Christian Watson, WR, Green Bay Packers

After a strong rookie season in 2022, fantasy players were prompted to draft Christian Watson high in leagues this summer, looking for a breakout year. That didn't happen.

Watson had a hamstring injury keep him out of the season opener and that injury seemed to linger all season and he was limited to just nine games. As a result, he caught only 28 passes on the season.

Watson was frustrating for managers because he was up and down on the injury report every week. And even when he played, he just didn't look anywhere close to the player who ended the 2022 on such a big note.

Fantasy players should proceed with caution with Watson next season as he is going to have to earn their trust back after such a dismal season.
