8/7: And down goes Benn, the second Eagles receiver out for the season with a torn ACL. Injuries have derailed his once hopeful career and at this point it is unlikely Benn ever returns to fantasy rosters. As for the Eagles, this loss is more about depth, but shouldn't impact the starting lineup.
The Eagles' fourth receiver job looks like a battle between Benn -- a former high pick that flamed out during his three seasons with the Bucs -- and Riley Cooper -- a 6-foot-4 red zone threat who caught three touchdowns last season. Injuries have sapped Benn's production, forcing him to miss half the games last season when he caught only four passes. Considered an imposing target when entering the NFL out of Illinois, Benn has good size at 6-foot-2 and is a decent route runner. Based on potential, he probably has the edge in the WR4 race; from a fantasy perspective, it's a shrugs scenario either way.
