Texans | J.J. Watt dedicated in offseason

Fri, 30 Jan 2015 09:43:27 -0800

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt recently bought a log cabin in the "middle of nowhere" in Wisconsin in order to have a place to train in the offseason without any distractions. "It's really minimalistic," Watt said. "The only thing I have to focus on is training and that's the way I like it. There's no frills, there's nothing to distract you up here." He plans to build a gym in the cabin, and his offseason getaway will be similar to what he did last year when he devoted himself to daily improvement.

Texans | J.J. Watt scores another touchdown

Sun, 30 Nov 2014 14:01:30 -0800

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt posted his third touchdown reception of the season in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans. He added two sacks while adding a forced fumble and recovery, too. He is the first player with at least three offensive touchdowns and two defensive touchdowns in a season since Joe Golding of the 1948 Boston Yanks.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy commissioners are going to get protests from their league members next season to be able to use Watt as a tight end in 2015. For FantasyScore, it's unlikely he will be available on a week-to-week basis on offense, but Watt does have more touchdown receptions than more heralded fantasy options like San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen, New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston, San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis, Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson, and Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker, just to name a few.
