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.

J.J. Watt Could Be Used More Against Chiefs

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt (pectoral) played just 16 of 36 defensive snaps in the first half of the wild-card win over the Bills, but he saw 34 of 44 snaps in the second half. Houston's pass rush came to life in the second half, and Watt had a big sack of quarterback Josh Allen to force a field goal. Watt was surprised how well his body held up after the game after missing two months of the regular season. Getting more out of the All-Pro pass-rusher for an entire game against Kansas City would be huge for the Texans chances of springing the road upset. A healthier Watt is bad news for the entire Chiefs offense, especially quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

J.J. Watt Will Play Against Bills

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said that defensive end J.J. Watt (pectoral) will play against the Bills in the wild-card game on Saturday and "be in there quite a bit." Watt hasn't played since Oct. 27, however, so it's fair to wonder how effective he'll be after such a long layoff. But the Texans figure to throw him out there often if he's healthy enough, as he's a difference-maker rushing the passer for this Texans Defense when he's on the field. Watt's presence on the defensive line is a downgrade to Buffalo's entire offense on the road, while he also makes the Texans defense more attractive for those looking for a sleeper unit on the defensive side of the ball.
