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.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin limited to one grab

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 19:52:44 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin was held to just one catch for 25 yards in Week 1 at San Francisco on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: Cam Newton tried to feed it into Benjamin, but they just were unable to connect down the field. As such, he was a huge disappointment as a WR2 in most fantasy leagues, especially after a big performance was expected following his torching of the 49ers in 2016. He'll try to get it right in Week 2 against Buffalo, but should be treated more as a WR3 or flex play.

Panthers | Fast start coming for Kelvin Benjamin?

Sat, 09 Sep 2017 20:20:54 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin faces the San Francisco 49ers in Week 1, and Benjamin finished with seven catches for 108 yards and two touchdowns against the 49ers in Week 2 last year.

Fantasy Tip: The cornerback position isn't exactly one of San Francisco's strengths, so Benjamin should have an opportunity for another big performance. Start him as a WR2.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin primed to excel in 2017

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 18:13:11 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin has positioned himself to have the best year of his career, according to quarterback Cam Newton. "I'm not just saying (he's going to have his best year) to blow smoke. Everything that he's done for everything, he's positioned himself to make that come into fruition," Newton said.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin has certainly had his fair share of struggles recently - his much-publicized weight gain leading into minicamp and the death of his mother in July - but he looked as good as ever in the preseason and vows to dedicate "every snap, every play" to his mother. Facing perhaps the softest schedule of any receiver in the league, Benjamin has the feel of a high-end WR1 in 2017.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin catches four passes

Thu, 24 Aug 2017 20:22:44 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin caught four passes for 36 yards and one touchdown in the preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin appears to be in shape this season and should continue to be the team's top receiver. He has recorded at least 941 yards in his two full seasons in the NFL and has 16 touchdowns in 32 games. Owners should consider Benjamin as a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin checks in at 243 pounds

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 09:29:49 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin reported to training camp at 243 pounds - according to head coach Ron Rivera - after reportedly weighing "about 270" in April, per Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer.

Fantasy Tip: His current weight puts him at about the same weight he was as a rookie and obviously leaves him in a much better position to rebound from last season's disappointing campaign. It remains to be seen how much of a change Carolina's new offensive philosophy will affect his fantasy impact, but his status as the team's top wide receiver is not in question. For now, consider him a low-end WR2 with upside.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin at a good weight

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 13:53:21 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin is where he needs to be regarding his weight, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin is one of the bigger receivers in the league and has more of a tight end's physique. That size helps him gain big yards and touchdowns, though. In the two seasons he's played, Benjamin averaged 974.5 yards and eight touchdowns. Give him a look as a WR2.
