Fantasy Analysis
Season Projections
The dual-threat gunslinger didn't miss a start for the second straight season (he sat out a meaningless Week 17 contest) on the way to wrapping up 2019 as the fantasy QB5. While Watson matched his career high in touchdown passes (1.9 per game), his passing yardage slipped a bit (256.8 yards per contest). After absorbing a league-worst 62 sacks in 2018, Watson took 44 sacks. It was the sixth-most quarterback takedowns but definitely an improvement. As usual, the athletic Watson compensated for his occasionally pedestrian passing stats with impressive production as a runner. Watson's carries, rushing yards and rushing scores all ranked in the top four at the position for the second year in a row, as he has averaged 72-411-4.7 rushing per season. Heading into his age-24/25 campaign, Watson clearly has emerged as one of the top options at the position and has a nice chance to rack up his third straight top-five fantasy campaign despite the loss of DeAndre Hopkins (Cardinals). Brandin Cooks is capable of operating as a lead wideout - when healthy - and the trio of Will Fuller (core muscle surgery), Kenny Stills, Randall Cobb and red-zone target Darren Fells should be enough to prevent a huge slide in Watson's passing production. Keep in mind that the supremely mobile Watson's playing style makes him more susceptible to injuries than the other top-rated fantasy quarterbacks. Cooks and Fuller are both injury prone, which adds extra risk to drafting Watson. Losing both Cooks and Fuller to long-term injuries would cripple Watson's passing production.

Passing: 3922 Yards, 25 TD, 11 INT.
Rushing: 559 Yards, 8 TD.
