Panthers | Devin Funchess the new No. 1?

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 18:53:31 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess is the leading candidate to replace WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) as the X receiver, and head coach Ron Rivera said Funchess' high football IG will ease the transition.

Fantasy Tip: Funchess should see an uptick in targets with Benjamin sidelined, especially in the red zone where he can use his size advantage. Any rookie is going to be inconsistent, but Funchess shoud be a serviceable WR3.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin was big deep threat

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 14:50:25 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) led the Panthers with eight catches on throws over 20 yards downfield last year. The rest of the team had six such catches combined. Benjamin is out for the year with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: There's no question the Panthers have lost their best wide receiver. Benjamin opened up the field for Carolina and was a big red-zone threat. Again, Devin Funchess' value increases the most with the loss of Benjamin. Jerrico Cotcher, Ted Ginn Jr. and Philly Brown shouldn't be overlooked, however.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin has torn ACL

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 14:39:38 -0700

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) tore his anterior cruciate ligament Wednesday, Aug. 19. He is expected to miss the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: This is a huge blow for the Panthers, and a decent blow for Cam Newton's fantasy value, too. Devin Funchess is probably the biggest benefactor with Benjamin out. Jerricho Cotchery, Philly Brown and Ted Ginn Jr. all have increased value as well. Funchess should now be viewed as a low-end WR3 to high-end WR4. Cotchery, Brown and Ginn have lower value, but are still worth drafting or adding to your fantasy roster(s).

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin has sprained knee

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 08:21:27 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was unofficially diagnosed with a sprained left knee. He'll have an MRI.

Fantasy Tip: A knee sprain could have him back within a matter of weeks. However, an MRI will give him a clearer outlook. As it stands, if he misses the first couple of weeks, he falls to a low-end WR2.

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (leg) was carted off at practice Wednesday, Aug. 19, with a left leg injury. Benjamin cut towards the sideline while running a route and went down. He wasn't able to put weight on the leg.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin was a solid WR2 in fantasy, but he has been dogged by conditioning issues and a slew of injuries. Keep an eye on his status as it's too early to speculate.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin healthy

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:52:41 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (hamstring) said his hamstrings are fine and that he is 100% healthy entering training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin missed some time this offseason because of a hamstring injury, but it appears he is ready for the start of camp. He is coming off a solid 2014 season and should be the No. 1 target in the passing game. He likely will be selected in the early to middle rounds of drafts this season.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin at playing weight

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 11:30:44 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin said he is currently at his playing weight a week before training camp begins. Benjamin said he has changed his conditioning and diet in order to stay in shape.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin was nine pounds overweight earlier this offseason, so it's encouraging that he's done what he needed to do to get back into playing shape. He should be the Panthers' best option at wide receiver again this year. Take him as a WR2 in your fantasy drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin gave some red flags with his lack of conditioning that led to hamstring issues this offseason. If he doesn't have any further setbacks, he's a good WR2 to target this season.
