Summary

J.J. Watt is far and away the best defensive end in the game in all but the most obscure IDP scoring settings. While he didn't quite match his 2014 numbers, he came very close. He only missed his previous mark by three sacks and a few solo tackles. Watt is also sometimes used in red zone packages as a tight end, which only adds to his appeal. Jadeveon Clowney is finally rounding into form after being more than a year removed from microfracture surgery. With Clowney frequently setting the edge on the other side, and most of the defense intact from last year, Watt will continue to put up the fantastic numbers to which owners have been accustomed.
