Houston Texans DFS Spin
Deshaun Watson completed 19-of-32 passes for 281 yards and two touchdowns in the Texans' Week 10 win over the Jaguars. Watson was Houston's leading rusher with David Johnson leaving with a concussion, running for 50 yards on 10 carries. He got most of his production on a 77-yard Will Fuller touchdown that should have been a delay of game penalty. Watson targeted Brandin Cooks a team-high nine times and connected with Cooks for his other score. Watson's rushing usage is likely to go up if Johnson misses time. The Browns are another favorable matchup for Watson in Week 10.
Cleveland Browns DFS Spin
Browns activated QB Baker Mayfield from the reserve/COVID-19 list. Mayfield never tested positive but was considered a high-risk contact. Now that he's been cleared, he'll rejoin the team and have a normal week of practice. Mayfield has a matchup with the Texans' bottom-three secondary coming off Cleveland's bye.
Texans vs. Browns Betting Prediction
The Texans are 5-0 against the spread in their last five meetings with the Browns and have covered in five of their last six games when playing in Week 10. The Browns, meanwhile, are 1-7 against the number in their last eight conference games, are 1-5-1 against the number in their last seven games coming off a bye and are 1-10 at the betting window in their last 11 games after accumulating less than 250 total yards in their previous contest.
