Deshaun Watson is currently the Texans starting quarterback, but due to multiple law suits being brought against him he could be facing criminal charges and likely a suspension from the league. If Watson is suspended, Tyrod Taylor would assume the role as the team's starting quarterback with Ryan Finley and rookie Davis Mills battling to be his understudy. Legal issues aside, Watson is on record saying that he does not want to play for the Texans again, which adds to the uncertainty and lack of clarity with the Texans quarterback situation. Early in the offseason, before any legalities came into view, Watson asked for a trade out of Houston. As of now, he is still the Texans starting quarterback and he may face a suspension from the league. In fantasy terms, Watson is one of the best producing quarterbacks in the league, finishing with a top five ranking in 2020, his third top-five finish in as many years. The likelihood that Watson misses zero games regardless of which team he plays for in 2021 is slim. In actuality, he may miss a minimum of six games and it could be more, perhaps even the entire season. Tread carefully when selecting Watson as a fantasy option in 2021. Be sure to have adequate alternative options in the event he isn't available.
