Benjamin signing with Chargers | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

WR Travis Benjamin is set to sign with the Chargers when free agency officially begins later today, according to NFL Network's Rand Getlin.  Benjamin drew interest from at least 2 others teams after a breakout 68-966-5 line in 2015.  Still smack dab in his prime at 26 years old, Benjamin will serve as the deep-threat complement to WR Keenan Allen in San Diego.  He'll basically be replacing Malcom Floyd, who maxed out as a WR3 in fantasy football.  Don't bank on much more than that from Benjamin.

Recent Shark Bites

The 49ers have inked WR Travis Benjamin to a 1-year deal. Injuries limited the 30-year-old to just 5 appearances for the Chargers last season. But Benjamin averaged over 14 yards per catch in each of his first 7 NFL campaigns. He'll provide a field-stretching threat for QB Jimmy Garoppolo and the 'Niners -- but Benjamin is a long shot to hold real fantasy value in 2020.

Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (hip) is inactive for today’s game against the Dolphins. With WR Mike Williams (back) also out, it’ll be Dontrelle Inman operating as Los Angeles’ #2 WR. He’s a WR4 or flex option in this pristine matchup.

Chargers TE Travis Benjamin (foot) is inactive for today’s game against the Rams. Tyrell Williams and Mike Williams will serve as the #2 and #3 WRs, but neither is a strong fantasy play vs. a tough group of Rams CBs.

Chargers TE Travis Benjamin (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Rams after a limited week of practice. He was reportedly close to playing last weekend, so we’re expecting him to give it a go here. Benjamin isn’t a fantasy option, though, against a stout Rams secondary.

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.
