    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) caught three passes for 38 yards and one touchdown against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 14 before he left with a knee injury.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin just came back from a knee injury, so owners should look for an update on Benjamin in the near future. He could be a No. 3 receiver or flex option when Nathan Peterman is the starter because they have developed good chemistry but will be a riskier option if Tyrod Taylor starts.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 12:28pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) suffered a knee injury in Week 14 and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin recently returned from a knee injury but is back on the sidelines. Owners should know more about his status in the next day or two.

  • Posted: 12/8/2017 4:50pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin appears like he is on track to play this week after being sidelined for most of the time since joining the Bills. Owners probably should avoid Benjamin because he has not received much work in the Bills offense.

  • Posted: 12/7/2017 1:02pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin appears to have a chance to play in Week 14, so owners will need to monitor his progress. He is a risky option since he has not had a lot of work in the offense since joining the Bills and can be benched if owners have better options.

  • Posted: 12/6/2017 12:12pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 6.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin has done nothing since being traded to Buffalo. With his recent injuries and the way the Bills have been playing offensively, there's no good reason to put Benjamin into starting lineups.

  • Posted: 12/2/2017 7:38pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess has recorded at least 86 receiving yards in all three games since WR Kelvin Benjamin was traded to the Buffalo Bills, and he is averaging 8.3 targets per game in that span.

    Huddle Up: Funchess has come into his own since Benjamin was traded away, and he is an upside WR3 in Week 13 against a New Orleans Saints team that could be missing its top corner.

  • Posted: 12/1/2017 7:26am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) has been ruled out for Week 13, but he could return next week.

    Huddle Up: Zay Jones is an attractive flex option against the New England Patriots, who have been a midrange defense against the position the last five weeks.

  • Posted: 11/30/2017 9:34am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is out of practice Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin isn't expected to play this week, and Zay Jones becomes an interesting flex option against the New England Patriots.

  • Posted: 11/29/2017 5:59pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) said he does not expect to play in Week 13 but believes he will be able to play again this season.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see when Benjamin returns to practice. Zay Jones probably will be the main receiver for the Bills while Benjamin is out and could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 11/29/2017 1:19pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 29.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin is dealing with a torn meniscus and considered day to day. It doesn't sound like he'll practice an awful lot, and he is a question mark for game day at this point. He isn't a bad option for fantasy owners when healthy, but have depth on hand since he is so iffy.

  • Posted: 11/27/2017 11:23am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) has a torn meniscus, according to head coach Sean McDermott. As reported earlier, Benjamin is considered day-to-day.

    Huddle Up: It's hard to believe Benjamin can be day-to-day with a torn meniscus, but hey, football players are tough. If Benjamin can't play this week -- and don't be surprised if he can't -- then Zay Jones becomes a nice flex option again after seeing 10 targets and finding the end zone yesterday.

  • Posted: 11/27/2017 10:22am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is considered day-to-day and 'working hard' in order to return for Week 13 versus the New England Patriots, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

    Huddle Up: Even with the emergence of rookie Zay Jones, Buffalo likely needs Benjamin if it has any hope of staying with the Patriots. New England isn't the soft matchup for opposing passing games it was earlier in the season, but Benjamin's size makes him an inviting target for most quarterbacks. If he is cleared to play before Sunday, owners should be use Benjamin as a WR3.

  • Posted: 11/25/2017 8:56am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) did not travel with the team and has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin did not practice all week, so this was an expected decision. Zay Jones has come on in recent weeks and is in a good spot to produce again this week, given the plus-matchup. Jones has seen seven targets in each of the last two games and caught ten passes over that time, so he'll be flex-worthy in Week 12 if he can sustain that kind of production.

  • Posted: 11/24/2017 12:09pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin probably will be a game-time decision this week, so owners will need to check the inactive list. Owners may want to use other options in their lineups since Benjamin could be limited if he is active for the game.

