In the late rounds of a 2-QB league draft having already drafted Carson Wentz and Philip Rivers I see Deshaun Watson on the board. Not knowing about the Texans quarterback situation because I mean really who cares at all, I take Deshaun Watson in the second-to-last round and figure to be a stash worst case. OH BOY did I hear it from the rest of the draft room.
Making it like I just drafted the second coming of Satan. I mean come on guys it’s the 14th round.
Tom Savage starting. Tom Savage STINKS. Deshaun comes in and leads to a touchdown drive to open the second half. There is hope.
And then Deshaun sucks just like an Texans QB ever.
Ok this is a legitimate quarterback. Maybe not a fantasy stud but a serviceable backup.
The man explodes. 5 total touchdowns. Over 300 yards. This is a starter and a good one at that.
Time to start this man for Philip “go take a shit in a” Rivers.
And you thought he couldn’t do better. 5 more touchdowns. No interceptions. We have the biggest steal of the year not named Kareem Hunt. This guy is a top 5 fantasy QB.
Ok he came back to earth a little bit. But 23 fantasy points, I’ll take that every week.
Bye Week. Perfect get this man some rest.
Watson against Seattle’s D. What do I do? Start the damn man and boy was it rewarded. Explosion #2. He’s back and better than ever. 400 yards. 4 touchdowns. 67 more on the ground. A 40 fantasy point week. Jesus has risen. I can’t contain myself.
If you want the video of me doing that, ask Tropp.
Thursday, November 2nd (leading up to week 9):
“Breaking: Texans fear star rookie QB Deshaun Watson tore his ACL in practice today (Rapoport)”
You nerd Ian Rapoport better be lying or have misheard your “sources”
*5 minutes later*
“Deshaun Watson out for season”
I don’t know what to do with myself.
Even better Philip Rivers is on a bye this week and I will be starting Drew Stanton this week. Yeah, how’s your day going?
