Texans' J.J. Watt: Ties for sack lead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt recorded three tackles and a sack in Sunday's win over Buffalo.

After a slow start to the season, Watt has recorded at least one sack in four straight games, giving him 7.0 for the season. That ties him with Minnesota's Danielle Hunter for tops in the NFL.

Texans' J.J. Watt: Brings down quarterback again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt had two tackles and a sack during Sunday's 19-16 victory over the Cowboys.

Watt now is tied for the NFL lead with six sacks, with all of them coming in the last three games. Teammate Jadeveon Clowney's recent dominance on the defensive line has aided Watt's pass rush, and the latter seems to have picked up right where he left off after injuries limited him to just eight games over the past two seasons.

Texans' J.J. Watt: Got better as game progressed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt had three tackles and two quarterback hits in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Patriots in Week 1.

Watt was initially quiet, but started getting into the backfield more often in the second half. While he didn't get credit for a sack, Watt created the pressure that forced New England quarterback Tom Brady into the waiting arms of D.J. Reader. It was a good effort by Watt, who was limited to eight games played over the last two seasons by back and leg injuries.

Texans' J.J. Watt: May not be limited Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Romeo Crenel is optimistic that Watt will not be limited in Sunday's season-opener against the Patriots, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

"Right now he's been doing OK in practice," Crennel said, "so he should be there." Watt was heavily limited throughout the preseason, playing only three defensive series in one game against the Rams. While it's hard to say whether Watt will ever have the same impact as during his historically dominant 2012-2015 stretch, the defensive end at least looks likely to start against New England on Sunday.

Texans' J.J. Watt: Active during joint practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt made several impact plays during Wednesday's joint practice session with the 49ers, John Harris of the Texans' official site reports.

Watt made plays from both the right and left sides of the line, forcing San Francisco quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo into hurried and errant throws, or to adjust his delivery, or to throw an interception. The defensive end said earlier in the week that he will be ready to go Week 1 against the Patriots and backed up those words with his actions Wednesday.
