Just how unrepeatable was Watson's 2017 season? Well, since 2000, just four other quarterbacks have thrown a touchdown on more than 7.9 percent of their passes. We're talking about the entire careers of Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger, and Philip Rivers. Watson's rate was 9.3 percent in 2017. Looking at all quarterbacks in 2017, only he and Carson Wentz threw a touchdown on more than 6.7 percent of their attempts, which should give you all you need to know. In fact, you should expect his touchdown percentage to be cut in half (and it'd still be good). He's still among the top quartebacks because of his rushing ability, but don't pay for last year's production, which was still just six games worth.

Deshaun Watson on the field for opening of OTAs

Houston Texans second-year quarterback Deshaun Watson was on the field participating in 7-on-7 drills as the club held its first OTA practice of the 2018 season. This was Watson's first action since tearing his ACL in November and he told the media that "My knee feels [good and] comfortable.

Fantasy Impact

Watson was electric in his six starts for the Texans, throwing for 1,597 yards and 18 touchdowns, while also chipping in 269 yards and another pair of touchdowns on the ground. Watson remains well ahead of the recovery timetable for an ACL injury and looks poised to be a top-5 fantasy signal-caller in 2018, with massive weekly upside.
