Arrelious Benn placed on injured reserve: Fantasy implications

Arrelious Benn has been placed on injured reserve by the Buccaneers with a knee injury. We break down the fantasy implications.


Arrelious Benn has been placed on injured reserve due to a knee injury, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Thursday. Benn re-injured his knee during last week's game against the Carolina Panthers, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Benn has now been placed on injured reserve twice in his three seasons in the league. He finishes the 2012 season with just four receptions for 26 yards.

Fantasy Impact: The Bucs signed David Douglas to replace Benn on the roster. Douglas doesn't have very big shoes to fill, considering Benn's limited involvement in the offense. Benn has just 59 receptions since being drafted in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft.

If you're looking for fantasy production out of the Buccaneers' receiving corps, Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams are still your best bets.
