September 8, 2018
The 49ers placed Watson (hamstring) on injured reserve Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Watson suffered a hamstring injury earlier this week, which was apparently significant enough to land the 30-year-old on IR. The reserve linebacker had landed on the PUP list earlier in training camp due to a strained calf muscle, and it remains unclear whether his current injury is related. With Watson out, Cassius Marsh figures to see an uptick in snaps.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2015

2013
2012
2010
Watson recorded 14 tackles in 10 games last season between his stints with the Cowboys and Jags.
Signed in March, Watson will compete for a starting outside linebacker job.The 26-year-old recorded a career-high 42 tackles and 2.0 sacks for the Bucs last season.
Watson will most likely start at OLB for the Bucs after being a backup his first three seasons in the league.
Young and athletic backup LB who should stick with the Bucs in a similar role in 2012.
Watson, a 7th-round draft pick of the Buccaneers in 2010, was expected to go in the third or fourth round range. Watson's excellent athleticism makes him a good fit for Tampa's style of defense. Keep an eye on him as an IDP sleeper if Quincy Black or Geno Hayes miss any time in 2010.
