Saints TE Ben Watson snags only three in Sunday win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

New Orleans Saints tight end Benjamin Watson caught three passes on three targets for 30 yards in the Week 4 win over the Cowboys.

Watson participated in 64 of 73 offensive snaps (88 percent), according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, compared to 34 snaps for backups tight end Josh Hill. It was Hill, however, who hauled in a 3-yard touchdown pass from Drew Brees in the first quarter.

The veteran has consistently out-snapped and out-produced Hill, but with only 12 total catches for 103 yards through the first four weeks, he has not proven to be much of a Fantasy option.

Luke McCown-run offense benefits Saints TE Ben Watson
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Saints tight end Benjamin Watson caught four passes on four targets for 42 yards in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

Watson continues to dominate the workload at tight end, garnering 86 percent of the Saints' offensive snaps, compared to 40 percent for Josh Hill, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

With Luke McCown starting at quarterback in Week 3, the Saints featured an offense that was heavily predicated on short passes, which suited Watson well. If McCown starts again in Week 4 against the Cowboys, it would not be surprising to see the team take a similar approach, which could bode well for Watson's prospects.

Still, with only nine catches for 73 total yards on the season, Watson is probably not a high-upside play.

Sean Payton: TE Josh Hill 'is a player we value a lot'
by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

Saints coach Sean Payton on Wednesday talked up tight end Josh Hill, who should get more opportunities with the trade of Jimmy Graham to Seattle. "Josh Hill is a player we value a lot," Payton said, per the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Hill, 24, is a 6-5, 250-pounder who caught five touchdowns last season. He finished with 14 catches for 176 yards while playing every game.

Hill and Benjamin Watson, 34, are the team's top tight ends following Graham's departure.

Saints get offensive contributions
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Saints got myriad contributions in their Week 15 win in Chicago. Among them, wideout Nick Toon caught all four of his targets for 43 yards, but lost a fumble. Running back Khiry Robinson ran three times for 10 yards and caught two passes for 10 yards.

Fullback Erik Lorig had a 1-yard carry. Tight end Benjamin Watson added a 5-yard grab.

They'll all face Atlanta on Sunday.

Saints pass-catchers contribute little in lopsided loss
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Several Saints skill position players made minimal contributions in a blowout loss Sunday to Carolina. The only difference for tight end Benjamin Watson is that one of his two catches for eight yards went for a 7-yard score in the fourth quarter.

The most prolific of the bunch was Nick Toon, who caught four passes for 45 yards. Travaris Cadet had two receptions for 13 yards and a run for five yards. Kenny Stills caught three for 23 yards while Joseph Morgan added two for 23 yards.
