Payton: Saints need to get better at TE

Times-Picayune - [Full Article]

The New Orleans Saints had an uncharacteristically poor offensive performance in Sunday's win over the Cleveland Browns, but when breaking down the issues on Monday, coach Sean Payton called out one position in particular.

"We have to be better at the tight end position, that's for sure," Payton said while listing the problems with the offense. "You see that on tape, all right, and we'll get that all cleaned up."

Fantasy Impact:

Thus far, Watson has seven catches for 63 yards. He nearly had a two-yard touchdown on Sunday, but Brees overthrew him in the end zone. But as the story pointed out, it's not just receiving numbers, it's also blocking—the Saints are last in the NFL in rushing yards.
