Saints | Ben Watson wants to return

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 13:08:39 -0800

New Orleans Saints impending free-agent TE Benjamin Watson said he would love to stay in New Orleans, adding that he has had good talks with owner Mickey Loomis and head coach Sean Payton about re-signing.

Fantasy Tip: Watson was a valuable part of the Saints high-flying offense in 2015, posting career-highs in catches (74) and yards (825), and tied his career-high in touchdowns (6). Who knows if he'll be used as much as he was last season, if he does return, but keep him in your TE1 options heading into next season.

Saints | Benjamin Watson to play Sunday

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 07:50:33 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Benjamin Watson (knee) will play in Week 16's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Watson ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) did not practice at all during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He has the seventh-most receiving yards (761) among all NFL tight ends this season and should be viewed as a productive means of cap relief in FantasyScore.

Saints | Benjamin Watson doesn't practice

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 18:52:44 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Benjamin Watson (knee) didn't practice Friday, Dec. 25, and he is listed as questionable to face the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Watson ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) doesn't have the highest ceiling, but he does rank seventh among tight ends in receiving yards this year. He is a reliable source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

Saints | Marques Colston, Benjamin Watson out

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 15:41:51 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (chest) and TE Benjamin Watson (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Dec. 23. The Saints didn't actually practice Wednesday, so the report is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) typically sits out Wednesdays. Watson ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) and Colston both have a nice matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but it might not matter if Drew Brees (foot) can't play. Without him, both Colston and Watson are weak daily picks.

Saints | Benjamin Watson goes off in win

Sun, 01 Nov 2015 19:16:10 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Benjamin Watson had team-highs with nine catches and 147 yards with one touchdown in the Week 8 game against the New York Giants. He was targeted 10 times.

Fantasy Tip: Watson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) did his best Jimmy Graham imitation, and he will likely be a popular pluck off the waiver wire in standard fantasy leagues. For FantasyScore, he could still be a good value going forward, but he faces the NFL's No. 2 ranked pass defense in Week 9 against the Tennessee Titans so be careful.

Saints | Career night for Benjamin Watson

Thu, 15 Oct 2015 20:53:14 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Benjamin Watson had 10 catches for a career-high 127 yards and a touchdown in a 31-21 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Watson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) came into the game with 15 catches for 159 yards in the first five games combined, so there is no reason to expect him to have a repeat performance any time soon.

Saints | Josh Hill finds the end zone

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 22:08:48 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill had two receptions for 11 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 game against the Dallas Cowboys. Fellow TE Benjamin Watson had three grabs for 30 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is still not worth using in FantasyScore despite the touchdown. The veteran Watson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is slightly better for fantasy players, but his ceiling is also limited.
