Nakia Watson

Running BackRB
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Watson really came into his own during his second season as a Cougar, as he took the reins as the team’s featured back. Through 13 games, he rushed for 769 yards and nine touchdowns with 295 receiving yards and four touchdowns through the air. He’s back for a fifth year of eligibility and will act as one of the team’s primary offensive engines as the Cougars play for relevance in the Pac-12. Read Past Outlooks
Posts decent total in win
November 21, 2023
Watson totaled eight carries for 47 yards and caught their only target for 23 yards and one touchdown during Friday's 56-14 win over Colorado.
ANALYSIS
Watson's numbers failed to meet expectations this season, and the new pass-happy offense was to blame. Through 11 games he's been able to combine rushing and receiving totals for 481 yards and seven touchdowns, but that's a huge regression from his junior totals.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
While Watson checked in as the primary spell back for the Badgers in 2019 behind Jonathan Taylor, it amounted to just 74 carries for 331 yards and two touchdowns. A big back at 5-foot-11, 229 pounds, Watson doesn’t possess the home run speed of Taylor and needs to work to break more arm tackles. Watson will also need to fend off attempts to take reps from him by a variety of hosts including Isaac Guerendo, Julius Davis and incoming freshman Jalen Berger. Garrett Groshek also figures to handle a chunk of snaps as the passing down back and occasional work in the run game.
