The Colts are 18th against fantasy quarterbacks, Watson should be a solid QB1 on the road this week.Denver is 3rd against fantasy quarterbacks, but Mahomes is still an elite QB1 option.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Let's not rush to conclusions just yet, but Watson is at least starting a conversation to be the most bulletproof fantasy quarterback instead of Patrick Mahomes. He's been lights out this season, and you aren't thinking twice about starting him.Mahomes is starting to look a little bit human, but it says a lot about our expectations when that statement follows a 273 yard, three touchdown performance. If you have him, you're using him.
