Benjamin Watson paces Ravens in receiving agains Browns

Benjamin Watson caught all eight of his targets for a team leading 91 yards in yesterday's 24-10 victory over the Browns.

Fantasy Impact

This was the exact opposite of Watson's Week 1 performance where he received only one target and didn't have a catch. Watson is going to be hit or miss every week and isn't worth rostering unless you are in super deep leagues, there are better fliers available on waivers.

Benjamin Watson with one target against Bengals

Benjamin Watson had one target but no catches against the Bengals in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

While Joe Flacco likes to throw to the tight end position, the Ravens' goal for the season is to be more run-oriented, making any tight end on the Ravens a risk not worth taking in 2017.

Benjamin Watson has one catch against Dolphins

Benjamin Watson caught one pass for 11 yards in the Ravens' victory over the Dolphins. While not much, it is good to see him back after his injury last preseason.

Fantasy Impact

Watson will be part of a tight end group which, while normally deep, is now extremely shallow due to injury. While Joe Flacco loves to target his tight end, with Watson's age and both his and Flacco's injury concerns, it is best to stay away from any Ravens tight end in the draft unless it is a best ball league.

Benjamin Watson returns to the field after Achilles injury

Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson has returned to the practice field on Tuesday after suffering an Achilles injury last season, according to Ryan Mink of He has been limited to individual drills while nearing the end of his rehab.

Fantasy Impact

Watson steps up just when TE Dennis Pitta goes down for his third hip injury. A 14-year veteran, Watson will more than likely be the leader of the squad. The Ravens still have much depth at TE with Crockett Gillmore, Maxx Williams, Darren Waller and Nick Boyle.

Benjamin Watson 'ahead of schedule' in his rehab

ESPN is reporting Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson (Achilles) is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery from a torn Achilles suffered last preseason.

Fantasy Impact

Although Watson is still recovering from a torn Achilles, he is fully expected to be ready for the start of training camp in July. The 36-year-old tight end, who failed to make his regular season debut with the Ravens in 2016 due to the aforementioned injury, is poised to make an impact in 2017. However, on a loaded Ravens TE depth chart that employs Dennis Pitta, Crockett Gillmore and Maxx Williams, Watson will have to prove he has gas left in the tank to make the roster.
