Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin questionable

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 09:46:20 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin costs $6,700 (13.4% of cap), so he's a big risk this weekend against the Packers. If he doesn't play, Jerricho Cotchery ($3,200) may deserve a flier as a sleeper play. Greg Olsen would likely see a heavy amount of targets, as well.

Panthers | Jerricho Cotchery a sneaky start?

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 14:48:23 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Jerricho Cotchery could be a sneaky start this week if WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) is unable to play. Even with Benjamin in the lineup last week, Cotchery saw 10 targets in a tie with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers will likely need to air the ball out frequently on the road against the pass-happy Green Bay Packers. Cotchery would be a nice option for a value play ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) on FantasyScore if Benjamin is out.
