Chargers | Travis Benjamin limited in practice

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 20:23:36 -0800

Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (abdomen) was a limited participant in practice Monday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: After exiting Sunday's blowout win over the Bills, Benjamin may have put himself in position to return to action on Thanksgiving by at least getting in a limited practice the following day. Either way, he's such a volatile player to deploy in fantasy that he should really only be considered as an option for the most desperate owners in deeper leagues.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin forced out early

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 20:17:45 -0800

Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (abdomen) left the Week 11 game against the Buffalo Bills due to an abdominal strain.

Fantasy Tip: The game got out of hand early and he might have been held out of the game as a precaution. When there is an update on his condition we'll pass it along. The Chargers have a quick turnaround with a game on Thanksgiving in Dallas.

Chargers | No catches for Travis Benjamin

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 19:25:53 -0800

Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin was held without a catch and ran once for 13 yards in a 20-17 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin has the speed to break some big plays, but he is an all-or-nothing receiver. He is better served as a DFS flier than a standard league option.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin leads passing attack

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 18:26:41 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin caught five passes for a team-high 64 yards and a touchdown and had two carries for 14 yards in a 21-13 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin led the Chargers in catches, targets and yards in Week 8, but it was the first time since Week 3 that he recorded more than two receptions. He is still to inconsistent to trust in fantasy circles.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin shows off wheels

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 20:22:29 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin posted a 42-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter of the Week 7 game against the Denver Broncos on his only target and he ripped off a 65-yard punt return to open the scoring in the first quarter.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin is a speed burner, and it would be a good idea to try and get the ball in his hands a little more often. For now fantasy owners should only target him as a WR5 with some upside going forward.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin cracks century mark

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 18:29:26 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin posted five receptions for 105 yards on eight targets in the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin is a speed burner, and his 44-yard catch was just one yard short of a career best. Temper expectations heading into Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles, however, as he entered the game with just four grabs for 54 yards and a score. He needs more games like this before he becomes someone to consider regularly in fantasy.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin burns Denver for TD

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 04:12:18 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin caught three passes for 43 yards, including a 38-yard TD strike from Philip Rivers, in a 24-21 loss to the Denver Broncos on Monday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin's workload will only be limited because Rivers has plenty to work with in the offense. He only saw three touches, which suggests his performance in yardage leagues might suffer a bit. Scoring leagues is a different story. A quick strike like that will add up points, so make sure Benjamin is somehow activated in your lineup if you have a scoring league.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin at full strength

Sun, 02 Jul 2017 18:06:04 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) is fully healthy heading into training after having knee surgery at the end of last season.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin has big-play speed, but consistency is going to be tough to come by as part of a suddenly deep receiving corps. He is a late-round flier in deeper formats.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin as fast as ever

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 18:21:45 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin's vertical speed is a "game changer" for the offense, according to head coach Anthony Lynn, and Lynn said he wants Benjamin to return punts this season.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin has the speed to take the top off the defense, but the Chargers' crowded receiving corps will make consistency tough to come by. His value will be tied to big plays, making him more appealing as a DFS flier than a standard league option.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin saw numbers drop in '16

Mon, 05 Jun 2017 21:48:17 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin saw his numbers drop across the board in 2016 in his first year with the club. In his final season in Cleveland in 2015, Benjamin registered 68 catches on 125 targets for 966 yards and five touchdowns, while playing in all 16 games. Last year, though, Benjamin managed to suit up in 14 games, en route to notching 47 receptions on 75 targets for 677 yards and four touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Even when No. 1 wide-out Keenan Allen went down in the beginning of the campaign, Benjamin still couldn't consistently post the big statistics that some owners were expecting, as injuries also contributed to his sometimes erratic play. With Allen set to return, not to mention the presence of emerging receiver Tyrell Williams and first-round draft pick Mike Williams, it doesn't seem likely Benjamin can be relied upon regularly in fantasy this season.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin expected to be returner

Mon, 22 May 2017 16:47:11 -0700

The Los Angeles Chargers plan to use WR Travis Benjamin as a punt returner in 2017.

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.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin doubtful for Week 10

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 15:54:44 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) did not practice Friday, Nov. 11, and he is listed as doubtful for the Week 10 game against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin is a risky since he did not practice all week. Avoid him in all deeper fantasy leagues, which is the only place he should be starting when healthy.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin unlikely to play Week 10

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 13:48:42 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) did not participate in practice all week and has been listed as doubtful for Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Tyrell Williams is also questionable with a knee injury, setting the stage for an increased role from Dontrelle Inman and likely Hunter Henry. Antonio Gates has reestablished himself as Philip Rivers' top target in recent weeks, but there should be more than enough to go around to make all the aforementioned Chargers worth starting in fantasy this week.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin sits again

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 13:31:15 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: That's two days in a row Benjamin has not practiced. If he doesn't practice tomorrow then he could be doubtful for Week 10. Even if he practices and eventually plays he could be on a snap count. The risk in starting Benjamin may just be too high.

Chargers | No practice for Travis Benjamin

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 14:29:25 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Don't look now, but Benjamin has only scored once in his last seven games and has not even reached 60 yards in his last four games. He has dealt with injuries and could be limited again this week if he plays, as he was last week. The timing just doesn't seem right for a Benjamin rebound, even in a good matchup with the Miami Dolphins.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin checks out early

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 16:20:35 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) left the Week 9 game against the Tennessee Titans in the fourth quarter and he is not wearing or holding a helmet. He entered the game with a sprained posterior cruciate ligament in his knee.

