Remember when people were saying Deshaun Watson was a fantasy bust? Yeah, me too. Because it was yesterday just prior to the Texans dominating win over the Miami Dolphins on Thursday Night Football.
But after an impressive five-touchdown performance, where the second-year signal caller went 16-for-20 for 239 yards, Watson is back where he belongs -- as a top-10 fantasy QB.

And he's also in some elite company now. With those five TDs, Watson can now be lumped in with Hall of Famers Kurt Warner and Dan Marino for the most touchdown passes in their first 15 career games.
Most touchdown passes through 15 career games:— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) October 26, 2018
1. Kurt Warner, 36
2. Deshaun Watson, 34 (14 starts)
3. Dan Marino, 32
That all but proves just how good Watson is, as well as a real fantasy QB. Plus, he could end up being tops on that list, if he can manage to throw three more touchdown passes next week.
If you happened to bench Watson this week, well shame on you. He remains a high-ceiling QB1 week in and week out, even with the loss of Will Fuller on Thursday night.
