Benjamin is a classic deep threat who shouldn't be falling to the end of best ball drafts. He played through an injury during the second half of the season and even if rookie Mike Williams secures a big role, Benjamin is still has the best vertical speed in this wide receiver group and should contribute at least a few big play scores to reward those who pay the minimal ticket price for his best ball services.

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 were 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 upon his potential return in October. Benjamin has potential starter value until that time, if not longer.
