Deshaun Watson @ PHI $8,000

This is a good spot for Deshaun Watson this week, despite this being a road game in Philadelphia. The Eagles have allowed the sixth-most yards, second-most passing yards and fantasy points to wideouts. It’s been a rough go for their secondary as the injuries continue to be an issue. Watson also has that rushing ability which gives him a solid floor; At least 30 rushing yards in four of his past six games. Watson is the second-ranked QB in the last four weeks. It was his best fantasy game of the season as he had four total touchdowns.
