by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Many Saints chip in to win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Several Saints made their presences felt in a rout of Tampa Bay on Sunday. The most significant was running back Khiry Robinson, who finished with a a game-high 50 yards on 12 carries. Fellow running back Mark Ingram added 20 yards on three attempts while fullback Jed Collins had three yards on two tries and one reception for two yards.

Running back Darren Sproles chipped in with two catches for 30 yards, tight end Josh Hill caught a pass for 8 yards and tight end Benjamin Watson snagged one for 7 yards.


Saints backup pass catchers fail to make an impact Week 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Saints WR Lance Moore, TE Benjamin Watson, WR Kenny Stills and WR Robert Meachem didn't do much Week 16 against the Panthers.

Moore played the biggest role, catching three passes for 47 yards. Watson caught both his targets for 26 yards. Stills caught two passes for 23 yards. Meachem also caught two passes for 14 yards. They'll take on the Buccaneers Week 17.


Saints get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2013) The Saints got a slew of offensive contributions in their Week 14 win over Carolina. Among them, receiver Kenny Stills caught two passes for 22 yards and tight end Benjamin Watson had a 20-yard reception.

Wideout Robert Meachem caught one of three targets for 7 yards, adding a 4-yard run. Fullback Jed Collins caught a 4-yard pass and carried once for zero yards. Running back Mark Ingram ran three times for 4 yards, and running back Khiry Robinson had a 6-yard carry.


Benjamin Watson scores in return


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2013)  Saints tight end Benjamin Watson was back on the field in Week 12 against the Falcons, after sitting out the previous game with a concussion. Watson had just one catch for 1 yard, but he made it count with his second touchdown of the season in a 17-13 win.

Watson is just the second or third tight end on the team's depth chart at this point, as he enters Week 13 against the Seahawks with 13 catches for 161 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games. 


Benjamin Watson makes his return Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2013) Saints tight end Benjamin Watson (concussion) is active for Week 12 against the Falcons, after he missed last week's game. Watson was considered questionable coming into the game. 

Saints have long list players listed as questionable Week 12


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2013) Saints guard Ben Grubbs (neck), defensive end Tyrunn Walker (knee), guard Jahri Evans (ankle), cornerback Chris Carr (hip, back, hamstring), cornerback Rod Sweeting (hip), safety Kenny Vaccaro (concussion), tight end Benjamin Watson (concussion) and defensive tackle Akiem Hicks (back) were all listed as questionable for Thursday's game at Atlanta.

Saints in good shape for game against 49ers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) The Saints are fairly healthy heading into their game Sunday against San Francisco. All but defensive end Tyrunn Walker (knee), tight end Benjamin Watson and safety Kenny Vaccaro, both with concussions, are healthy scratches among their inactives.

Included are tackle Terron Armstead, quarterback Ryan Griffin, running back Khiry Robinson and cornerback Rod Sweeting.


Saints rule out two with concussions


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) The Saints ruled out a pair of players for Week 11 against the 49ers, after they were unable to overcome their concussions. Tight end Benjamin Watson and safety Kenny Vaccaro were both ruled out, after being unable to practice throughout the week. 

Ben Watson leaves with concussion


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Saints tight end Benjamin Watson suffered a concussion in the third quarter of the game vs. Dallas. Watson fell hard to the turf after getting a potential touchdown pass knocked out of his hands.

Watson finished with a 5-yard catch on three targets.


Saints' role players hardly factor Week 9


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Saints fullback Jed Collins, tight end Josh Hill, wide receiver Nick Toon and tight end Benjamin Watson were hardly factors on the stat sheet during a 26-20 loss Week 9 at N.Y. Jets.

Collins had one carry for 7 yards, while Hill had one carry for minus-8 yards. Toon was targeted four times and had no catches. Watson, Collins and Hill all were targeted once but had no receptions.

Toon had the best chance to make an impact Week 9, but he couldn't haul in a pass that would have likely resulted in a 51-yard touchdown in the first half.

The Saints are back in action Week 10 vs. Dallas.


Benjamin Watson steps up for Jimmy Graham


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2013) Though Saints tight end Jimmy Graham played enough to score two touchdowns Week 8 against the Bills, he wasn't on the field as much as usual because of a partially torn plantar fascia. But veteran tight end Benjamin Watson helped fill the void, making good on all three of his targets for 45 yards.

Watson had a season-high 61 yards on three catches when Graham suffered the injury Week 6 at New England. He's averaging 53.0 yards in his last two games after averaging 12.3 in his previous four.

Graham will be limited by this injury for the foreseeable future, so Watson could play a bigger role in the Saints' passing game going forward. He'll look to follow up this performance Week 9 at the Jets.


Saints get minor production from several role players


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) The Saints received minor offensive contributions from a few role players Week 6 against the Patriots.

Former New England tight end Benjamin Watson caught three of the four passes thrown his way for 61 yards. Fullback Jed Collins had one carry for one yard and one catch for a 3-yard gain. Wide receiver Nick Toon was targeted four times and caught a 7-yard pass from Drew Brees in the first quarter for his only catch of the day. Robert Meachem was targeted only once and was held without a grab.

Ben Watson scores first touchdown as Saint


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2013) Saints tight end Benjamin Watson got wide open on a play-action fake and scored his first touchdown of the season against Miami. The 4-yard score from Drew Brees was Watson's only catch of the night; he was targeted twice.

Watson has caught at least two touchdown passes in each of the past eight years. He'll go for another Week 5 at Chicago.


Benjamin Watson, Jed Collins each catch a pass


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2013) Saints tight end Benjamin Watson caught quarterback Drew Brees' first pass of the game for a 14-yard gain Week 3 against the Cardinals and then did nothing the rest of the way. Fullback Jed Collins' production was similarly lacking. He caught one pass for 5 yards.

Benjamin Watson makes a contribution


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/8/2013) Saints tight end Benjamin Watson, who's second on the depth chart to Jimmy Graham, carved out a role for himself Week 1 against the Falcons, catching three passes for 31 yards to Graham's four for 45. He was targeted just three times to Graham's seven, though, and didn't get any looks from quarterback Drew Brees in the end zone.

Watson will again try to squeeze his way into a crowded passing attack Week 2 at Tampa Bay.


Saints sign TE Watson


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/18/2013) The Saints have added tight end Ben Watson. The veteran played 83 percent of the snaps with the Browns last year and had a solid season with 49 catches for 501 yards. He's expected to serve as the No. 2 tight end behind Jimmy Graham.

Watson could be looking for work


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/11/2013) The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that tight end Ben Watson is a free agents, and it's doubtful he will be back in Cleveland in 2013. Watson played 83 percent of the snaps (the Browns often used two tight ends), and had a solid season with 49 catches. The concern is he's 32 with a history of concussions. He played all 16 games in 2012, but missed three games in 2011 with head injuries.
