HOUSTON – Fantasy football writer and insider Scott Barrett of Fantasypoints.com talked with me this week on how he believes various Texans players will fare in the 2020 football season from a fantasy standpoint.

QB Deshaun Watson

“I don’t know how he doesn’t regress without Deandre Hopkins there. He’s still a top-five fantasy quarterback. He’s hypermobile. He uses his legs and that’s what we want in a fantasy (player). He’s still going to be a valuable fantasy quarterback without Hopkins.”

RB David Johnson

“I want no part of David Johnson in any of my leagues. I’m not counting for fantasy at all. It’s possible they make him the team’s bell cow. By Pro Football Focus' elusive rating, he was one of the five worst in elusive rating. It was the same thing the year before that, and he was injured the year before that.”

WR Will Fuller

“The thing I love about him is every time I bring him up, people say ‘He never stays healthy,' and that’s exactly the time you target someone like Will Fuller. It’s a massive injury discount. He’s super boom or bust.”
