Kelvin Benjamin hauled in 2-of-6 targets for 43 yards in the Bills' Week 6 loss to the Texans.
Benjamin was predictably quiet for most of this game, but he showed up with a couple big plays in the third quarter. The first was negated by an illegal formation penalty, but he came back on the next drive with a 39-yard catch. That catch went for more yards than he did in any of the first five games this season. He regressed right back to expectations after that, dropping a pass a couple plays later. He will not be an option next week against the Colts. Oct 14 - 5:08 PM

Kelvin Benjamin caught 1-of-5 targets for 11 yards in the Bills' Week 5 win over the Titans.

Josh Allen hasn't helped him, but Benjamin has been atrocious this year. He has shown no ability to separate from defensive backs or so much as win contested catches. Benjamin has finished below 40 yards in each of the Bills' first five games and is averaging under four yards per target. Benjamin will not be a fantasy option in Week 6 at Houston.
Oct 7 - 4:34 PM

Kelvin Benjamin caught 1-of-6 targets for 34 yards in the Bills' Week 4 loss to the Packers.

As inefficient as you've come to expect. Benjamin was also checked for a concussion but thankfully cleared the protocol. On pace for just 368 yards in the Bills' dysfunctional offense, Benjamin is miles from fantasy relevance.
Sep 30 - 6:54 PM

Kelvin Benjamin caught 3-of-5 targets for 29 yards in the Bills' Week 3 win over the Vikings.

Josh Allen did most of his damage scrambling for his life outside of the pocket, and thus Benjamin wasn't looked to downfield much. He still leads the Bills' skill players in target share, but hasn't caught more than three passes or eclipsed the 30-yard mark in any game this season. He's droppable in all formats.

Kelvin Benjamin (hip) was upgraded to full practice on Thursday.

Benjamin saw limited reps Wednesday due to a hip injury, though obviously the injury was nothing serious. He should see his usual workload on Sunday, though he'll be greeted by one of the league's better secondaries when the Bills travel to Minnesota.
Sep 20 - 2:40 PM

Kelvin Benjamin (hip) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

It's a new ailment for the often-dinged-up wideout, but it isn't one that should affect Benjamin's Week 3 availability against the Vikings. He's a WR4.
Sep 19 - 11:33 AM

Kelvin Benjamin caught two passes for 19 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Chargers.

Benjamin's touchdown came deep into garbage time. He didn't make his first catch until deep in the third quarter and continued to be the victim of bad quarterback play. Benjamin should have better weeks as Josh Allen acclimates, but he can't be trusted in fantasy lineups.
Sep 16 - 4:55 PM

Kelvin Benjamin caught 1-of-7 targets for 10 yards in Week 1 against Baltimore.

It was a rough game for Benjamin, who dropped a touchdown in the end-zone. Benjamin was held back by Nathan Peterman in the first half, but saw more looks after Josh Allen took over. Benjamin has one of the worst quarterback situations in the league, but his target share keeps him in the WR3 discussion.
Sep 9 - 4:39 PM

Kelvin Benjamin caught 2-of-4 targets for 39 yards in the Bills' third preseason game against the Bengals.

Benjamin has stayed healthy all summer aside from needing periodic ice treatments to his balky knee. He's the Bills' default top wideout but is only attractive in fantasy for his volume. Benjamin plays too small at times.
Aug 26 - 5:59 PM

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is "practicing fully" during OTAs.

Benjamin's health was always going to be important for the Bills, but that is especially true with the news Zay Jones underwent knee surgery last week. Benjamin caught 16 passes for 217 yards and a touchdown in six games with the Bills last season, but he was never really healthy during that run.
May 24 - 10:53 AM

Bills GM Brandon Beane said he wants to see how Kelvin Benjamin fits in the new offense before discussing a contract extension.

Benjamin is entering the final year of his rookie deal. In addition to his fit, Beane likely wants to see how healthy and in shape Benjamin is before discussing a long-term deal. Benjamin caught 16 passes for 217 yards and a touchdown in six games with the Bills last year after coming over from Carolina via a trade, although he was never really healthy during that run.
Apr 30 - 9:52 AM

Kelvin Benjamin (knee surgery) is participating in voluntary workouts.

Benjamin underwent knee surgery after the season. Participating in the workout portion of the offseason program does not mean he is back to 100 percent, but he appears to be close to full health at worst. Benjamin should be ready for OTAs.

Kelvin Benjamin underwent knee surgery after the season but is expected to be ready for OTAs.

Benjamin suffered a torn meniscus in the first quarter of his first game with the Bills after they acquired him from the Panthers at the trade deadline. He ended up playing through it, but Benjamin was obviously never 100 percent. Benjamin is under contract for one more year at $8.459 million.
Feb 28 - 9:30 AM

Kelvin Benjamin caught 1-of-2 targets for nine yards in the Bills' Wild Card loss to the Jaguars.

Playing through a knee injury for almost the entirety of his six games as a Bill, Benjamin was a comprehensive bust in Buffalo, while the Panthers' offense improved without him. Benjamin is supposed to be a jump ball winner, but playing on one leg, he found himself routinely blanketed with no other Bills wideout capable of commanding defensive attention. The Bills can retain Benjamin for the $8.459 million club option the Panthers exercised last spring, but can also cut him without penalty (if he passes his physical). With zero wide receiver depth to speak of, the Bills will probably give Benjamin a do-over in 2018.
Jan 7 - 4:44 PM

Kelvin Benjamin (knee) wasn't listed on the Bills' final injury report for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Jaguars.

He'll give it a go despite being limited at practice this week. Benjamin has cleared 50 yards just once in his last seven games while playing through a torn meniscus. This would be a tough matchup for Benjamin even if he were healthy. DFS players should be looking at other options this week.
