Rank Among Leaders
|J.J. Watt locked up through 2015 |
|by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(4/18/14) The Texans have exercised their option to keep defensive end J.J. Watt on the roster through the 2015 season. The Houston Chronicle believes that Watt won't even play under the terms of that fifth year (roughly $10.6 million guaranteed) because the Texans will agree to a long-term extension with him before then.

|J.J. Watt to give it all he's got |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|

|Texans list many defenders among Sunday probables |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(12/20/13) The Texans boast a boatload of defensive players on their Friday injury report, but nearly all of them are probable for the Week 16 game against Denver.
The probables are defensive backs D.J. Swearinger (foot), Josh Victorian (back) and Johnathan Joseph (groin), linebackers Justin Tuggle (elbow) and Joe Mays (knee) and linemen Antonio Smith (knee) and J.J. Watt (hand).
|J.J. Watt is the Calvin Johnson of Fantasy defensive linemen. At least he was last year, owning 81.5 more Fantasy points than the second-highest point getter at the position in leagues that reward tackles. That's in big part to the 20.5 sacks he had to lead the league, a rarity among 3-4 defensive linemen. He also had 81 total tackles and 16 passes defensed with four forced fumbles. Although impressive, it does not mean he'll do it again in 2013. But he'd still be a productive lineman if he had half as many sacks and passes defensed. Because he's among the best IDP in Fantasy, you can count on him getting taken with an early to mid-round pick as a No. 1 DL. (Updated 4/26/13) |
