Deshaun Watson News

  • Deshaun Watson off to slow start · Sep 19, 2023

    Deshaun Watson has thrown for 389 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, while taking nine sacks, to start the 2023 season.

    Watson has seen constant pressure in both games and has yet to find his rhythm. This wouldn't normally be a concern though Watson entered 2023 under enormous pressure to have an upside season following his massive guaranteed contract and wind-down of his legal issues. Watson's dynasty value, currently DLF's QB10, isn't yet under pressure but should his struggles continue into the near future, the foundation may begin to see erosion.

  • Deshaun Watson's return to form · Sep 7, 2023

    The Browns believe Deshaun Watson looks like he did while with the Texans

    Watson didn't show much during the preseason but offenses are basic and the team's excitement stems from his play in camp. He turns 28 in a week and, while not completely out of the legal woods, is free to resume his ascent as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. But there's more rust to knock off and still lingering doubt that Watson can return to form, until he proves otherwise. Listed as DLF's QB12, Watson was a popular name in trade this past offseason in dynast formats and an improved receiver corps. along with a full offseason of camp has arrows pointing higher for 2023.

  • Deshaun Watson inconsistent · Aug 16, 2023

    Deshaun Watson has had an inconsistent camp

    By all accounts, there's been little consistency or chemistry with Deshaun Watson and the offense. It's now what Browns faithful were hoping for or expecting in Watson's second year with the team, one expected to see him return to form from his days in Houston. In fact, the report says: "The passing game has been completely unimpressive" and Watson has been throwing "bad interceptions." It's far too soon to raise warning flags following Watson's slow start and his mobility, once the regular season begins, will soften up the defense and potentially help jump-start the passing attack. That said, a slow start to begin the regular season could be a catalyst for returned drama surrounding Watson and his huge guaranteed contract. Deshaun Watson is listed as DLF's QB12.

  • Deshaun Watson motivated · May 31, 2023

    Speaking on the differences between 2022 and 2023, Deshaun Watson says he's "very motivated" to prove doubters wrong.

    Watson has been a popular dynasty trade asset this offseason as he attempts to rebound from a very difficult previous two seasons. Now with a full offseason of training in Cleveland, he's ready to prove doubters wrong and appears to be focused on being better than he was in his time with the Texans. Expectations will be high for Watson, who turns 28 in September, and there are still questions about the team's receiving corps., but he remains a top talent under-center and is capable of doing more with less. Given the compensation and draft picks required to acquire Watson, DLF's QB11, the Browns can't afford to have anything less than near league-leading production in 2023.

  • Deshaun Watson night and day · Apr 19, 2023

    Deshaun Watson says it's a night and day difference between now and his 2022 return under center following his 11-game suspension

    Watson only has two remaining counts against him and the legal process continues to play out. As for his play on the field, it stands to reason there's a big difference between now and then. With a full offseason of preparation ahead, command of the playbook and shaking off the rust late in 2022, there's a lot to look forward to for those hazarding a value-on selection of the returning quarterback. Found as DLF's QB11, as long as the former start remains on the field for the entirety of 2023, there's reason to believe Deshaun Watson will outplay his current dynasty ranking.
