Panthers | Excited about Kelvin Benjamin

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 13:39:33 -0700

The Carolina Panthers are excited about what they have seen out of WR Kelvin Benjamin during organized team activities this summer. "That's part of why you bring the young man in," head coach Ron Rivera said. "You draft him for a specific skill set. He can become a threat in the red zone and a threat for you on third down and have an immediate impact doing those things for us. It was good to see him do those things and good to see him work with Cam (Newton) as well. I'm excited as to where he's heading and what he can become for us."

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin is extremely raw, but the Panthers don't have many other imposing wideout options, so he should see starter repetitions immediately. His biggest asset is his size, and he should give Cam Newton a nice red zone option. There'll be a learning curve here, though, so use Benjamin as WR depth with upside.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin big red zone target

Mon, 19 May 2014 12:24:43 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin is expected to be a big target for QB Cam Newton in the red zone this season. The Panthers' first-round pick is listed at 6-foot-5, 240 pounds.

Fantasy Tip: Itís too early to get too excited about Benjaminís potential. He may be the teamís No. 1 red zone threat, but heís still a rookie and has a lot to learn. Itís safer to be more cautious with Benjamin, who may be more inconsistent than fantasy owners would want.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin selected 28th overall

Thu, 08 May 2014 20:17:22 -0700

The Carolina Panthers selected Florida State WR Kelvin Benjamin with the 28th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: The talented, big catcher is a fine fit -- they need a red zone target. This isn't a big aerial offense, but Benjamin, by default with the lack of options around him, should see plenty of targets from Cam Newton. He's a WR4 at his 2014 peak, a decent gamble in the fantasy reserve rounds.
