Cleveland Browns tight end Benjamin Watson was not a major factor in the Cleveland offensive attack during the Browns 23-20 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Fantasy football players relying on Watson were surely betting on the tight end to score a touchdown as opposed to putting up big yardage numbers.
Watson finished the game with just two receptions for 14 yards and no touchdowns. These numbers came in just under the modest Numberfire.com projection for this week's game which had Watson catching 2.25 passes for 26.42 yards and 0.2 touchdowns.
Anyone fortunate enough to see that projection from Numberfire likely stayed away from Watson this week as the big fella underperformed from a Fantasy standpoint. Quarterback Colt McCoy only completed 16 passes on the day, so Watson remains a target when McCoy is on target.
Things won't get any easier for the Cleveland offense as they host the Baltimore Ravens next Sunday. With only two touchdown receptions on the season, Watson will continue to try to find the end zone next week, ground he hasn't touched with the ball since the loss to Tennessee on October 2nd.
