Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Watson will play the Patriots this week, and they're giving up the fifth-fewest points per game to quarterbacks. That said, they have also given up the 13th-most rushing yards to the position, so Watson could take advantage of their vulnerabilities on the ground. I'm cautiously optimistic that he'll post QB1 numbers this week, but he's a lower-end start than normal, and I would avoid him in DFS. 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Prior to last week's poor-weather performance at Cleveland, Watson had been a top-9 play four weeks in a row. He'll look to get back on track in Week 11, but New England's defense has allowed the sixth fewest to opposing QBs on the season. Watson's talent obviously negates some effects of a difficult matchup, but he should be considered a back-end QB1 in this one. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Watson is quietly putting together a very solid campaign. Even without Deandre Hopkins, Watson has looked great and he's been a pretty consistent fantasy QB in recent weeks. With that being said, Watson has what some people might say is a scary matchup on paper against the Patriots defense. However, New England is among the worst in the NFL in terms of total Yards Per Pass Attempt Allowed with 8.2. The only team worse in the entire NFL is Jacksonville at 8.5 YPA. The Patriots can be passed on, which means that Watson and his receiving trio should be able to get enough done to view Watson as a mid-range QB1 yet again.All indications are that Dalton will be back for this matchup, which is a fairly favorable one for opposing QBs, but there's no way we can trust him in our fantasy lineups this week. He's a low-end QB2.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We can't take too much away from Watson's performance last week, as there were constant 30-plus MPH winds with 50-60 MPH gusts that limited both offenses. It would've been nice to see Watson use his legs a bit more, but it doesn't appear to be a big part of what he wants to do this year. He's rushed for more than 38 yards just once this year and hasn't topped 50 rushing yards since Week 17 of 2018. When you compare what quarterbacks have averaged in non-Patriots games to what they average versus the Patriots, they score 4.3 fewer fantasy points per game, which makes this the toughest matchup in the NFL. How is that when the Patriots have allowed 8.60 yards per attempt, which ranks as the second-highest number in the league? Well, because their opponents have averaged a league-low 57.8 plays per game and thrown the ball just 49.6 percent of the time, which is also a league-low. That's the only reason teams have not scored points, as the Patriots defense ranks as the second-worst in the NFL according to Fantasy Outsiders' DVOA metric. Since the start of Week 2, quarterbacks have averaged a ridiculous 8.91 yards per attempt. If the Texans actually have Watson drop back to pass, they'll have success. Knowing they're stuck with Duke Johnson at running back, they just might. Watson might be better than you expect this week, though it requires some rational coaching. He should be considered a mid-to-low-end QB1 this week.Now having missed two weeks with his concussion and having his bye week, Dalton should be back in the lineup against the Vikings. Through 10 weeks, the Vikings have allowed the third-most fantasy points per actual pass attempt (no rushing), which is important for a quarterback like Dalton who has very limited mobility. We know the Cowboys offense is built around the wide receivers, so it makes you feel a lot better about Dalton knowing wide receivers have caught more touchdowns against Minnesota than anyone else. Don't let Nick Foles' poor performance on Monday night make you think the Vikings have a good defense; they don't. There have already been five quarterbacks who've posted 20-plus fantasy points against them through nine games. They've allowed a 66.5 percent completion-rate (15th), 7.64 yards per attempt (8th-most), and a 5.79 percent touchdown-rate (7th-highest), so it's not a volume thing, though the massive 68.6 plays per game against them certainly doesn't hurt. The Cowboys have thrown the ball just 54.9 percent of the time over their last three games, but that would still amount to 38 dropbacks if the plays held up. Dalton is not a surefire streamer in 1QB leagues, but I'm confident playing him as a low-end QB2 in SuperFlex/2QB formats.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Patriots are 7th against fantasy quarterbacks, Watson is a low-end QB1 at home this week.
