Dynasty/Keeper Outlook

After seeing his rookie season cut short by a torn ACL, by all accounts Watson should be a full go when training camp opens, avoiding the PUP list. He's reportedly been practicing without a brace already and his signature mobility appears intact. Despite being a first round pick, the Texans chose not to give Watson a chance to win the starter's job in camp last offseason, but with Tom Savage predictably imploding, Watson took over under center halfway through Week 1 and never looked back. Through just six and a half NFL games Watson tossed 19 touchdown passes and threw for nearly 1700 yards, adding 269 rushing yards and a pair of scores on the ground as well. In Weeks 2 through 7 (his first six NFL starts) Watson was a top five fantasy performer on average before sustaining his injury so it's easy to see why the offseason buzz has been plentiful for the second year pro. He'll need to cut down on the turnovers going forward, as he threw 8 picks as a rookie and put the ball on the ground 3 times. But the sky really is the limit here, and Watson is being drafted as such in all formats.

2018 Season Outlook

After his short but impressive rookie campaign, Watson is being selected as a top five fantasy quarterback in nearly all formats. It's a steep price to pay, but not unreasonable given his early success. We've seen first hand that the upside is real, but he's clearly not as safe as some of the quarterbacks going around him in drafts.
