Granted, the Patriots haven't had their bye yet, and several teams have, so his ranking would go down a bit. But nonetheless he is and will be among the leaders at the position. So you're going to have to be a bit more patient with him. Brady has looked his way, and he will put up #'s. I expect him to be a top 5-6 TE in fantasy points, as I expected prior to the season. (Quick note: he's averaging more yds receiving per game than Antonio Gates)
There is no doubt that Watson is the most talented pass catcher on the team. They've been running a lot of heavy sets, with 3 TEs and such. The defenses are just collapsing and it is difficult for Watson to get into the open field and make those small secondary players looks silly.
You have to think New England is going to develop as the season progresses...maybe Watson will turn in his best games during the Fantasy playoffs which include games against Miami and Houston!
