Chargers WR Travis Benjamin continues to stand out

Tuesday, August 15, 2017, 12:57pm

ESPN 1500 - [Full Article]

Travis Benjamin has been one of the breakout performers through the first two weeks of training camp, making big plays on a regular basis.

And that continued in last weekend’s preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks. Benjamin got behind Seattle’s secondary and Kellen Clemens hit him in stride for a 74-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.

Related players: Keenan Allen, Antonio Gates, Hunter Henry

Fantasy Impact:

Benjamin is now fully healthy from a PCL knee sprain and says he has a better understanding of the offense which has given him more confidence. The hope for the Chargers is Benjamin's vertical threat opens up room for Allen, Gates and Henry.

Schefter: Chargers WR Mike Williams may need season-ending back surgery

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

The Los Angeles Chargers are still hoping to avoid it, but first-round pick Mike Williams might need back surgery on his herniated disk that would end his rookie season, league sources tell ESPN.

Williams recently received a second epidural on his herniated disk in a last-ditch effort to have him ready at some time during training camp, though the Chargers are preparing as if he will not be ready by that time, per sources.

The team still is hoping that Williams will respond positively to the second epidural, but also knows there's a real chance he will not and his rookie year will be over before it begins.

Fantasy Impact:

This is obviously devastating news for Williams, but there have been negative reports surrounding the back all offseason. This is a big boost for Tyrell Williams' stock, and he'll no longer be flying under the radar in early drafts. He had a terrific 2016 season, showed very well as a route-runner, and should still be able to produce with Keenan Allen back in the lineup.

Chargers coach Mike McCoy gave his players the entire bye week off with the hope that some of the injured players could heal up and make it back to the practice field.

With players returning to Chargers Park for a Monday practice, it appears that McCoy accomplished his goal.

Receiver Travis Benjamin, who missed San Diego’s loss to the Miami Dolphins two weeks ago with a sprained right knee, practiced on Monday and appears on track to play on Sunday against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Impact:

Benjamin said he got time to relax and get healthy during the bye week, and felt good getting back to practice.

Williams (knee) will play today but Benjamin (knee) is out. Dontrelle Inman could see a bump in catches as a result. TE Hunter Henry will also play which could put a dent in Antonio Gates end numbers but the team could use more two-TE sets.
