T.J. Watt Has Established Himself As A Top Linebacker

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt was ranked by Pro Football Focus as their best edge defender in 2019 among those with a minimum of 300 snaps. He was able to sack opposing quarterbacks on 3.2 percent of his pass rushes, which ranked fifth among edge defenders with a minimum of 300 pass rushes, per Next Gen Stats. Watt doesn't rack up a ridiculous amount of tackles like some linebackers, but he does have 34.5 sacks, 177 combined tackles, 36 tackles for loss, 70 QB hits, three interceptions, 18 passes defensed, 15 forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries in his three seasons in the NFL. His ability to get to the QB regularly and make plays all over the field will make him a highly coveted IDP linebacker on the rise.

T.J. Watt, Maurkice Pouncey Injured Sunday Night

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt (hip) and center Maurkice Pouncey (ankle) both left the game in the fourth quarter of the Week 1 loss to the Patriots on Sunday night and did not return. Watt had two tackles but also hit Tom Brady three times. Pouncey seemed OK after the game and expects to play in Week 2 against the Seahawks, but Watt wasn't seen in the locker room. Losing either Pro Bowl player would be a big loss for the Steelers. Pittsburgh's defense came in as a shaky fantasy unit, and their terrible performance against New England in Week 1 didn't change that at all.

TJ Watt Will Open Camp On PUP List

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker TJ Watt (hamstring tightness) will miss the team's first practice on Friday, after being placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list. The designation comes after Watt completed the team's conditioning test, but neither he or coach Mike Tomlin expressed any serious concern over the injury. He'll be re-evaluated in the coming days before joining the team back on the practice field. Watt is a vital part of the team's defense that should be improved over last season, so hopefully he can get back on the field soon without issue.
