Cleveland Browns tight end Ben Watson is among 13 inactive players for the team's third preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland. Watson also missed last week's game against the Green Bay Packers. Watson is Cleveland's clear-cut, No. 1 tight end, so the team is likely taking precautionary measures. He had issues with concussions throughout the 2011 season.
Analysis: Despite being Cleveland's starting tight end, Ben Watson doesn't present a ton of fantasy value, healthy or not. With rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden starting for the Browns, there will likely be an adjustment period for the entire passing offense. Weeden has not looked sharp at all in the preseason, and that could definitely affect Watson's fantasy value if and when he makes it back onto the field. Unless you're in a deep league, avoid Watson.
