2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
The former first-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft out of Florida State delivered an uninspired first season with Buffalo after getting traded from Carolina. Benjamin caught 48 balls for 692 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games with Buffalo as the No.1 receiving option for then quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

Benjamin projects to be the No.1 receiver once again for Buffalo in 2018, however, Taylor has been replaced by either AJ McCarron or rookie Josh Allen, and the Bills lost three of five starting offensive linemen from the previous year.

At 6-5, 245 pounds, Benjamin has the build of a tight end and not a wide receiver, and the former Seminole's lack of speed is a detriment for a wide receiver going against the No.1 cornerback on opposing defenses. Although his large frame hurts him in creating separation off the line and on downfield routes, his 6-5 frame and above average leaping ability makes him an excellent red zone target for whoever starts at quarterback for the Bills.

With a sub-par career catch rate of 57%, Benjamin will need a premium number of targets to garner consideration as a viable No.3 WR. Although the Bills project to be a lousy team on the defensive side of the ball and will likely be chasing points with second-half deficits, Benjamin will probably be relegated to low-end No.3 WR or flex play consideration.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Sammy Watkins out 4-6 weeks
Foot injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 7, 11:30 am

Kansas City Chiefs
Update: Sammy Watkins is out 4-6 weeks, according to a source. (Sam Mellinger on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It appears Watkins re-injured his foot in Thursday's practice which would explain the Kelvin Benjamin signing yesterday. The Chiefs have now lost two key offensive players in the last week. Chris Conley should continue to start in Watkins place while Benjamin gets up to speed on the offense.


Injury Bills cut Kelvin Benjamin, Andre Holmes
Bills making changes at wide receiver
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Dec 4, 3:35 pm

Buffalo Bills
Sources: The #Bills just released veteran WR Andre Holmes and WR Kelvin Benjamin. Wow. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Benjamin's been a bust this season totaling 23 catches, 354 yards, 1 TD on 62 targets. Releasing Benjamin and Holmes leaves Buffalo with Zay Jones and Robert Foster as the top two wideouts. Both can be left on your waiver wire unless you're desperate.
