Arrelious Benn says that he is almost ready to return from a knee injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Arrelious Benn says that he expects to be ready to play by the regular season opener after missing all of training camp with a knee injury. He has been increasing activity regularly and could be back at full practice soon. Benn, a second round pick in 2010 out of Illinois, had 30 catches for 441 yards and 3 touchdowns in 2011.

Fantasy Implications: Benn has so far underachieved in his NFL career and the additions of Vincent Jackson and Jordan Shipley could move him even further down the depth chart, especially after missing the entire preseason. It's unlikely that he would be able to contribute much during the first part of the season after missing so much time. He has just one game in his career over 100 yards, coming in week 13 of the 2010 season.
