Ben Watson-sleeper TE

He will be the recieving TE for Tom Brady who likes to look for a TE in the red zone. If you don't have a top TE and have a roster spot, pick him up.

I was just wondering what's the TE situation in NE, I drafted Daniel Graham with the thoughts of a lot of upside but recently I've heard a ton of news about Watson. I guess he's 6'6" with 4.4 speed? I'm a little concered with what I should do. Currently I have Graham and Cooley as my TE's and Watson is avaiable on the WW.

Yeah I also drafted Daniel Graham in a couple of leagues. Do you really think he will translate into a decent FF TE? If so what is your reasoning?

I'm not sure how much yardage he'll get but he could score quite a few TDs. Graham went off like a house on fire at the beginning of last year catching like 5 TDs in the first 4 games and then not doing crap afterwards.

Graham and Fauria combined for 9 TD's and 558 yards. I think Ben is a much better option than either of these 2 and could match the TD totals easily and possibly improve on the yardage if NE's def slips a little due to losing their 2 inside LB's. IF Ben Hits about 10 TD's and 6-800 yards, that's a nice year for a guy who is on most WW's.

He was actually drafted in both of my money leagues and I think your estimate is assuming that Graham wouldn't get any TD looks, which I think he will. Watson may have 4-500yds and 6TDs.

If he gets 400 yards and 6 TD's that would make him worse* as a recieving TE than Graham was last year. I think he will do better as a recieving TE. I think Graham may catch 2 TD's but Ben will get somewhere around 10 this year.

*edit- worse or the same as Graham

500 yards and 7 td's is optimistic.
