Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
Coming off what's arguably his worst performance of the season (169 passing yards, zero touchdowns, one pick, one fumble and sacked six times by the Baltimore Ravens), the must-start Watson (ankle) should rebound Thursday night against the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts specialize in limiting big plays in the passing game, allowing the 10th-fewest passing yards and the 13th-fewest touchdown tosses. Watson has thrown for at least 267 yards and one touchdown in each of his last three starts versus Indianapolis. While Watson also has rushed for at least 32 yards in all three outings, we have to wonder how effective he'll be as a runner on a short week. Watson suffered a very bad ankle sprain against the Baltimore Ravens last week but was expected to suit up.
Passing: 236 Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 34 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Battling through lingering injuries that included a collapsed lung and a sore throwing shoulder, and carrying an often undermanned offense, Watson still manufactured an impressive record-setting sophomore breakout as the fantasy QB4 this past season. The dual-threat signal caller became the first quarterback in NFL history to compile at least 4,000 passing yards, 25 touchdown passes, 500 rushing yards and five rushing scores in a single campaign. Watson's insane 9.3 percent touchdown rate from 2017 dropped, as expected, to a more sustainable 5.3 percent. He was forced to play pitch and catch with go-to guy DeAndre Hopkins frequently because of receiver corps injuries. Will Fuller missed nine games due to a torn ACL, and the promising Keke Coutee was in and out of the lineup (10 contests missed) due to hamstring issues. The Texans triggerman still improved his completion rate from 61.8 to 68.3 percent while staying effective as a runner. Watson's carries, rushing yards and rushing touchdown stats all ranked in the top four at the position, too. Unlike last offseason, Watson returns healthy. Houston also overhauled an offensive line that hemorrhaged a league-high 62 sacks, which can only help. If the Texans' "Big Three" wideout trio of Hopkins, Fuller and Coutee remains reasonably healthy, Watson has career-year upside with his arm. Think about it: Watson can rack up rushing stats that rival Cam Newton's production, and, unlike Newton, amass top-10 passing numbers, too. Keep in mind that the supremely mobile Watson's playing style makes him more susceptible to injuries than the other top-rated fantasy quarterbacks.

Passing: 1476 Yards, 12 TD, 4 INT.
Rushing: 195 Yards, 2 TD.
