Benjamin had surgery in January to repair a partially torn PCL that he played through in 2016. No timetable for his return has been discussed.

Summary

A dangerous speedster, last year's free-agent signee from Cleveland earned a pair of 100-yard weeks during the first 5 weeks of the season. However, his 28 catches, 394 yards, and 2 scores was over half of his production for the year, because he tore his PCL early on and played through the injury. He had arthroscopic surgery in February and should be ready for training camp. It's possible that Allen and Benjamin could rotate turns in the slot thanks to the emergence of Tyrell Williams and the addition of rookie Mike Williams. However, look for the Benjamin to be the odd man out if Mike Williams performs well early. Benjamin has potential starter value but until there are injuries or document struggles with the players likely ahead of him on the depth chart, he's a late-round pick at best. (May 25)

Chargers | Travis Benjamin as fast as ever (Sun Jun 18, 09:21 PM) - Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin's vertical speed is a 'game changer' for the offense, according to head coach Anthony Lynn, and Lynn said he wants Benjamin to return punts this season.

Our View: Benjamin has the speed to take the top off the defense. If healthy, he can be a favorite deep target for QB Philip Rivers. Benjamin partially tore his PCL in 2016 and played through the injury. In January, he had surgery to repair the injury. Fantasy owners should watch to see if Benjamin can produce in a cramped WR corps with the Chargers. As the no4 WR on the depth chart, Benjamin is unlikely to be much of a fantasy factor in 2017.
