Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin receives good news

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 10:17:22 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) learned he did sustain any structural damage from the injury that forced him from Week 3 after receiving the results of an MRI on his left knee Monday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: No timetable for his return to the field has been reported yet, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he had to miss at least a game after getting bent back awkwardly early in the Week 3 loss to the New Orleans Saints. With Greg Olsen also done for a while, Devin Funchess, Curtis Samuel and Russell Shepard - along with tight end Ed Dickson - are Cam Newton's top options right now. It's a situation to avoid in fantasy.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin appears to be fine

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 15:32:11 -0700

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) did not suffered a major injury, based on early indications, a source said Sunday, Sept. 24.

Fantasy Tip: After a scare, it appears Benjamin is expected to be fine. That is good news for a struggling Carolina offense which lost Greg Olsen (foot) to a long-term injury last week. Treat Benjamin more as a WR3 or flex option heading into Week 4 at New England, if healthy.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin nearly invisible

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 13:38:59 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin posted just two catches for eight yards on his only two targets in Week 3 against New Orleans.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin was erased by a previously suspect New Orleans pass defense before leaving early due to a knee injury. Instead of picking up his game with Greg Olsen (foot) sidelined, Benjamin took a step back and then he was hurt. If healthy, he should only be considered a WR3 heading into Week 4 at New England, and even that might be generous considering his results to date.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin will not return

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 11:51:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) will not return to the team's Week 3 game.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should find out more about Benjamin's condition after the game or in the next day or two. Devin Funchess would receive a bigger role in the passing game if Benjamin misses time but is not a great fantasy option.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin injures knee

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 11:03:08 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) suffered a knee injury in Week 3 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to determine the severity of Benjamin's injury. He has dealt with injuries over the last few years but is still a starting fantasy receiver when healthy.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin full go

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 12:12:47 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: A rule of thumb in the fantasy community over the last few years has been to start your wide receivers, and really any players, if they are playing the New Orleans Saints. With Greg Olsen gone, Benjamin has a good chance for a field day this weekend.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin returns to practice

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 09:49:25 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) returned to practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin has a good matchup against the New Orleans Saints this week, and the team is without TE Greg Olsen (foot) for an extended period. Benjamin should see more looks and is a good WR2 this week.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin held out of practice

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 12:20:44 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was not a participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin is nursing a knee injury and faces an iffy future in Week 3. If Benjamin is unable to take the field or is limited at all then Devin Funchess and Ed Dickson become more attractive starting options against a weak New Orleans Saints defense.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin leads way in Week 2

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 15:50:16 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin hauled in six receptions for 77 yards in Week 2 against the Bills on his eight targets.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin should see even more heavy lifting in upcoming weeks, especially in the red zone, with Greg Olsen (foot) sidelined for what is believed to be a multi-week injury. Benjamin is a decent WR3 or flex play heading into Week 3 against the defensively challenged Saints.
