2019 Fantasy Outlook
Watt's sophomore season was even better than his rookie campaign. He was among the top-10 in sacks in the league, finishing with a team-high 13 in the category. Watt also forced six fumbles, second only to Dee Ford and brother J.J. with seven each. Only 24 years old to start the 2019 season Watt, who logged 68 tackles in 2018, is an elite athlete, who remains firmly on the IDP radar. Read Past Outlooks

September 15, 2019
Watt totaled six tackles (three solo) including a sack in Pittsburgh's 28-26 loss to Seattle on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
The sack was the first for Watt this season as he looks to build off his 13-sack performance in 2018. He also forced a fumble that was recovered by Mark Barron to setup Pittsburgh's first touchdown, but he and the Pittsburgh defense face a difficult challenge in Week 3 against a San Francisco offense averaging 36 points per game.

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.
