Summary

Benjamin remains far more valuable to the Chargers than to the fantasy world. He wears a number of hats, both in Philip Rivers' offense and on special teams, and his value earned him a one-year extension in April. Still, his role as a producer in the pass game has fallen mightily. Last year he drew 39% of team snaps from Weeks 9-17, but drew just 17 targets over that span and topped 11 yards only 3 times.
