Carolina Panthers news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 26 Sep 2016 15:18:34 -0700
Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin could be more involved going forward after not catching a pass in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings. He was only targeted once. "We've got to find a way to get him the ball more. That starts with me," offensive coordinator Mike Shula said. "But we've got to make sure we're doing it in a way that we're not just trying to force him the ball.
Fantasy Tip: Benjamin had been on fire before the dud on Sunday. It was more than likely an anomaly for Benjamin against one of the better defenses in the league. He'll face a more mediocre pass defense in the New York Giants on Monday night next week. Yesterday's performance may cause some angst, but Benjamin is still a WR2 candidate.

Fantasy Tip: Newton was 21-for-35 for 262 yards, no touchdowns and three INTs in a brilliant effort by the Minnesota Vikings defense. Newton has a favorable matchup against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4, and he remains an elite option at the position.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen was targeted 10 times during the game and has caught at least five passes in each of his first three games. He should continue to be a strong fantasy option for owners because he will be a focal point in the Panthers' passing game.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton went 21-for-35 for 262 yards and three interceptions against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3. He also rushed for 26 yards and one touchdown on seven carries during the game.
Fantasy Tip: Newton struggled against one of the better defenses in the NFL and should post better next week against the Atlanta Falcons. Newton is a must-start quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Cameron Artis-Payne is expected to serve as the lead back, but Fozzy Whittaker and Mike Tolbert will be heavily involved as well. Even with the rash of injuries at the running back position across the league last week, none of the aforementioned players should be considered anything more than a RB3 this week.

Fantasy Tip: Short is on track to play this week and should be an attractive option for owners in IDP leagues.

Carolina Panthers RB Cameron Artis-Payne is expected to serve as the feature back in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings. "All he's ever needed was the opportunity," head coach Ron Rivera said Wednesday, Sept. 21. "We didn't have (RB Jonathan Stewart) at the end of the season, so he got his opportunity and performed well and did some really good things. And then this preseason, I thought he had a really good preseason."
Fantasy Tip: CAP was inactive for the first two games, but mainly due to his inability to play special teams. He faces a difficult matchup in his first game, as the Vikings have a strong rush defense. Still, he is worth scooping up as a RB3 and as a low-priced flyer in DFS, as it sounds like he will see more carries than Fozzy Whittaker.

Fantasy Tip: Owners in IDP leagues should keep an eye on the situation because Short is one of the better defensive tackles. He is a must-start option if he is active for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart is expected to miss at least one week because of the injury, so owners should avoid him in all leagues. Fozzy Whittaker and Cameron Artis-Payne likely will share snaps in Week 3 and can be flex options in most fantasy leagues.
