Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin shows growing pains

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 13:40:15 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin looked good in his first NFL game in Week 1, but he showed growing pains on route running, downfield blocking and with dropped passes in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions. The team graded Benjamin a 70 out of 100 in Week 1 for poor routes and a lack of blocking. He was graded at 93 last week despite catching only two passes for 43 yards. Benjamin also had three drops against the Lions after having a high drop rate of 9 percent at Florida State in 2013.

Fantasy Tip: As with any rookie, Benjamin will have his ups and downs this year. Be careful not to rely on him too much, especially when the team doesn't have much depth at his position. Play the matchups with Benjamin in daily fantasy football, but be prepared for some disappointment along the way.

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 15:50:41 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin in sync with QB

Sat, 06 Sep 2014 21:39:06 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin has built a strong relationship with QB Cam Newton both on and off the field, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Rivera said that when Benjamin lines up and sees a cornerback in a certain position or a safety too tight, Benjamin can look at Newton and they know immediately what to do.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin is likely going to need some time to develop into a consistent fantasy force, but the rookie has the size and athleticism to be a threat immediately, especially in the red zone. He will take up just 9% of you cap ($4,500) in FantasyScore, and considering his touchdown potential, he is worth taking a chance on as a bargain option to free up salary for some bigger names at other positions.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin being prepped as No. 1 WR

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 14:47:59 -0700

Carolina Panthers rookie WR Kelvin Benjamin is being prepped as the team's No. 1 wide receiver in practices. "We've done some things defensively to put him in situations where he's being jammed, where he's being pressed, he's being doubled, he's being rolled to," head coach Ron Rivera said. "He's going to have to get used to it." Some were worried whether Benjamin would struggle with his route running at the NFL level, but wide receivers coach Ricky Proehl said Benjamin is more than capable. Benjamin has developed good chemistry with QB Cam Newton off the field, and the team hopes it'll carry over to game situations.

Fantasy Tip: There are pretty high expectations for Benjamin in his rookie year as he effectively replaces Steve Smith as the team's go-to receiver. Benjamin will receive plenty of looks, but he'll also receive plenty of attention from opposing defenses. He's been impressive so far, but he'll surely go through growing pains in his first season and be inconsistent for fantasy owners. Don't draft him as anything more than a WR4.
