Deshaun Watson in top-20 for fantasy points

SEATTLE, WA - OCTOBER 29: Quarterback Deshaun Watson
SEATTLE, WA - OCTOBER 29: Quarterback Deshaun Watson /

Houston Texans’ quarterback Deshaun Watson could be a fantasy football monster for the next several years.

I was one of the lucky people that added Houston Texans’ rookie phenom Deshaun Watson to my fantasy football team right before he really exploded this season.

It was one of the best moves I had ever made in fantasy football. In the league that I play in, he was easily putting up over 35 points each and every week. It was a huge help for my team due to the fact that I lost players like Charles Clay, Greg Olsen and Odell Beckham Jr. to injuries.

Well, then of course Watson himself ended up getting injured. It would have been remarkable to see how many fantasy points he would have scored this season if he didn’t get injured.

What’s really amazing is that it’s only been four weeks since Watson went down and he’s still in the top-20 in fantasy points in most leagues.

In the Yahoo! Sports league that I play in, Watson is currently ranked 18th in points with 230.36.

Texans Wire pointed out that Watson is ranked 16th overall in standard scoring, according to Fantasy Data. And if you go by ESPN’s PPR scoring format, he’s 19th overall. I can’t imagine that he’s not in the top-20 in almost every other league.

Quarterbacks don’t typcically get drafted very high in fantasy football, but it would be a surprise if Watson doesn’t end up being taken in the first round next year due to his big play ability through the air and on the ground.

Comment below and tell us what round you think Watson will be drafted in next year.
