T.J. Watt (rest) won't play in Week 17

Steelers LB T.J. Watt (rest) won't play in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Pittsburgh is resting a lot of their key starters as they feel it's more important to enter the playoffs healthy than to fight for the No. 2 seed in the AFC. One would figure that the Browns should have little issue winning this one.

T.J. Watt (knee) 'good to go' for Week 5

LB T.J. Watt (knee) is "good to go" for Sunday's Week 5 matchup against the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Watt missed practice Thursday due to a knee injury, but is "good to go" for Sunday. He "felt good" and was "flying around" during Friday's practice. Watt plays a key role in the Steelers defense, and for IDP league formats is currently 34th among all linebackers in the latest expert consensus rankings for Week 5.

T.J. Watt’s fifth-year option has been exercised by the Steelers

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.

Fantasy Impact

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 finishes as the highest scoring IDP in 2019

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.

Fantasy Impact

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 delivers in Week 16

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.

Fantasy Impact

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.
