2018 Fantasy Outlook
Last year's first round pick (30th overall) lived up to all expectations, with 54 tackles, seven sacks, an interception and a forced fumble in 15 games. The continued absence of Ryan Shazier could allow opponents to double-team Watt, but there is nothing to suggest he cannot build on his successful rookie season, making his an obvious IDP option.

September 9, 2018
Watt had a team-high 11 tackles (eight solo), including four sacks, and blocked a potential game-winning field goal in Sunday's 21-21 tie against the Browns.
ANALYSIS
Watt showed no signs of having missed time in the preseason, and his monster effort offset a sloppy offensive showing that included six turnovers, and he helped to salvage the tie when he blocked Zane Gonzalez's 43-yard field goal attempt with 1:44 remaining to play.
