Carolina Panthers news, rumors and injuries
Sat, 28 May 2016 13:31:49 -0700
Carolina Panthers WR Stephen Hill (knee) only participated in some individual drills last week when the Panthers began organized team activities. Hill is still recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament he suffered last season. He doesn't want to rush his recovery, but Hill said he also wants to take his time. "I'm just trying to do all I can with what they've given me to do, and then I'll just go from there.
Fantasy Tip: Hill has a lot of work to do to carve out a role with the Panthers in 2016, that's assuming he gets to and stays at full health. It's safer not to draft Hill considering the serious injury and how inconsistent he's been throughout his career.

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is back at practice in organized team activities Thursday, May 26, for the first time since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee in training camp last year. Carolina is likely to ease him back into work, though, after he totaled 1,008 receiving yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie.
Fantasy Tip: Benjamin's stellar rookie season might make him a bit overvalued going into 2016 drafts. It might take him a while to get back into the flow after a full year off, but his physical abilities leap off the page. Cam Newton has his go-to target back. Consider Benjamin a solid No. 2 wide receiver investment.

Fantasy Tip: Bersin doesn't have a clear path to legit playing time with Kelvin Benjamin returning. He's someone to keep an eye on in camp if he can steal reps from Devin Funchess. We're not ready to use a WR5 flyer on him yet.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen won't have to worry about any competition for at least next season, and he is locked in as a top-five fantasy tight end.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton still has an awful lot of room to grow, in the words of head coach Ron Rivera. "As he continues to learn and understand more and more about offensive and defensive plays, his decision-making is going to be even better," Rivera said. "As long as he continues to stay healthy and keep getting better physically and work on his base fundamentals, I think the young man is going to get better."
Fantasy Tip: It's hard to envision Newton playing better after the season he had last year, but there were some games where he was erratic. He's one of the biggest dual threats in the game today and should be a consideration for the top fantasy quarterback spot.
