Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers WR Jerricho Cotchery (hamstring) ran in the treadmill in the pool Friday, Sept. 19, and will be re-evaluated Saturday, Sept. 20, head coach Ron Rivera said. Cotchery is expected to be a game-time decision.

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hamstring) is expected to be ready to play in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. His injury had been called a thigh injury, but he said Friday, Sept. 19, that he has been battling a hamstring issue. He took reps with the first-team offense Friday, and appears ready to go barring a setback.
Fantasy Tip: Despite his improved outlook, he is still officially questionable and therefore a question mark in FantasyScore leagues. Let him prove his health in one full game before risking a roster spot on him.

Carolina Panthers DE Greg Hardy is on the exempt list, but the team has yet to fill his spot on the 53-man roster. Head coach Ron Rivera said RB Darrin Reaves or either WRs Stephen Hill or Marcus Lucas could be brought up from the practice squad.

Fantasy Tip: You shouldn't risk Williams' $4,700 price tag at FantasyScore this weekend, especially since the Panthers have the late game Sunday evening. If you want to roll with the Carolina backfield, Jonathan Stewart ($5,100) is the better play.

Carolina Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker (thigh) is listed as doubtful for Week 3. WR Jason Avant (thigh) and WR Jerricho Cotchery (thigh) are listed as questionable, while OT Byron Bell (toe), WR Philly Brown (ankle), OT Nate Chandler (toe), DT Colin Cole (non-injury), LB Thomas Davis (hip), DT Dwan Edwards (back), FB Mike Tolbert (chest) and OT Garry Williams (hip) are listed as probable. Cole, Cotchery and Whittaker did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 19. Avant was limited during practice, while the other players fully participated in practice.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen has played well so far this season and would be a solid starting option in all fantasy leagues this week.
Fri, 19 Sep 2014 11:31:59 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Benjamin should be able to play in Week 3 unless he suffers a setback before the game. Owners would have to spend $5,100 on Benjamin at FantasyScore this week, and Benjamin could be a No. 3 wide receiver or flex option for some owners.

Fantasy Tip: Williams may be able to play in the game but could also be limited or share carries because of the injury. Williams costs $4,700 on FantasyScore this week, but owners probably should consider other options since Williams is a big injury risk.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs, ankle) is unlikely to be 100 percent the rest of the season. He experiences pain the night after the games and receives treatment the next two days in hopes of practicing every Wednesday. Head coach Ron Rivera said Newton's ankle bothered him more than the ribs. However, Newton said neither injury was worse than the other.
Fantasy Tip: Newton's rushing yardage could be limited this season due to his ailments. However, he remains a low-end QB1 option each week.

Fantasy Tip: Williams was expected to return in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, two straight days of no practice doesn't look good for his chances of returning. Jonathan Stewart ($5,100) isn't a bad buy at FantasyScore if Williams is out again.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen had six catches (eight targets) for 72 yards in Week 2 after scoring in Week 1. He's a nice option at FantasyScore for $6,800. The Pittsburgh Steelers were torched by the tight end position last week.
