2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
I was certainly on the Kelvin Benjamin bandwagon at this time last year and still find myself baffled as to why he wasn't able to do more in 2016. Cam Newton may not be the best passer in the league but he doesn't need to be Drew Brees when throwing to a guy who stands six-foot five-inches tall! Cam Newton threw more passes to his tight end than he did to Benjamin. Greg Olsen is a truly great player, but not finding a way to get one of the hardest players to defend more involved in the passing game was a grave mistake not likely to be repeated in 2017. The gap between Benjamin and the next best receiver is sizable so there should be enough targets to make Benjamin a legit WR1 in the fake game. His touchdown upside makes him extremely attractive after the first two rounds and his current sixth round ADP seems criminally low. If Kelvin Benjamin can post top twenty fantasy points on 117 targets and only one 100-plus-yard game, he can be scary good with even the slightest of rebounds from Newton.

News From The Past 90 Days
Kelvin Benjamin trimmed down this spring
WR reportedly weighed nearly 270 pounds at one point
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jun 19, 5:50 pm

Carolina Panthers
Whatever Kelvin Benjamin tipped the scales at in April - Ron Rivera says it wasn't 280 pounds, although he might have been touching 270 - the fourth-year wideout seemed to get the message Rivera sent publicly after the draft. Benjamin needs to show up to Spartanburg looking like he did the final day of minicamp, when he reached down to pluck a pass a couple inches off the grass and got both feet inbounds. (The Charlotte Observer)

FFToday's Take: Benjamin is always going to be a big receiver, but his weight fluctuation continues to be an issue. At his best, KB is nearly unstoppable on high-point throws and in the red zone. A slim-and-trim Benjamin is critical for the Panthers as they make their transition from a power-running team to one more reliant on versatile big-play rookies Christian McCaffrey and Curtis Samuel.
