TE Ben Watson was limited in Thursday's practice, but still expects to play Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns TE Ben Watson (leg) was limited in Thursday's practice, per Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram. Watson missed most of training camp and preseason with an undisclosed leg injury, but expects to be ready for Week against the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: Watson has never been much of a fantasy option, and after setting career highs in 2010 came crashing back down last season, tallying only 410 yards and 2 TDs before concussions ended his season early. His age, injury history and the emergence of Jordan Cameron as the Browns' tight end of the future means his days in the NFL are probably numbered.