  • Posted: 11/24/2017 7:12am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) remains day to day Friday, Nov. 24, and his status is uncertain for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin would have a great matchup against a banged-up Kansas City Chiefs secondary, which is in the bottom five at defending the position the last five weeks. He'd be a WR3 in fantasy if he's fit to go. If not, Zay Jones receives a big boost to maybe the top portion of the WR3 realm.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 1:38pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin is considered day-to-day and could be a game-time decision for Week 12. He is a risky option because of the injury and that he has not received a lot of work in the offense. Owners may want to avoid him this week even if he is active for the game.

  • Posted: 11/22/2017 6:57am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is day to day with a knee injury, and head coach Sean McDermott was noncommittal when asked if Benjamin would play this week. He won't practice Wednesday, Nov. 22.

    Huddle Up: Tyrod Taylor starting helps Benjamin on the field if he's able to go. However, the upside isn't there because the Bills are a mess. Benjamin is worth having as a WR3, but you really can't trust anyone beyond LeSean McCoy in that lineup.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 1:51pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was carted off in the Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Chargers in the first quarter due to a knee injury and he will not return.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin was grabbing his knee after a catch over the middle and he was taken off. The team announced rather early that he would not return, so that isn't a great sign. They're already without Jordan Matthews on the afternoon, so not making it easy for new QB Nathan Peterman.

  • Posted: 11/12/2017 7:27am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin will be one of the starting receivers against the New Orleans Saints in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin has had about two weeks to learn the offense and likely will receive a lot of playing time this week. He is a risky option because it is not known if he will have chemistry with Tyrod Taylor but can still be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in leagues.

  • Posted: 11/10/2017 7:26am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin will make his team debut Sunday, Nov. 12, against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Forget what you've come to know as a weak Saints defense in recent years because they've become an opportunistic, stout bunch. Benjamin has only had a week-and-a-half in the offense, and the tough matchup demotes him to the WR3 area.

  • Posted: 11/3/2017 7:04pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin is going to focus on learning the playbook in order to be ready to play against the New Orleans Saints in Week 10, head coach Sean McDermott said Friday, Nov. 3. 'He's already been in the playbook and he's working hard,' McDermott said. 'He wants to be around through the weekend and get up to speed as quickly as possible.'

    Huddle Up: Once Benjamin takes the field, he should become the top option in Buffalo's passing attack. However, Buffalo's commitment to the run likely makes Benjamin an upside WR3 going forward.

  • Posted: 11/1/2017 9:50pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin is '50/50' to play against the New York Jets on Thursday, Nov. 2, according to GM Brandon Beane.

    Huddle Up: Even if Benjamin is active it's difficult to gauge how much he'd play based on only being with the club a couple of days. Your best bet is to keep him on your bench due to the uncertainty of his prospective role this week.

  • Posted: 11/1/2017 7:00am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin passed his physical Wednesday, Nov. 1, and his trade to the Bills is official.

    Huddle Up: In a stroke of bad luck for Benjamin owners, the Bills play the New York Jets Thursday night, and it's a stretch to think he'll be active. Keep him benched this week.

  • Posted: 10/31/2017 5:26pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin will remain the 'X' receiver - the same spot he occupied throughout his career with the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: There's almost no chance Benjamin suits up Thursday against the New York Jets, but it would be stunning if the Bills aren't featuring him in Week 10 or 11. While offensive coordinator Rick Dennison is not familiar with him, head coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane are, so that should help him acclimate quickly. Owners should be able to keep plugging him into their lineups as a WR2 starting in Week 10.

