Travis Benjamin injury update: Probable, still not a fantasy option

Rob Carr

Travis Benjamin is probable for Week 8 against the Chargers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns WR Travis Benjamin (hamstring) is officially listed as probable for Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers. Benjamin had a full week of practice and is in no danger of missing the game. He sat out in Weeks 5 and 6 with lingering hamstring issues, but returned in Week 7.

The rookie wideout has just eight catches for 115 yards and one TD as he's battled injuries.

Fantasy Impact: With Mohamed Massaquoi still questionable, Benjamin will likely slide into the No. 3 WR role behind Greg Little and Josh Gordon. Cleveland's pass offense is improving as Brandon Weeden looks like a quick learner, but their receivers (outside possibly Gordon) are still too inconsistent to rely on in fantasy.

Keeper/dynasty owners may want to keep an eye on Benjamin, who's shown some flashes, but he's well off the radar in single-season leagues.
