Panthers | Corey Brown leaves early

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 13:55:23 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown (shoulder) left practice early Tuesday, Aug. 23, with a shoulder injury. His removal from practice simply appeared to be a precaution.

Fantasy Tip: There may not be a lot of opportunities for Brown this year with Kelvin Benjamin, Devin Funchess and Ted Ginn Jr. all likely ahead of him. He's not necessarily undraftable, but he's really only worth consideration in deeper standard leagues.

Panthers | Greg Olsen returns Monday

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 12:51:11 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (back) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 22. The extent of Olsen's participation was not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Aside from Cam Newton, Olsen is arguably the most valuable offensive player the Panthers have, so this is great news for Carolina and Olsen owners. As long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks leading up to the regular season, he's a top-five tight end on any draft board.

Panthers | Devin Funchess pushing Kelvin Benjamin

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 12:14:00 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess has really impressed wide receivers coach Ricky Proehl this offseason. Proehl said Funchess is playing at a level that is forcing WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) to keep up and get better. "To be honest with you, where Devin is right now and where Kelvin needs to get to, I think Devin is pushing Kelvin," Proehl said. "He's realizing, 'I've got to get back, I've got to push, because [Funchess] is pretty dang good.' Proehl did admit that Benjamin is still fully recovering from his torn anterior cruciate ligament, however.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin and Funchess seem destined for a dynamic 1-2 punch in 2016, as long as they can stay on the field. The Panthers have no shortage of big targets near the end zone, including Benjamin and Funchess. Benjamin looked good in his first preseason action last week. He's a WR2 option, while Funchess is still more of a low-end WR3 to high-end WR4 consideration.

Panthers | Greg Olsen, Ed Dickson sitting

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 12:01:13 -0700

Carolina Panthers TEs Greg Olsen (back) and Ed Dickson (undisclosed) are inactive against the Tennessee Titans Saturday, Aug. 20. Olsen is recovering from back spasms.

Fantasy Tip: Dickson has little to no fantasy value as long as Olsen is healthy, which Olsen should be by Week 1. He was Cam Newton's favorite target last year, and he should still be one of the first tight ends drafted even with the return of Kelvin Benjamin.

Panthers | Greg Olsen still hurting

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 15:29:24 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen's (back) MRI on his ailing back came back negative, according to head coach Ron Rivera, but Olsen is still dealing with a big spasm.

Fantasy Tip: The timetable for Olsen's return wasn't made clear, but it shouldn't be too long since it's not too serious of an issue. He's one of the most reliable tight ends in the NFL and should be one of the first three tight ends taken in fantasy drafts.

Panthers | No brace for Kelvin Benjamin

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 13:11:30 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) doesn't plan on wearing a brace to protect the torn anterior cruciate ligament he's healing from. Benjamin said a brace feels uncomfortable. Head coach Ron Rivera agrees with the decision.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin isn't quite at full health, but he should be there at least close when the regular season commences. He's the Panthers' top wideout even after missing last season, but caution should still be used. It's best to draft Benjamin as a low-end No. 2 wide receiver.
