Benjamin Watson to retire

Benjamin Watson announced that he will be stepping away from football.

Fantasy Impact

After 15 years, four different teams, and one Super Bowl ring Benjamin Watson will retire from football. The former Patriots first-rounder will finish his career with 547 receptions for 6,058 yards (17th all-time) and 44 touchdowns (13th all-time) and will be best remembered for his stints in New England and New Orleans.

Benjamin Watson has decent game in playoff loss

Benjamin Watson caught three of his four targets for 38 yards in the Patriots' Wild Card loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Watson made some nice plays, but ultimately had a quiet day as far as fantasy football is concerned. The 39-year-old heads to free agency with what is likely a lukewarm market at best.

Benjamin Watson quiet in Week 17

Benjamin Watson caught his only target for four yards in the Patriots' Week 17 loss to the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Watson has still operated as the starting tight end for the Patriots down the stretch, but has not been a viable fantasy option. Since the departure of Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots simply have not utilized the tight end position much. Watson has little fantasy appeal heading into the playoffs.

Benjamin Watson hauls in three balls in division win

Benjamin Watson caught all three of his targets for 15 yards in the Patriots' Week 16 win over the Bills.

Fantasy Impact

Watson has generally been the primary receiving tight end, but the Patriots have largely used the positional group as blockers this season. There is very little fantasy appeal in Watson for Week 17 or playoffs.

Benjamin Watson quiet in loss

Benjamin Watson caught one of his three targets for seven yards in the Patriots' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

Watson has been an underwhelming fantasy option in a role that could have been valuable this season. He should be on waivers in most leagues and has little fantasy appeal for the remainder of this season.
