Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin caught three passes for 61 yards and a touchdown on Sunday against the Packers.

10/19/2014 12:09:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin has been cleared to play in Week 7 against the Packers and is active. UPDATE: Benjamin is active on Sunday.
Insight: The Panthers receiver is pretty much a must-start against the Packers. He scored his fourth touchdown last week on the road against the tough Bengals defense, and Green Bay will be without top cornerback Sam Shields and could also be missing No. 2 corner Tramon Williams, who is a game-time decision.

10/17/2014 2:12:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin returned to the practice field on Thursday (concussion symptoms) though he still must be cleared before he can play Sunday.
Insight: He should be considered questionable for Week 7, but this is at least headed in the right direction.

Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin did not practice on Wednesday due to dealing with concussion symptoms.
Insight: Our best guess is the injury stems from a big hit Benjamin took from Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict in the tie last Sunday. He should be considered questionable for Week 7.

10/13/2014 5:31:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin scored another touchdown on Sunday.
Insight: He now has four touchdowns on the year, and is clearly Cam Newton's number-one target. Owners who gambled with drafting Benjamin, have it paying off in a big way.
 
Hot9/28/2014 5:18:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin led the team with nine targets and caught five balls for 76 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Benjamin had another touchdown, but it was called back due to offensive pass interference. Quarterback Cam Newton even targeted Benjamin more than his security blanket, Greg Olsen. Benjamin should be owed in all leagues.
 
Hot9/22/2014 11:36:00 AM
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin showed off his considerable skills Sunday night against the Steelers defense.
Insight: Benjamin, a 6-foot-5, 240-pound stud receiver, made a tremendous catch in the front corner of the end zone after the game had already been decided, but it gave fantasy owners the numbers they needed - 8-115-1.
 
9/16/2014 3:56:00 PM
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.
 
8/12/2014 5:25:00 PM
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.
 
8/8/2014 10:40:00 PM
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.
 
8/1/2014 4:10:00 PM
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.
 
7/28/2014 11:36:00 AM

Insight: No one thinks it's 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.
 
5/9/2014 10:34:00 AM
