  • Ravens' Ben Watson: Not targeted
    By RotoWire Staff

    Watson was not targeted during Sunday's 39-38 loss to Pittsburgh. Watson was on the field for 33 of Baltimore's 64 offensive snaps, but that was only good enough to tie for second among the team's tight ends with Maxx Williams, and he was eight behind Nick Boyle. Watson is the best receiving tight end on a team that goes heavy in its formations. Still, the veteran has seemed lost in the shuffle at times, failing to top 45 yards receiving in any game since Week 2. The trend is moving downward, but the good news is Watson takes on his Week 2 opponent, the Browns, this Sunday.

  • Watson caught three of five targets for 24 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Lions. Sunday marked the first time since before the bye that Watson saw five-or-more targets from quarterback Joe Flacco. Watson responded with another multi-reception outing and added his third touchdown of the year. Nick Boyle's ability as a run blocker has a slight impact on Watson's snap counts and Danny Woodhead's return cuts down on Watson's targets between the 20s. Watson has a tough matchup on the docket next week against Pittsburgh's defense that is among the league's best in slowing down opposing tight ends.

  • Ravens' Ben Watson: Catches three passes
    By RotoWire Staff

    Watson snagged all three of his targets for 29 yards in Monday's 23-16 win over Houston. It was the fourth time this season that Watson caught every pass that has come his way. The veteran tight end gets plenty of work, 41 snaps on Monday, as a backup in Baltimore's ball-control offense, but Watson hasn't topped 45 yards receiving since Week 2 and has scored just once since Week 3. His talents don't shine as brightly in Baltimore's last-place pass offense.

  • Watson caught his lone target for a 33-yard gain in Sunday's 23-0 win over the Packers. Watson was left wide open across the middle on the second snap of the third quarter. He otherwise was all but invisible, though fellow tight ends Nick Boyle and Maxx Williams -- three combined catches for eight yards -- didn't fare much better. The long gain and the lack of volume both seem like aberrations, as Watson drew at least four targets in each of the previous six games, most recently catching seven of 10 targets for 41 yards in a loss to Tennessee right before Baltimore's bye in Week 10. He'll take aim at the Texans on Monday Night Football in Week 12.

  • Watson caught seven of 10 targets for 41 yards in Sunday's loss to the Titans. The 10 targets were a season-high, but Watson still had a low yardage output. According to, Watson's average depth of target is just 6.90 yards downfield, which is a low mark that confirms he's rarely running the type of routes that lead to big plays. Watson remains a staple of the offense, but Baltimore's hesitance to use the veteran beyond check-down-type routes puts a cap on his yardage output.
