Projections for the season ahead
As the 2020 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.
Losing DeAndre Hopkins has to hurt, but here are Watson’s numbers on balls to everyone else through three years: 66 percent completions, which would have ranked 10th in the league last year; 7.8 yards per pass attempt (13th); and 5.6 percent TD rate (eighth). His 2019 splits between Hopkins and others were basically even. Brandin Cooks replenishes the talent pool, and David Johnson is a receiving upgrade over Carlos Hyde.

Losing Hopkins might add some risk to Watson, but we’re still betting on a QB who has been stellar through 2.5 seasons in the NFL.
