Week 8 Projections
After annihilating the competition to the tune of 20.5 sacks and the number one overall finish among IDPs in 2012, Watt backslid in 2013, managing a measly 12.5 sacks. The bum. What a slacker. Kidding aside, Watt has also notched at least 80 tackles in each of the past two seasons, a staggering number for a 3-4 end. The arrival of Romeo Crennel's stone-age 1-gap scheme is cause for some concern, but you have to think Crennel has enough sense not to ruin the NFL's best pass-rusher. The Gap between Watt and No. 2 isn't as big as it was last year, but there still isn't a defensive lineman we'd draft ahead of him.
