Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 12 vs JAX (2 / 1 / 32 / 0 rec)
Kelvin Benjamin's lone reception was a good catch and run across the middle. Benjamin has been inconsistent in both play and targets this season, so his continued work with Josh Allen is important to monitor when he plays at Miami next week.
2018 Week 10 vs NYJ (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Kelvin Benjamin was held without a catch against the Jets. He was underthrown on a deep perimeter throw early in the game and dropped an end zone fade while falling to the ground on what would have been a touchdown. Benjamin has a bye next week before facing Jacksonville in week 12.
2018 Week 9 vs CHI (9 / 4 / 40 / 0 rec)
Kelvin Benjamin led the Bills in targets with 9 but struggled against the Chicago Bears defense in a blowout loss. Benjamin was the target of an interception on a poorly thrown ball by Nathan Peterman. Benjamin had two opportunities near the goal line, with a 50/50 ball that was broken up and a crossing route where he was tackled short of the end zone. Benjamin frequently worked across the middle in the game and managed to hold onto a reception on a crossing route despite a big hit. Benjamin will face the New York Jets next Sunday.
2018 Week 8 vs NE (7 / 2 / 45 / 0 rec)
Benjamin saw a season-high seven targets against the Patriots, but struggled to separate at the top of his routes. His most successful environment was on deep jump ball targets, of which two were poor throws by Derek Anderson and another was tipped away in tight coverage. Benjamin did make a wow play downfield on a high point reception and haul in a one-handed catch in garbage time. Benjamin added a critical blocking penalty on a chunk LeSean McCoy gain and a drop and offensive pass interference penalty on the same play to add to his struggles.
2018 Week 7 vs IND (5 / 4 / 71 / 0 rec)
Kelvin Benjamin showed a good rapport with former teammate Derek Anderson against Indianapolis. Benjamin was targeted on perimeter on curls and a back shoulder throw he was able to transition to a run after the catch for a chunk gain. Benjamin was also the target in the intermediate but overthrown for an interception.
2018 Week 6 vs HOU (6 / 2 / 43 / 0 rec)
Kelvin Benjamin had an inefficient game despite finishing second on the team in targets. Benjamin's lone big play was a deep throw from Josh Allen where he made a contested catch down the field. Benjamin was also the target on a curl route that was jumped by Jonathan Joseph for a game winning pick-6. The throw was telegraphed, but Benjamin did little to prevent the easy interception.
2018 Week 5 vs TEN (5 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Kelvin Benjamin was the most targeted Buffalo receiver (5) but managed only one catch on the day. His lone catch was a nice play action pass where Benjamin was able to run over the coverage of Tennessee's linebackers. Benjamin's only other catchable target was a curl route where he was unable to get out of his break before Allen's pass was on him.
2018 Week 4 vs GB (6 / 1 / 34 / 0 rec)
Kelvin Benjamin had six targets, but only secured one, a long-busted play. Multiple targets to Benjamin were poorly thrown by Josh Allen, including the last target, where Allen led Benjamin into a scary hit that left Benjamin motionless on the ground. Benjamin was able to leave the field under his own power.
2018 Week 3 vs MIN (5 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)
Kelvin Benjamin was inconsistent on Sunday against Minnesota. He had two early drops, including a red zone slant that would have set up Buffalo with a first and goal inside the five-yard line. He was better later in the game, including a good back shoulder throw. Benjamin has struggled recently with drops, but Josh Allen has continued to look his way in the passing game.
2018 Week 2 vs LAC (3 / 2 / 19 / 1 rec)
After being heavily targeted in week one, Kelvin Benjamin was limited against the Chargers to only three targets but converted one on a post for a touchdown. Benjamin may a good catch on the play in tight coverage to haul in a Josh Allen fast ball. Benjamin was not targeted in the first half.
2018 Week 1 vs BAL (7 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Kelvin Benjamin struggled against the Ravens. Benjamin had two bad drops, one a back-shoulder throw and second an end zone target that should have been a touchdown. Benjamin managed only one catch on a team high seven targets.
