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.He's coming off back-to-back brutal matchups against the Bills and Bears, though he was able to post rock-solid fantasy numbers (17.4-plus) in each of them. It surely helps that he threw the ball 49 times in each of those games, but that's seemingly a regular thing with him nowadays, as he's thrown 46-plus passes in four of the last five games. The Rams defense presents another tough matchup for him, as they're coming off a game where they held Russell Wilson touchdown-less for the first time in a calendar year. There are just three quarterbacks who've averaged more than 7.36 yards per attempt against the Rams all year, and two of them were prior to acquiring Jalen Ramsey. This is a must-win game for both teams, as both are vying for a playoff spot, and it should bring the best out of them. Outside of getting embarrassed by Lamar Jackson (who hasn't?) for five touchdowns in Week 12, the Rams have allowed just three passing touchdowns since Week 5. That's a span of seven games, which is rather impressive. The 61.8 percent completion-rate ranks 7th-best, 6.70 yards per attempt ranks 5th-best, and 3.84 percent touchdown-rate ranks 10th-best. Prescott also reportedly suffered a sprained left hand and injury to his right index finger against the Bears, adding another level of uncertainty. He's more of a high-end QB2 this week than the must-start QB1 he typically is.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Titans are 16th against fantasy quarterbacks this season, Watson should bounce back from a bad Broncos loss to be a QB1 on the road.The Rams are 10th against fantasy quarterbacks and even though Dallas is plummeting, it is not because QB Dak Prescott cannot put up fantasy numbers. Prescott should be a low-end Q1 at home this week.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
 Dak has been one of the most consistent QB options for fantasy this season, but he faces a Rams defense that has been playing better as of late. Excluding Lamar Jackson, the Rams have not given up a 20-point performance to a QB since Week 8. Because of their improved defensive play, Dak is closer to the bottom of the QB1 radar this week.
