Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin posts 65 yards

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 14:51:48 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin hauled in three receptions for 65 yards on six targets in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin had a pretty decent day considering the Panthers offense managed just three points, but it's not the type of production that is going to please fantasy owners. He remains more of a WR3 or flex option heading into Week 8 against the Buccaneers.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin likely to play Week 7

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 10:07:20 -0700

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is expected to play in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Per Rivera, Benjamin had a "good day" Friday and ran all the routes, so the concern the Carolina coaching staff had regarding his status Thursday appears to no longer be an issue. Given the matchup and the fact he is probably not operating anywhere close to 100 percent, owners are advised to bench him in fantasy if they have other similar options available.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin returns to practice Friday

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 09:17:48 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) was back at practice Friday, Oct 20, sporting a sleeve on the left knee that kept him from practicing the previous two days.

Fantasy Tip: Considering how this thing is played out this week, Benjamin figures to be a game-time decision. With a difficult matchup in what should be a slow-paced slugfest with the Chicago Bears, it is advisable owners sit him down if they have other decent options going. As long as he can stay healthy, Benjamin will have a number of solid matchups over the second half of the season, so he'll be of plenty of use down the road.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin leaves practice early

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 11:52:45 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is reportedly dealing with a knee injury that forced him to leave practice early Wednesday, Oct. 18.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown at the moment whether or not it's the same knee he hurt in Week 3, but his early departure from practice is a small concern right now given the fact Benjamin had not appeared on the injury report over the last two weeks. If he were to miss Week 7, Devin Funchess would immediately slide into lead receiver duties and be worth starting in most leagues.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin solid on TNF

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 21:49:41 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin was targeted 13 times on Thursday, Oct. 12, catching nine for 99 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin has been doing the odd-even thing this year, averaging 6.3 catches for 93 yards in Weeks 2, 4 and 6, while managing 2.3 grabs for 30 yards in the odd-numbered weeks. Fantasy owners would definitely enjoy more consistency, but Benjamin deserves to be deployed as a WR3 on a weekly basis.
