TRAVIS BENJAMIN IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $4.9K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $3.3K

He is projected for 4.7 FanDuel points and 5.7 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$2010 short of $4.9K on FanDuel and -$952 short of $3.3K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below).
