At the Kicker position: Josh Lambo (2016 Avg: 7.50 Pts/Game) has been added to the starting lineup.
Schedule Difficulty:
Based on the winning percentage of the teams on the schedule Watt plays this year (112 - 96 - 1 0.538%) will be more difficult compared to the teams on the schedule from last season (106 - 103 - 0 0.507%), and last season's teams gave up more points (4,992) compared to this season's teams (4,604) so this could mean less fantasy points.
Performance Against Sub 500 Teams:
Watt surprisingly had a higher fantasy avg (0.86 pts/game) against winning teams last year compared to teams with a losing record (0.55 pts/game), so with a more difficult schedule for the upcoming season it could be an indication of a higher fantasy average.
Defenses:
From a defensive standpoint, Watt will face defenses that are stronger this year (Avg. Total Yards Against Ranking: 17.15 - 4 Top 10 Defenses and 1 Top 5 Defense) compared to last season (Avg. Total Yards Against Ranking: 20.54 - 3 Top 10 Defenses and 2 Top 5 Defenses), and last season's teams gave up more rushing yards (114 yds/game - 2 Top 10 Defenses and 1 Top 5 Defense) compared to this season's teams (113 yds/game - 3 Top 10 Defenses and 1 Top 5 Defense).
