Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins re-injured his foot in practice yesterday and following an MRI, will now miss the next 4-6 weeks. This news is the latest big hit to a Chiefs' offense that will already be without running back Kareem Hunt, following his recent release.


The team subsequently signed Kelvin Benjamin -- a move that left many people shaking their heads in disbelief. However, with the Chiefs' offensive weapons falling off piece-by-piece, they clearly had to get creative with the signing of Benjamin. 

With quarterback Patrick Mahomes on pace to break multiple NFL and fantasy football records, it feels like an orange parking cone could be productive in this offense. Benjamin has only found the end zone four times over the last four seasons, but there will be plenty of opportunities to increase that number in KC. The former first-round pick was highly successful as a member of the Carolina Panthers in his first two NFL seasons, totaling 136 catches for 1,949 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns in 32 games during 2014 and 2016 -- he missed the 2015 season with a knee injury.


Benjamin's floundering fantasy production over the last two seasons could be linked to his trade to the Buffalo Bills. After all, they have had one of the NFL's worst passing attacks for quite some time now.

With Benjamin not expected to play in Week 14 against the Ravens, Chris Conley is set to have a big impact for this Chiefs' offense, seeing 15 targets over the last two games. His three touchdowns over that same span have been a nice addition off the waiver wire for fantasy owners.
