J.J. Watt to retire after season

J.J. Watt announced that he will be retiring at the conclusion of this NFL season.

Fantasy Impact

Watt, a likely candidate for the NFL Hall of Fame, announced that he will be retiring following the end of this season on Tuesday. The Cardinals are out of playoff contention, so that leaves just two more games in his NFL career before he hangs it up. He's won multiple DPOY awards and has been to the Pro Bowl several times throughout the course of his long career, and the Cardinals will need to find somebody to fill his role on the defensive line for next season.

J.J. Watt (calf/illness) listed as questionable for Week 4

J.J. Watt (calf/illness) is officially listed as questionable for the Cardinals' Week 4 matchup against the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Watt was able to get in a limited practice Friday after not practicing the previous two days. If Watt is unable to go in Week 4, that would be a significant loss in what should be a plus matchup against the Panthers and Baker Mayfield.

J.J. Watt (calf) expected to play on a pitch count Sunday

J.J. Watt (calf) is expected to play Sunday, but will likely be on a pitch count, according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Impact

Watt missed the Cardinals’ game in Week 1 and was limited in practice Thursday and Friday. He will make his season debut against the Raiders Sunday. The defense obviously is much better with Watt on the field, but if he is on a pitch count in Week 2 his impact may be limited against a new-look Raiders’ offense.

J.J. Watt (calf) did not practice Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Watt was inactive in Week 1 after missing practice time with a calf injury. The 33-year-old will likely be cautious with the injury this early in the season. The next few injury reports will give us an idea if Watt will make his season debut in Week 2 against Las Vegas.
