Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson failed to pass for a touchdown for the first time all season in Sunday's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he did score once as a runner. Watson passed for 234 yards while completing 25 of his 35 passing attempts. He added 66 yards on 13 carries as the Texans asked the second-year passer to make use of his legs more than usual in the team's tune-up for the playoffs. Houston hosts the Colts to open the postseason. Watson has had some success against Indianapolis this year, passing for his second-most yards in a game against them in Week 4, though he wasn't as strong in the second game between the teams as the Colts defense has improved over the course of the year.
Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson threw for 339 yards and two touchdowns on 29-for-40 passing in Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Watson also added two rushing touchdowns, with his eight carries going for 49 yards. It was Watson's best game of the season from a fantasy perspective, and the second-year passer broke the 300-yard mark for the first time since Week 5. Houston ends their season against the Jacksonville Jaguars, whose defense has faltered at times this year but still presents a difficult test for Watson. Expect numbers closer to what he's been putting up on average, not a huge, explosive game like we saw in Week 16.
Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson threw for 294 yards and two touchdowns in Houston's Week 15 victory over the New York Jets. He was 22-for-28 throwing the football and also added 26 rushing yards on four carries. Watson was sacked six times. It was an uneven game for Houston, but Watson was efficient and put up solid fantasy numbers. Houston faces the Eagles in Week 16, who currently allow the ninth-most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. Watson should be a strong start for fantasy owners in a week where the majority of fantasy leagues are playing for a title.
