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.
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.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot, doubtful) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is doubtful for Week 14. He suffered a setback with his foot and will miss another 4-5 weeks, so Chris Conley will have a chance to continue playing increased snaps and targets. The Chiefs signed Kelvin Benjamin, but he’ll probably serve as depth.
Benjamin has three catches and nine targets over the last three games, including a zero-catch performance in Week 10 against the Jets. Benjamin's only touchdown came in Week 2 against the Chargers and has just 23 catches for 354 yards this season.
