Ravens | Benjamin Watson pulls down eight balls

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 16:52:03 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson posted eight receptions for 91 yards on his eight targets in Week 2 against Cleveland.

Fantasy Tip: Watson pounded his former team for 11.4 yards per grab. The old man can still get it done, and is worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues if you need help at the tight end position. Joe Flacco always likes to use his tight end.

Ravens | Benjamin Watson listed as No. 2 tight end

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 22:06:09 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson is listed as the No. 2 tight end on the club's depth chart entering the regular season, behind TE Nick Boyle.

Fantasy Tip: Watson registered career highs in catches (74) and receiving yards (825) in 2015, while also matching a career best with six touchdowns, but he's now 36 years old and missed all of last season after enduring a torn Achilles' during the preseason. Given his current standing, he can probably be left on all waiver wires. Nick Boyle doesn't really offer any upside, either.

Ravens | Benjamin Watson accepts pay cut

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 18:21:42 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson agreed to restructure his contract last week, which dropped his base salary from $3 million to $1.25 million, according a source. Watson can make up to $3 million this season if he meets certain incentives.

Fantasy Tip: Watson is expected to compete for the starting tight end job during training camp if he is recovered from the torn Achilles' tendon he suffered in 2016. He has played well in the past but would only be a No. 2 fantasy tight end in most leagues.

Ravens | Benjamin Watson ahead of schedule

Wed, 17 May 2017 06:40:04 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (Achilles') said he's ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn Achilles'. "I'm at the point now where I'm very close," Watson said earlier this month. "I'm able to do pretty much everything to some extent. These last couple stages are very important about getting the strength back. The actual Achilles itself is intact."

Sat, 11 Mar 2017 11:18:17 -0800

Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson may be on the roster bubble after the team agreed to a restructured contract with TE Dennis Pitta. The Ravens would save $3 million in salary cap space if Watson is released.

Ravens | Two Ravens to IR

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 07:00:33 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (Achilles') and CB Kyle Arrington (undisclosed) were placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: The Ravens' depth at tight end has been decimated by injury, and Crockett Gillmore is the last one standing. He's little more than a TE2 in fantasy. Dennis Pitta could resurface into the fantasy spotlight if he has anything left after two major hip injuries.

Ravens | Ben Watson suffers torn Achilles'

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 16:39:43 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (Achilles') left the field after only two plays Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Detroit Lions, and was later diagnosed with a torn Achilles', ending his season.

Fantasy Tip: It's a crushing blow as the Ravens lured Watson away from the New Orleans Saints this offseason with a two-year, $7 million deal. The nature of the injury is such that it is possible they might get no return on investment on the 35-year-old tight end. With Dennis Pitta and Maxx Williams sidelined by injuries, Baltimore is already down to Crockett Gillmore at the position. If Pitta and Williams are unable to heal quickly, Gillmore could be the Week 1 starter and have the same kind of TE2 impact he had last season.

Ravens | Competition helping Maxx Williams

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 17:46:59 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams has looked healthier and stronger during training camp this year, according to beat writer Mike Preston, and Preston believes the added competition from TE Dennis Pitta and TE Benjamin Watson is making Williams a better player.

Fantasy Tip: The added competition may help him improve as a player, but it is also going to eat into Williams' targets and prevent him from being a worthwhile fantasy option. Outside of dynasty leagues, he can be left undrafted.

Ravens | Benjamin Watson adjusting to new team

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 19:14:07 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson said he was still working on his timing after the first day of training camp Thursday, July 28, and at one point, he lined up on the outside in a four-receiver set.

Fantasy Tip: Watson isn't going to be able to duplicate the numbers he put up last year while in New Orleans, and he isn't worth drafting outside of leagues that require two tight ends.
