Ben Watson is listed as questionable on the Cleveland Browns injury report with a leg injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ben Watson is listed as questionable on the Cleveland Browns injury report with a leg injury, according to Scott Petrak. Watson had missed time this preseason with the injury, but he still has a chance to play on Sunday when the Browns take on Philadelphia Eagles. Brandon Weeden will be making his first career start for Cleveland and will need all the help he can get.

Fantasy Impact: Ben Watson does not have much fantasy value, even as Cleveland's starting tight end. With Brandon Weeden calling the shots, the Browns' passing offense figures to be limited throughout the season. With the Browns listing Watson as questionable for Sunday, he cannot be trusted in fantasy lineups, especially against the Eagles' defense.
