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."
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.
NO TE Josh Hill Divisional Round Fantasy Football Outlook
Divisional Round at Minnesota Vikings
Josh Hill caught 3-of-4 targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Wild Card win over the Panthers last Sunday. Hill caught just 16 passes in the regular season but with Carolina shutting down New Orleans' rushing attack, the Saints had to move the ball mostly through the air. Don't expect much production out of Hill this weekend, however. Ranked as our No. 9 TE for the Divisional Round, Hill will face Minnesota's No. 2 ranked defense against tight ends. Avoid him.
