Scouting report

TB WR Justin Watson - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Chicago Bears

Justin Watson finished 4-40 last week after finishing 2-48 in Week 2 (he was inactive due to injury in Week 3). He's a nice additional option for Tom Brady in this offense, but it's hard to see him being a consistent and reliable option in fantasy unless Scotty Miller gets injured. He's a weak WR5 play at best against Chicago this week.

TB WR Justin Watson - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 vs. Los Angeles Chargers

The Bucs may be without Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Scott Miller (hip/groin), as both have been sidelined in practice this week with injuries. That would bump up Justin Watson, who was sidelined in Week 3 with an injury of his own. Watson has been somewhat productive this season, but he's a tough option to trust. He'd be a risky WR5 play this week in a tough matchup against the Chargers.

TB WR Justin Watson - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Atlanta Falcons

Justin Watson emerged as WR2 for this Bucs offense last week as Tampa deals with the loss of Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Watson finished 5-43-1 off 10 targets against the Texans. He's now scored in two of his last three games. He gets a tougher matchup this week against the Falcons, and he's not a huge name so he carries some risk. We like him as a low-end WR2 or strong WR3 in this high-powered offense.

TB WR Justin Watson - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Houston Texans

With Mike Evans and Chris Godwin ruled out this week, it leaves Tampa with a number of unknown options including Justin Watson, Scotty Miller and Ishmael Hyman. Watson is probably the best out of that bunch, but he finished 2-17 last week. Tampa also has tight ends O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate in the mix. We like Watson as a WR3 or WR4 since there's a lot of promise, but there's also risk since we haven't seen him do much in his NFL career.

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.
