Panthers | Extra snaps for Devin Funchess

Sun, 31 May 2015 16:29:47 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess has been seeing extra snaps while WR Kelvin Benjamin (hamstring) is sidelined, and head coach Ron Rivera said the extra work for Funchess has been an unintended plus.

Fantasy Tip: Funchess has a great chance to open the year as Carolina's No. 2 receiver, and he has the size to create some matchup problems, especially in the red zone. For now, draft him as a low-end WR4 with some upside.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin still out

Thu, 28 May 2015 12:27:01 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (hamstring) sat out organized team activities Thursday, May 28, as he continues to nurse a sore hamstring.

Fantasy Tip: It was expected that Benjamin was going to sit out OTAs this week, so this isn't a big surprise. The key is for him to rest it long enough so that it doesn't get aggravated when he returns. As long as he's healthy heading into the season, he should be drafted as a WR2.
