Draft note
by John Paulsen
Watson was a favorite of Kevin Zatloukal’s Rookie WR Success Model, coming in ahead of Christian Kirk, Courtland Sutton and Calvin Ridley, though his gaudy stats (81 catches for 1083 yards and 14 touchdowns) against questionable competition had something to do with that. However, Watson’s measurables (4.49 40-yard dash, 87th percentile speed score, 88th percentile burst score and a 92nd-percentile catch radius, per Player Profiler) also contributed to his strong finish in Kevin’s model. The team let Adam Humphries walk in free agency and traded away DeSean Jackson, so Watson just has to beat out Breshad Perriman to get on the field with regularity.

TB WR Justin Watson - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Justin Watson has decent size (6-foot-2, 215 pounds) and could contend for the third receiving role on the Bucs. He’ll be competing with Breshad Perriman, but if he can earn a decent role on the team, he could provide some value in the case of an injury.

Fantasy Downside
Watson has just one reception in his NFL career, a five-yard catch last season. He’s behind Mike Evans, O.J. Howard and Chris Godwin for touches and will be competing with Perriman.

2019 Bottom Line
Watson isn’t worth drafting, but could make a name for himself if there’s an injury. We saw Tampa Bay have deep value last season, getting points out of Evans, Godwin, Adam Humphries and DeSean Jackson. But we have to see it to believe it with Watson.
