Key Stat: TJ Watt is the youngest of the brothers Watt

Tip Reasoning

  • TJ Watt is a reigning Defensive Player of the Year
  • TJ Watt is a 4x Pro Bowler and 3x All Pro
  • TJ Watt tied the record for most sacks in NFL history after finishing last season with 22.5 sacks

The Watt family, three brothers who are definitely writing history in the NFL as one of the most successful families that played this game are heading for another campaign. The youngest of the brothers, TJ Watt is a reigning defensive player of the season and we are looking forward of seeing him again dominating the Steelers defense. TJ Watt tied the record in the NFL with 22.5 sacks in a single season which is the best record in the history of the NFL.

TJ Watt is listed among the top 3 guys that are favored to win one of the biggest individual rewards in the NFL. Along with Aarond Donald from the Rams and Myles Garett from the Browns are leading candidates for this category. It can never be a bad choice to back your wagers on him as in his five season in the NFL he has been a 4x Pro Bowler, and 3 times top 3 defender in the league. His reward for his attitude on the field came last year as he finally took the reward as a defensive player of the year after previously finishing on the 2nd and 3rd position respectively. The +800 odds to back him are more than generous and we are going with this selection.
