Fantasy Impact: If Benjamin is active, he will face a Chiefs defense allowing the second-most fantasy points to wide receivers this season. While it’s a great matchup, Benjamin has virtually no chemistry with Tyrod Taylor right now between Taylor being benched and Benjamin being injured

Buffalo acquired Benjamin last October, sending third- and seventh-round draft picks to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for Benjamin.

Benjamin, a first-round draft pick in 2014, had a big rookie season with the Panthers, when had 73 receptions for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns.

But he hasn't been the same since tearing his ACL before the start of the 2015.

He had just 23 receptions for 354 yards and one touchdown in 12 games (10 starts) with Buffalo this season, and had just seven receptions for 92 yards in his final four games.

The Chiefs already have a high-powered offense, ranking third in the NFL in total offense and first in scoring at 37.0 points per game.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes has a league-leading 41 touchdown passes, and he has three quality targets in wide receivers Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins and tight end Travis Kelce.

Chiefs at Seahawks looms large for home-field advantage in the AFC.
The Chiefs and Chargers are both 11-3, tied for the best record in the AFC. The good news for the Chiefs is, they’ll win any tiebreaker between the two teams, so as long as they win out, they don’t have to worry about what the Chargers do. The good news for the Chargers is, winning out won’t be easy for the Chiefs. That’s because the next game on the Chiefs’ schedule is next Sunday night at Seattle, and the Seahawks are playing very good football right now.
