Cleveland Browns tight end Benjamin Watson was held out of the end zone once again this week along along with the rest of his teammates as the Browns lost 13-12 to the St. Louis Rams. Quarterback Colt McCoy did complete three of his 20 passes to Watson for 30 total yards on the day.
Watson needs touchdown catches to bring value to fantasy players since the 30 receiving yards today match his yardage average for the season. Watson came into the game with 303 yard receiving yards on 25 receptions with just two touchdowns.
So the trend continues, as McCoy likes to utilize Watson in the short passing game. The Browns just need to make more trips deep inside their opponent's territory so those short passes can be caught by Watson in the end zone. The Browns had two trips inside the red zone against St. Louis, but both drives stalled forcing Cleveland to settle for short field goals.
