Browns place Ben Watson on IR

The Browns will place TE Ben Watson on injured reserve today after three concussions.

Fantasy Impact: 

Fantasy owners who need a TE should give Evan Moore strong consideration. Amongst the top 40 TEs in terms of total targets, Moore is #8 in fantasy points per target. Watson was seeing 5.5 targets per game, so if Moore sees an additional 4.0 targets per game (bringing his total to 6.5 per game), he should produce around 8.6 fantasy points per game, which are TE5 numbers. Keep in mind, Moore's stats may be a bit skewed because of his high TD rate (12.5% of his catches are for TDs), but he's a talented TE and has an opportunity to make some noise over the final two weeks of the fantasy season.
