Panthers | Too much too soon for Kelvin Benjamin?

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 10:22:36 -0800

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin has scored only once since Week 4 and failed to catch more than three passes in any of his last three games. When asked about the team's top receiver Monday, Dec. 5, head coach Ron Rivera said, "Maybe we did get him out there too soon, too much (after last year's torn ACL)."

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear what exactly led to this moment of public reflection from Rivera, but Benjamin has actually been more efficient with his targets this year than he was as a rookie. Greg Olsen's production has also fallen off a cliff recently as well, suggesting the injuries on the offensive line - which may or may not be having a profound effect on Cam Newton - and the defensive struggles may be conspiring to keep the offense from realizing its full potential. Benjamin is a WR3 until further notice.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin pouts, scores TD

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 22:39:36 -0800

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin posted two receptions for 53 yards in the Week 12 game against the Oakland Raiders, including a 44-yard touchdown in the second half. He was targeted six times.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin stomped off the field, threw his helmet and berated a coach in the second half after apparently being pulled. However, he regrouped and salvaged his stat line with a long touchdown in the final quarter. He remains more of a low-end WR2 heading into Week 13 at Seattle.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin upset on sideline

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 15:47:04 -0800

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin left the Week 12 game against the Oakland Raiders late in the third quarter, apparently due to a benching rather than injury. He slammed his helmet down and was yelling at someone on the coaching staff as he was pulled from the field.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin has not recorded a catch nearing the end of the fourth quarter, and apparently he isn't happy about not being included in the game plan. The Panthers have erased a 24-7 deficit to take a 25-24 lead, so the Panthers aren't likely to change the way they're operating to please Benjamin.

Panthers | Three grabs for Kelvin Benjamin

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 21:38:57 -0800

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (shoulder) finished with three catches for 56 yards in a 23-20 win over the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Nov. 17. He briefly left to have his left shoulder evaluated, but he was able to return.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin underwhelmed against a beatable New Orleans defense, but the good news is that his injury wasn't serious. He should be safe to deploy as a WR2 against the Raiders in Week 12.

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin caught seven passes for 84 yards in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He lost a fumble after the ball was stripped by Chiefs CB Marcus Peters.
