  Giants | Kelvin Benjamin to work out    Fri Jul 26, 01:48 PM

Free-agent WR Kelvin Benjamin (Chiefs) plans to work out for the New York Giants on Saturday, July 27, per a source.

Footballguys view: Dave Gettleman knows Benjamin's game, although he isn't at all like Corey Coleman, the receiver they lost in practice. Benjamin would still be a long shot to make the roster and looked like he was disinterested in football the last time we saw him on an NFL field.

  Chiefs | Kelvin Benjamin likely to be limited Week 15    Tue Dec 11, 10:03 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Kelvin Benjamin is reportedly picking up the offense quickly, but it remains unlikely he will play an extended amount of time in Week 15 versus the Los Angeles Chargers.

  Chiefs | Kelvin Benjamin should play    Tue Dec 11, 02:11 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Kelvin Benjamin expects to play Thursday, Dec. 13, against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs are banged up right now with a few key skill position players missing (or limited) in practice this week. Benjamin said he's been learning the offense since last week and offensive Eric Bienemy said the offense will be 'all hands on deck.' In his first game with his new team, we'd only count on Benjamin as a crazy deep 'what the heck' flex in Week 15.

  Chiefs | Kelvin Benjamin joining Chiefs     Thu Dec 6, 09:03 PM

Free-agent WR Kelvin Benjamin (Bills) is signing with the Kansas City Chiefs, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Benjamin has a first-round pedigree with exceptional physical tools and he's cheap. Perhaps that's all there is to this move, but it could also be a hedge against Sammy Watkins foot injury. Benjamin couldn't have landed in a better situation, but he's still unlikely to have redraft value this year and may not be with the Chiefs next year.

  Chiefs | Kelvin Benjamin visits Chiefs    Thu Dec 6, 12:34 PM

Free-agent WR Kelvin Benjamin (Bills) visited the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday, Dec. 6, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Benjamin needs to have a different approach to the game to tap into his considerable physical potential. Maybe Andy Reid could figure out how to flip that switch, but we'll believe it when we see it.

  NFL | Kelvin Benjamin not claimed    Wed Dec 5, 05:40 PM

Free-agent WR Kelvin Benjamin (Bills) went unclaimed off waivers Wednesday, Dec. 5, and is officially a free agent.

Footballguys view: Benjamin is now free to sign with any team. He was on the books for $8.4 million this year and no team wanted to take on that salary. Benjamin is likely to find a new home rather quickly but it will be for an incredibly reduced price tag.

  Bills | Kelvin Benjamin released    Tue Dec 4, 04:13 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin was released Tuesday, Dec. 4.

Footballguys view: Benjamin's time with the Bills was lackluster at best. He didn't mesh with rookie QB Josh Allen and seemed to be uninterested in gaining chemistry with the team's franchise quarterback. Benjamin finishes the 2018 with the Bills having caught 23 passes for 354 yards and one touchdown. We don't think a ton of teams will be lining up for a player who hasn't looked good since his rookie season of 2014.

  Bills | Kelvin Benjamin playing less by design    Sat Dec 1, 02:46 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin has seen his playing time decrease because the team wants to take a look at how some of the younger receivers could do with more snaps, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Footballguys view: In Week 12 against the Jaguars, Benjamin was only targeted twice and caught one pass for 32 yards. He's topped 50 yards just once all year and hasn't found the end zone since Week 2. Fantasy GMs have much better options and Benjamin isn't even worth a roster spot in some leagues.

  Bills | Kelvin Benjamin takes part in practice    Thu Nov 8, 02:33 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 8.

Footballguys view: Benjamin might not have Derek Anderson in this one, and Trumaine Johnson is due back for the Jets. He's a low-end desperation play.

  Bills | Kelvin Benjamin limited Wednesday    Wed Nov 7, 03:55 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 7.

Footballguys view: We can't trust Benjamin as anything more than a WR5 or deep flex play in Week 10. The Bills travel to play the Jets this week and they've got Derek Anderson as their starting quarterback.

  Bills | Kelvin Benjamin limited Saturday    Sat Oct 27, 02:04 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (non-injury) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 27, but is not on the injury report for Week 8.

Footballguys view: The Bills will have Derek Anderson as their starting quarterback against the Patriots on Monday night. That makes Benjamin just a WR4/deep flex option in PPR leagues...at best.

  Bills | Kelvin Benjamin posts 71 yards    Sun Oct 21, 04:41 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin caught four passes for 71 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7.

