Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 17: Kelvin Benjamin
Kelvin Benjamin was a letdown last week. Should fantasy owners expect him to get it going again?
Carolina Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin had one of his worst games of the season in Week 16. He was expected to torch the Cleveland Browns with cornerback Joe Haden not playing. Well, it didn’t happen due some drops and he only finished with five catches for 47 yards.
This week, he’ll get another fantastic matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, who are the third-easiest matchup for fantasy receivers in the season. Benjamin lit them up back in Week 11 for nine catches, 109 yards and one score in his best game for PPR leagues.
The Falcons are not coming in hot or anything, allowing at least 199 yards to receivers in every week since Week 7. They are 32nd in the league in passing yards allowed and are not better at home.
Fantasy impact: Yes, Benjamin was a letdown last week. However, there is no way his fantasy owners can bench him. He’s a top-10 play.
