Saints | Benjamin Watson to start?

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:15:46 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Benjamin Watson is slated to start at tight end over TE Josh Hill, according to Mike Triplett of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Tip: Watson will still split time with Hill, but he could begin the season as starter primarily because of his experience and blocking abilities. He's also not a bad pass-catcher. However, because this could easily turn into a committee, neither should be considered starting fantasy tight ends.

Saints | New Orleans TE committee likely

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 05:47:58 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill and TE Benjamin Watson will likely be used in a committee to supplement the team's offense after TE Jimmy Graham was traded.

Fantasy Tip: Hill has been pegged as a breakout candidate by some, but this limits that outlook a bit. Hill and Watson are TE2 options in fantasy.

Saints | Josh Hill projected to start for Saints

Wed, 20 May 2015 12:21:24 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill is slated as the starting tight end this season with TE Jimmy Graham now in Seattle. TE Benjamin Watson could give Hill a run for his money, however.

Fantasy Tip: Hill only caught 14 passes in 2014, but five of those were for touchdowns. He should be a mainstay in the Saints' red zone offense even if he doesn't produce a ton between the 20s. Even if he does start, he's still in TE2 territory.

Saints | Jimmy Graham to be game-time decision

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 13:16:45 -0700

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) said he won't know until just before kickoff Sunday, Oct. 19, if he'll play in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions. "I think (coach) Sean (Payton) might try to see how I'm doing on Sunday and maybe work me before the game to see where I'm at," Graham, who was limited and listed as questionable for Sunday, said. "As of right now I don't know." Head coach Sean Payton would not discuss whether Graham could be limited if he plays Sunday. TEs Benjamin Watson and Josh Hill will likely see an increase in snaps if Graham doesn't play.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Graham plays, he's likely to be less than 100 percent, which would make paying $7,900 (15.8% of cap) a pretty big risk at FantasyScore. Hill is the better fantasy bet if Graham doesn't play, and he's very cheap if you're going that route at tight end.
