Here are some numbers:

In week 6, there were 20 D-linemen that had more snaps than JJ Watt.
In week 7, there were 24 and in week 9, there were 22.

These numbers include all Nose tackles as well as 4-3 DEs.

Watt was used quite a bit (more than the average D-linemen), but he was not among those who were "over-used".
