Let me be clear - I'm not a fan of Benjamin the player, but I am a fan of the targets he'll see with no other viable wide receiver in Buffalo. It was the reason he saw 115-plus targets in Carolina, and the quarterback situation wasn't much better (from an accuracy standpoint), but he was able to finish as a top-24 receiver multiple times. Targets first, talent second in fantasy football. As long as Benjamin shows he's healthy when drafts start taking place, he's worthy of a top-40 wide receiver pick.

Kelvin Benjamin held to one catch in Wild Card loss

Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin was unable to make a significant impact in his team's Wild Card loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Benjamin was targeted just twice in the contest, hauling in just one reception for 9 yards.

Fantasy Impact

The game was mostly a defensive slog, which had a significant impact on the Bills offensive production, particularly their passing game. Benjamin has not delivered on his potential since joining the Bills via trade mid-season, mostly due to injury, and he carries a hefty price tag relative to his production should the Bills elect to hold onto him under the terms of his current contract heading into 2018. On the other hand, it's easy to envision a healthy Benjamin being a productive contributor for the Bills, given their current lack of reliable playmakers at the position. Bottom line: his prospects going forward are too murky to accurately assess at this time, due to the myriad variables in play.
