Deshaun Watson Will Continue Working With Receivers

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, who has already been working out with wide receivers Brandin Cooks, Randall Cobb and Keke Coutee and tight end Kahale Warring, will continue to work out and throw to his receivers after the team's virtual offseason program ends on Thursday. Watson lost his No. 1 receiver in DeAndre Hopkins when he was traded to the Cardinals this offseason, but the Texans added Cobb in free agency and traded for Cooks. There's potential with Will Fuller V as the deep threat, but losing one of the best wideouts in the game will surely hurt Watson's overall production. But the 24-year-old's dual-threat ability and the fact that he might run more often in 2020 give him top-five upside at the QB position.

Will Fuller V Critical To Deshaun Watson's Success Downfield

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson enjoyed throwing the ball deep in 2019, attempting a deep pass on 14 percent of his throws last year, the fifth-highest mark among signal-callers. With receiver Will Fuller V on the field, Watson attempted a deep pass on 17 percent of his throws since 2017, as opposed to 11 percent with Fuller on the sidelines. The QB has completed 43.2 percent of his deep throws with Fuller on the field since 2017, as opposed to 34.3 percent without him. Watson had an average air-yards mark of 30 last season and only had Fuller for 11 games. But with All-Pro DeAndre Hopkins now in Arizona, many expect Watson's efficiency to fall. The good news is that he can still be a very solid QB1 because of his ability to scramble and make plays with his legs. But Watson's QB1 stock will take a hit without Hopkins picking up the slack.

Deshaun Watson Optimistic About Extension

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, a first-rounder in 2017, is under contract through 2021 after the Texans picked up his fifth-year option, but he expects to reach a long-term extension with the team that will keep him around for a while. He's not stressing about a timeline, but Watson is optimistic that something will get done in due time. The former Clemson star is already a two-time Pro Bowler and two-time AFC South champion, throwing for 10,586 yards, 75 touchdowns and 30 interceptions. His dual-threat abilities as a runner and passer make him a surefire QB1, but the loss of stud wideout DeAndre Hopkins this offseason has slightly lowered his ceiling in the fantasy realm. RotoBaller has Watson listed as the No. 6 fantasy QB target heading into the 2020 season.
