Saints TE Benjamin Watson has been the standout out his position so far in training camp, according to Larry Holder of The Times-Picayune. Offseason fantasy darling Josh Hill has missed time with an undisclosed injury, helping Watson get more 1st-team reps. But Holder writes that Watson "received plenty more opportunities in the passing game even when Hill was healthy" in spring workouts. The 34-year-old TE has always presented good speed and athleticism for his position and has scored 4 TDs among just 39 catches over his 2 Saints seasons. Even if Hill passes Watson on the depth chart once he returns, Watson at least stands as a reason to temper your fantasy expectations for Hill.
The Patriots are re-signing TE Ben Watson, according to ESPN's Field Yates. Watson was surprisingly never activated after serving his 4-game suspension to open the season, and it's unclear exactly what kind of role he'll play for the Pats going forward. There's certainly opportunity, though, on a TE depth chart topped by Matt LaCosse and Ryan Izzo.
The Patriots elected not to activate TE Benjamin Watson by Monday's deadline. That means the veteran hits waivers. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Watson does want to continue playing somewhere. He had, of course, announced his retirement before signing with New England in the offseason. Looks like the Patriots will proceed with Matt LaCosse and Ryan Izzo as their top TEs.
ESPN's Field Yates reports that Patriots TE Ben Watson is not traveling with the team to Washington and will not play in Sunday's game. The team must have decided to use his roster spot for another player. If the Patriots don't activate him by Monday afternoon, though, they would have to release Watson, according to Doug Kyed of NESN. Expect Watson to be back on the roster for the Week 6 Thursday night game against the Giants.
Patriots TE Ben Watson won't play against the Redskins on Sunday, according to ESPN's Field Yates. Watson is eligible to return from his 4-game suspension, so it's unclear if he's not ready to play or if he's not part of New England's current plans. Watson is only worth stashing in deep and TE-premium fantasy leagues.
Patriots TE Ben Watson sustained a concussion in Thursday night's preseason game against the Panthers. It's the 6th documented concussion of his career. Watson is suspended for the first 4 games of the season, though, so he should be ready to go when first eligible in Week 5.
