Carolina Panthers news, rumors and injuries
Wed, 17 Sep 2014 15:50:41 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Even with the injury concern, Benjamin still may not be worth the $5,100 (10.20% of cap) in FantasyScore because of a bad match up against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Look elsewhere this week.

Fantasy Tip: Williams was expected to practice, so he may not be as far along as originally thought. Even at $4,700 (9.40% of cap) in FantasyScore, there are probably better options available to you at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on this as the week goes on, but it is likely nothing to be concerned about. At $6,800 though (13.60% of cap) in FantasyScore, it may be tough for Olsen to live up to expectations this week.

Carolina Panthers DE Greg Hardy is not practicing Wednesday, Sept. 17, as the team and league consider placing him on the Exempt/Commissioner's Permission list, according to a source involved in the process. If Hardy were placed on this list, it'd require him to stay away from all team activities, but he'd continue to be paid. A resolution has been reached in regards to his status, but no official announcement has been made, according to a source.

Carolina Panthers DE Greg Hardy could have his domestic violence case intervened by the NFL. Hardy was found guilty of assaulting his girlfriend in July by a North Carolina judge, and he will be tried again before a jury in mid-November. Head coach Ron Rivera said the team will decide later this week if Hardy will play in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) was dealing with a bit of soreness in his foot after the Week 2 game, according to head coach Ron Rivera. However, Rivera thinks it's a good sign after Newton had offseason ankle surgery back in March. "Because it's more sore than his back," Rivera said. "Which is good. At least, I think it's good. He's moving around pretty good and he's feeling pretty good about himself."
Fantasy Tip: Newton's ankle is a minor concern, and his ribs didn't appear to be a problem at all in his first game of the 2014 season. Continue to start him as you would otherwise.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (thigh) is expected to return to practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, and be ready to play in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Williams sat out in Week 2 with a thigh injury that flared up earlier in the week. Williams led the team with 14 carries and 72 yards rushing in Week 1.
Fantasy Tip: The return of Williams will push Jonathan Stewart's involvement down. Neither back is all that attractive at FantasyScore, but if Williams is close to full health, he'll likely see the majority of the touches again.

Fantasy Tip: It is unclear exactly what Benjamin's injury is, if there even is an injury, but it doesn't appear to be serious.
Mon, 15 Sep 2014 11:00:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Williams missed the team's Week 2 game because of the injury, and his status for Week 3 is uncertain. Jonathan Stewart likely would get most of the work again in Week 3 if Williams misses another game. Stewart could be a flex option on FantasyScore and in most other leagues.
