Travis Benjamin spent most of 2019 on IR with a quad injury, but is a deep threat when on the field. Kyle Shanahan may find creative ways to use Benjamin in 2020, but the 49ers have a plethora of receivers, muddling their fantasy value.
LAC WR Travis Benjamin - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 6 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
In Week 5, Benjamin was questionable to play but played 57% of the snaps and finished with one reception on two targets for 13 yards, 4% of the team targets, and 13% of the team air yards. Benjamin should continue to be used as the Charger's third wide receiver because Dontrelle Inman is on injured reserve with a quad injury.
