LB - PIT
The Pittsburgh Steelers have exercised LB T.J. Watt’s fifth-year option on his rookie contract, keeping him in Pittsburgh through the 2021 season.
Over the last two seasons, Watt has established himself as one of the league’s best linebackers. In 2019, he recorded a career-high 14.5 sacks to go along with 55 tackles. In his three-year career with the Steelers, he’s totaled 177 tackles and a whopping 34.5 sacks. He’s cemented himself as a top-10 option in IDP leagues and fantasy owners can expect much of the same from Watt in 2020.
T.J. Watt tallied four solo tackles, one assisted tackle, half of a TFL, half of a sack, two QB hits, and a forced fumble in a 28-10 loss to the Ravens this past Sunday.
Though the Steelers fell just short of a playoff berth, Watt and the Pittsburgh defense was arguably one of the most disruptive units this year. Watt hit personal bests in TFLs, sacks, and QB hits, finishing in the top four in each of those categories. He is a catalyst for this defense and the team as a whole and should be considered one of the premier options for next season.
T.J. Watt recorded two solo tackles, three assisted tackles, one TFL, one sack, three QB hits, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery in a devastating 16-10 loss to the Jets on Sunday.
Watt did everything he could to propel the Steelers to a victory, but the offense sputtered when it mattered most. His efforts, though, were not in vain for those competing in the championship rounds. Watt and the Steelers fight for their playoff hopes in a showdown with the Ravens in Week 17.
T.J. Watt dropped three solo tackles, one assisted tackle, 2.5 TFLs, 0.5 sacks, two QB hits, one pass defended, and one forced fumble in a 17-10 loss to the Bills.
Though Pittsburgh came up just short in a primetime matchup, the younger Watt brother showed just how disruptive and integral he is to this defense. He tied his personal best of 13 sacks he set just last year but took only fourteen games to do so. Watt is a no-brainer against the porous Jets OL when the Steelers head to New Jersey next Sunday.
T.J. Watt posted one solo tackle, one assisted tackle, one TFL, one QB hit, one pass defended, and one interception, as Pittsburgh escaped Glendale with a 23-17 win over the Cardinals.
Watt had his "worst" outing since Week 1, a testament to how dominant a force he has become for this Steelers defense. Even then, he still managed to pressure Kyler Murray and grabbed one of three interceptions on the day against the #1 overall pick. Watt will have a chance to demonstrate his abilities in a primetime matchup against the Bills on SNF.
