Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 17 vs ATL (4 / 2 / 27 / 0 rec)
Watson struggled in this one as Winston locked onto Perriman. He was the target on Winston's first interception, which was pretty clearly a miscommunication between the two, with Watson stopping a route and continuing deep when Winston appeared to think he was cutting inside. Watson hauled in a short gain on a comeback route up the left sideline late in the 2nd quarter, then another comeback route for 10 yards late in the 4th quarter.
2019 Week 16 vs HOU (10 / 5 / 43 / 1 rec)
Watson worked as the number two option opposite Breshad Perriman, drawing ten targets total. He was the target on Winston's first interception, an out route that was underthrown by the quarterback and jumped by cornerback Bradley Roby for a pick six. Watson had a step on his defender on a deep corner route in the end zone later in the 1st, but stumbled out of his break and couldn't haul in a surefire touchdown from Winston. Watson finally got on the board later in the 2nd quarter with a comeback route for a short gain. Watson worked his way open as Winston scrambled to the right for a short touchdown at the end of the 1st half of play. Watson picked up 9 more yards on a quick slant in the 3rd quarter then had a clutch conversion on 3rd and 4 during the last drive of the 4th quarter. Watson is strong in the middle of the field, playing a lot like Mike Evans does in that regard, but he hasn't shown much as a downfield/deep ball threat thus far.
2019 Week 15 vs DET (2 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
Watson showed us a low floor this week as he drew a disappointing target total despite Mike Evans missing the game and Chris Godwin and Scotty Miller exiting with injures. Watson took a backset to Breshad Perriman, who was able to consistently burn the Detroit defense with his speed. Watson lined up in the slot and picked up a five yard gain on a curl route in the 1st quarter. He picked up one more 12 yard gain on a curl route to help extend a late drive and run out the clock in the 4th.
2019 Week 14 vs IND (8 / 5 / 59 / 1 rec)
Watson got his first real NFL action after Evans left with a hamstring injury. He snagged his first catch at the end of the 1st half of play and nearly followed it up with a touchdown, but a defender made a good play on the ball as Winston targeted Watson in the end zone. Winston targeted him again on the next play, but Watson came up a few yards short of the end zone on the reception. Watson got behind his defender on a skinny post route late in the 3rd quarter for the first touchdown of his NFL career. Watson rounded his day out with another nice gain up the seam on the following drive and an out route early in the 4th. Watson seems to be occupying Mike Evan's spot in the offense, with Perriman rotating in as the 3rd receiver. Scotty Miller could steal some snaps if he returns from injury this week.
2019 Week 4 vs LAR (1 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
Watson was used sparingly in the wide receiver rotation. He lined up in the right slot in a 4WR set, catching a deep curl on his only target for his first reception of the season.
