Benjamin grabbed four of seven passes for 82 yards in Sunday's 26-22 loss at Indianapolis. He also lost a fumble on the last play of the game.

EDGE Analysis

Benjamin hasn't seen a ton of targets through three weeks (21 looks), but he's made big plays like he did Sunday, with a 43-yard catch. With Keenan Allen and Danny Woodhead both out for the season, there's a major opportunity for Benjamin, and to a lesser degree Tyrell Williams to put up big numbers with Philip Rivers. The speedy wideout has a great matchup next week, facing the Saints at home.

Benjamin caught all six of his targets for 115 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 38-14 win over the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Benjamin filled the void left by Keenan Allen's season-ending torn ACL and then some, catching multiple touchdowns for the first time since Week 2 of last season while reaching triple-digit receiving yards for the first time since Week 10. He's likely to get an even greater share of quarterback Philip Rivers' attention moving forward with receiving back Danny Woodhead succumbing to a knee injury of his own in this one. As long as he doesn't fall victim to the injury bug going around in San Diego, the 26-year-old wide receiver has an excellent shot at his first career 1,000-yard season.

Benjamin is the chief candidate to see his number of targets grow in wake of teammate Keenan Allen's knee injury, ESPN.com's Eric Williams reports.

EDGE Analysis

Benjamin led San Diego in targets Sunday, but that came partially as a result of Allen exiting during the first half due to a suspected torn ACL. If Allen indeed misses the rest of the season, Benjamin has a great opportunity to become the Chargers' most utilized wideout, as he's easily the most proven remaining option on San Diego's depth chart. Playing for a dreadful Browns team last year, Benjamin saw a career-best 124 targets, recording 68 catches for 966 yards and five touchdowns from those looks. Although his production tailed off over the course of the season, Benjamin could now see his stock rise considerably in a pass-oriented San Diego offense in need of a new top receiving target.

Benjamin hauled in seven of eight targets for 32 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Benjamin led the Chargers in targets on Sunday and might end up being their de facto top receiver should fears that Keenan Allen tore his ACL prove true. If he wants to be effective in that role, however, he'll have to reassert himself as a deep threat. Benjamin averaged 15.3 yards per catch through Week 11 of last season, an average that would have ranked in the top 20 in the league had he maintained in. In his last six contests, however, Benjamin's average is down to 8.2 yards per catch.

Benjamin finished Sunday's preseason loss with two catches for 32 yards on five targets.

EDGE Analysis

Suiting up alongside the first-string offense, Benjamin played well, recording two intermediate level catches in a little over a quarter of work. The 26-year-old has fit right in with the Chargers after joining the team during the offseason, and should add a dynamic playmaking ability to an already explosive offensive unit.

Benjamin recorded one catch for 11 yards, as well as one carry for negative five yards in his preseason debut against on the Cardinals on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

An offseason addition by way of the Browns, Benjamin has played sparingly during training camp thanks to a nagging hamstring injury. While he didn't factor in much on offense Friday, the 26-year-old still figures to bring a dynamic element to a passing attack that also features Keenan Allen and the seemingly immortal Antonio Gates. Now firmly entrenched as the No. 2 starting WR with Stevie Johnson (knee) done for the season, Benjamin could improve upon his 2015 numbers (68 catches, 966 yards and five touchdowns) in an explosive passing attack that has seen QB Philip Rivers record three straight seasons in which he has thrown for over 4,000 yards.

Benjamin (hamstring) took part in his second straight practice Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Benjamin looks to be healthy after missing the majority of the team's practices since the start of training camp with an ailing hamstring. While it's unclear whether Benjamin will see time in the slot, or on the outside opposite Keenan Allen, the 26-year-old is expected to be a featured part of the offense with Stevie Johnson (knee) lost for the season.

Benjamin (undisclosed) won't suit up for Saturday's preseason contest at Tennessee, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Benjamin has been sidelined for most practices since the final day of OTAs due to an unknown ailment, but because the NFL doesn't required teams to release injury details, the exact nature of his issue remains up in the air. Once he's past the concern, he can begin to build a rapport with quarterback Philip Rivers.

Benjamin (undisclosed) is sitting out his fifth straight practice Thursday, Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Chargers continue to play it safe with their No. 2 wide receiver, who's sat out of the majority of training camp thus far. It's unclear what's ailing Benjamin at this point, but it doesn't appear to be anything that could put his Week 1 status in danger.

Benjamin (undisclosed) sat out a fourth straight practice Wednesday, Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Benjamin missed the final practice of the Chargers' spring camp back at the start of July and continues to be sidelined, although it's unclear exactly what the cause is of his absence. Projected to be the Chargers' No. 2 receiver behind Keenan Allen, Benjamin isn't expected to miss any regular season action, so he's likely just being held out for precautionary reasons.
