QB - HOU
This Week Outlook
Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports Texans QB Deshaun Watson "is still angry about team's insensitivity to social justice."
Mortensen adds that this includes the team's hiring practices, especially after the franchise didn't interview Chiefs OC Eric Bienemy last week. Watson has a full no-trade clause in his contract and reportedly has interest in going to the Miami Dolphins, with Tua Tagovailoa and additional compensation going back to Houston. This is going to be one of the biggest storylines of the offseason since Watson's presence alone could vault some teams into the inner circle of championship contenders.
Texans star QB Deshaun Watson is rumored to be upset with the organization and its hiring processes for Head Coach and General Manager, as reported by Ian Rapoport. The Texans' brass within the organization have tried to reach out to Watson over the last few days but he has not returned their calls.
Watson finished the season with 36 total touchdowns and just seven interceptions, throwing for over 4,800 yards and achieving an absurd 70.2 completion percentage across all 16 games in the 2020 season. Despite his immense statistical success, the Texans struggled to field a competitive team on either side of the ball after the departure of star wide receiver Deandre Hopkins and former head coach Bill O'Brien. Teams are always looking for the rare opportunity to sign a reportedly disgruntled star quarterback and are likely already reaching out to Watson in hopes of landing his immense talent in 2021. This is a developing situation that will be continuously monitored and updated accordingly.
Deshaun Watson completed 28 of 39 passes for 365 yards and three touchdowns with one interception in Sunday's 41-38 loss to the Titans. He added 12 rushing yards on three carries.
Watson once again looked good but could not come away with the win as the Texan's defense let him down. The 25-year-old QB finishes the season with 4826 passing yards and 33 touchdown passes while also rushing for 444 yards and running for three scores as well. Watson should be going into the 2021 season as a top-five quarterback in fantasy.
Quarterback Deshaun Watson was not listed on the Texans' injury report on Wednesday. The star QB suffered an elbow injury towards the end of the Texans loss to the Bengals on Sunday when he was strip sacked by Sam Hubbard.
Interim head coach Romeo Crennel said of Watson: “As far as I know, he’s doing pretty good. I haven’t heard that he’s not doing well. And so since I feel like he’s doing good, I hope he does good on Sunday, too.” It sounds like Watson should be good to go for Houston's regular season finale against the porous Titans secondary on Sunday.
Deshaun Watson completed 24 of 33 passes for 324 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Texans' 37-31 loss to the Bengals on Sunday. He also rushed five times for 38 yards and committed two fumbles.
On his last fumble on Sunday, Watson appeared to suffer an arm injury that he'll have further evaluated, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on updates to see the status of Watson going into the final week of the season when the Texans face the Titans.
