Derek Watt (hamstring) expected to miss Weeks 4 and 5

Steelers' FB Derek Watt suffered a Grade 2 hamstring pull during their 28-21 win over the Texans on Sunday. Watt is expected to miss at least a couple games.

Fantasy Impact

Watt will be missed as a blocker in Pittsburgh's backfield, in addition to his role on the Steelers' special team units. Don't let Watt's injury prevent you from starting James Conner, JuJu Smith-Schuster or Ben Roethlisberger as the Steelers head down to play the Titans in Week 4.

Derek Watt doing a little bit of everything for the Chargers

Derek Watt has been showing his versatility this preseason for the Chargers and his coaches are impressed. Along with serving as the team's starting fullback, Watt has played on all four special teams units for San Diego. “I’ve been very pleased with the physical part of the run game,” Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt said. “With a guy that’s 237 pounds who played fullback in college, it’s a position where you can’t find guys anymore."

Fantasy Impact

Watt's has no current fantasy value and should remain undrafted in all leagues. His more immediate impact will be helping open running lanes for RB's Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead.

Derek Watt a buzz at Chargers camp

Two players buzzing at Chargers camp are DL Brandon Mebane and FB Derek Watt. Both key additions.

Fantasy Impact

Derek Watt will have little to no personal fantasy relevance, though he could be the key to Melvin Gordon breaking out. As a junior in college, Gordon led the nation with 2,587 rushing yards and 29 touchdowns with Derek leading the way. Watt will be the one to thank when Gordon lives up to his first-round hype