Fantasy Tip: With Benjamin on the mend it's good news for fantasy owners of Tyrell Williams, Antonio Gates and Dontrelle Inman.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin ready to play

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 12:14:14 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 9 game.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin has been playing with the knee injury for the last several weeks but has posted decent numbers during that time. Benjamin is a risky option for owners but can still be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option.

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 14:44:49 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 4, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin has been dealing with his knee injury for several weeks but has been able to play. He has been targeted at least five times in every game this season but has posted at least five receptions in one of the last six games. Owners can consider Benjamin as a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin also limited

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 14:52:08 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin may be a little deeper in the woods than his counterpart Tyrell Williams. Benjamin is dealing with a PCL sprain, so he'll really need to be monitored before this weekend's game. Even if he's active, he could be limited. But if he is active, he should be started. He would still arguably be the Chargers' best option in the passing game.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin has PCL injury

Wed, 02 Nov 2016 17:35:34 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 posterior cruciate ligament injury but will not need surgery. His status for Week 9 is uncertain at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin has been bothered by his knee injury over the past few weeks but has been able to play. Owners will need to check on his status later in the week to see if he will play in Week 9. He can be a No. 3 receiver in most leagues if he is active.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin does not practice

Wed, 02 Nov 2016 14:41:19 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin has been able to play despite the knee injury but was scheduled to receive a second opinion on his knee earlier in the week. Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if he will play in Week 9. Benjamin is a decent No. 3 receiver when healthy, but owners will need others available in case he is ruled out.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin seeking second opinion

Mon, 31 Oct 2016 13:37:11 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) will receive a second opinion on his posterior cruciate ligament sprain, according to a source. Benjamin has been dealing with the injury for weeks and its discomfort has continued.

Fantasy Tip: An injury-plagued season for the Chargers gets worse by the week. It's unclear how bad Benjamin's injury is, but his status requires monitoring. Tyrell Williams and Dontrelle Inman would become San Diego's top receivers if Benjamin is forced to miss time, but Williams is the better bet if they're both available on waivers.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin scores on nice grab

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 20:39:20 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin posted three receptions for 44 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the Denver Broncos. He was targeted a team-high nine times.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin's stat line wasn't terribly impressive, but his touchdown catch certainly was very pretty. He remains more of a WR4 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 9 against the Tennessee Titans.

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 13:03:55 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin probably will be able to play this week, but owners need to check the inactive list to make sure. He has seen a small dip in his stats over the last few weeks but could still be a No. 3 receiver for owners in most leagues.

Chargers | Encouraging practice for two Charger WRs

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 14:59:31 -0700

San Diego Chargers WRs Travis Benjamin (knee) and Tyrell Williams (knee) were both limited participants at practice Thursday, Oct. 27, after sitting out practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: This is encouraging news for both, as it means each wide-out is on track to suit up in Sunday's divisional clash with the Broncos. At the same time, it also figures to be a difficult matchup, as Denver has one of the true elite defenses in all of football. When these two teams met a few weeks ago on Thursday Night Football, both Benjamin (three catches, 17 yards) and Williams (three catches, 28 yards) produced season lows in receiving yards.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin looks on in practice

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 20:20:31 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) was listed on the injury report for practice Wednesday, Oct. 26, due to a knee injury, but beat writer Michael Gehlken said it appears Benjamin was just being rested.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos have the league's top ranked pass defense allowing just 175.0 yards per game with four touchdowns through seven games, so even if Benjamin can play he isn't a recommended fantasy option in most formats.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin doesn't practice

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 14:43:11 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin only caught three passes for 17 yards in San Diego against the Broncos. If Benjamin does play, he could put up similar numbers in Denver, too. Benjamin shouldn't be completely disregarded, but don't view him as more than a WR4 against the elite Denver pass defense.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin finishes with four grabs

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 22:54:04 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) managed four receptions for 54 yards in the Week 7 game against the Atlanta Falcons. He was targeted five times.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin showed no ill-effects of the knee injury which had him listed as questionable. He has four or more grabs in six of his seven games, but faces a Denver defense in Week 8 which limited him to season lows of three grabs and 17 yards.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin questionable for Week 7

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 13:03:11 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) will be listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: While the expectation is that he will play, Benjamin's pace has slowed considerably since Week 2, when it appeared he was going to take over the Keenan Allen role in San Diego's offense. The Falcons present yet another get-well spot for Benjamin's fantasy stock, so owners should feel reasonably good about starting him as a WR3/flex in what should be a shootout.

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 14:05:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 20. As reported earlier, he is expected to play if he doesn't have any setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: To be safe, Benjamin's status should be monitored heading into the weekend. He has a great matchup against the Oakland Raiders, though, and is a viable WR3 play at worst if he's good to go.

San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) is participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 20. He is expected to play in the team's Week 7 game as long as he does not suffer a setback.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin should be able to play this week, but owners should check the inactive list just to make sure. He has recorded two 100-yard games this season and has been targeted at least seven times in four of the six games. Benjamin can be a No. 3 receiver in most leagues if he plays.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin does not practice

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 13:42:52 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 19.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Benjamin's knee injury will keep him out of the team's Week 7 game, but owners should know more about his status later in the week. He has been a bit inconsistent in terms of his weekly receiving yards but has been targeted at least seven times in three of the last four games. He should be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver if he is active this week.
