Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Scores twice while assuming leading role against Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Benjamin caught all six of his targets for 115 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 38-14 win over the Jaguars.

Benjamin filled the void left by Keenan Allen's season-ending torn ACL and then some, catching multiple touchdowns for the first time since Week 2 of last season while reaching triple-digit receiving yards for the first time since Week 10. He's likely to get an even greater share of quarterback Philip Rivers' attention moving forward with receiving back Danny Woodhead succumbing to a knee injury of his own in this one. As long as he doesn't fall victim to the injury bug going around in San Diego, the 26-year-old wide receiver has an excellent shot at his first career 1,000-yard season.

Chargers' Travis Benjamin: More targets expected
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Benjamin is the top candidate to see his number of targets grow in wake of teammate Keenan Allen's knee injury suffered Sunday against the Chiefs, ESPN.com's Eric Williams reports.

Benjamin caught seven passes for 32 yards and led San Diego with eight targets Sunday, when Allen exited during the first half due to a suspected torn ACL. If Allen indeed misses the rest of the season, Benjamin has a great opportunity to become the Chargers' most utilized wideout, as he's easily the most proven remaining option on San Diego's depth chart. Playing for a dreadful Browns team last year, Benjamin saw a career-high 124 targets, recording 68 catches for 966 yards and five touchdowns from those looks. Although his production tailed off over the course of the season, Benjamin could now see his stock rise considerably in a pass-oriented San Diego offense likely in need of a new top receiving target.

Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Snags seven passes in Chargers debut
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Benjamin hauled in seven of eight targets for 32 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Benjamin led the Chargers in targets on Sunday and might end up being their de facto top receiver should fears that Keenan Allen tore his ACL prove true. If he wants to be effective in that role, however, he'll have to reassert himself as a deep threat. Benjamin averaged 15.3 yards per catch through Week 12 of last season, an average that would have ranked in the top 20 in the league had he maintained it. In his last six contests, however, Benjamin's average is down to 8.2 yards per catch.

Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Multiple catches in preseason loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin finished Sunday's preseason loss with two catches for 32 yards on five targets.

Suiting up alongside the first-string offense, Benjamin played well, recording two intermediate level catches in a little over a quarter of work. The 26-year-old has fit right in with the Chargers after joining the team during the offseason, and should add a dynamic playmaking ability to an already explosive offensive unit.

Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Takes part in first preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin recorded one catch for 11 yards, as well as one carry for negative five yards in his preseason debut against on the Cardinals on Friday.

An offseason addition by way of the Browns, Benjamin has played sparingly during training camp thanks to a nagging hamstring injury. While he didn't factor in much on offense Friday, the 26-year-old still figures to bring a dynamic element to a passing attack that also features Keenan Allen and the seemingly immortal Antonio Gates. Now firmly entrenched as the No. 2 starting WR with Stevie Johnson (knee) done for the season, Benjamin could improve upon his 2015 numbers (68 catches, 966 yards and five touchdowns) in an explosive passing attack that has seen QB Philip Rivers record three straight seasons in which he has thrown for over 4,000 yards.
