Houston Texas QB Deshaun Watson remains unhappy with the direction of the franchise, and 'just wants out,' a source close to Watson told Sports Illustrated in an online article posted Saturday, Jan. 16.
Huddle Up: Watson is an elite fantasy QB with three straight top-five finishes who is just as good in real life despite a 29-27 record as a starter. He would command a king's ransom on the trade market, but would instantly improve any offense he would join and could even improve his already-elite fantasy stock as well.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson's 'displeasure with the way the organization has been run of late is indeed real, but it will not lead to his asking out,' according to 'someone familiar with his thinking' via Jerome Solomon of the Houston Chronicle.
Huddle Up: The Texans can start making nice with their quarterback by giving Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy a real shot to fill the team's head-coaching vacancy and re-signing impending free-agent Will Fuller. Solomon is also of the belief new general manager Nick Caserio will not allow meddlesome executive vice president of football operations Jack Easterby to have near as much say as he's had recently in the team's direction, which should help the organization get back on its quarterback's good side. For fantasy purposes, Watson should remain a surefire QB1 for the foreseeable future.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson has a no-trade clause in his contract but may consider a trade to the Miami Dolphins if he decides to push the Texans to move him, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins have Tua Tagovailoa as their starting quarterback, but Watson would be a big upgrade at the position. It is not known if Watson will be playing for the Texans or another team next season but will be a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson received backing from new general manager Nick Caserio on Friday, Jan. 8. 'He's our quarterback,' Caserio said at his introductory news conference. 'I can't tell you how much respect and admiration have for him as a player.'
Huddle Up: Watson and Caserio will certainly be sitting down soon and discussing any issues Watson may have with the franchise, and it remains very unlikely the standout QB gets traded.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson has pondered the possibility of requesting a trade, according to multiple sources.
Huddle Up: Although the Texans finished with the league's third-worst record at 4-12, Watson enjoyed a career year with a league-leading 4,823 passing yards and a personal-best 33 passing touchdowns to finish fourth among fantasy QBs with 435.6 total points. The Texans would need a massive return to trade Watson and are sure to be inundated with offers on just this report alone.

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks said Friday, Jan. 1, that he wants to remain with the team in 2021 and continue to grow with QB Deshaun Watson.
Huddle Up: Cooks could be a potential cap casualty this offseason, but he will be a WR3 with upside if he remains in Houston. He has been particularly effective since the suspension of Will Fuller, and he enters Week 17 just 16 yards shy of 1,000 for the year.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (hand) said he'll play in Week 17 despite a hand injury he suffered when his hand was caught underneath a facemask on the follow through of a throw.
Huddle Up: Watson and the Texans have nothing to play for in the season finale. So it wouldn't be a surprise if he were limited or didn't play at all. Watson is sixth in fantasy points at the position. Despite the 11-loss season, he has still produced.
