4. Best Comeback: TE Benjamin Watson

Jimmy who?  There was a cause for concern after the New Orleans Saints traded away their All-Pro tight end in Jimmy Graham.  However, Benjamin Watson did his best Jimmy impression in 2015, securing a career-best season in receptions, yards and touchdowns.

Watson, 35, continues to defy age after having the best season of his 12-year career, which includes stints with the New England Patriots and Cleveland Browns.

He finished 2015 with 74 receptions, 825 yards and six touchdowns.  Those are Pro Bowl numbers for a tight end if you ask me, but unfortunately, the fan-vote system left him in the dust, as well as other deserving Saints.  Regardless, Benjamin Watson is my comeback player and No. 4 overall ranked player on offense.
