According to Saints beat writer Larry Holder, Drew Brees stated "adamantly" that Ben Watson is the Saints number one tight end.

What It Means:

The Saints will mainly run three wide receiver sets with Brandin Cooks, Marques Colston, and Brandon Coleman at wide receiver with Watson at tight end. Watson will attempt to fill the shoes of the departed Jimmy Graham.

Watson ranked 41st, among tight ends with at least 30 targets, with a 0.34 Reception Net Expected Points per target last season. Our algorithms project Watson to finish the year with 39 receptions, 338 receiving yards, and 1 touchdown. The projections for second-team tight end Josh Hill are higher at 44 receptions, 528 yards, and 3 touchdowns.
