    Kansas City Chiefs WR Kelvin Benjamin was targeted twice, catching one pass for 17 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: If you're a glass half full kind of person, Benjamin was just as involved offensively as the likes of Chris Conley, Demetrius Harris and Demarcus Robinson, so it seems like the Chiefs are serious about playing him. On the glass half empty side, the passing game runs through Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill and the backs, leaving precious little for anyone else.

  • Posted: 12/11/2018 7:03pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Kelvin Benjamin is reportedly picking up the offense quickly, but it remains unlikely he will play an extended amount of time in Week 15 versus the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: It's understandable considering he hasn't been with the team two weeks yet. Still, Tyreek Hill will almost certainly be limited in some way, shape or form and the Chiefs may be down to Damien Williams as their starting running back. Despite the presence of Patrick Mahomes, owners should be able to do better than Benjamin in their starting lineups during the fantasy playoffs.

  • Posted: 12/11/2018 11:11am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Kelvin Benjamin expects to play Thursday, Dec. 13, against the Los Angeles Chargers. Benjamin said he's been learning the offense since last week and offensive Eric Bienemy said the offense will be 'all hands on deck.'

    Huddle Up: Benjamin's practice status will be updated later, but it sounds like he'll be making his Chiefs debut. If Sammy Watkins is ruled out then Benjamin may be more involved, but he's still a risky start in the fantasy playoffs.

  • Posted: 12/7/2018 11:56am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Kelvin Benjamin is not expected to be active for the Week 14 game but may be available for Week 15, according to head coach Andy Reid.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin probably will have a limited offensive role when he plays because he needs to learn the offseason and probably will not have much fantasy value.

  • Posted: 12/6/2018 6:03pm ET

    Free-agent WR Kelvin Benjamin (Bills) is signing with the Kansas City Chiefs, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin is having another disappointing season, and he won't be high enough in the pecking order for a loaded Kansas City offense to warrant owning.

  • Posted: 12/4/2018 1:13pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin was released Tuesday, Dec. 4.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin has had a season to forget in what has largely been a season to forget for the Bills. Zay Jones has taken over as the most valuable wide receiver in Buffalo and Benjamin has yet to mesh well with rookie quarterback Josh Allen. Benjamin can be dropped if he was still rostered.

  • Posted: 11/25/2018 5:11pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin managed just one catch for 32 yards on two targets in Week 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin has been held to 45 or fewer receiving yards in 10 of his 11 games this season, and he has just one catch with five targets across the past two outings. He is only worth keeping around in the deepest of fantasy leagues at this point.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 2:31pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin was targeted three times during the Week 10 game against the New York Jets but finished the game with zero catches.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin was posting decent numbers over the last several games but was held off the score sheet against the Jets. Owners can consider benching Benjamin in Week 12 if they have better options available.

  • Posted: 11/9/2018 11:18am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 9, and is not on the injury report for Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin probably will lead the team in targets again this week but has posted more than 50 yards only once this season. He can be benched in most fantasy leagues because owners likely have better options available.

  • Posted: 11/8/2018 11:33am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 8.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin has been targeted at least five times in each of the last seven games but has posted at least 50 yards in only one of those games. He can be avoided in leagues this week if owners have better options available.

  • Posted: 11/7/2018 12:55pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 7.

    Huddle Up: The struggling Bill has caught just 20 passes all year and looked sluggish doing so. His fantasy value is minimal at best. Don't start him unless it's as a flex in deep, deep leagues.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 3:15pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin caught four passes for 40 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin has been targeted at least five times in all but one game this season but has posted more than 50 yards in only one game. He should continue to be the top receiver for the Bills but may only be used against favorable opponent in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/29/2018 8:38pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin posted two grabs for 45 yards on seven targets in the Week 8 game against the New England Patriots on Monday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin was targeted frequently, but he just couldn't get on the same page as Derek Anderson, who ended up leaving the game late with an injury. KB might need to re-adjust to Nathan Peterman, or perhaps Josh Allen heading into next week. The quarterback carousel is not helping the fantasy value of anyone in Buffalo right now.

