Chargers | Travis Benjamin could be returner

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 11:55:18 -0800

Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin could be used as a punt returner next season. Benjamin was the punt returner during the early part of 2016 but struggled with his decision making and was replaced.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin probably would not see a lot of time as a returner in 2017 because he should have a solid role in the passing game. He finished 2016 with 47 receptions, 677 yards and four touchdowns. Owners in most leagues should consider Benjamin a No. 4 receiver in drafts.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin had knee surgery

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 15:55:52 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) underwent arthroscopic knee surgery last week to repair a Grade 2 posterior cruciate ligament sprain. Benjamin had been dealing with the sprain for several weeks. A timetable for his recovery was not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: The Chargers' offense may have had more major injuries to its offense than any other team in the NFL in 2016. Benjamin shouldn't be as involved next season with Keenan Allen and others returning from injury, but he's still a viable deep threat. Consider him in the later rounds of standard drafts.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin inactive

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 12:29:38 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin has been declared inactive for the team's Week 17 game.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin was not on the injury report this week, so it appears like he is a healthy scratch. He should have a solid role in the passing game next season and can be a No. 3 receiver in some leagues. Tyrell Williams and Dontrelle Inman should receive most of the work in the passing game. Williams can be a No. 3 receiver for owners, while Inman can be a flex option.

Chargers | Just one grab for Travis Benjamin

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 21:21:56 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) was active for the Week 12 game against the Houston Texans, but he was limited to one grab for eight yards on two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin didn't do much, and perhaps he was dealing with ill-effects of his injury. He could factor in more prominently in Week 14 with Tyrell Williams leaving the game early.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin will play Sunday

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 07:27:50 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) will play in Week 12's game against the Houston Texans, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin was listed as questionable on the injury report despite being a full participant in practice throughout the week. He merits consideration as a flex option in deeper leagues despite the somewhat unfavorable matchup.

Chargers | Questionable tag for Travis Benjamin

Fri, 25 Nov 2016 16:16:28 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin was a full participant during practice this week and should be ready to play against the Houston Texans. He has been held to under five catches in each of the last four games and has less than 55 yards in each of those games. Benjamin could be considered a flex option in deeper leagues because he should see be involved in the passing game.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin fully practices

Thu, 24 Nov 2016 15:18:20 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) participated fully in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

Fantasy Tip: The warning signs are legitimate for Benjamin this week. He's missed the last two weeks with his knee injury and faces a really tough test in the Houston Texans. Don't consider Benjamin as more than a flex start.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin has full practice

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 13:21:40 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) was a full participant in practice Wednesday Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for Benjamin he'll return against one of the better pass defenses in the NFL this year in the Houston Texans. If there aren't better options then start him, but he has risk written all over him this week between the matchup and the return from injury.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin returns to practice

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 16:32:03 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) returned to practice Monday, Nov. 21.

Fantasy Tip: This is excellent news for Benjamin, after the former Cleveland Brown missed the club's last contest in Week 10, but it appears the bye week really did wonders for his sprained PCL. As long as he's able to keep trending in the right direction throughout the week, Benjamin should return to action Sunday, and he'll be a strongly recommended pickup for any leagues where he might be available. Benjamin is San Diego's best receiver with Keenan Allen (knee) out for the year, and was leading the club in catches, receiving yards and touchdowns prior to going down with injury. He still might be a little hobbled, though, which makes him a risky WR3 play for Week 12.
