When it was announced that Will Fuller was out last week, there was concern with Watson, though no one could've expected the Texans to get blown out by the Drew Lock-led Broncos. Watson saved his fantasy day with two rushing touchdowns, finishing as the No. 4 quarterback on the week. Can he bounce back against a Titans team who's dealing with a variety of injuries in their secondary. After losing Malcolm Butler a few weeks back to injured reserve, Adoree Jackson is dealing with a foot injury that had him miss last week (no practice all week), and LeShaun Sims was also held out last week. That's three of their top four cornerbacks who may be out for this game. In two games against a healthy Mike Vrabel defense last year, Watson finished with 310/2 in the first meeting and then 210/2 in the second one. He also rushed for 114 yards and a touchdown between the two games, highlighting he has no problem with the scheme. Opposing quarterbacks have averaged 38.0 pass attempts per game, which ranks as the third highest mark in the league. The 7.27 yards per attempt is right around the league average, but that's before the injuries started piling up. Without Jackson in the lineup last week, we saw Derek Carr finish with 263/2 on just 34 attempts while playing without his starting running back and slot receiver. Watson has racked-up 18.9 or more fantasy points in five of the last six games with the only exception being the Ravens. You're not running from a team that's allowed multiple passing touchdowns in 8-of-13 games. Watson remains in lineups as a stable QB1.

Deshaun Watson scores two rushing TDs in Week 14 loss

Deshaun Watson was 28-for-50 for 292 yards with a touchdown pass and two interceptions while rushing six times 44 yards and two touchdowns as the Texans lost to the Broncos by a 38-24 score.

Fantasy Impact

Turnovers by Watson and the Texans did in the team on Sunday as they could not follow up their big game in Week 13 against the Patriots. Watson was still able to help fantasy owners with his touchdowns. on the ground and passing yards when the Texans were in comeback mode. The third-year QB could have a tough matchup against the Titans in Week 15 but should be started in most fantasy formats.
