Chargers' Derek Watt: Rehabbing from shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chargers' Derek Watt: Limited to special-teams role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chargers' Derek Watt: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chargers' Derek Watt: Officially listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chargers' Derek Watt: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt (thumb) is active for Sunday's game versus the Rams.

Watt isn't a fantasy asset, with just one carry in two games, but his presence will open holes for tailbacks Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler.

Chargers' Derek Watt: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt (thumb) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Watt is used mainly as a blocker, so his absence wouldn't directly affect fantasy owners. However, Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler could both lose an edge without Watt to pave the way.

Chargers' Derek Watt: Questionable to return to Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt left Sunday's game with a thumb injury and is questionable to return.

The extent of Watt's injury is unknown, but should he not return, we will likely garner a better idea of his availability moving forward with next week's practice report.

Chargers' Derek Watt: Catches one pass for 53 yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt caught his only target for 53 yards in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

Watt managed to take a simple check-down in the first quarter 53 yards, nearly scoring as he was tackled just before the end zone. That play set up the Chargers' first touchdown, as Philip Rivers was able to connect with Antonio Gates just three plays later. Watt has primarily been used as a lead blocker for Melvin Gordon, and as a result, he has next to zero fantasy value as he hasn't been in a position to put together fantasy-friendly stats.

Chargers' Derek Watt: Picks up first career catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt recorded his first career NFL catch in the loss to the Colts on Sunday.

Watt has only seen 25 snaps on offense through three games, primarily as the lead blocker for Melvin Gordon. Watt's fantasy value will continue to remain limited so long as he's sitting on the bench.