  • Posted: 10/31/2017 1:22pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin was traded to the Buffalo Bills Tuesday, Oct. 31, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin's departure means Devin Funchess is now the Panthers' No. 1 wide receiver. He receives a nice boost in fantasy value, with Russell Shepard and Curtis Samuel also gaining fantasy relevance. Funchess and Christian McCaffrey will continue to be the primary targets in Carolina, but Shepard and Samuel are worth adding in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 10/31/2017 1:17pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin was acquired by the Buffalo Bills Tuesday, Oct. 31, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Surprisingly, Benjamin has a new home and remains the No. 1 wide receiver on his team. Tyrod Taylor desperately needed another receiving threat, so good on the Bills for giving him that. If anything, Benjamin's fantasy value might actually increase in Buffalo since he'll be away from Cam Newton's inaccurate tendencies. The bad news is that Benjamin has exactly two days to join his new team and be ready to play Thursday night. That being said, he should still be started in a favorable matchup against the New York Jets.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 1:59pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin hauled in three receptions for 39 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 8 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin visited the end zone for the first time since Week 5, and just for the second time overall this season. He has three or more catches in each of the past five outings and has re-emerged as a useful low-end WR2 across most fantasy formats. He'll look to keep it going against the visiting Falcons in Week 9.

  • Posted: 10/27/2017 4:24pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin has been targeted 25 times in the last three games and has recorded at least 50 yards in five of the last six games. He can be considered at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver this week.

  • Posted: 10/26/2017 12:09pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 26.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin is on track to play in Week 8 and has been targeted 25 times over the last three games. He will continue to be a big part of the team's passing game this week and can be a No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 10/25/2017 12:32pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Oct. 25.

    Huddle Up: As was mentioned in Cam Newton's tip, Benjamin has a hugely favorable matchup versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend. The Bucs have surrendered the third most receiving yards to the wide receiver position this year. Benjamin is comfortably in WR2 territory this week.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 2:51pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin hauled in three receptions for 65 yards on six targets in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin had a pretty decent day considering the Panthers offense managed just three points, but it's not the type of production that is going to please fantasy owners. He remains more of a WR3 or flex option heading into Week 8 against the Buccaneers.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 9:02am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 7 game.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin has been dealing with the injury for a while but will be on the field this week. He will be a risky option since he may receive limited snaps during the game and could be considered a No. 3 receiver or flex option in some leagues.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 5:56am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is expected to play in Week 7's game against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin was listed as questionable on the injury report but was a full practice participant Friday, Oct. 20. However, he has a challenging matchup this week and could see limited snaps, making him a somewhat risky fantasy option this afternoon.

  • Posted: 10/20/2017 10:07am ET

    Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is expected to play in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

    Huddle Up: Per Rivera, Benjamin had a 'good day' Friday and ran all the routes, so the concern the Carolina coaching staff had regarding his status Thursday appears to no longer be an issue. Given the matchup and the fact he is probably not operating anywhere close to 100 percent, owners are advised to bench him in fantasy if they have other similar options available.

  • Posted: 10/20/2017 9:17am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was back at practice Friday, Oct 20, sporting a sleeve on the left knee that kept him from practicing the previous two days.

    Huddle Up: Considering how this thing is played out this week, Benjamin figures to be a game-time decision. With a difficult matchup in what should be a slow-paced slugfest with the Chicago Bears, it is advisable owners sit him down if they have other decent options going. As long as he can stay healthy, Benjamin will have a number of solid matchups over the second half of the season, so he'll be of plenty of use down the road.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 8:30am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is out of practice Thursday, Oct. 19, due to knee soreness.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin is coming off of one of his best games of the season, and Friday will be a big day in gauging his playability against the Chicago Bears.

  • Posted: 10/18/2017 11:52am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is reportedly dealing with a knee injury that forced him to leave practice early Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: It's unknown at the moment whether or not it's the same knee he hurt in Week 3, but his early departure from practice is a small concern right now given the fact Benjamin had not appeared on the injury report over the last two weeks. If he were to miss Week 7, Devin Funchess would immediately slide into lead receiver duties and be worth starting in most leagues.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 9:49pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin was targeted 13 times on Thursday, Oct. 12, catching nine for 99 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin has been doing the odd-even thing this year, averaging 6.3 catches for 93 yards in Weeks 2, 4 and 6, while managing 2.3 grabs for 30 yards in the odd-numbered weeks. Fantasy owners would definitely enjoy more consistency, but Benjamin deserves to be deployed as a WR3 on a weekly basis.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 3:31pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin posted four catches, 58 yards and one touchdown on six targets in Week 5 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin was limited in practice earlier this week due to a knee injury, but he didn't seem to be affected by the injury in this one. He has four or more catches in three of his past four outings after laying an egg in Week 1. He is a dependable WR3 or flex option heading into Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night.

