Bolts Beat: WR Tyrell Williams could benefit most after Keenan Allen loss

Monday, September 12, 2016, 7:26am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Speed receiver Travis Benjamin is the most likely candidate to get a bump in targets because of his past production in the league. Not only can Philip Rivers target Benjamin on vertical routes, but he also should get some looks on screens and crossing routes where he can use his quickness and speed.

Dontrelle Inman is a veteran who’s been in San Diego’s system for three seasons, earning the trust of Rivers.

But the player who could benefit the most is Tyrell Williams. The second-year pro finished with two receptions for 71 yards against the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact:

Like Allen, at 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, Williams is a big-bodied receiver with good speed and lateral quickness who offers a big target for Rivers, the story said. Williams got a lot of positive press throughout camp and one has to figure he'll be next up to get a chance. He seems worth a claim off the wire if you're looking for help at the position.

Scouting Report

Week 4 vs. New Orleans
Travis Benjamin has stepped up pretty nicely in the absence of Keenan Allen. Last week, he caught four passes for 82 yards on seven targets and in two full games without Allen has a line of 10-197-2 (13).

Benjamin gets a great rank this week coming in as a solid WR1 option at ninth on our WR list. San Diego gets the Saints at home, who are 13th in allowing fantasy points to WRs. This may be about as high as you'll see Benjamin ranked on our list this season, so he's a pretty safe start for owners. Benjamin has another friendly matchup next week against the Raiders before things get pretty tough for a stretch.
