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."
Related players: Ben Watson, Josh Hill
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.

Week 19 vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Ben Watson caught two-of-three targets for 29 yards in the Saints’ Week 17 loss to the Panthers. Watson, who plans to retire following New Orleans’ playoff run, has not seen more than three targets in his last eight games. He has also not gone over 50 yards receiving in that same span. Ranked as our TE8 for the Divisional Round, avoid Watson in DFS play this weekend. The Saints simply don’t use him.
