Summary

Watt turns 31 years old this year, had another significant injury last year, and has lost some of his supporting cast on the line. With DJ Reeder gone, an unproven Brandon Dunn will have to step up in a big way to keep Watt from becoming the sole focal point of opposing blocking efforts. The days of him being a top-five option for fantasy purposes are over, but that does not mean that Watt does not hold some value, especially when positional scarcity is considered. 60 combined tackles and 10 sacks are not out of reach for Watt, which could still land him among the top 10 fantasy options among defensive linemen.
