NFL Beat: Texans reportedly soften QB Deshaun Watson trade expectations

With the Texans reportedly softening their position regarding the expectations for a Deshaun Watson trade, the Dolphins could potentially meet the reduced asking price.

The Eagles, for example, have been linked to Watson for months. As they attempt to determine whether Jalen Hurts can be a franchise quarterback (last night’s game undercuts that idea), the window for a 2021 trade will be closing on November 2. That’s only five weeks away.

Fantasy Impact: 

A 17-game season makes it harder for a team to fold the tents on 2021 by the Tuesday after Week 8, the story said. Within five weeks, it’s entirely possible that one or more teams will be ready to make the move for Watson before Nov. 2, the story went on to say. With Tagovailoa dealing with an injury and Hurts struggling Monday night against the Cowboys, the story speculates the Dolphins and Eagles are teams to watch. And other teams may get involved as well.