  • Posted: 10/27/2018 11:04am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (non-injury) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 27, but is not on the injury report for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin had his best game of the season last week and appears to have good chemistry with Derek Anderson. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but is not a must-start option for owners.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 1:41pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin caught four passes for 71 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin had his most productive game of the season this week and appeared to have good chemistry with Derek Anderson. Benjamin could be a flex option for owners next week but can be benched if better options are available.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 9:16am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin and Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker are possible trade targets for the Dallas Cowboys, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation over the next week to see if the Cowboys are able to add Benjamin or Parker. Both receivers probably would see an increase in their fantasy value if they join the Cowboys, but neither would be a weekly starting option.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 6:15pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin posted two receptions for 43 yards on six targets in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: He hasn't had a touchdown since Week 2, and his 43 yards actually represent a season high. Are you sure Cam Newton was the problem in Carolina? Treat Benjamin as a WR6 heading into Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 1:34pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin was held to just one reception for 11 yards on a team-high five targets in Week 5 against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin has been a complete disaster from a fantasy perspective, as he has been limited to just one catch in three of his five games while totaling just seven grabs overall. It's beginning to look like it wasn't Cam Newton holding Benjamin from being a star, but perhaps it is Benjamin. He isn't worth using in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 6.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 1:33pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin posted just one grab for 34 yards on six targets in Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin has totaled just seven grabs for 92 yards on 21 targets with one foray into the end zone through four games. As such, he is only worth a look as a WR6 for depth in most fantasy leagues until he starts producing more consistently. The Bills host the Titans in Week 5.

  • Posted: 9/29/2018 3:33pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin admitted he hasn't been performing how he thought he would, nor has the Bills offense as a whole. 'I'm just working, man. Just getting better. Feeling good. We gonna keep grinding and keep building this relationship with Josh [Allen}.'

    Huddle Up: LeSean McCoy was really the only fantasy relevant player in Buffalo heading into 2018, but he and the offense as a whole have under performed. Allen broke out last week but has to prove that he can succeed on a consistent basis. As for Benjamin, he's a sleeper candidate this week as the Bills will likely be playing catch-up.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 1:26pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin posted three grabs for 29 yards on five targets in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin made headlines during the preseason with critical words about Cam Newton and his ability to make Benjamin better, but really no quarterback has been able to unlock the receiver's potential. He has six grabs for 58 yards on 15 targets so far. No fantasy value here until he starts producing more consistently. The Bills meet the Packers on the road in Week 4.

  • Posted: 9/21/2018 11:05am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 21, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin is off to a slow start this season and probably will struggle again this week against the Minnesota Vikings. He should be avoided in all leagues and is probably a depth receiver for owners at this point.

  • Posted: 9/20/2018 11:43am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (hip) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin appears to be on track to play in Week 3 but has recorded only three catches and 29 yards in two games. Owners in all leagues should consider benching Benjamin this week because of the tough matchup.

  • Posted: 9/19/2018 10:38am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (hip) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin is Buffalo's top receiving threat, but that's really not saying much. He did score last week, but he's in arguably the most untrustworthy offenses in football and the matchup with the Minnesota Vikings is one of the toughest on the Week 3 slate. Starting him is folly.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 3:09pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin caught two passes for 19 yards and one touchdown against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin entered this season as the team's top receiver but only has 29 yards in two games. Owners in all leagues can keep Benjamin on the bench until he is more productive.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 5:04pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin had just one catch for 10 yards on seven targets in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: The Buffalo offense was a disaster, and Benjamin will struggle in the passing game until someone emerges as a productive and consistent quarterback. Nathan Peterman was terrible, and Josh Allen wasn't much better. The Bills host the Chargers in Week 2, but only consider Benjamin as a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Posted: 8/26/2018 6:23pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin caught two of his four targets for 39 yards in a 26-13 preseason loss to the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday, Aug. 26.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin is the closest thing the Bills have to a go-to receiver, but between the quarterback situation and Buffalo's run-first mentality, he's a WR3, at best.

  • Posted: 8/9/2018 7:33pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin caught all four of his targets for 59 yards and a touchdown in a 28-23 loss to the Carolina Panthers in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 9.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin should be the go-to target in Buffalo's passing game, but the quarterback situation is questionable and traps Benjamin in WR3 territory.

  • Posted: 7/6/2018 6:51pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin said he expects to receive 'number one targets' this year.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin should be the No. 1 receiver for Buffalo this year, but we are talking about a run-first offense without a proven quarterback. Being the top target for the Bills will likely only translate to WR3 production for Benjamin.

  • Posted: 5/31/2018 8:23pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin has looked 'leaner, stronger and most importantly faster' during OTAs, according to Dominic LoVallo of BuffaloBills.com

    Huddle Up: Benjamin can be a matchup nightmare because of his size, but Buffalo's quarterback situation and run-heavy philosophy are going to limit his upside. At best, he's a WR3 because of his potential in the red zone.

  • Posted: 5/24/2018 10:03am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is a full participant and off to a good start at organized team activities, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin is the No. 1 wide receiver on the Bills and will see a high volume of targets if he can stay on the field. That being said, the Bills' quarterback crew is an unreliable one, which limits Benjamin's upside. Drafting him as more than a low-end WR3 or high-end WR4 is playing with fire.
