Deshaun Watson’s Inconsistency is Tanking His, Hopkins’ and Fuller’s Fantasy Values

Deshaun Watson has been the ultimate fantasy roller coaster to begin 2019. Thus far, he’s either thrown 3 TDs and topped 25 FPs in two contests, or he’s been complete rubbish with 160 or fewer yards and zero scores. In the process, the normally-elite DeAndre Hopkins has been relatively useless (under 10 FPs in three straight), while Will Fuller has completely disappeared (WR65 on the year). 

So… what can fantasy owners expect moving forward? 

Well, the near-future looks promising. The Texans square off with the Falcons, Chiefs, Colts, and Raiders across their next four, which all bode positively for Watson and co. If I was in “Win Now” mode, I’d try to throw some “Buy Low” feelers out on Watson and Hopkins.

However, come Week 9, the Texans have Jacksonville, who held Watson under 160 pass yards in Week 2, followed by a Bye and then daunting matchups in 5 of their last 7 (BAL, NE, DEN, TEN x 2).

As such, I wouldn’t be overly optimistic that the up-and-down Texans pass game finds some positive consistency. Sure, a talent like Hopkins makes sense if his owner is in rough shape… matchups usually mean a whole lot less for the unguardable.

But he’ll need a QB who can deliver the mail. Right now, Watson can’t be counted on, making Fuller a bench-until-told-otherwise, Hopkins a little less shiny, and Watson a matchup-based play.
