Ben Watson (leg) will play Sunday against the Eagles. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ben Watson will play in Sunday's game between the Cleveland Browns and the Philadelphia Eagles, Albert Breer of NFL.com reports. Watson is listed as questionable after sitting out preseason with a leg injury. The tight end returned to practice earlier this week. There has been no indication yet just how, exactly, he will be deployed by the Browns.

Analysis: The Browns have been cautious with Watson throughout the preseason. The team went so far as to call him the undisputed starter, indicating that they believe he will be a pivotal part of the offense going forward. With so little practice time, he is a really risky as a fantasy option this week, however. Roll with him if you have to, just understand the risk. Rookie Jordan Cameron is the Browns' No. 2 tight end, but doesn't have any fantasy value at this point.
