J.J. Watt Could Return For Playoffs

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt (pectoral) could return from Injured Reserve this season, according to sources. There is optimism that he can return for the playoffs just three months after tearing his pectoral muscle. Watt had four sacks and 20 quarterback hits in eight games before his injury, so getting him back for a playoff run would obviously be massive for the Texans. He'd also be back in play in any IDP leagues that run that late into the season. Watt will have another MRI exam in a few weeks to gauge his progress, so we'll have a better idea then on whether he will be back.

J.J. Watt Not Thinking About Retirement

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is hoping that his two missed seasons due to injury will prolong his career and he's not thinking about retirement at all. "I dont want to leave the game anytime soon I wouldnt trade it for anything else in the world," Watt said. The 30-year-old played in a combined eight games from 2016-17, but he responded by bouncing back for 61 tackles, 16 sacks and seven forced fumbles over a full season in 2018. While Watt may never hit the 20-sack mark ever again, he's still wildly effective as a pass rusher if he can stay on the field. You'll have to account for injury risk if you consider drafting him early in IDP formats.

J.J. Watt Undergoes Knee Cleanup

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt (knee) underwent a minor knee cleanup procedure right after the season, according to a source. Watt is fine for now, and the procedure was just a little maintenance for an injury that bothered him during the season. After playing in only eight games in 2016 and 2017 due to injuries, the pass-rusher was able to play a full season in 2018 and had a healthy 16 sacks and 61 tackles as the heart and soul of the Houston defense. He remains an injury risk in IDP leagues as one of the first defensive players off the board, but he's usually worth it when he's on the field.
