Watt is rehabbing after undergoing shoulder surgery in late May, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports. It's unclear when Watt sustained the injury, but he currently is without a timetable for a return. The 26-year-old saw more snaps on special teams than with the offense in 2018, finishing with just four carries for 11 yards and one reception for two yards in 16 games.
Watt played zero offensive snaps and 26 special-teams snaps Sunday in the Chargers' 41-28 loss to the Patriots in the divisional round. It's been standard for Watt to receive more run on the Chargers' kick-coverage and kick-return units throughout the season, but this was the first time he was excluded entirely on offense. That was probably a byproduct of the game script more than anything, as the Chargers trailed by 28 points at halftime and had little use for a lead blocker while attempting just 10 runs on the day. Watt should return as Los Angeles' fullback in 2019, but that role won't yield him anything more than the occasional touch. Over his 18 games this season, Watt ran four times for 11 yards and gained three yards on two receptions.
Watt (shoulder) is active for Sunday's divisional-round matchup with the Patriots. Watt's status is of little surprise after he was a full participant in Friday's practice session. He holds little fantasy value himself, but his presence as a blocker will bode well for Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler.
Watt (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's divisional-round playoff game against the Patriots, Sam Fortier of The Athletic reports. Watt was a full participant in Friday's practice after having been limited Thursday and Wednesday. The third-year fullback isn't an asset in fantasy formats, having only logged four carries during the regular season, but Watt will help open holes for Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler if he's able to suit up.
