Watson signed a three-year contract with the 49ers on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Watson, who's struggled to stay healthy the past few years, strung together a full, 16-game season with the Broncos in 2016 and wound up leading the team with 11 special teams tackles. While he could theoretically carve out a rotational role at linebacker this summer, look for him to do most of his work for the Niners on special teams.

Watson (elbow) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Watson will serve as a reserve linebacker for Sunday's matchup so he doesn't figure to see the field too often, although he could play a role in Denver's special teams unit.

Watson registered four tackles and 2.5 sacks in Saturday's preseason win over the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

The former journeyman middle linebacker has found his calling on the outside this preseason, racking up four sacks and a safety this preseason. Outside rusher is arguably Denver's deepest position with Von Miller, DeMarcus Ware, Shaq Barrett and Shane Ray all locks to make the team. Watson is likely in their company. The Broncos carried five outside linebackers last season and the team could use additional depth in an effort to keep Ware fresh during the season.

EDGE Analysis

The release of wide receiver Chris Harper opened a roster spot for Watson, who will mainly fill in as linebacker depth for New England. However, it will probably take a few injuries before he gains any fantasy value in IDP formats.

The 27-year-old could sign elsewhere as a depth linebacker, but don't expect more than few tackles from him next season unless a starter goes down.
