2020 RTSports Outlook

Watson saw a dip in playing time last year, having 35 receptions after having 61 the previous year. It was not a surprise, though, if you consider his age. He is now 38 years old and faces a four-game suspension to start this season. Watson could be the top backup for the Patriots, though. The team doesn't have a lot of quality depth at the position, so the veteran could get his chances once he finds the field. Watson is a big, fast target over the middle and a nice deep threat, considering his size. He isn't much of a blocker, but has improved in that area later in his career.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Watson has produced in recent years but starting the year suspended is a concern as well as his age. He is a risk for fantasy teams. For now, expect around 30 catches for 300 yards with a few scores.
