High-Variance Players: TE Ben Watson - Footballguys

The Footballguys staff discusses the high side and low side of Ben Watson

When August rolls around, the fantasy football community usually reaches a consensus on most players. Ben Watson isn't one of those players. While he's averaging somewhere around TE22, he has been ranked between 9 and 27 at his position. What are your thoughts on him? Is he underrated or overrated? Or neither?

Daniel Simpkins: He’s underrated. I’m seeing him go undrafted in some leagues and that is a big mistake. I know Watson is not the player he once was, but in that high-octane offense and with the familiarity that he already has in it, I think he’ll silence the doubters once again. Tight end is a position in which veteran savvy and an understanding of concepts can make you serviceable. Jason Witten and Antonio Gates are great examples of guys that folks thought were too old to be playing, yet continued to produce right up until calling it quits. Watson strikes me as a similar case.
