Fantasy football IDP targets from the AFC South: Darius Leonard, J.J. Watt, Joe Schobert and more

In this weekly series, we're exploring every NFL team’s defense to provide in-depth fantasy football analysis for key IDPs. We'll focus on projected depth charts, what each IDP’s role will be heading into the 2020 NFL season and what we can expect from them for fantasy purposes. Plus, we'll cover a bonus name to watch for each team.

Next up, the AFC South, where J.J. Watt continues to wreak havoc. (Find IDP targets from the NFC North here.)



Since entering the NFL in 2011, J.J. Watt has been one of the most dominant edge defenders in recent history. Although injuries have started to slow him down slightly, there is no denying his impact when on the field. Watt has accumulated 103 sacks on 565 total pressures to go along with 320 solo tackles in his regular-season career. If Watt is healthy, he is in the conversation as a Tier-1 edge rusher.
