Benjamin Watson with one catch in win

Benjamin Watson came down with one catch for 33 yards on one target as the Ravens beat the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Watson is a low-end TE1 at best. While the Ravens like to use the position, with Alex Collins and the return of Danny Woodhead, the opportunities for Watson will be more limited going forward.

Benjamin Watson could miss TNF

Baltimore Ravens beat writer Jamison Hensley is reporting tight end Benjamin Watson (knee) "could miss" Week 8 with a knee injury.

Fantasy Impact

Although he was previously dealing with a calf injury -- he didn't miss any game action -- Watson appeared on the injury report with a knee injury, which sidelined him for both practices this week. As a result, Watson is in danger of missing his first game of the 2017 season. Likely a game-time decision, Watson's fantasy owners should have a backup plan in place in case he draws an inactive designation. Even if he is active, though, Watson is a shot in the dark fantasy option at best on a struggling Ravens offense.

Benjamin Watson has five catches in Ravens loss

Benjamin Watson had five catches for 38 yards against the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Watson is just another tight end in a year full of just another tight ends. He is going to get usage as the Ravens do like to use the tight end, but he's just a low-end streamer as a bye week fill in.

Benjamin Watson expects to play Week 7.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson (knee) is expected to play Week 7.

Fantasy Impact

After practicing the last two days this week -- he is dealing with a knee injury -- Watson is in line to play in Sunday's matchup with the Vikings. While the Minnesota defense is stout, they've surrendered a 28-291-3 stat line to opposing TEs in 2017, presenting a plus matchup for the veteran tight end. Watson is in the TE2 mix for Week 7.

Benjamin Watson hauls in six catches against Bears

Benjamin Watson caught six of eight targets for 28 yards on Sunday against the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

The six catches and eight targets are excellent totals, but the fact that they went for just 28 yards is almost a remarkable exercise in futility. The entire Ravens offense is stagnant, and fantasy owners should want little part of it aside from the running backs. Watson is better left on the free agent wire.
