Draft note
by John Paulsen
Watson owned the No. 1 per game average as a rookie, but only played seven games. He followed that up with a No. 3 finish at his position. He’s a bit of an injury risk behind a shaky offensive line, but he’s one of the most productive quarterbacks in fantasy and has a potent receiving corps to throw to.

HOU QB Deshaun Watson - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Deshaun Watson's second NFL season left the Texans as intrigued with their young quarterback's potential as the rest of us are. Watson made significant strides despite being sacked more than anyone else in the league. In fact, no quarterback with at least 200 dropbacks was pressured more often than Watson last year (or in 2017), yet still, Watson excelled. "There's a ton of upside with Deshaun, great kid, great skill set," former GM Brian Gaine said at the NFL scouting combine. "Upside" is an interesting notion considering the production we've seen to date. Watson threw for 4,165 yards and 26 touchdowns with nine interceptions. He also rushed for 551 yards and five touchdowns. What helped Watson's fantasy numbers was his lack of interceptions. As Pro Football Focus recently noted, the second-year signal-caller from Clemson had a 10-game stretch to finish the season where he chucked only two picks.

Fantasy Downside
The Texans haven't done Watson many favors with regard to the offensive line this offseason, and their efforts in this year's draft were somewhat suspect.

2019 Bottom Line
That said, what is working in his favor? A receiving corps led by DeAndre Hopkins. If Hopkins, Will Fuller and Keke Coutee can remain on the field together all season, Watson will have as strong a group of pass-catchers as any QB in the league and his chances at living up to our ranking seem all but certain.
