J.J. Watt Won't Demand Contract Extension

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, who has two years left on his current deal with no guaranteed money left, said he won't ask for a contract extension and doesn't think it's necessary. Watt prefers to prove his worth on the field after playing in just eight regular season games last year because of a torn pectoral muscle. The five-time Pro Bowler and five-time first-team All-Pro pass-rusher has played in just 32 regular season games in the last four years due to injuries, but we already know he is a game-wrecker when he's healthy. Watt remains a top-10 fantasy defensive lineman in IDP leagues, but his injury history and age (31) make him more of a boom/bust pick every year.

Texans Feel Good About Will Fuller V

Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller V has struggled to stay healthy during his NFL career, but head coach Bill O'Brien says that "Fuller is doing great" after dealing with hamstring and groin issues last season. Having Fuller back and healthy is good news for the Texans, who need his field-stretching ability to help run O'Brien's preferred offensive system. A healthy Fuller could be a high-end fantasy WR2 now that DeAndre Hopkins is gone, but there's still so much uncertainty surrounding him, even if the team is optimistic about his ability to stay on the field in 2020.

2020 Could Be Will Fuller's Final Season In Houston

Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller V is entering his fifth year in the NFL and is currently playing out the final year of his contract with the Texans. The dangerous speed threat is a force when he's on the field, but all four of his previous seasons have featured missed games due to injury, with Fuller playing in 42 of a possible 64 games during his career. For this reason and because of concerns about his cost when he hits free agency, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic believes this could be the final year for Fuller in a Texans uniform. If healthy, he should be a great option for fantasy owners as a WR2 with DeAndre Hopkins no longer in town, though there's always significant injury risk when it comes to Fuller.

Texans Not Picking Up Gareon Conley's Option

The Houston Texans have decided not to pick up cornerback Gareon Conley's fifth-year option for the 2021 season, according to a league source not authorized to speak publicly. His fifth-year option would have been for $10.244 million. Despite the decision, the Texans were pleased with Conley's play down the stretch last year and like how he fits into their locker room. The Raiders gave up on him in 2019 after he was the 24th overall pick in the 2017 draft. Conley had 27 tackles (20 solo) and 11 passes defensed for Houston in eight games (six starts) to close out the 2019 season. He should be a starter next year but must improve his play if he wants to play in Houston beyond the 2020 season.

Texans Expected To Exercise Deshaun Watson's Option

The Houston Texans are expected to exercise quarterback Deshaun Watson's fifth-year club option for the 2021 season before the May 4 deadline, according to sources. It's just a procedural formality, though, because the Texans fully intend on negotiating a long-term deal with the Pro Bowl signal-caller. Watson's fifth-year option is projected to cost $17.3 million in 2021. He finished as fantasy's No. 5 quarterback in 2019 by throwing for 3,852 yards, 26 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Watson is also valuable as a high-end QB1 because of his rushing ability, as he ran the ball 82 times for 413 rushing yards and an additional seven touchdowns. Losing his top wideout in DeAndre Hopkins makes him a little bit more risky, but he still has plenty of weapons in the passing game.
