J.J. Watt

Defensive Line • Texans

Bottom Line

Hereís the epitome of a high-risk, high-reward IDP play. Watt had 20.5 sacks in both 2012 and 2014, with 17.5 sacks in 2015. From 2012 through 2015, Watt averaged 17.3 sacks and 78.8 tackles per season, with a total of 15 forced fumbles and 10 fumble recoveries. In 2016, Watt played only three games because of a back injury that required two microdiscectomy surgeries. Last year he played five games, recorded zero sacks and had his season end with a tibial plateau fracture in his leg. Watt, 29, is a beast when heís physically sound, but the odds of him playing a full 16-game season probably arenít good.
