T.J. Watt's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND 2019 FANTASY PROJECTION

T.J. Watt was the #180 ranked fantasy player this season and the #26 LB. His elite ranking drops slightly if you base things on average fantasy points where he is the #28 LB. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 6 games he averaged 8.1 fantasy points which was higher than his start (6.6 FP) and his ending average (4.9 FP). He is young, so his late season drop-off should not be an indicator of an overall downward trend heading into next season. Using standard deviation as an indicator of consistency, Watt is relatively inconsistent capable of very high highs and equally low lows. Our projected ceiling for Watt when he 'goes off' is 20 fantasy points (his average is 6.6FPs). T.J. Watt (2019 Season Projection: 50 Solo, 17 Ast, 11.3 Sacks, 0.6 Fumrec, 5.5 PDs) is projected to take a slight step downward in the upcoming fantasy season. His rank based on total projected fantasy points has him as the #33 player at his position.
