Carolina Panthers news, rumors and injuries
Thu, 18 Sep 2014 13:50:47 -0700
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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: After a nice Week 1 performance, Benjamin struggled with drops and looked more like a rookie in Week 2. There may be better options than Benjamin against the Pittsburgh Steelers this week at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Even with the injury concern, Benjamin still may not be worth the $5,100 (10.20% of cap) in FantasyScore because of a bad match up against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Look elsewhere this week.

Fantasy Tip: Williams was expected to practice, so he may not be as far along as originally thought. Even at $4,700 (9.40% of cap) in FantasyScore, there are probably better options available to you at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on this as the week goes on, but it is likely nothing to be concerned about. At $6,800 though (13.60% of cap) in FantasyScore, it may be tough for Olsen to live up to expectations this week.

Carolina Panthers DE Greg Hardy is not practicing Wednesday, Sept. 17, as the team and league consider placing him on the Exempt/Commissioner's Permission list, according to a source involved in the process. If Hardy were placed on this list, it'd require him to stay away from all team activities, but he'd continue to be paid. A resolution has been reached in regards to his status, but no official announcement has been made, according to a source.
