Travis Benjamin Fantasy Football News 2018

Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (foot) is inactive for today’s game against the Bills. That opens up extra snaps for Tyrell Williams and especially Mike Williams. Both guys are upside WR4s.

Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Bills. He was in a walking boot as of Wednesday. We’ll get Benjamin’s official status by noon ET on Sunday, but he shouldn’t be in your Week 2 fantasy plans. His absence would push a few extra targets to WRs Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams and Mike Williams.

Chargers WR Travis Benjamin has missed the first 2 practices of the week with a right foot injury. He was in a walking boot on Wednesday. Benjamin played 57% of the offensive snaps and saw 5 targets last week, so his absence would be significant -- and a boost to WRs Tyrell and Mike Williams.

Chargers TE Hunter Henry suffered a torn ACL in Tuesday's OTA session, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. "Did it during a drill, running downfield, untouched," Schefter tweeted. Freed from Antonio Gates' shadow, Henry was a prime breakout candidate entering his 3rd NFL season. He'll now miss the entire 2018 campaign. With Virgil Green now sitting atop the depth chart, the Chargers might consider bringing Gates back. The loss of Henry dings QB Philip Rivers' fantasy outlook and frees up targets for WRs Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin.

Chargers WR Travis Benjamin underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee after the season, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan. It was presumably to address the sprained PCL Benjamin suffered in Week 6. He played in 8 of the final 10 games but topped 56 yards in just 1 of those. He did so in 3 of his first 6 games. A healthier Benjamin will be a boon to San Diego's offense in 2017, but he might have trouble besting this past year's 47-677-4 line. Keenan Allen and Tyrell Williams figure to sit ahead of Benjamin on the depth chart going forward.

On the same day they announced their relocation to Los Angeles, the Chargers named Anthony Lynn their new HC. Lynn has 17 seasons of experience in the NFL, but all but 1 of those were spent as a special teams or RB coach. Lynn was promoted to OC in Buffalo prior to Week 3 of this past season and was then named interim HC for the season finale. The Bills averaged 25.8 points per game under Lynn's watch -- a mark that would have ranked 8th league-wide. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Chargers are hoping to retain OC Ken Whisenhunt and hire Gus Bradley as DC.
