Chiefs' Kelvin Benjamin: Breaks ice in team debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin brought in one of two targets for 17 yards in the Chiefs' 29-28 loss to the Chargers on Thursday.

The star-crossed 2014 first-round pick made his Chiefs debut and was able to get on the stat sheet, hauling in a sideline pass from Patrick Mahomes down to the Chargers' four-yard line early in the third quarter. The big-bodied Benjamin could well fill an important complementary role over the final two games of the regular season if Sammy Watkins (foot) remains sidelined, and his presence may prove even more important in the postseason if the latter is placed on injured reserve. Benjamin will look to make further strides in the offense against the Seahawks in a Week 16 Sunday night battle.

Chiefs' Kelvin Benjamin: In uniform Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin is active for Thursday's game against the Chargers, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Benjamin disappointed with the Bills this season before being released earlier this month. He'll now look to get things going with the Chiefs and may carve out a solid role with the team down the stretch if Sammy Watkins' foot injury lingers. That said, we'd like to see Benjamin get a full and productive game in before recommending him as a fantasy lineup option.

Chiefs' Kelvin Benjamin: Anticipates playing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin expects to suit up for Thursday's game against the Chargers, Omar Ruiz of NFL Network reports.

Benjamin was inactive for Week 14 against the Ravens as he continued to learn the playbook, but with Sammy Watkins (foot) and Tyreek Hill (heel/wrist) both banged up, the Chiefs need all the help they can get at wide receiver. The big-bodied wideout was released by the Bills in early December after posting just 23 catches for 354 yards and a touchdown over 12 games. He secured a deal with the Chiefs last Thursday and appears set to make his debut just a week later. Still, his snap count may be limited by his knowledge of the playbook.

Chiefs' Kelvin Benjamin: Inactive for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

Benjamin will be street clothes for his first game with the Chiefs after his late-week addition to the roster left him with little time to get up to speed with the new playbook. Given that the Chiefs play on Thursday night against the Chargers in Week 15, Benjamin may have a tough time getting prepared for that game as well, so it may not be until late-December that he makes his team debut. Whenever he's ready to go, Benjamin could challenge for a role in three-receiver formations with Sammy Watkins (foot) sidelined for Week 14 and at risk of missing the rest of the regular season.

Chiefs' Kelvin Benjamin: Unlikely to play Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Andy Reid admitted Friday that it's unlikely Benjamin will be active for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports. Reid said the newly signed wideout will have a more realistic shot at playing in the Chiefs' Thursday night matchup with the Chargers in Week 15.

After being cut loose by Buffalo earlier in the week and going unclaimed off waivers, Benjamin worked out of the Chiefs on Thursday and was signed to the roster a day later. Kansas City was motivated to add extra depth at receiver after Sammy Watkins aggravated a lingering right foot injury that is expected to sideline him for Sunday's game and possibly the remainder of the regular season, but Benjamin likely won't be pressed into action in Watkins' stead right away after having limited time to get up to speed with the Chiefs' playbook. Once Benjamin gets comfortable with Kansas City's offensive scheme, he could challenge for a regular role in three-wideout formations alongside Tyreek Hill and Chris Conley. Benjamin's involvement in the passing game would likely trail off to some extent once Watkins is back to full health.
