Fantasy Football Player Notes

2021 Draft Rankings

Tyrod Taylor Note

If I'm being honest, I want nothing to do with the Texans this year. That's rare for me to say, as I'm a value-based fantasy manager, but I just don't see value on this team. Watson has stood by the fact that he doesn't want to play for the Texans and isn't participating in camp. On top of that, he might be facing a suspension by the NFL for his pending assault cases. We talk about how easy replacing a quarterback is in fantasy every year, so why would we risk a draft pick on Watson? Unless it's one of your final picks, I would just avoid the situation. Taylor has given us fantasy-viable performances in the past, but the last time that happened was in 2017, when he had much more mobility than he does today. Despite starting at least 14 games in three straight seasons with the Bills, Taylor never threw for more than 3,035 yards in a season. He's now 33 years old and playing for 65-year-old David Culley with one of the worst supporting casts in the league. He also has the Texans third-round pick Mills waiting in the wings. This is one of those situations where I'm okay being wrong if one of these quarterbacks pans out.

Deshaun Watson Note

The Texans want Watson to play for them. Watson doesn't want to play for them. Watson wants to be traded. No team wants the PR nightmare that would come with a trade for Watson. Also, the Texans don't want to trade him. The NFL might also step in and suspend Watson for these off-the-field incidents. It's not one obstacle, it's many of them. He shouldn't be on your redraft radar for the time being.
