Tampa Bay wide receiver Arrelious Benn believe he'll return to action in week 2. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Arrelious Benn told Bucs beat writer Stephen Holder that he's confident he will play in week 2 against the Giants. The third-year wide receiver has been out for more than a month with a knee issue.

Fantasy Analysis: With one career game over 100 yards and after a month on the sidelines, Benn is not a roster option in the foreseeable future. On one hand, the Giants just got burned up good by all three of the Cowboys top wide receivers but not only does Benn need to shake of the rust, he needs to show that there's something underneath it. He had eight games (out of 14) last season with fewer than 30 yards after being a high second round pick in 2010.
