Recent Player News

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 1:36pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Benjamin Watson had just one catch for one yard on two targets in Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Watson was expected to see a higher volume of work with Cameron Meredith and newly-signed Dez Bryant hitting the IR, but he did nothing as Dan Arnold outperformed him. Treat Watson as more of a TE2 heading into Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 7:19pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Benjamin Watson registered three grabs for 62 yards and a touchdown in the Week 9 shootout against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Watson has found the end zone in two of the past three outings and he remains a decent low-end TE1 in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

  • 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.
