2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
At the time of writing Watson has been suspended six games by the arbitrator. Now we await the league's decision on whether or not to appeal the decision with commissioner Roger Goodell acting as the final judge. So, it's still anyone's guess whether Watson will see the field this season, and if he does, for how long. Clearly his fantasy value depends on how many starts he makes, so for purposes of this outlook, let's work on the assumption he misses half the season.

Watson was a top-5 QB in the last two seasons he played, and has essentially been a top fantasy option in every game he's been a starter in the NFL. He excelled with much lesser talent and coaching around him when he was in Houston, so the move to Cleveland is an upgrade in every way. With the way NFL athletes train, and the time he's been able to put into this offseason, rustiness and system comfort are the least of my concerns. He will be prepared to play when the time comes. Watson's value comes solely in the form of how many starts he can make for you in the fantasy season. He's worth a significant draft investment if he can play 12+ games, but much less if it's 8 or less.

As for Brissett, the man Cleveland turns to if/when Watson is suspended? Steer clear. In two seasons as a near full-time starter, Brissett couldn't reach 20 passing touchdowns, barely completed 60% of his passes, and has demonstrated after 6 years in the league that he's a back-up level talent at the very best. Not exactly a ringing fantasy endorsement.

News From The Past 90 Days
NFL will appeal Deshaun Watson's disciplinary ruling
Expected to pursue a significant increase in punishment of Watson
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Aug 3, 4:10 pm

Cleveland Browns
NFL has exercised its right to appeal Deshaun Watson's six-game suspension, according to a league source. NFL is expected to pursue a significant increase in punishment of Deshaun Watson, with some league sources predicting they will seek to suspend him for the entire season, per league sources. (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Roger Goodell or someone he designates will decide how long the suspension and of fine will be. We're likely to see more than six-game suspension when this is all said an done. Buckle up for Jacoby Brissett to be the Browns starting QB for much of the season.


Deshaun Watson suspended 6 games
League has 3 days to appeal
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Aug 1, 8:24 am

Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson will serve a six-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy following accusations of sexual misconduct. Watson will not be fined, the source told Schefter. Either side would have three days to submit an appeal in writing. In that case, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell or his designee "will issue a written decision that will constitute full, final and complete disposition of the dispute,'' per terms of Article 46 in the CBA. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The players union stated last night that they will not appeal the decision, likely aware of the suspension length. Now we wait to see if the league will appeal and allow Goodell to be the final judge in the case. The Browns will roll with Jacoby Brissett at quarterback for as long as Watson is suspended.


Watson settles 20 of 24 cases against him
NFL says this will have no impact on disciplinary process
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jun 21, 11:55 am

Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson has settled all but four of the lawsuits filed against him, attorney Tony Buzbee said in a statement Tuesday. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Tuesday that, "today's development has no impact on the collectively bargained disciplinary process." (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Four cases involving Watson remain outstanding. As for discipline, the NFL suggests this will have no impact on how long Watson's suspension may be. We're expecting a ruling by the league at some point prior to training camp but an exact timeline is unknown.
