Fantasy Football: 3 must-start Houston Texans for Week 3
3. Deshaun Watson
The quarterback for the Houston Texans might not be having the most productive season passing the football, and he might have been sacked seven times through the first two games of the season, but he’s still a viable option to play for fantasy football in Week 3.
That reason is that Watson has the ability to rush the football with the best of the best in the NFL. Since the Giants have had issues stopping the run thus far this season, it makes sense for the Texans to let loose on their play calling and see what Watson can do on the run. Lets be honest as well, with the pass protection of the Texans, Watson will most likely be racing out of the pocket anyway.
Watson still has the abilities to pass the football to in this game if give the proper time as Will Fuller and DeAndre Hopkins are available to throw the football too, and both are coming off 100-yard receiving games.
Keep an eye on Watson this week as he’s capable of out-producing the two previous quarterbacks the Giants have faced this season in Blake Bortles of the Jaguars and Dak Prescott of the Cowboys who have put up some nice numbers against the Giants this season.
