Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Appears healthy following shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin has been fielding punts at practice and does not appear to be hampered by an earlier shoulder injury, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports.

There were rumors that Benjamin could become a cap casualty during the offseason, but Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com essentially confirmed that conversation has been put to rest for 2018. Given the 28-year-old hasn't lost a notable amount of his trademark speed, Benjamin seems likely to reprise his role from last season in which he acted as a deep threat, opening up intermediary routes for Keenan Allen and Tyrell Williams. While that role is an important facet to this offense, it likely won't yield a consistent amount of fantasy points, especially considering 2017 first-round pick, Mike Williams, continues to assert himself in training camp. As a result, Benjamin is likely only suited for best ball formats.

Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Bothered by shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin is dealing with a shoulder injury and may wear a red no-contact jersey at Tuesday's practice, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

It's a good sign that the veteran wideout is expected to wear a no-contact jersey rather than sit out practice entirely. There was some thought during the offseason that Benjamin could be a cap casualty, but it appears the Chargers will need everything they can get from their wide receiver group after losing tight end Hunter Henry to a torn ACL. Even if Mike Williams ends up taking his regular spot in three-wide formations, Benjamin should be valuable to the team as a punt returner and occasional deep threat.

Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Could be cap casualty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Nearly tops 100 receiving yards in final game of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.
