Texans | J.J. Watt should be ready for 2017

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 10:23:56 -0700

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) likely will not be able to play again in 2016, but the Texans believe he will be ready for the 2017 season. The team does not have any long-term concerns about Watt's injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners in IDP leagues will need to keep an eye on Watt's recovery over the next several months to see if suffers any setbacks. He will be a risky option for owners moving forward but should still be one of the better players in IDP leagues.

Texans | J.J. Watt to IR

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 08:03:21 -0700

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Watt is one of the best players in IDP leagues, but it's unlikely to have the amount of bench spots where you can comfortably sit him out for the off chance he returns late in the season. If you do have space, stash him in hopes of the unlikely. However, reports are his season is likely over.

Texans | J.J. Watt will be placed on IR

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 21:47:29 -0700

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) will be placed on Injured Reserve Wednesday, Sept. 28, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Although he would be eligible to return Nov. 27, sources indicate Watt is "probably" done for the season.

Fantasy Tip: Watt was likely the No. 1 DT taken in most IDP leagues, so his loss will be felt. Look for Jadeveon Clowney to see an increased role moving forward.

Texans | J.J. Watt expected to go on IR

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 18:28:46 -0700

Updating a previous post, Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) will likely be placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Sept. 28. There was no word on whether the IR will be season-ending, although Watt could miss the rest of the year.

Fantasy Tip: As a previous post said, Watt is an elite IDP and this will greatly hurt the Texans defense. Jadeveon Clowney may be a very popular waiver-wire pickup this week.

Texans | J.J. Watt could be out for season

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 17:53:00 -0700

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) has re-injured his back and is expected to be sidelined for an extended period of time, perhaps for the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Watt is an elite NFL player and an elite IDP option in fantasy leagues. The Texans will miss his presence, but perhaps it will open the door more for Jadeveon Clowney to get his career going. Clowney is worth a pickup in IDP leagues if he's available.

Texans | J.J. Watt contained again

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 05:50:14 -0700

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt was held to two tackles and no sacks Thursday, Sept. 22, in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: He had 1.5 sacks last week, but he had two clunkers in Week 1 and last night. He should only get stronger as the season progresses and remains an elite DL option in IDP leagues.
