Deshaun Watson's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND PLAY OR FADE ADVICE

He is projected for 25.4 FanDuel points and 27.6 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is worth +$1393 more than $8.3K on FanDuel and +$1483 more than $7.1K on DraftKings. There may be other options (see below) who are even better values, but barring a significant lineup change consider him a strong daily fantasy play. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Deshaun Watson to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 216 projected fantasy points puts him at #6 behind Lamar Jackson and ahead of Aaron Rodgers. He has averaged 25.11 fantasy points in his past 38 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 24 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#7) is worse than 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 be very good, but not one of the very best at his position. Deshaun Watson is expected to come up slightly short of this season-to-date's #4 fantasy position rank.

DESHAUN WATSON PROJECTED TO FINISH AHEAD OF JUSTIN HERBERT IN WEEK 9

Deshaun Watson is projected for 28.7 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #3 ranked quarterback and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Justin Herbert but behind Patrick Mahomes. Week 10 will not be as good based on projected rank (#8). He is projected for 24.2 fantasy points.
