Dr. Roto Podcast - Wednesday, August 1
Outlook: The Texans had a plethora of injuries last season to big names like J.J. Watt, Deshaun Watson, and D’Onta Foreman which cost them dearly. However, If the Texans can stay healthy they have a real chance to compete for the playoffs. With the Jaguars and Titans being two of the top teams in the AFC and in the same division as the Texans, there is little margin for error.

QB: Last year was one of my best years in Fantasy Football, and I honestly think it might have been my greatest ever if Deshaun Watson had not gotten injured. Many of you may not remember but I was the FIRST expert who dropped Watson’s name prior to his Week 4 masterpiece against the Titans. For the next four weeks I enjoyed Watson’s amazing game play (including 16 TD passes!) while I reeled off victory after victory. When I heard that he injured his knee in practice, I was crestfallen. It just goes to show how much one player can affect your Fantasy fortunes. Admittedly, I have some trepidation when it comes to drafting Watson this season. I still love him and what he brings to the table, but I wonder whether his mobility will suffer and if he will lose those rushing yards that made him so valuable. Currently, Watson has been going as the 2nd or 3rd QB off the board in most leagues I have seen. I am not quite ready to pull the trigger so early at this point, but if I like what I see in training camp and preseason, I will re-evaluate and possibly consider taking him in the 6th or 7th round.
