Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson faces the Buffalo Bills in the Wild Card round of the playoffs Saturday, Jan. 4, and the Bills allowed the fewest yards per rush (2.8) to opposing quarterbacks this season.
Huddle Up: Watson is certainly capable of beating opponents with his arm, but his running ability is a big reason why he has become of the premier fantasy quarterbacks. Facing a stingy Buffalo defense, owners may want to opt for a different quarterback in playoff contests this weekend.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (back) is officially active for the team's Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: Watson will be in uniform but is not expected to receive a lot of playing time during the game. Fantasy players should look for other quarterbacks and keep Watson on the bench.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson is expected to serve as the backup to QB A.J. McCarron for Week 17's game against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Since the Texans have already clinched the AFC South, the team will likely rest Watson so that he can be ready for the beginning of the postseason next week. McCarron has only thrown one pass all season and should be avoided in most fantasy formats.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (back) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: The Texans may not have anything to play for in Week 17, so fantasy players will need to check the inactive list to see if Watson will play. He can be a starting option in fantasy leagues if he is active for the game.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (back) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: The Texans are expected to play their starters this week, so Watson should receive most of the snaps during the game and can be a No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (back) was limited at practice Wednesday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: The Texans still have a shot to move into the No. 3 seed in the AFC playoffs, but they'll need the Kansas City Chiefs to lose Sunday, Dec. 29. The Texans play the later game and will know where they sit before kickoff. Watson won't be jeopardized, and fantasy managers will need to have another option at the ready.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson completed just 19 of 32 pass attempts for 184 yards with no touchdowns and one interception Saturday, Dec. 21, in a 23-20 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He added 37 rushing yards on seven carries.
Huddle Up: It was a disastrous performance for those counting on Watson in their fantasy championship matchup. He's now at risk of being rested in Week 17 after the Texans clinched the AFC South title.

Houstan Texans QB Deshaun Watson faces the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 16, and the Buccaneers are allowing the third-most passing yards per game in the NFL this season.
Huddle Up: Watson has been a little turnover prone in recent weeks, but with his running ability, his floor is typically around 300 total yards and a couple of scores. Against Tampa Bay's porous secondary, he should have no trouble posting QB1 numbers.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson went 19-for-27 for 243 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions against the Tennessee Titans in Week 15. He also rushed for 32 yards on seven carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Watson has thrown eight touchdowns over the last four games but also has five interceptions during that span. He should have success against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next week and can be a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues.
