Summary

Travis Benjamin, in his fourth year with the Browns, had a breakout season in 2015. He established himself as the team's big-play threat early in the season, scoring four touchdowns in the first three games. His production tailed off late in the season as the whole passing game struggled. Benjamin will get a quarterback upgrade in San Diego, where he'll replace Malcom Floyd as the team's deep threat lining up across from Keenan Allen. There will be more competition for targets in San Diego, so one can reasonably expect a drop-off in Benjamin's production this season, but he's still a relevant fantasy prospect with some boom-or-bust potential.

Latest News

Chargers | Travis Benjamin has quiet debut (Sat Aug 20, 08:37 AM) - San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin caught one pass for 11 yards in the preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals Friday, Aug. 19.

Our View: Benjamin is getting the limited work that core starters get. He's underrated as a bench wide receiver pick that you can get in the 9th-10th round. Benjamin should get plenty of targets as a deep threat in a pass-first offense.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin building trust with Rivers (Wed Aug 17, 02:32 AM) - San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin was singled out by QB Philip Rivers for his work during a joint practice against the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday, Aug. 16, specifically for their timing on a comeback route that Rivers deemed his 'favorite play' of the evening.

Our View: Benjamin should improve the "deep threat" receiver option from Malcom Floyd's level of play in recent years. Philip Rivers is easily the best quarterback he has played with in his career, so Benjamin might end up being a value as a bench receiver in the 9th/10th round of drafts.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin practicing (Mon Aug 15, 07:24 PM) - San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (undisclosed) is participating in practice Monday, Aug. 15.

Our View: We're curious to see how Benjamin fits in with his new team. The speedy veteran should start opposite Keenan Allen, and we see him as a WR4 with upside for fantasy owners in 2016.
