Texans | J.J. Watt cleared, ready for OTAs

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 06:54:06 -0800

Updating an earlier report, Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) said he has been cleared for football activities, and he'll be ready for organized team activities. He said he'd probably have a separate program, though, to be on the safe side.

Fantasy Tip: Watt had two back surgeries and another one on his groin in 2016. He was the top DL option in fantasy heading into last year, but Khalil Mack bridged the gap. If Mack is eligible at DL next season, he and Watt could be interchangeable atop the position heading into drafts.

Texans | J.J. Watt doing well

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 06:05:33 -0800

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) said his rehab from back surgery is going well.

Fantasy Tip: Watt underwent two back surgeries and a groin operation in 2016, and the back operations cast some doubt on whether he'll be able to return to his elite level. He was, hands down, the best defensive lineman in fantasy before the latest injury. If Khalil Mack is eligible at DL, he could be that guy this year. However, Watt is still an elite option with a big caution flag.
