Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson has emerged quickly as one of the best players in the NFL. He likewise has the best-selling jersey among all rookies.

According to NFLShop.com, from the start of the regular season through Week Six, the top-selling jersey belongs to Watson.

No. 2 belongs to Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt, followed by Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky, Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt, Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey, Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette, Vikings running back Dalvin Cook, Jets safety Jamal Adams, Steelers running back James Conner, and Browns safety Jabrill Peppers.

Browns defensive end Myles Garrett could soon join the list, if he keeps playing like he has during his first two games. 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard could as well, if his team manages to upset the Cowboys on Sunday.

  1. I already put a Fournette jersey on order with Santa Claus for Christmas. Fournette waving Mike Mitchell on to come get some was Earl Campbell worthy. He had me at hello.

  2. aaron rodgers jerseys come with an added cost for sewn in shoulder pads. Otherwise, he’d be the front runner.

  3. One of the best players in the NFL? Statistically – yes he is but isn’t it a little soon to put him at that level? I like the guy and think he has been great and has tons of potential (and hope he ends up a HoFer) but this sounds kind of like the type of Grudenesque hyperbole nonsense that’s frequently criticized by Florio here. Let’s give him a season or two before we put him in Canton – can we?

  4. There is Deshaun ‘The Man With The Golden Gun’ Watson… and everyone else. Leonard ‘Freight Train’ Fournette only other serious threat Rookie of the Year, improving by the week and the leading rusher NFL by weekend’s end. Meanwhile here Paris of the Plains KC, we have Hunt and ol’ what’s his name – ‘the best QB in the draft’, plead locals – Patrick ‘Pine’ Mahomes (his jersey is apparently tied with Waldo’s, sales rank.)

  5. Reality is that D. Watson is the best rookie we have seen in some time. What he is doing is unreal.

    Hope my team doesn’t face him in the playoffs.

  6. Looks like a best player in 4 games. Now hes a future hof? Hes played against rubbish defenses and will be found out soon like Prescott. All will soon realise hes a middle of the pack qb.1st read not there,run.

  7. Remember before the beginning of last season Deshaun was the favorite #1 quarterback, but a upset by Pittsburgh and a few more int’s later all of a sudden some Air Raid quarterback from Texas, and a qb with only 12 starts from North Carolina, were better prospects than him?

    People he made Nick Saban who run threw teams like They’re peewee trash look foolish on a National STAGE twice. The best defense and defensive mind in college.

    It’s amazing how no one saw this coming….

    He also started 3 out of 4 years at Clemson and that exempting year he tore his acl.

    rageviral, what’s the matter, you jealous! just because you don’t like the praise that Watson is receiving don’t mean that he isn’t a future star. No one said that he was destined for the HOF, you are the one saying that, so at that, that’s your fault and no one elses’.
    Give the guy credit, it’s not his fault if the defenses he has played are not up to your standards, he can only play against the teams that are assigned for his team to play. If he hadn’t beaten those subpar defenses, you would still be on your high horse ranting against him by saying, “if he was so good, why couldn’t be beat those subpar defenses”. And when he does beat them, you say, “he played against rubbish defenses and will only be a middle of the pack QB like Prescott”. You sound like you are a bigoted person. You can’t have it both ways son, admit it, you are resentful because Watson is playing above even your expectations and thus, you want to diminish his success by denigrating him, go figure.
