Deshaun Watson News

  • Deshaun Watson problems continue · Oct 15, 2022

    Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson is facing another allegation of sexual misconduct

    This time, the plaintiff is being represented by someone other than Tony Buzbee, the attorney representing the other women. The fear is that there remains other women who may still come forward with additional allegations. As for Watson, he's currently serving an 11 game suspension and while there's little chance the paperwork for the most recent allegation would be completed prior to week 12, it's still uncertain as to how/if Watson could be impacted as this would be considered a new offense. It's a new variable in an already troubling story and it appears as though this issue will play out well into 2023. Deshaun Watson is found as DLF's QB10 but obviously could see a decline in value based on the results of this newest allegation.

  • Deshaun Watson out 11 games · Aug 18, 2022

    Deshaun Watson and the NFL have reached an agreement on a settlement that will close his peronsal conduct case and result in a final suspension of 11 games.

    Watson will also be given a $5 million fine and have to undergo mandatory behavioral counseling as part of the agreement. Watson was clearly concerned the NFL was going to come back and suspend him for another full season and worked fast to find middle ground beyond the six-game suspension he was given by the independent judge. This finally gives us some clarity on what's going to happen and gives Watson managers the ability to go to "Plan B." As for the Browns, they could stick with Jacoby Brissett or look to get Jimmy Garoppolo as a bridge to Watson. After all, a lot can be decided in 11 games. As for Watson, his ranking of QB12 seems secure at the moment, though it should rise when he comes back.

  • Deshaun Watson seeking settlement · Aug 17, 2022

    Browns quarterback is Deshaun Watson actively engaged in settlement negotiations with the NFL

    The league was looking for a suspension of at least a year and Watson was given six games most recently. Now the embattled quarterback is said to be offering up millions in the form of a fine as well as a greater number of games. While actual settlement could still be a ways out, it would seem that something in the 10-12 game range will be the ultimate result. Dynasty coaches should expect to be without Watson for a majority of 2022. He's found as DLF's QB12.

  • Deshaun Watson's suspension on appeal · Aug 4, 2022

    The NFL is appealing the decision to suspend Deshaun Watson for only six games.

    It's not uncommon for players to appeal their suspensions, but this time it's the other way around. The NFL is claiming Watson's behavior merits a much longer suspension while the disciplinary officer is claiming there simply isn't enough evidence to merit a longer loss of games. The NFLPA is also stating they'll sue the NFL if they appeal the suspension. In short, this saga isn't over and it's a total mess. At this point, expect to see Watson in week seven, though things could certainly change. Regardless, it does seem as if Watson was granted a lighter sentence than most expected.

  • Deshaun Watson suspended six games · Aug 1, 2022

    Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson received a six game suspension from disciplinary officer Sue L. Robinson. What now?

    It's actually favorable news for the Watson camp as there was the possibility he could have been suspended for the entire season and the league was angling for an indefinite suspension. Both sides may appeal the ruling but Watson's camp and the NFLPA already indicated they would not. The greatest risk remaining would be if the league appeals the suspension in which commissioner Roger Goodell would hear the appeal and could impose additional games. While Watson is not yet out of the woods, it's a favorable first step after missing all of 2021. He remains DLF's QB12 for now.

  • Deshaun Watson decision looms · Aug 1, 2022

    The ruling on Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson is expected on Monday

    For better or worse, the saga will come to an end, at least as it relates to the number of games Watson will miss. Efforts to settle between the team and the league went nowhere and his future now rests with Judge Sue L. Robinson. Given that every fantasy coach understands the history, what's at stake and the details, nothing else need be said at this time. We'll know shortly how many games he'll be sidelined, with 6-8 being, seemingly, most likely. Watson has slipped to DLF's QB12.

  • Deshaun Watson decision looms · Jul 18, 2022

    The Browns open training camp on July 27th and the league's decision on Deshaun Watson is expected prior

    It's more of the same for Watson and his dynasty managers but the situation is nearing a conclusion. The team back loaded Watson's five-year mega-deal, making his first-year base salary just over $1M, with the base salary of the remaining four years valued at $184M. It's clear the team fully expected they may be without the superstar-potential Watson for at least part, or all, of 2022, including the signing of capable veteran backup Jacoby Brissett. In any case, the long ordeal is nearing a completion and Watson remains highly risk-on for 2022. He's listed as DLF's QB12 but is certain to rise with anything less than a full-season suspension.

  • Deshaun Watson settles 20 of 24 lawsuits · Jun 21, 2022

    Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson has settled 20 of 24 lawsuits against him

    This is huge news for Watson as he attempts to return to the field in 2022. The attorney representing the 24 women said: “Today I announce that all cases against Deshaun Watson, with the exception of four, have settled. We are working through the paperwork related to those settlements. Once we have done so, those particular cases will be dismissed." It would certainly seem to suggest that the remaining four suits will be settled shortly. Watson still faces a lengthy suspension and may still be forced to remain off the field for the entirety of the 2022 season. We should hear from the NFL within the next month as training camps open in July. Deshaun Watson is listed as DLF's QB11.

  • Deshaun Watson facing lengthy suspension · Jun 18, 2022

    The belief is that embattled Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson could be suspended for the entirety of 2022

    It's not a surprise and all signs pointed to a lengthy suspension heading into the off-season and that possibility has only increased as new women have recently come forward and new charges have been added. It's a fluid situation and the NFL decision should be known shortly. Dynasty coaches rostering Watson should have alternative plans for 2022. He's listed as DLF's QB11 and will likely hold near this ranking for the next season while his legal issues play out.

  • Deshaun Watson contract could be voided · Jun 7, 2022

    The addition of a potential 24th lawsuit against Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson may create significant consequences related to his guaranteed contract.

    Basically, new charges could fall outside of the existing contract which covers 22 of the known individuals and charges. If the new charges help to bring about a suspension, it's not out of the realm of possibility the team could void Watson's contract altogether. We would suggest those interested read the linked story. As for Watson, his near-term future remains very much in doubt and it's looking increasingly likely that he may not play in 2022. With the league expected to render a decision from their investigation soon, dynasty leaguers should know more in the coming weeks. Watson is ranked as a risk-on QB7 on DLF's quarterback rankings.