Footballguys view: Benjamin has been a viable play every time he has been on the field with Derek Anderson, so he'll have some bye/injury/emergency play value against the Patriots next week unless Nathan Peterman is installed.

  Bills | Kelvin Benjamin stays even keeled     Sat Sep 29, 06:33 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin admitted he hasn't been performing how he thought he would, nor has the Bills offense as a whole. 'I'm just working, man. Just getting better. Feeling good. We gonna keep grinding and keep building this relationship with Josh [Allen].'

Footballguys view: The Bills offense showed some life last week in a shocking road victory over the Vikings. Most of that was rookie QB Josh Allen, but Benjamin caught a season-high three passes (yes, we realize that's not much). Perhaps things are trending in the right direction for this passing game. Even if things are getting on track for Allen and Benjamin, we can't trust the veteran WR as anything more than a WR6 or 'what the heck' flex in Week 4 against the Packers.

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (hip) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin had just one catch for 10 yards on seven targets in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin caught all four of his targets for 59 yards and a touchdown in a 28-23 loss to the Carolina Panthers in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: Benjamin looked healthy and focused. If the Bills get better than expected quarterback play and Benjamin's knee is sound, he could be a value at ADP, but those are big ifs.

  Bills | Kelvin Benjamin expects to be busy    Fri Jul 6, 09:51 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin said he expects to receive 'number one targets' this year.

Footballguys view: Really, considering the alternatives on the team, who else would they give that role to? Frankly, we're not sure what that role is worth, given the uncertainty of the offense. So while he could get a lot of targets they may not be quality. His ADP is 43 right now, and we think that sounds about right. It could change when the quarterback is named, but probably not much.

  Bills | Kelvin Benjamin back at full speed    Thu May 31, 11:23 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin has looked 'leaner, stronger and most importantly faster' during OTAs, according to Dominic LoVallo of BuffaloBills.com

Footballguys view: Good news for Benjamin and the Bills here. Benjamin has been practicing fully during OTAs this year as their top wide receiver. With questionable quarterback play (no matter if Josh Allen or A.J. McCarron start), Benjamin's fantasy projections take a hit. He's WR43 (10.01) in current ADP rankings for 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bills | Kelvin Benjamin full go at OTAs    Thu May 24, 01:03 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is a full participant and off to a good start at organized team activities, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Footballguys view: The team needs him on point with Zay Jones (knee) out for the summer. There's not a lot of value in this offense (not named LeSean McCoy), especially with the questionable quarterback group, but Benjamin could be the one bright spot in the passing offense.

  Bills | Kelvin Benjamin talks on hold    Mon Apr 30, 10:33 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin won't have contract talks on an extension until at least the summer, according to general manager Brandon Beane.

Footballguys view: The Bills have to see how Benjamin fits into the new offense. Benjamin also needs to show them he will have the ability to stay healthy and make a larger impact in 2018.

  Bills | Kelvin Benjamin progressing    Wed Feb 28, 10:21 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is progressing from knee surgery, and he's expected to be ready for conditioning in April.

Footballguys view: The Bills didn't get to see Benjamin at full strength last year. Benjamin will be eased back into action as the offseason rolls along. He's got WR2 ability for fantasy owners in 2018 no matter who is tossing him the rock.

  Bills | Kelvin Benjamin to have surgery    Mon Jan 15, 12:12 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) said he will undergo knee surgery at some point this offseason.

Footballguys view: Good news for Benjamin and the Bills here. For most of his time with the Bills this year, Benjamin was basically playing on one leg. Bills head coach Sean McDermott said, "We know what Kelvin Benjamin is capable of when he's healthy. He showed his leadership while playing injured and we're excited to get him healthy this offseason."

  Bills | Kelvin Benjamin does nothing in loss    Sun Jan 7, 05:44 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin posted one reception for nine yards on two targets in the AFC Wild Card playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, Jan. 7.

Footballguys view: The Bills tried to get him some red zone work but the passes were off the mark. Benjamin was banged up with the Bills for most of the time he was there. In 2018, Benjamin should be their no1 WR but he may have a new quarterback throwing him passes. Tyrod Taylor may not be back with the Bills next season.

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) will be a limited participant in practice Friday, Jan. 5.

Footballguys view: Benjamin won't be at full strength in the Wild Card Round, but he really hasn't been since joining the Bills in 2017. They'll need him to play through this injury if they want to advance this weekend.

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 4.
