Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin is still a strong WR2 with Derek Anderson starting at quarterback this weekend.
Insight: Benjamin had six catches for 92 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Buccaneers, the same opponent for this Sunday. Anderson started that game. Anderson has four passing touchdowns this season with three of them going to Benjamin. It's hard to believe, but for Benjamin owners, maybe Anderson starting is even better than if Cam Newton did. He had only two catches for 24 yards, but is still a WR2 moving forward.
