2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
It would’ve been almost laughable to project Travis Benjamin as a top-30 fantasy wide receiver heading into the 2015 season, but by the halfway point in the year, it would’ve been even more laughable to leave him off the list. As it turned out, Benjamin blew away all expectations as he led the Browns wide receivers with 68 receptions for 966 yards and five touchdowns – nearly doubling the next closest Cleveland wideout, Brian Hartline, who finished with just 523 yards on the season. Benjamin’s breakout season came in a contract year allowing him to capitalize on his latest accomplishments. The fourth-year wideout eventually decided to sign with San Diego, a team that threw the ball as much as anyone in 2015. Benjamin is expected to start opposite Keenan Allen, taking over where Malcom Floyd left off when he retired this past off-season. Floyd was one of the best deep threats in the league over the course of his career and while Benjamin doesn’t have the same type of physical height and weight measurables, he is a burner capable of making huge plays down the field. Benjamin’s surprising outburst in production in 2015 was primarily due to his big play ability. Only three wide receivers – Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr. and Sammy Watkins – had more receptions of 40 or more yards than Benjamin.

While his production did tank in the final five games, suggesting that his numbers may have been a bit more of a fluke than an actual representation of his skill set, there is still plenty to like now that he is in San Diego. Cleveland’s quarterback situation was about as bad as they come and a veteran passer like Rivers should lead to more consistent fantasy numbers from this young wideout, even if his overall numbers don’t increase much.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Keenan Allen out for season
Suffered torn ACL, minor cartilage damage in Week 1 loss
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 12, 6:10 pm

San Diego Chargers
Chargers coach Mike McCoy confirmed that receiver Keenan Allen suffered an ACL tear in his right knee and is done for the year after the team received results from an MRI on Monday. The Chargers will place Allen on injured reserve, and use his vacant roster spot to activate rookie defensive end Joey Bosa from the exempt list. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Allen also suffered some minor cartilage damage in addition to the ACL tear. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Less than one year after suffering a lacerated kidney, Allen is getting hit with another major injury. While Antonio Gates and Danny Woodhead should be locked into their respective TE1 and high-end RB2 designations in PPR leagues with the likely bump in volume they are about to receive, San Diego will also expand Travis Benjamin's role. The Chargers also love Tyrell Williams, and he could be the one that ends up replacing Allen as a starter. Williams is worth a speculative add in all leagues.


Injury Stevie Johnson suffers knee injury
Carried off the field
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Jul 31, 4:30 pm

San Diego Chargers
Chargers wide receiver Steve Johnson was carried off the field Sunday with a right knee injury after going down in a pass drill. Johnson, who applied no pressure to his right leg as he was carried off, was examined by trainers for several minutes before he was taken inside. (San Diego Union Tribune)

FFToday's Take: No word yet on the severity but there appears to be some legitimate concern for veteran. Johnson had been running with the first team during OTAs and the early portions of camp. Travis Benjamin and Dontrelle Inman would likely see a usage increase if Johnson misses any significant time.
