Panthers hoping rookie WR will step up
With Kelvin Benjamin gone for the year
By: John Canario | Fri Aug 21, 4:30 pm

Carolina Panthers
It wasn't the plan for Devin Funchess to become the Carolina Panthers' de facto No. 1 wide receiver out of the gate his rookie year. Alas, injures can ruin even the best-laid plans. With Kelvin Benjamin tearing his ACL, the expectations for Funchess will increase. While the rookie sat out practice nursing a hamstring injury, the Panthers talked up the high IQ of their second-round pick, who has learned the Z receiver spot, the slot and will now move to the X role (where Benjamin was anchored). "Absolutely, that should help a lot. He is really a solid young man," coach Ron Rivera said of the receiver's IQ, via the Charlotte Observer. "He knows two positions, and obviously he'll concentrate on Kelvin's and work to handle that spot for us." The Panthers had hoped to deploy a towering duo with the 6-foot-5 Benjamin and 6-foot-4 Funchess. Now at least they have one tall wideout target for Cam Newton to go along with tight end Greg Olsen. (NFL)

FFToday's Take: Cam Newton and the Panthers' offense know a thing or two about bringing a rookie WR along rapidly. While Funchess doesn't have the same ability as Benjamin, he may be leaned on quite heavily this year, and he's worth a late round flier.


Injury WR Benjamin will miss entire 2015 season
Torn ACL in left knee

SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin will miss the season after suffering a torn ACL in his left knee on Wednesday. (ESPN.com)

FFToday's Take: In the wake of Kelvin Benjamin's injury, the Panthers will need Greg Olsen and Jonathan Stewart more than ever. Wide receivers Devin Funchess and Philly Brown will see their roles expand but fantasy owners shouldn't go overboard here. Cam Newton and company already figured to finish with one of the league's worst passing offenses when Benjamin was healthy. Opposing defenses will also be better able to key in on the ground attack without a big-time threat on the outside. Carolina may also look to add another veteran free agent receiver.

FFToday's Take: It was a non-contact injury and didn't look good. Benjamin was carted off to have further testing. The Panthers will update Benjamin's status after practice. Hopefully it's only a sprain.


Injury Kelvin Benjamin out with yet another hamstring injury
Panthers receiver a little on the hefty side
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jun 17, 8:00 pm

Carolina Panthers
A week after returning from one hamstring injury, second-year Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin has another hamstring injury that caused him to miss Wednesday’s minicamp practice. Benjamin said the injury to his right hamstring will likely keep him out of Thursday’s final minicamp practice, and Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera believes the hamstring issues could be related to Benjamin showing up to OTAs (organized team activities) overweight. (Charlotte Observer)

FFToday's Take: Eight to nine pounds overweight is being reported. Sounds like the coach is using the media to get his No.1 receiver into shape. Benjamin injured his hamstring last month at OTAs. He'll have six weeks to get healed before the Panthers begin training camp in late July.


Injury Kelvin Benjamin still out with hamstring injury
He's missed all OTA sessions

FFToday's Take: It's still early in the pre-season so there's no need to panic, but hamstring injuries can linger and become a nagging issue for many months. It's something to monitor as we roll towards training camp in late July.