  • Posted: 10/6/2017 2:05pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 6, but is not on the injury report for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin should receive his normal workload this week even though he is dealing with the knee injury. He is coming off a 104-yard performance and is facing a Detroit Lions defense that has struggled at times against passing games. He should be considered as at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver this week.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 12:07pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: It appears that Benjamin is on track to play in Week 5, but owners will know more about his status later in the week. He has been a bit inconsistent this season in terms of his weekly stats but is coming off a 104-yard performance in Week 4. He can be a solid No. 3 fantasy receiver if he is active.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 4:00pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin caught all four targeted passes for 104 yards but did not score in a 33-30 win over the New England Patriots on Sunday, Oct. 1.

    Huddle Up: Considering Benjamin was held down in Week 3 to only a couple catches, the porous New England defense enabled him to come through. As Cam Newton goes, so goes Benjamin, so keep an eye on Benjamin's effort in the next week or two.

  • Posted: 9/29/2017 7:14pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 29, and is not listed on the Week 4 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin draws a favorable matchup against the porous defense of the New England Patriots, but considering he managed just two catches for eight yards against the New Orleans Saints last week, he is far from a sure thing. Consider him an upside WR3.

  • Posted: 9/28/2017 12:39pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin is on track to play in Week 4 and should have a solid role in the passing game against the New England Patriots. He can be considered a No. 3 or a flex option in most fantasy leagues if he is active.

  • Posted: 9/28/2017 11:57am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is expected to play in Week 4 as long as he does not suffer a setback, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check on Benjamin's status later in the week to see if he is still on track to play against the New England Patriots. He has been a bit inconsistent so far this season but could still be a No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 9/27/2017 10:22am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was limited to stretching and riding a stationary bike during practice Wednesday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin is reportedly not dealing with a multi-week injury, but the best owners can probably hope for this week is a game-time decision. This week's opponent - the New England Patriots - has not defended receivers well thus far, but it is going to be hard to trust anyone outside of perhaps Christian McCaffrey in the Panthers' passing game one week after they struggled against a shorthanded New Orleans Saints defense. It may be prudent to play the wait-and-see game with Benjamin this week.

  • Posted: 9/25/2017 10:17am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) learned he did sustain any structural damage from the injury that forced him from Week 3 after receiving the results of an MRI on his left knee Monday, Sept. 25.

    Huddle Up: No timetable for his return to the field has been reported yet, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he had to miss at least a game after getting bent back awkwardly early in the Week 3 loss to the New Orleans Saints. With Greg Olsen also done for a while, Devin Funchess, Curtis Samuel and Russell Shepard - along with tight end Ed Dickson - are Cam Newton's top options right now. It's a situation to avoid in fantasy.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 3:32pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) did not suffered a major injury, based on early indications, a source said Sunday, Sept. 24.

    Huddle Up: After a scare, it appears Benjamin is expected to be fine. That is good news for a struggling Carolina offense which lost Greg Olsen (foot) to a long-term injury last week. Treat Benjamin more as a WR3 or flex option heading into Week 4 at New England, if healthy.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 1:38pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin posted just two catches for eight yards on his only two targets in Week 3 against New Orleans.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin was erased by a previously suspect New Orleans pass defense, which isn't a great sign for his fantasy value going forward. Instead of picking up his game with Greg Olsen (foot) sidelined, Benjamin took a step back. He should be considered a WR3 heading into Week 4 at New England, and even that might be generous considering his results to date.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 11:51am ET

    Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) will not return to the team's Week 3 game.

    Huddle Up: Owners should find out more about Benjamin's condition after the game or in the next day or two. Devin Funchess would receive a bigger role in the passing game if Benjamin misses time but is not a great fantasy option.
