Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin had a tough Week 2 catching just two of eight targets for 46 yards.
Insight: Benjamin, a 6-foot-5, 240-pound behemoth, had a solid season opener (6-92-1) so we're hoping this was just one of those clunkers you get from rookies now and then.

Description: David Newton, the Panthers beat writer for ESPN.com, says wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin was the star of Carolina's training camp.
Insight: Benjamin, a 6-foot-5, 240-pound behemoth, had a 29-yard touchdown in the preseason opener and he's made a few eye-opening catches during camp. The first-round pick will fill the team's No. 1 receiver spot immediately and he has a lot of upside at his ninth-round ADP.

Description: Carolina wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin caught a 29-yard touchdown from Derek Anderson in the preseason opener Friday against the Bills.
Insight: Benjamin beat Bills starting CB Stephon Gilmore down the left sideline and recovered from a stumble to make a diving catch in the end zone. The 6-foot-5, 240-pounder is going to be Carolina's No. 1 receiver right from the start of the season and could return nice value on his 10th-round ADP.

Description: Carolina wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin is expected to return to the practice field Saturday.
Insight: No one thought the sore knee was too serious, but as thin as the Panthers are at wideout it's important they all stay healthy. At 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds, Benjamin should be a red zone favorite of Cam Newton's next season.
