Benjamin caught two of his four targets for 24 yards in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Benjamin should have had a big game Sunday, as he was left wide open for what appeared to be a long touchdown early in the fourth quarter, but the speedy receiver instead let the ball carom off his hands. That play seemed to sum up the Chargers offense Sunday, as the entire passing unit in particular was ineffective. For the moment, Benjamin is clearly the third option at the wide receiver spot, as Tyrell Williams and Dontrelle Inman have deservedly become focal points in the Chargers' aerial attack.

Benjamin snagged just one catch for eight yards in the win over the Texans on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Perhaps more alarming to fantasy owners than Benjamin's lone catch was the fact that he saw just two targets despite quarterback Philip Rivers throwing the ball 30 times, as fellow wide receivers Dontrelle Inman and Tyrell Williams saw an overwhelming share of the targets. Considering Benjamin was coming off a knee injury that forced him to miss Week 10, it's not a given that the 26-year-old was completely healthy following the Chargers' bye week, but the fact that he was able to practice fully all week makes his usage Sunday maddening to say the least. For the moment, Benjamin appears to be relegated to a minor role within the passing attack, but that could easily change if Williams, who was forced to leave Sunday's game with a shoulder injury, would miss any time.

Benjamin (knee) is officially active for Sunday's Week 12 tilt versus the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, one of Philip Rivers' top targets will be at his disposal against a talented Texans secondary. Benjamin practiced fully all week and should therefore be out there without limitations.

Benjamin (knee) is expected to play Sunday against the Texans, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

EDGE Analysis

Benjamin is officially listed as questionable despite practicing fully all week, but the Chargers' bye week gave him enough time to recover from the injury, and he could be a popular option for quarterback Philip Rivers.

Though he practiced fully all week, Benjamin (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Given that the wideout looked good in practice earlier this week, and was able to practice in full three straight days, we'd expect him to return to action following a one-game absence and subsequent Week 11 bye. The questionable designation makes that outcome confirming, however, as the Chargers' 1:00 ET kickoff Sunday approaches.

Benjamin (knee) practiced fully Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Per the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Chargers' bye week assisted Benjamin greatly, with the wideout showing no limitation stemming from the knee injury that had previously slowed him. He's thus on track to suit up Sunday against the Texans.

Benjamin (knee) was present for Monday's practice, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wednesday's practice will provide a listing of Benjamin's level of participation, but the fact that he was present for Monday's session, following the Chargers' bye week, would appear to bode well for the wideout's prospects of returning to action Sunday against the Texans.

Benjamin (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

With Benjamin out Sunday, Tyrell Williams and Dontrelle Inman are in line to head the Chargers' Week 10 wideout corps.

Benjamin (knee) is considered doubtful to play in Sunday's game, Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Considering Benjamin was unable to practice all week, it doesn't seem likely the speedy wide receiver will be able to play Sunday against the Dolphins. Given the 4:05 ET kickoff, fantasy owners may want to play it safe and keep Benjamin on their bench until after the Chargers' Week 11 bye.

Benjamin (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

While teammate Tyrell Williams (knee) was able to practice in a limited capacity Thursday, Benjamin was held out of practice for a second consecutive day, a sign that the speedy receiver may not be available to play Sunday. More information should arrive following Friday's injury report, but for now, fantasy owners may want to start planning as if Benjamin will be unable to play against the Dolphins.
