Bills' Kelvin Benjamin: Offseason knee procedure on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin is slated to undergo offseason surgery on his meniscus, News 4 Sports reports.

Per the Buffalo News, it's a procedure that carries a 4-6 week recovery period, which allows Benjamin ample time to be ready for action by the time the Bills take the field again. In 14 games (eight with Carolina and six with Buffalo) this past season, the 6-foot-5 wideout logged 48 catches on 78 targets for 692 yards and three TDs. Assuming he enters the 2018 campaign in good health, and addressing his balky knee with his upcoming procedure should aid his cause in that regard, Benjamin is a bounce-back candidate next season. At this stage, it's difficult to get a good read on his fantasy upside, however, with his team likely to continue re-tooling its passing attack. Specifically, there could be a change at QB, with Tyrod Taylor not a lock to be retained by the Bills, according to ESPN.com.

Bills' Kelvin Benjamin: Single-digit receiving yards in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin brought in one of two targets for nine yards in Sunday's 10-3 AFC wild-card loss to the Jaguars.

The towering receiver couldn't make much of an impact on a day when Tyrod Taylor (concussion) kept his throws even shorter than usual (3.6 YPA) and LeSean McCoy served as the top target in the passing game. Benjamin posted single-game highs of five receptions and 70 receiving yards over the six contests he appeared in with the Bills after being acquired from the Panthers on Oct. 31. However, he also played multiple games at the tail end of the season with a torn meniscus, an issue that undoubtedly affected him to an unknown degree and that he'll presumably address this offseason. A potential clean bill of health and full offseason in Buffalo's system would likely work wonders for Benjamin, who'll also look to continue improving his rapport with Taylor as much as possible.

Bills' Kelvin Benjamin: Good to go this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin (knee) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's playoff game against the Jaguars.

Benjamin was limited at practice this week, but he'll give it a go Sunday, as expected. With top RB LeSean McCoy dealing with an ankle issue that could impact his effectiveness, if not his availability, this weekend, the wideout's profile in the offense could expand in the Bills' first postseason appearance since Jan. 8, 2000. The Jaguars defense versus the Bills passing attack is a less-than-ideal matchup on the road, however, relegating the 6-foot-5 Benjamin to a speculative playoff fantasy option.

Bills' Kelvin Benjamin: Limited in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Benjamin was also limited in practices last week, but ultimately suited up for the Bills' regular-season finale against the Dolphins, hauling in two of three targets for 27 yards in that contest. The nagging meniscus injury will likely result in Benjamin's practice reps being capped for the duration of the Bills' postseason run, but it's not expected to cost him any games. He has already indicated that he'll forgo surgery to address the matter until the offseason.

Bills' Kelvin Benjamin: Set to play Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's contest at Miami.

Since returning to action Week 14, Benjamin has parlayed between 59 and 74 percent of the snaps on offense in a given game into a combined 10 catches (on 17 targets) for 128 yards and one touchdown. With a playoff berth in the line this weekend, the Bills likely will look to Benjamin early and often against the Dolphins' 17th-ranked pass defense, despite continued maintenance of his knees.
