Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 4 vs DAL (3 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)

For the second straight week, Watson caught all of his targets. His short routes were success outside of being stopped short of the first down marker on a third down crossing route. With Josh Hill getting the goal line touchdown, Watson's upside was limited this week.

2015 Week 3 vs CAR (4 / 4 / 42 / 0 rec)

Watson's biggest day of the the young season began with a ten yard out route late in the first quarter to move the chains. The ball went back to the veteran right end on the next play, a short pass to the right flat for three yards. Watson caught a 20 yard seam route on a third-and-long that initially reached first down yardage, but was overturned upon review and fell one yard short. Late in the third quarter, he found space underneath the defense as a checkdown option for eight yards, but coughed up the ball upon being hit by Thomas Davis. He caught all four targets, proving mostly reliable until surrendering the fumble. Watson remains a low-end TE2.

2015 Week 2 vs TB (4 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)

Watson got his hands on the ball for the first time with five minutes to play in the third quarter. It was a play-action dumpoff into the right flat that picked up four yards. He also caught a short dumpoff for eight yards in New Orleans' no-huddle attack over the middle of the field. Plays are obviously not being called for him, as Watson is nothing more than a safety valve.

2015 Week 1 vs ARI (5 / 3 / 19 / 0 rec)

Watson began his day by moving the chains on an eight-yard out route late in the first quarter. He ran a crossing route for a gain of seven on his next catch before stumbling out of bounds. Watson again worked underneath the defense for a gain of four across the field near the end of the first half, and didn't haul in a pass thereafter. Watson was nothing more than an afterthought offensively, as it was clear that Brees never looked in his direction early in his progressions. He offers more real-life value than in fantasy, and the lack of a target to Josh Hill says as much about the New Orleans utilization of the TE position as there is to know.
