Arrelious Benn is questionable for Week 1, but should be ready to play. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Arrelious Benn (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Week 1 against the Carolina Panthers. Benn suffered an MCL sprain early in training camp and missed most of August, but he was a full participant all week in practice and should be ready to go on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Benn still has a few obstacles to overcome before he can be considered in fantasy leagues - namely, being behind Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams on the depth chart, and possibly fighting Preston Parker for playing time in the slot while missing a whole month preparing for Greg Schiano's new offense. Don't bother with him for Week 1.
