Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Watson was hit a lot in Week 1 but was still able to post 268 yards and three touchdowns in the game. He has one of the best receiving corps to work with and should be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (back) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: Watson was roughed up in the Week 1 but is on track to play in Week 2. He threw for four touchdowns last week and should be considered a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues this week.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson completed 20 of his 30 attempts for 268 yards, three touchdowns and an interception Monday, Sept. 9, against the New Orleans Saints in Week 1. Watson also ran four times for 40 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: He looked every bit the part of a top-five fantasy passer in this one, despite being sacked an all too familiar six times. One has to question how many more hits he can take before breaking down, but it should improve as left tackle Laremy Tunsil spends more time in the system after joining just five days ago. He remains a QB1 at home vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 2.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson has accounted for 52 touchdowns, 45 passing and seven rushing, in 23 career games.
Huddle Up: Between his rushing stats and knack for putting the ball in the end zone, Watson has already established himself as a top-five fantasy quarterback. Entering his third season, Watson has a legitimate chance to finish as the top fantasy scorer at his position.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson will 'always make a jump' in performance, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. 'I've always said that I don't think there's any ceiling on Deshaun Watson,' O'Brien said.
Huddle Up: With plenty of weapons to throw to in the passing game and his running ability, Watson needs to be treated as a top-five fantasy at the quarterback position.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson posted a league-best 88.2 passer rating when under pressure in the 2018 season.
Huddle Up: Watson lived up to the sophomore fantasy hype, throwing for 4,165 yards and 26 touchdowns while rushing for 551 yards and five scores to finish fourth among fantasy QBs. He'll be one of the top five QBs to come off the board again this summer.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson became the first quarterback in NFL history with 4,000-plus passing yards (4,165), 25-plus touchdown passes (26), 500-plus rushing yards (551) and five rushing touchdowns (five) in a single season in 2018.
Huddle Up: Watson didn't disappoint in his first full season, and he is a safe bet for QB1 production for the foreseeable future.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson completed 29 of 49 passes for 235 yards, throwing one touchdown and one interception in a wild-card playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Jan. 5. He added 76 yards on the ground.
Huddle Up: Watson was pressured frequently, as is customary behind a poor offensive line. He still managed a respectable yardage total, but had some errant throws every now and then. Watson's running ability and talented receiving corps put him comfortably in QB1 territory heading into 2019.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson went 25-for-35 for 234 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 17. He also rushed for 66 yards and one touchdown on 13 carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Watson has been playing well over the last several weeks and has seven total touchdowns over the last three weeks. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in playoff fantasy leagues.
Posted: 12/23/2018 8:12 pm UTC
Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson completed 29-of-40 passes for 339 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 16 against the Philadelphia Eagles and he rushed for 49 yards and two scores.
Huddle Up: Watson stepped up and had a big day despite the fact the team was missing starting tailback Lamar Miller and wideout Demaryius Thomas left with what might be a torn Achilles'. The Texans wrap up the regular season with the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 17, and Watson will be there with plenty to play for.
