Recent Player News

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 4:20pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Benjamin Watson hauled in five receptions for 71 yards on six targets in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: The 37-year-old is proving he still has plenty left in the tank, racking up at least three receptions in each of his three outings with 12 grabs, 134 yards and 15 targets through three games. Still, his lack of scores make him more of a TE2 in most leagues heading into Week 4 against the Giants.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 11:49pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Benjamin Watson caught all four of his targets for 44 yards in Week 1 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: There will probably be better days ahead for the ageless wonder, although his level of activity in this game should probably be the expectation moving forward. Given the way the Cleveland Browns typically play their safeties, Watson could be in for one of his better games this season in Week 2.

  • Posted: 3/28/2018 9:24am ET

    Free-agent TE Benjamin Watson (Ravens) agreed to a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints Wednesday, March 28. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Watson will have some fantasy luster in the offense, but his upside is limited to a mix-and-match TE2.

  • Posted: 3/27/2018 1:42pm ET

    Free-agent TE Benjamin Watson (Ravens) visited the New Orleans Saints Tuesday, March 27, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Any target of Drew Brees is a worthwhile fantasy asset, but Watson would need to stave off Coby Fleener and Josh Hill, among others, in order to become fantasy relevant in the Big Easy.

  • Posted: 12/23/2017 5:14pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson caught five passes for 40 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Watson has been more involved in the passing game over the last few weeks and has two touchdowns in his last four games. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues next week.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 2:25pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson caught four passes for 74 yards and one touchdown against the Cleveland Browns in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Watson had his more productive game since Week 2 and caught all four of the passes thrown to him against the Browns. He could have a solid role in the passing game next week and may be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues because of the matchup.

  • Posted: 11/27/2017 9:39pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson caught three passes for 29 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Watson has caught all four of his targets over the last two weeks but has been held to under 50 yards in every game since Week 2. He can be a No. 2 tight end in deeper leagues but is not a great starting option.

  • 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.
