New Saints TE Benjamin Watson looks like an obvious fill-in for David Thomas. He could do a little pass-catching, a little blocking and maybe even line up at fullback here and there. Watson can actually still be a sneaky offensive threat even at age 32. He caught 49 balls for 501 yards and three touchdowns last year with the Cleveland Browns. He probably won't be targeted as often in New Orleans, but he could still score a few times as Thomas did in the past. (The Times-Picayune)
FF Today's Take:Any potential target for Drew Bees is worth noting and while Jimmy Graham will command attention at the position, Watson is a capable tight end and will be a fantasy factor should Graham miss games due to injury.
