Summary

In 2015, Kelvin Benjamin broke 1,000 yards and it's been all downhill since. Last season he was sent from Carolina to Buffalo but that didn't improve things as he saw his targets, receptions, yards and touchdown totals drop like rocks. He was also banged up, something which we suspected in his final games with the Panthers. He is supposed to be 100 percent healthy this offseason, which is critical since Zay Jones has just undergone surgery and there's precious little talent beyond those two for the passing offense to utilize. Even if he is healthy, Benjamin faces several hurdles if he is to be a fantasy factor. First of all, the quarterback. Benjamin will either have unproven A.J. McCarron or rookie Josh Allen throwing to him. Nathan Peterman is an option but if he's anything like he looked last year, that's the worst option. Secondly, Benjamin resides in a run-first offense, which will focus on LeSean McCoy. Third of all, as the most proven of the wide receivers, Benjamin will get the most defensive attention. On top of all that, Benjamin has looked so average the last few years that it could be that his previous success was an outlier. All of that makes Benjamin a shaky fantasy option as more than bench depth. (May 31)

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.

Our 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.
