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 | Might not be settled at WR

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 20:36:40 -0700

The Carolina Panthers will keep six wide receivers with WRs Jason Avant, Kelvin Benjamin, Brenton Bersin, Philly Brown, Jerricho Cotchery and Tavarres King as the projected members of the 53-man roster. The team could still look to pick up a receiver or kick returner off waivers after the final roster cuts Saturday, Aug. 30.

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.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin feeling good

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 13:55:07 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) said his knee felt better Tuesday, July 29, and he could be back sooner than expected. Benjamin suffered a bruised left knee in practice Sunday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: As long as he's healthy, Benjamin could be the Panthers' No. 1 wide receiver and perhaps their main red-zone threat. Still, he's no more than a WR4 in redraft leagues.
