Ben Watson is questionable with a leg injury. We break down the fantasy implications.
Ben Watson (leg) is listed as questionable for the Brown's Week 1 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Analysis: To make matters worse, the Browns also have listed Cameron Jordan, Cleveland's TE2, as questionable with a groin injury. Both of these tight ends are going to be game-time decisions and you'd have to be in a pretty deep league to consider starting either against the Eagles. Brandon Weeden had an ugly August and he is arguably one of the worst quarterbacks to start in fantasy football. Brad Childress is going to have to get creative in distributing the ball around, so if Watson is out, Greg Little would be a decent bet to see double-digit targets. Again, there's absolutely no reason to play any tight end from Cleveland. There are still 29 other teams to choose from for Sunday and Monday.
