I don't think their respective numbers support that argument, sorry.
yeah, that was a pretty bogus statement. also must be considered is that millers career long receptions are 50 and 87 yds. watsons is 40. its pretty clear that miller is more than just a "red zone threat". having ben watson in fantasy, ive paid pretty close attention to his highlights. he is a abig receiver and doesnt break as many tackles as miller, and he doesnt block as well.

watson is heralded for chasing down a hot dogging champ bailey on an int in a playoff game. impressive indeed. it shows he may be better suited for playing safety in the nfl rather than TE. he still hasnt lived up to that hype and i doubt he ever will on the patriots though. as the #1 receiving option in last years offense he shoulda had a monster year. it was mediocre at best.

i would take the bears desmond clark and greg olsen over the pats top 2 te's.
