the Houston Texans QB According to Yahoo’s Charles Robinson, the Miami Dolphins have “emerged. as the frontrunner in trade discussions” for Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson. The Texans have also stated that they want three first-round picks and two second-round picks in exchange for Watson.
The fact that Watson established himself. As an elite NFL quarterback while on the field last season. Even without DeAndre Hopkins, was a testament to his ability. He finished third among all quarterbacks in PFF’s passing grade (91.2). After throwing for 4,823 yards, 33 touchdowns, and only seven interceptions.
He also finished second in the NFL in big-time throw rate (7.4 percent). And he had the second-lowest turnover-worthy play rate among quarterbacks.
Who had at least 150 dropbacks in the season?
But, Watson’s eligibility for the Olympics in 2021 is in doubt due to 22 allegations of sexual abuse.
The Impact Of Fantasy Football
Watson would be a top-ten fantasy quarterback, at the very least. Since entering the NFL, he ranks as a top-five fantasy quarterback when he is healthy. The Dolphins don’t have an elite Hopkins-type receiver like Watson. But they have a much deeper receiving corps than Watson’s team does. It may, but, take some time for him to become acclimated to his new surroundings. To view the PFF’s fantasy rankings for the year 2021, please visit this page.
Will Fuller’s stock would rise as a result of this. Even though the entire offense will benefit. Fuller may receive the most significant boost of all. After spending the last four seasons of his career catching passes from Watson. the free-agent acquisition joined the team this season. If only for the first few weeks of the season, Fuller would be Watson’s top choice in the secondary.
Impact On Betting

Fuller has a modest 875.5 receiving yardage prop that is still available at DraftKings. Regardless of whether Watson takes over, Fuller should surpass the 1,000-yard receiving mark.

Impact Of The Nfl
Tagovailoa has had a strong preseason, and he should continue to do so. With a 75.9 grade in the first two weeks of the preseason, he appears to be much more at ease in Miami’s offense.
Watson, but, is a prodigy. Even though he lost No. 1 receiver, DeAndre Hopkins, he posted a career-high 92.5-grade last season before the season.
Miami’s offensive line has the potential to be a stumbling block for either quarterback. Even though the Dolphins have yet to discover the source of their horrendous line problems. 2020 first-round left tackle Austin Jackson has a 33.1 pass-blocking grade so far in the preseason.
