Kelvin Benjamin is a Good Part-Time Starter Value for the Rest of the Season

REST OF SEASON FANTASY VALUE

Our projections and the market data (ownership, ADP, actual FP) both have a similar expectation for him (Projected Rank #75, Market Rank #79). Owned in 11% of CBS Fantasy leagues he is projected to average 4.5 fantasy points per week. With a better than expected projection rank there are other wide receivers you should avoid considering that are projected for fewer points. Chris Hogan (22 FP), Randall Cobb (21 FP), and Keelan Cole (16 FP) are all worse options. Both his market rank and projected rank are the same in PPR leagues as they are in standard leagues. Kelvin Benjamin has a lower rank based on projected average than projected total. His projected average rank is #78.
