2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
After failing to reach his vast potential and having several largely unproductive seasons in New England, Watson was a revelation in his first year with the Browns in 2010, catching 68 passes for 763 yards, both career highs, and three touchdowns. Unfortunately, he went back to being his underwhelming self in 2011, as concussion issues plagued him on his way to a 37 reception, 410 yard, two-touchdown season. At this point of his career, Watson figures to more into more of a blocking role with veteran Evan Moore and 2011 4th round pick Jordan Cameron assuming a larger portion of the pass catching duties. Watson is waiver wire material in 2012.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Brees, Watson expected to play for Saints     -- Sun Dec 27 7:00 am --

Both listed as Questionable
Saints TE Ben Watson (knee, questionable) will play today vs. Jags, WR Marques Colston (chest, Q), however, will not, per sources. He's out. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: This is good news for the Saints passing offense. Brees can be in your starting lineup but understand he will be at less than 100%. He remains a QB1 against a porous Jags pass defense. Watson missed practice all week, so he will be difficult to trust as a TE1 but has a plus matchup as well.
Injury Brees, Watson listed as Questionable for Saints     -- Fri Dec 25 7:45 pm --

Brees insists that he'll play
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has been listed as questionable for Sunday's game, according to the team's official injury report on Friday. The Saints said Brees was "limited" in practice on Friday. Colston, Ben Watson, Armstead and Strief did not practice at all. (Times-Picayune)

FF Today's Take: Brees' "Grade 2" tear of the plantar fascia tendon in his right heel should certainly give fantasy owners some concern even though the QB said he is going to play. He'll be a risky QB1 in a plus matchup against a Jaguars defense that's given up the fifth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. Watson needs to be monitored Sunday morning as there's a decent chance he ends up on the Inactive list.
Injury Cooks misses practice Thursday with concussion     -- Thu Dec 10 5:40 pm --

Injury likely suffered in Wednesday practice
The New Orleans Saints might be heading into Tampa with a beaten and battered offense. WR Brandin Cooks, who leads the Saints in all main receiving categories, missed practice Thursday due to a concussion, a new injury for the receiver. In addition, LT Terron Armstead (knee), RG Jahri Evans (ankle) and RT Zach Strief (shoulder) all missed practice due to injury. (The Advocate)

FF Today's Take: The blog makes no mention of Willie Snead, who missed last week with a calf injury, or Mark Ingram, who was placed on IR on Wednesday. Cooks has virtually no shot at playing against the Bucs this weekend after suffering a mid-week concussion, meaning Ben Watson and Snead (if he can play) candidates for 10-plus targets. Especially after the loss of Ingram and (in all likelihood) Cooks, Tampa Bay is looking like a solid streaming D/ST option this week.
