Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Catches long touchdown in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin caught both of his targets for 89 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 48-17 preseason loss to the Seahawks.

Benjamin lived up to his billing as a deep threat in this one, taking a pass from Kellen Clemens 75 yards for a touchdown at the end of the first quarter. The speedster's productivity waned toward the end of the 2016 season, but he should reprise his role as the team's primary field stretcher this year and will look to produce more highlights such as this.

Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Appears healthy to open camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to head coach Anthony Lynn, Benjamin "looks healthy and ready to go", Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports.

Benjamin certainly didn't live up to expectations in his first season with the Chargers, finishing with 47 catches for 677 yards and four touchdowns due in large part to a variety of nagging injuries. After undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery in January, the former Browns speedster looks to be completely healthy, repeatedly blowing by overmatched cornerbacks on deep routes. With Mike Williams (back) expected to miss all of the preseason, Benjamin should slot right in with the Chargers' base offense, either acting as a nifty receiving option in the slot, or splitting out wide while Keenan Allen roams the middle of the field. Either way, the 27-year-old figures to see enough snaps to warrant at least a late-round flier in redraft formats, and he could even develop into a solid best-ball option should Williams' injury force him to miss more time.

Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Healthy going into training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin (knee - PCL) is healthy going into training camp, Geoffrey C. Arnold of The Oregonian reports.

In January, Benjamin underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee to address a Grade 2 PCL sprain he suffered in Week 7 of last season. Head coach Anthony Lynn said the receiver was "a little rusty coming in and out of his breaks" during June's mandatory minicamp according to Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site, but that comes as little surprise given Benjamin's situation. Considering his progress to date, the sixth-year wideout should have sufficient time to round into form during training camp.

Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Still in mix as starting WR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin (knee), not Mike Williams, is listed as the No. 3 wide receiver for the Chargers according to ESPN's Eric Williams.

Williams cautions that Benjamin seems to have a precipitous hold on the No. 3 WR job, as the No. 7 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, Mike Williams, could push him for the starting spot. However, the two wideouts play vastly different positions within the offensive scheme, meaning should Benjamin lose his starting spot he still figures to play a smaller role as a stretch-the-field speedster on the outside, or even in the slot. Given the draft capital invested in Williams, it seems likely the Clemson product will see the field sooner rather than later, mitigating Benjamin's fantasy value. Don't rule out the 27-year-old in best-ball formats, however, where his speed and big-play ability could help him score highly in random weeks.

Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Could drop to No. 4 in pecking order
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers surprisingly opted to use the No. 7 overall pick in the 2017 draft on Clemson wideout Mike Williams, who will join a receiving corps that already includes Benjamin (knee), Tyrell Williams and Keenan Allen (knee), Dan Woike of The Los Angeles Times reports.

Despite signing a four-year, $24 million contract last offseason, Benjamin already finds himself in danger of slipping to the No. 4 spot on the depth chart. Mike Williams is a pro-ready prospect with potential to start from day one, and Tyrell Williams is coming off a breakout 1,000-yard season. Meanwhile, Benjamin is looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2016 campaign in which he struggled with a knee injury, ultimately requiring arthroscopic surgery in January. The Chargers expect both Allen and Benjamin to be ready for Week 1, but the latter may be limited to a part-time role on offense, along with his usual spot in the return game.
