Texans Draft QB Deshaun Watson

The Brock Osweiler era in Houston ended almost as soon as it began.  This is Deshaun Watson's team now and he inherits an offense capable of big things with DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller, Lamar Miller and 3rd round draft pick RB D'Onta Foreman.

Sure, the Texans had to give up a 2018 first round pick, but the difference between them and the Chicago Bears?  Houston is already a playoff caliber team with one of the best defenses in the NFL.  Oh, and they drafted LB Zach Cunningham in the 2nd round!

Watson is a proven winner but will have to work on his interception rate.  He might not be a great fantasy football option but he will be a huge help in real life.  Houston has finished 9-7 three years in a row, twice winning the AFC South.

With the Tennessee Titans, Indianapolis Colts and even the Jacksonville Jaguars all improving their roster and developing their young talent, 9-7 might night be good enough in 2017.  That being said, the Texans are 14-4 against their division rivals over the last 3 years.
