Deshaun Watson was the starting quarterback for the Houston Texans in six games last season.

During those six games, he was by far the best quarterback in fantasy football, putting up numbers that would have challenged for fantasy MVP. However, in early November, he tore his right ACL in practice and was shut Baseball Jerseys Custom down for the season.

So, as we start preparing for the upcoming NFL and (more importantly) fantasy football season, the obvious question is: How good do we expect Watson to be this season?

For me, the answer is easy: Watson is the No. 1 quarterback prospect in this year’s draft. Period.

In standard scoring fantasy leagues, Watson’s last five games as a starter were good for 28.3 fantasy points per game (FP/G). To put that in perspective, here are the per-game fantasy scoring averages for the top five scoring quarterbacks last season:

Yes, a sample size of five games for a rookie quarterback is small. Vanishingly small, even. But in those five games, he lapped the field as far as production goes. Watson’s 28.3 FP/G had a bigger gap over the first-place Wilson and Wentz than Wilson and Wentz had over the 18th-place Jameis Winston (15.5 FP/G).

If Davenport doesn’t make a significant leap this season, Houston might have to spend its 2019 first-round pick on a left tackle to replace him. How he fared as a rookie won’t cut it moving forward.

The jump from the Patriot League to the NFL is Cheap Authentic Hockey Jerseys significant, but with a quarterback on the mend heading into 2018, there isn’t much room for error.

While Northern Iowa did recently produce an all-world skill player in David Johnson, it’s rare for FCS programs to pump out NFL talent. The jump from playing low-level Division I teams to NFL squads on a weekly basis chews up and spits out plenty of former college stars.

Behind veteran receivers T.Y. Hilton, Ryan Grant and Chester Rogers, the Colts’ biggest hope at the position is fifth-round pick Daurice Fountain, who had a breakout 943 receiving yards, 12 receiving touchdowns at Northern Iowa as a senior. After Hilton, there’s no proven option, meaning there’s plenty of opportunity.
