FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Deshaun Watson has been throwing with Texans' teammates

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson has been working out with wide receivers Brandin Cooks, Randall Cobb, Keke Coutee, and second-year tight end Kahale Warring during the pandemic.

What It Means:

The Texans' virtual offseason program ends Thursday, but Watson will continue throwing with his teammates. Will Fuller's absence may indicate that he still hasn't been cleared from offseason core-muscle surgery. The offense figures to have a much different feel this season without DeAndre Hopkins lining up wide, but Watson is still expected to finish among the top fantasy quarterbacks. He has thrown for at least 3,800 yards and rushed for at least 400 more each of the last two seasons while totaling 52 passing touchdowns and 12 rushing scores. Last year, Watson's 67.3 completion percentage was sixth-highest in the league and his 5.3 touchdown percentage ranked ninth-best. He also had the eighth-highest average depth of target (8.9 yards) among quarterbacks with at least 100 attempts.

Watson is the fifth-highest ranked player overall in numberFire's fantasy rankings. Our models project him for 4,111.0 yards, 28.1 touchdowns, and 12.8 interceptions with another 430.7 rushing yards and 4.2 scores on the ground.
