2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Houston fans and fantasy owners alike haven't had a reason to get excited over a Texans quarterback since they were named an expansion franchise back in 2002. Watson oozes potential as a runner and passer but it won't come without some growing pains. He threw 17 interceptions in his final season at Clemson and more than a few talent evaluators have described him as a player that tries to do "too much" on a given play. That might not be a bad thing considering Watson's ability to extend plays, gain yards on the ground and DeAndre Hopkins' freakish ability to turn bad passes into touchdowns. The Texans simply need more from their quarterback, which is why they selected him with the 12th pick in the 2017 draft. Houston isn't expected to use a funky two-quarterback system so fantasy owners shouldn't expect to see the him until the second half of the season.

That doesn't mean he can't be valuable in redraft leagues. In the six games between Week 9 and Week 14, the Texans have four favorable matchups for fantasy quarterbacks (IND, @BAL, @TEN, SF). Consequently, Watson may be worth the gamble for those owners needing more from their quarterback position as they push for the playoffs.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury DeAndre Hopkins expected to play
Missed practice all week with toe injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 15, 4:00 pm

Houston Texans
Two of the Texans' best players weren't at practice Friday during the portion open to reporters. Texans Pro Bowl wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins hasn't practiced all week due to a toe injury. He has 11 touchdown catches to lead the NFL. Clowney has a knee injury and an illness. He has nine sacks and 20 tackles for losses. Texans coach Bill O'Brien said he expects both players to play Sunday. (Houston Chronicle)

FFToday's Take: It's worrisome that Hopkins missed practice all week but it sounds like he will be ready to go on Sunday. He faces a difficult matchup against the Jags secondary but Hopkins did manage 7-55-1 on 16 targets back in Week 1 with Tom Savage / Deshaun Watson under center.

Injury DeShaun Watson undergoes surgery
No additional damage found
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 8, 11:00 am

Houston Texans
Doctors did not find any additional damage in the knee of Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson while they performed ACL surgery Wednesday morning in Houston, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. (

FFToday's Take: With the surgery complete, Watson will begin his recovery to get back onto the field for 2018 season. In the meantime, Houston will continue to deploy Tom Savage as their quarterback. The 2014 fourth-round draft pick threw for 219 yards and one touchdown in Week 9's loss to the Colts.

Injury Deshaun Watson reportedly tears ACL
Team awaiting results of MRI

Houston Texans
Sources: Texans QB fear Deshaun Watson suffered a torn ACL in practice today. A non-contact injury. MRI coming to confirm. ( - Ian Rapoport)

FFToday's Take: Absolutely awful and stunning news for the Texans, who had become the league's highest-scoring team since Watson took over for good in Week 2. If Watson is in fact done for the season, Tom Savage will lead the offense the rest of the way, and the fantasy values of DeAndre Hopkins along with Will Fuller will take a sizable hit as a result. Per the Houston Chronicle, Houston will sign Matt McGloin to back up Savage.
