It’s unlikely Kelvin Benjamin will play an extended amount of time on Thursday, but the Chiefs’ offense may need help at wide receiver with Sammy Watkins sidelined with a foot injury and leading receiver Tyreek Hill limited in practice this week after sustaining a heel injury last weekend against Baltimore.

Fantasy Impact:

The story said Benjamin had his first practice last Friday, but could factor in against the Chargers. He also may not even be active. Obviously he can't be trusted as a fantasy option just yet.

Scouting Report

Week 13 at Miami Dolphins

It's pretty hard to put up any fantasy numbers as a wide receiver when your team isn' t throwing the ball. Kelvin Benjamin was targeted twice last week and that was one off of the team-high. QB Josh Allen only threw 13 passes total.

Buffalo's offense has struggled all season and Benjamin's numbers have mirrored those numbers. If you are hanging onto Benjamin waiting for that to change, you are wasting a roster spot with him or any other Bills receiver. Keep them all on the waiver wire.
