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.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin to be returner (Fri Jul 22, 07:30 PM) - San Diego Chargers WR Travis Benjamin will be the team's punt returner in 2016. Benjamin may not be used as a returner as often if he receives significant snaps at wide receiver.

Our View: Benjamin can break returns for touchdowns, so it adds a very slight bump in leagues that count return touchdowns and a more significant bump in leagues that count return yards. Benjamin still has a strong upside flex play and bye/injury wide receiver as the deep target replacement for Malcom Floyd.
