Jacksonville Jaguars WR Arrelious Benn could be an option for more time and a bigger role in the offense, as general manager David Caldwell mentioned Benn and WR Tandon Doss as in-house veterans as options to fill the team's need for a seasoned receiver.
Fantasy Tip: Benn has plenty of speed, but injuries have derailed his career in previous stops. He is worth watching during training camp and the preseason, but he would only be worth a look in the deepest of fantasy leagues on draft day.

Tue, 06 Aug 2013 16:17:27 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR Arrelious Benn (knee) suffered a torn left anterior cruciate ligament in practice Tuesday, Aug. 6.
Fantasy Tip: With Benn more than likely done for the season, and Jeremy Maclin (knee) also down for the year, DeSean Jackson, Riley Cooper and Damaris Johnson (hamstring) are the top three receivers for the team. For fantasy purposes, Jackson is the only WR owners should seriously consider starting in Week 1.

Sat, 27 Jul 2013 14:32:09 -0700
The Philadelphia Eagles confirmed reports that WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
Fantasy Tip: This will effectively end Maclin's season. Riley Cooper reportedly stepped into his place during practice but probably isn't a better fantasy option than Arrelious Benn (knee) and Jason Avant if all three are healthy. The tight ends could see more targets, but the mix remains complicated with Brent Celek, Zach Ertz and Clay Harbor, and it could be a fantasy mess. This also removes a weapon from either Nick Foles or Michael Vick.
Sat, 27 Jul 2013 09:29:31 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles Arrelious Benn (knee), WR B.J. Cunningham (foot) and CB Cary Williams (hamstring) will not participate in practice Saturday, July 27.

Tue, 09 Jul 2013 16:06:00 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WRs DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant and Damaris Johnson are considered locks to make the team. One or two more spots will be filled by Riley Cooper, Arrelious Benn, Ifeanyi Momah, B.J. Cunningham and Russell Shepard.
Fantasy Tip: Benn could be a better keep than Cooper because he can play the slot and outside along with his return experience. Either way, the wide receivers in Chip Kelly's system take a hit from past years in Andy Reid's. Jackson and Maclin are merely WR3s, and these depth players aren't as attractive as fantasy flyers anymore.
Thu, 23 May 2013 15:21:26 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly confirmed that he prefers larger and taller players at most positions on his team, but he's in favor of protecting his smaller players like WR DeSean Jackson. Jackson touched the ball progressively less in each of his five NFL seasons in part because the team worried about keeping him healthy. Jackson only played in five games last year because of fractured ribs and only scored one touchdown. He hopes he can go back to being extremely productive in the team's new offense with larger players creating mismatches for their opponents. "I'm challenging myself to be able to play every position," said Jackson, who's been hinting all offseason that he could be lining up in the backfield as well. "There might be a play or a different position where I normally would not line up or be in, but the leeway of the offense gives us the opportunity to go inside and outside and things like that, so I'm taking advantage of the opportunity to learn the whole offense and be in different spaces throughout the game."
Twelve of the team's receivers on the roster are 6-foot-1 or taller, including WRs Arrelious Benn (6-foot-6), Greg Salas (6-foot-1) and Riley Cooper (6-foot-3). Kelly hopes to make opponents pay if they decide to double team Jackson or jam him at the line of scrimmage. Having bigger receivers outside to block should also help the running game. WR Russell Shepard, an undrafted rookie, will have the same opportunity as Benn to prove himself. "I was on the front line on kickoffs, I played running back, I played quarterback, I played receiver," Shepard said. "So (the versatility) is giving me more of an opportunity of making this 53-man roster."
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners should expect Kelly to try and involve Jackson more in an offense that should cater to Jackson's wishes to touch the ball more often and score more frequently. Jackson has been a frustrating play in point-per-reception formats in his career, but that could be changing. Until we know more about how he may be involved in this new scheme, consider him a midrange No. 3 wideout.

The Philadelphia Eagles acquired WR Arrelious Benn and a 2013 seventh-round pick from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, March 15, in exchange for a 2013 sixth-round pick and a conditional pick in 2014.
Fantasy Tip: Benn has been slowed by multiple injuries in his career, but if he can remain healthy, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him flash glimpses of effectiveness in Chip Kelly's new regime. Benn isn't worth considering in most drafts, but keep an eye on how he fits into this new offense in offseason workouts and training camp.
