Benjamin Watson TE NO 3 Months

Watson (groin) caught five passes on seven targets for 43 yards in Sunday's win against the Bucs.

With Jimmy Graham (shoulder) exiting early, Watson and Josh Hill picked up the slack at the tight end position, combining for eight grabs and 96 yards. Early reports are that graham's injury is not expected to be anything too serious, particularly with an extra week to heal with the Saints on bye in Week 6, but Watson could have some deeper league value if Graham were to miss any time with the injury - though he'd likely share the receiving duties with Hill, limiting the upside of both.
