Player Outlook

Travis Benjamin will likely once again be a key receiving option for the Chargers this year, but he has minimal Fantasy value in the majority of leagues. He's a key member of the offense as the field stretcher for the Chargers, but he plays in a crowded receiving corps with Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams, Mike Williams, Hunter Henry and Melvin Gordon. As such, he will only occasionally post positive results for Fantasy owners. In 2017, despite being tied for fourth on the team in targets with 62, he still managed just five games with double digits in Fantasy points in a standard league to go with eight games with two points or fewer. He's only worth drafting with a late-round pick in deep Fantasy leagues this year.

  • Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Could be cap casualty
    By RotoWire Staff

    Benjamin is scheduled for a $5.75 million salary in 2018, ESPN.com's Eric D. Williams reports. Entering the third season of a four-year, $24 million contract, Benjamin could become a cap casualty if the Chargers are comfortable moving forward with restricted free agent Tyrell Williams and 2017 first-round selection Mike Williams alongside Keenan Allen. It isn't out of the question that the team keeps all four wideouts, seeing as Benjamin has value in the return game, while Allen and Mike Williams have sketchy medical track records. The 28-year-old Benjamin was an effective deep threat last season, catching 34 of 64 targets for 567 yards (8.9 per target) and four touchdowns in 16 games. He also returned 27 punts for 257 yards and another score while correcting his fumbling issues from the previous year.

  • Benjamin caught four of his five targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in the 30-10 win Sunday over the Raiders. He also carried the ball twice for four yards. Week 17 wound up being one of the best of the season for Benjamin, as the sixth-year receiver only crossed 50 receiving yards four times during the year, including Sunday's performance. With all of the Chargers' major receiving options healthy for the majority of the season, Benjamin simply saw a reduced role in 2017, acting as a glorified gadget player throughout much of the campaign. So long as the Chargers retain their squadron of weapons heading into 2018, Benjamin's fantasy worth may be best suited merely for best ball leagues.

  • Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Does not record a catch
    By RotoWire Staff

    Benjamin did not record a catch in Sunday's 14-7 win over the Jets. The zero in the reception column wasn't for lack of trying, as the Chargers targeted Benjamin on five separate occasions, only for the pass to be out of reach or simply dropped. A glorified gadget player, the 27-year-old is simply not consistent enough to belong in fantasy lineups at this point in the season.

  • Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Totals 14 yards
    By RotoWire Staff

    Benjamin recorded one catch for seven yards and also carried the ball once for seven yards in the 30-13 loss to the Chiefs on Saturday. Benjamin saw four targets in Saturday's contest but only managed to corral one as the speedy wide receiver failed to capitalize on his limited opportunities. Given Keenan Allen was carted off the field Saturday due to a back injury, Benjamin could see additional opportunities should the star receiver miss more time, particularly in the slot during three-wide receiver sets.

  • Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Catches two passes in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Benjamin caught two passes for 21 yards in the 30-13 win over the Redskins on Sunday. It was the "Keenan Allen and Tyrell Williams Show" Sunday, as the top two receivers combined for 243 receiving yards in what quickly developed into a blowout win. Benjamin saw at least three targets for the third straight week, but so long as the Chargers continue to handle their opposition with ease, the speedy wide receiver will likely struggle to see enough opportunities to provide positive returns for fantasy owners.
