Deshaun Watson's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Based on our latest projection, you can expect Deshaun Watson to be an elite fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 368 projected fantasy points puts him at #2 behind Patrick Mahomes and ahead of Aaron Rodgers. He has averaged 23.98 fantasy points in his past 16 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 23 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite quarterback. He is projected to live up to these high expectations. Deshaun Watson is expected to slightly improve on last season's #4 fantasy position rank.
