Texans DE J.J. Watt is opening training camp on the active/PUP list. He had a knee "cleaned up" in January and is likely just getting a little extra rest to rebound from that. We've seen no indication the star DE has a worrisome issue, and he's coming off his 1st 16-game season in 3 years (with 16 sacks). Expect Watt to be fine for IDP fantasy football drafts.

Texans DE J.J. Watt says things are going well as he works his way back from the broken leg that ended his season in Week 5. “It’s doing really, really well,” Watt said, per ESPN's Sarah Barshop. “[I’m] very excited about where it’s going. I’m on track for training camp. But my assumption is that it shouldn’t be any problem, but if it needs a couple extra weeks, whatever, we’ll take it. From my understanding and from everybody here’s understanding, the way it’s looking, everything’s going really well. There shouldn’t be any issues.” We'll keep an eye on him as training camp approaches. A healthy Watt remains a potentially dominant force both on the field and IDP fantasy football leagues.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Watt will miss the rest of the season.
