Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Even without Hopkins, Watson is going to be just fine for fantasy due to his rushing and playmaking ability. His overall ceiling will take a hit without Hopkins present, but he's still going to be a safe option to roll out every single week.Allen's going to be a fantasy star again this season due to his rushing ability. He's a factor on the goal line and those rushing TDs are fantasy gold for a QB.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
There is plenty of reason to consider Kyler as your #4 fantasy quarterback ahead of Watson now that DeAndre Hopkins is out of town but frankly, fantasy value has much more to do with volume than surrounding talent. The Texans should be bad this season which ought to lead to an additional 50+ pass attempts in 2020 than we've grown used to seeing. That alone would more than supplement the fantasy impact of losing Hopkins. 
Kevin Wheeler

 With an ADP of QB7 I just won't be drafting him often, if ever.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Just to play devil's advocate, Hopkins put up 1165 and 7 last year on 150 targets. A more spread out offense with more efficient production could Prevent Watson from really declining at allIt seems like a forgone conclusion Josh Allen will be vulturing TDs from Singletary, and more specifically, Moss. What if they brought in Moss to protect Allen from those Goal line carries though? 17 rushing TDs the last 2 years have salvaged a lot of bad Josh Allen weeks for fantasy
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Let's be clear: Losing your No. 1 receiver (DeAndre Hopkins) that you targeted nearly 10 times per game is going to hurt production, especially when he was the type of receiver you could throw the ball up to in one-on-one situations and expect him to win. The Texans now have Will Fuller, Brandin Cooks, Randall Cobb, Kenny Stills, and Keke Coutee as his primary receivers. That's a list complied of speed and slot... that's it. Watson might be running more than ever in 2020, which is very appealing to fantasy owners, but his efficiency through the air is going to come down. We've never seen Watson without Hopkins, so he comes with an additional level of concern that you don't want when selecting a quarterback in the top six rounds.I'm not questioning Allen's ability to finish as a top-eight quarterback (where he's being drafted), because he finished as the No. 6 quarterback last year. However, his rushing touchdowns will come back down to earth. He scored nine of them in 2019, while Lamar Jackson scored seven rushing for more than double Allen's yards. The addition of Stefon Diggs won't hurt Allen's passing totals, but it's on the ground where he makes most of his marks, and I'm expecting that to regress.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Ideally, Watson will not be so up and down in 2020, but his season stats are undeniable. He had 3,852 yards passing and 26 passing touchdowns to go along with 413 yards rushing and 7 rushing touchdowns.Allen had only 3,089 yards passing and 20 passing touchdowns, but he also added 109 rushing attempts for 510 yards and 9 touchdowns. His running ability has him in the QB1 discussion.
