Tom Savage Benched in Favor of Deshaun Watson

It took all but one half for Tom Savage to be benched as the Houston Texans' starter for rookie No. 12 overall pick Deshaun Watson. 

It came after Savage completed 7-of-13 passes for 62 yards with two lost fumbles as the Jacksonville Jaguars took a 19-0 lead into halftime. 

Promptly, Watson would respond by leading the Texans on a 14-play, 75-yard touchdown scoring drive that culminated in a scoring strike to DeAndre Hopkins

This is most definitely something to pay attention to from a fantas perspective. If nothing else, Watson now becomes a potential Week 2 waiver-wire claim in redraft leagues.
