Summary

After two injury-riddled seasons, J.J. Watt bounced back to have one of the better statistical campaigns of his career. 16 sacks, 61 combined tackles, and seven forced fumbles was enough to secure a top-five finish at his position in most scoring formats. Watt is 30 years old this year, but essentially missing two years due to injuries and being spared all the wear and tear that goes with playing a full season may have the effect of prolonging his career. The pass rush unit around Watt remains intact for at least one more year. Therefore, it's reasonable to expect Watt to have another effective season of double digit sacks and over 50 combined tackles. (May 20)
