Kelvin Benjamin Fantasy Football News 2018

Bills HC Sean McDermott said at the Combine Wednesday that WR Kelvin Benjamin is recovering from surgery. It was presumably on the torn right meniscus he suffered on November 19. Benjamin missed the next 2 weeks and was noticeably slowed the rest of the way. McDermott expects him to be ready for the start of the offseason conditioning program in April.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. He’s playing through a torn meniscus that will eventually require surgery. Benjamin shouldn’t be in in Week 16 fantasy lineups.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Patriots after putting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. He’s been ineffective playing through his torn meniscus, totaling just 5 catches over the past 2 games.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. He played just 61% of the offensive snaps last Sunday and was limited in practice all this week. Benjamin is a shaky Week 15 fantasy play.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins after a limited week of practice. We’ll find out his status by noon ET, but Benjamin can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups after being unable to make it through last week’s game.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He re-aggravated his knee injury last weekend, but the fact that he's on the field early in the week gives him a shot to play against the Dolphins on Sunday. He'd be no better than a low-end WR3 for that one.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin re-injured his knee in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Colts. He posted a 3-38-1 line on 7 targets before exiting. We'll look for an update on Benjamin after the Snow Bowl.

Update: Benjamin returned late in the 4th quarter for a play but then hobbled off again.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) isn't listed on the final injury report after practicing all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. So it doesn’t look like that knee will be an issue. But we'd still have trouble trusting Benjamin in Week 14 fantasy lineups, especially if it’s Nathan Peterman under center.

Bills HC Sean McDermott said WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) "looks good" to play against the Colts this weekend. We'll see. The team has been over-optimistic about Benjamin's status all along. He won't be more than a WR4 in a struggling passing game if he suits up.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. The team continues to label him "day-to-day" with his torn meniscus, but Benjamin doesn't look close to a return. Zay Jones will continue to operate as Buffalo's #1 WR this weekend.

The Bills announced on Monday that WR Kelvin Benjamin has a torn meniscus. The team is calling him day-to-day, but players miss an average of 4.9 games with this injury, according to SportsInjuryPredictor.com. 59% miss 4+ weeks. We'll continue to track Benjamin's status, but don't be surprised if he's sidelined for a few more games. He's droppable in shallower fantasy leagues.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) didn't travel with the team to Kansas City and is out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He didn't practice all week and is no lock to return for Week 13. Zay Jones and Jordan Matthews (questionable, knee) figure to serve as Buffalo's top 2 WRs tomorrow.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs. He didn’t practice all week, though, so we’d be surprised if he plays. WR Jordan Matthews (knee), meanwhile, is also listed as questionable but put in 3 limited practices this week. We’ll find out his status by noon ET on Sunday, but Matthews is just a desperation fantasy play if he suits up.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Sean McDermott labeled him "day-to-day." Benjamin avoided a serious injury but is no better than 50/50 to play against the Chiefs this weekend.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin has no ligament damage in his right knee, HC Sean McDermott said Monday. That should at least rule out a long-term absence. We're still waiting for more details on the injury and Benjamin's status for this weekend's game vs. the Chiefs.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin injured his knee on the 1st possession of Sunday's game against the Chargers and was quickly ruled out for the rest of the day. We'll pass along more details as soon as we get them.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin will start today's game against the Saints, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That doesn't guarantee Benjamin anything in terms of snaps or targets -- but it's better than the alternative. He's now been with the team for 12 days. Consider Benjamin a low-end WR3 for Week 10.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin is inactive for tonight's game against the Jets. He'll have another 10 days to get ready for his Bills debut against the Saints in Week 10. Jordan Matthews and Zay Jones get 1 more game as Buffalo's top 2 WRs.

Bills GM Brandon Beane said Wednesday that WR Kelvin Benjamin is "50/50" to play against the Jets tomorrow night. If he does, he'll be suiting up just about 48 hours after joining the team and would play limited snaps. He's not a viable Week 9 fantasy option.

The Panthers have traded WR Kelvin Benjamin to the Bills in exchange for 3rd- and 7th-round picks. Wow. There were a lot of names floated around as potential trade candidates over the past 48 hours, but Benjamin was not one of them. He joins a Buffalo squad that dealt away WR Sammy Watkins in what looked like a rebuilding move just a few months ago. The Bills are surprisingly in the driver's seat for a playoff spot now, though, and get a legit #1 WR for QB Tyrod Taylor. Taylor's fantasy value gets a nice boost with this move. Benjamin, meanwhile, goes from the league's 12th run-heaviest offense to its 2nd run-heaviest. Toss in the fact that he has a new offense to learn, and his fantasy stock takes a hit here. We'll see if he's even active for Thursday night's game against the Jets. The Panthers are left with Devin Funchess as their #1 WR. Russell Shepard and Curtis Samuel round out the depth chart. A struggling Cam Newton is in trouble -- at least until he gets TE Greg Olsen back.
