Deshaun Watson May Struggle Against Ravens

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson faces a tough Week 2 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. Watson -- who had one of his worst games of 2019 against this team, when he had just 169 passing yards -- is still a must-start option in season-long formats because of his tremendous upside, but he has a pretty low floor this week. The Ravens proved in Week 1 that their 2020 defense was just as scary as their 2019 defense, holding Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield to 189 yards and picking him off. This is a week where you likely don't want to put Deshaun Watson in a DFS lineup.

Garbage Time Helps Deshaun Watson Salvage Week 1

For much of Thursday's season-opening loss, it looked like Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson was on his way to a really rough day. But with a touchdown pass and run in the fourth quarter, Watson emerged from Houston's 34-20 loss with some solid numbers. He finished with 253 passing yards on 20-for-32 passing with a touchdown and an interception. He added six carries for 27 yards and a score, mostly avoiding the run game until late. It was not an encouraging game. Watson is still a fantasy QB1 and still is one of the highest-upside plays at the position, but we'd be lying if we said Thursday's game wasn't at least a little worrisome, mostly because it exposed the issues the team has at wide receiver.

Deshaun Watson Is Solid Week 1 Start

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson doesn't have the easiest matchup on Thursday night when he faces the Kansas City Chiefs, but he remains a solid starting option. Watson, who just signed an extension with Houston, will be operating without his former top receiver, DeAndre Hopkins, this year, but the Texans have put a vertical passing offense around him that should play to his strengths. He might not challenge to be the week's overall QB1 this time around, but his upside as a passer and runner make him a must-start option in a high-profile Thursday night clash. Sure, there's more uncertainty around Watson than usual, but he did have 388 passing yards the last time he faced Kansas City.
