes well for Deshaun Watson, but it might take until 2022 to start seeing the positive returns.
