  • Saints' Ben Watson: Scores against Atlanta
    By RotoWire Staff

    Watson was targeted 10 times during Sunday's win over the Falcons, collecting six catches for 59 yards and a touchdown. "Can't repeat the past," Jay Gatsby, and maybe Ben Watson, cried out incredulously. "Why of course you can!" Unlike The Great Gatsby, Watson was not only able to return to his past self, he improved upon it. At age 35, Watson set or tied career highs in targets, catches, yards and touchdowns in 2015. He finished the season having been targeted eight or more times in five of the Saints' last six games. With this level of production, it wouldn't be a total surprise if New Orleans resigned Watson to a short-term deal as the roster lacks an obvious successor. Josh Hill, a fantasy sleeper to start the year, managed just 16 catches in backup duty.

  • Saints' Ben Watson: Held to one catch
    By RotoWire Staff

    Watson (knee) caught one of two targets for five yards in Sunday's 38-27 win over the Jaguars. It's a disappointing stat line for Watson, especially considering that Drew Brees passes for 412 yards and three scores Sunday. Most of Brees' production went to Brandin Cooks, Willie Snead and Travaris Cadet, although backup TE Michael Hoomanawanui caught a touchdown in the first quarter. We'll have to check on Watson's snap count, but it's reasonable to assume he didn't play as much as usual with his knee injury (he missed a lot of practice time during the week). Assuming he's healthy enough to play next week, he'll have a decent matchup against the Falcons.

  • Saints' Ben Watson: Active Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Watson (knee) is listed as active Sunday against the Jaguars, Evan Woodbery of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Watson was a resident of the trainer's room rather than the practice field this week due to a knee injury. Expect the tight end to benefit from Marques Colston's (chest) absence, though Watson's targets may not uphold their standard with Drew Brees (foot) ailing, which could result in Matt Flynn or Garrett Grayson making an appearance.

  • Saints' Ben Watson: Expected to play Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Watson (knee) is expected to play Sunday against the Jaguars, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Watson is officially listed as questionable after not practicing at all Wednesday and Thursday, but he'll be out there Sunday and could continue to be a popular option for quarterback Drew Brees, as the tight end has been targeted 39 times in the last four games.

  • Saints' Ben Watson: Listed as questionable
    By RotoWire Staff

    Watson (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. It's not clear if Watson was able to get on the practice field Friday, but he is still listed as questionable despite not participating Wednesday or Thursday, which leaves his status for Week 16 entirely in question. If Watson does take the field Sunday, and starting quarterback Drew Brees (foot) does as well, Watson figures to see plenty of balls his way after tallying a total of 39 targets over his previous four games.
