As the 2019 fantasy football season nears, it's time to examine players who could make or break your fantasy team. Here's a look at Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson and his fantasy outlook for the season ahead.
Watson ranks third among QBs in rushing yards over his two seasons even though he started just six games as a rookie. Despite a predictable fall in passing-TD rate from the 9.3 percent of his debut, Watson kept his yards per attempt among the league’s top 6 and jumped to seventh in completion rate. Getting Will Fuller back from an October ACL tear can only help. And a healthier season from flashy slot man Keke Coutee could give Houston one of the league’s best receiver corps.

Watson combines elite rushing production with ascending passing. He has the best chance of unseating Mahomes atop the QB rankings.
