Recent Player News

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 6:52pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson finished with seven catches for 41 yards in a 23-20 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Watson is typically good for a handful of catches, but they are mainly of the dink-and-dump variety. He has topped 50 receiving yards just once this year, and he is a low-upside TE2.

  • Posted: 10/26/2017 4:23pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (knee) is active for the team's Week 8 game Thursday, Oct. 26, opposite the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Watson has some streaming appeal here, as Mike Wallace (concussion) is out. In addition, Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) and Breshad Perriman (concussion) are both playing through injury as well, so there's a decent chance Joe Flacco will be looking at Watson often. He would be more of a desperation play, however, and is better suited for formats that utilize two tight ends.

  • Posted: 10/25/2017 5:23pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (knee, calf) could very possibly miss his first action of the season in the team's Week 8 game Thursday, Oct. 26, against the Miami Dolphins. He's been playing through his calf injury the past couple of weeks, and he's missed the last two days of practice as a result of his recent knee ailment. It's exactly why the club signed TE Gavin Escobar Monday, Oct. 23.

    Huddle Up: The Ravens have a boatload of injuries right now on offense, making it very difficult to predict who will end up providing useful numbers for fantasy owners on Thursday night. In fact, they're shaping up to have about four game-time decisions overall, making this a tricky situation that won't have further clarity until right before kickoff. Additionally, Baltimore will be facing a tough Miami defense, so this simply may be a situation to avoid.

  • Posted: 10/25/2017 1:29pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 25, and he is considered questionable for Week 8 against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Watson is a veteran, so the team knows what he can do even without practice time. With Maxx Williams, it's important for Watson to be ready and the team might have simply been preserving him to avoid having him aggravate his injury. Still, for fantasy purposes, it's best to leave him reserved if you have healthier alternatives.

  • Posted: 10/24/2017 3:08pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens Benjamin Watson (knee) put in a limited practice Tuesday, Oct. 24.

    Huddle Up: We all know Joe Flacco doesn't like throwing deep, at least, he seemingly doesn't trust himself to throw deep. Watson is a nice, short safety blanket for Flacco and was one of the few bright spots for the Ravens last week. The Miami Dolphins have been subpar versus the tight end position, too. That being said, Watson isn't quite a TE1, but he's a serviceable bye-week replacement.

  • Posted: 10/23/2017 4:29pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (knee) was limited during the team's walkthrough Monday, Oct. 23.

    Huddle Up: Watson should be able to play and could see a decent amount of targets because of the injuries the team has at wide receiver. He has posted at least 50 yards only once this season and is not a great option for fantasy owners this week.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 1:43pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson caught five passes for 38 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Watson has caught at least five passes in three of his last four games but has not posted more than 43 yards in a game since Week 2. Watson should be owned in all leagues but is not a great starting option next week.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 6:19am ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (knee) is expected to play in Week 7's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Watson was listed as questionable on the injury report after putting in a limited practice session Friday, Oct. 20. He only has 30 receiving yards over the last two contests and has a challenging matchup this afternoon, so he should be avoided in most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 10/20/2017 1:11pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 20, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Watson has a chance to play this week, but owners will need to check the inactive list before deciding on their lineups. He has been held to 30 yards over the last two games and can be benched if owners have better options available.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 10:55am ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (knee) missed practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: As noted in the Mike Wallace tip, there are hopefully better options in your lineup than starting any Raven. Most of them are injured and they face a tough test in the Chicago Bears this week. Try to stay away from Watson and company if possible.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 3:08pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson caught six passes for 28 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Watson has been limited to 30 yards over the last two games but has been targeted at least eight times in three games this season. He should be owned in all leagues but is not a weekly starting option.

  • Posted: 10/6/2017 4:26pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (calf) is expected to play in Week 5 even though he is listed as questionable for the game.

    Huddle Up: Watson has caught at least five passes in two of the last three games and has been targeted 17 times during that span. He is facing an Oakland Raiders defense that has had problems at times against tight ends. Watson could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 11:30am ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (calf) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Watson only practiced once last week and was active for Week 4, so he should be able to play in Week 5 as long as he practices Friday, Oct. 6. He has been targeted at least six times in two of the last three games and has a solid role in the passing game. He probably can be considered a No. 2 tight end in most leagues and can stay on the bench this week.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 6:47pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson posted five receptions for 43 yards in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on six targets.

    Huddle Up: Watson was busy in the pass game, as was Nick Boyle, as the Ravens tried to get the tight ends more incorporated in the offense. Despite the uptick in targets and catches, only fantasy owners in the deepest leagues should pay any mind to Watson or Boyle heading into Week 5 against the Raiders.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 12:40pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (head) cleared concussion protocol and is back in the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Good news for Watson owners, who can have him in their lineups moving forward, barring further injuries or setbacks.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 11:21am ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (head) left the team's Week 4 game early and is going through the concussion protocol.

    Huddle Up: Watson will have to be cleared before he is able to play again, so he may miss the rest of the Week 4 game. He should be considered a No. 2 tight end in most leagues when he is healthy.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 5:39am ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (calf) is expected to play in Week 4's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Watson was a full practice participant Friday, Sept. 29, and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Although he could see a decent number of targets versus the Steelers, he should be viewed as nothing more than a low-end TE1 because of Baltimore's shaky quarterback play this season.

  • Posted: 9/29/2017 12:09pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (calf) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 29, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Watson could be a game-time decision since he practiced only once this week, so owners should check the inactive list. He was limited to 12 yards last week but did reach the end zone. Owners probably can find better options to use and can avoid Watson.

  • Posted: 9/28/2017 10:23am ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (calf) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: The next two days will be telling for Watson. If he doesn't practice tomorrow then there's a good chance he'll be sidelined this week, in which case Nick Boyle would make for a sleeper tight end. Neither are solid TE1 options, however.

  • Posted: 9/27/2017 2:06pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (calf) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Watson was the lone bright spot for the Ravens last week with his touchdown. He tallied eight catches for 91 yards the week before, too. For those hurting at tight end, Watson is a serviceable start.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 4:52pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson posted eight receptions for 91 yards on his eight targets in Week 2 against Cleveland.

    Huddle Up: Watson pounded his former team for 11.4 yards per grab. The old man can still get it done, and is worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues if you need help at the tight end position. Joe Flacco always likes to use his tight end.

  • Posted: 9/6/2017 10:06pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson is listed as the No. 2 tight end on the club's depth chart entering the regular season, behind TE Nick Boyle.

    Huddle Up: Watson registered career highs in catches (74) and receiving yards (825) in 2015, while also matching a career best with six touchdowns, but he's now 36 years old and missed all of last season after enduring a torn Achilles' during the preseason. Given his current standing, he can probably be left on all waiver wires. Nick Boyle doesn't really offer any upside, either.

  • Posted: 6/13/2017 6:21pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson agreed to restructure his contract last week, which dropped his base salary from $3 million to $1.25 million, according a source. Watson can make up to $3 million this season if he meets certain incentives.

    Huddle Up: Watson is expected to compete for the starting tight end job during training camp if he is recovered from the torn Achilles' tendon he suffered in 2016. He has played well in the past but would only be a No. 2 fantasy tight end in most leagues.
