Benjamin Joins Lacy At McDonalds

Pyro's take: Kelvin Benjamin came into the league weighing 240 at the combine when he had his 9 touchdown rookie campaign. Benjamin reportedly showed up to camp weighing 280. If Benjamin doesn't get that weight down then expect to see him on your waiver wire for most of the season.

Fantasy Goo: Only one active player since the NFL merger in 1970 has been over 250 pounds and got more than 500 receiving yards. Who> Jimmy Graham. If Benjamin doesn't get into shape don't expect him to land his fat ass on the field.

Benjamin is a Great Buy Low

Pyro's take: KB leads all pass catchers in air yards in the last 3 weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Not only that, today he will face Troy Hill, a CB who is 65 pounds lighter and 6 inches shorter. Out of all 78 starting CBs this week, Hill is allowing the most FF Points per route run.

Cam Newton Is All About The Benjamin$ In 2016

Mike Kraft

Pyro's take: Mike Craft, a reporter for Panthers Insider, believes the entire Panthers' offense significantly improves with the addition of Kelvin Benjamin. This is a scary thought for the league considering Cam Newton is coming off an MVP season and accounted for nearly 4,500 yards and 45 TDs. But, in reality, Benjamin should force defenses to give him more attention providing openings for Devin Funchess, Ted Ginn, Greg Olsen and Jonathan Stewart.

Fantasy Goo: Although the return of Kelvin Benjamin will help several players within the offense, he primarily helps Cam Newton. From a fantasy perspective, many were scared to draft Cam Newton last year because it appeared he had very few weapons around him. Well, he has a ton of weapons this year and the Panthers should be on a mission to rebound from their heartbreaking Super Bowl loss. Cam Newton should be the first or second QB taken in upcoming drafts.

Kelvin Benjamin Coming Back With A Vengeance In 2016

Carolina Panthers

Pyro's take: Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin seems primed for a great season. According to QB Cam Newton, his star receiver is determined to make an impact, "Benji’s coming back with a vengeance. And I mean it. And not only that, he’s challenged more so from the production that Ted [Ginn] has had, the production that Fun [Devin Funchess] has had, that Philly [Brown], that Greg [Olsen], everybody." (USA Today)

Fantasy Goo: Benjamin had a solid rookie campaign with 73 receptions for 1008 yards and nine touchdowns. Although he sat out his sophomore season due to an ACL injury, he is now healthy and ready for training camp. Benjamin, who was targeted 145 times his rookie season, hopes to build on his chemistry with Cam Newton. Since his injury the team has put together an effective offensive line and run game, allowing Newton to be comfortable and efficient in the pocket. Benjamin, who is already a 6'5" matchup nightmare, should benefit from the new and improved offense.

Panthers looking more to share the passing wealth in 2016

Mr. @DNewtonespn also told me today to expect a lower target share for Kelvin Benjamin and more of a "committee" approach at WR.

Pyro's take: Mr. @DNewtonespn also told me today to expect a lower target share for Kelvin Benjamin and more of a "committee" approach at WR. That's not to suggest Benjamin will be a part-time player. But he was a workhorse as a rookie. They figure to spread it out more in '16.

Fantasy Goo: Some of us are excited to see what Cam can do with Kelvin Benjamin but, instead of hearing a boatload of encouraging news we keep hearing less than rip-roaring reviews so far. Carolina has 5 nice pass catchers available such as Kelvin Benjamin, Devin Funchess, Greg Olsen (TE), Ted Ginn and Corey “Philly” Brown. If Kelvin can come out of the gate week 1 with a positive performance it could help his confidence to build towards a quality season. Newton is ready to shine and can make a wide receiver look fantasy relevant as he did with Kelvin his rookie season and Ted Ginn last season including through the NFL playoffs. Greg Olsen is a top 3 tight end who will keep the defenses honest which can only help Kelvin Benjamin find his way. Until we hear better news from Kelvin’s training camp performance you might want to steer clear of his lofty current mock draft spot as the 14th wide receiver taken. Yummy candy is hard to ignore so, if Kelvin arouses the fantasy community this preseason then grab him!

Kelvin Benjamin had trouble catching his breath

After he finished running wind sprints following Tuesday’s practice, Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin had trouble catching his breath as he answered the first couple of questions from reporters.

Pyro's take: After he finished running wind sprints following Tuesday’s practice, Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin had trouble catching his breath as he answered the first couple of questions from reporters. “We’re taking it slowly,” Benjamin said. “I can’t wait for training camp.” – Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer

Fantasy Goo: 25 years young Kelvin Benjamin has an excellent opportunity to take Cam Newton’s passing game to a new level. Kelvin at 6’5” and 245 pounds is a dreaded match-up against just about any corner in the league. Kelvin went out last season with a torn left ACL during pre-season. Kelvin will need to get his confidence first. He must take some big hits to help him know that he is okay. Cam Newton loved him enough during his rookie year to bless Kelvin with 9 touchdowns. If he slightly improves can he get us 11 touchdowns in 2016? I am hoping so.

Kelvin Benjamin Participating In OTA'S

Carolina Panthers

Pyro's take: Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin participated in his first OTA practice on Thursday since tearing his ACL during last year's training camp.

Benjamin only participated in individual drills while sitting out team drills, but this is a clear sign that he will be full-go for training camp and the regular season. He should make for a decent WR2 this year as the team's second-best receiver behind tight end Greg Olsen.

Kelvin Benjamin will be limited in OTA


Pyro's take: Kelvin Benjamin is coming off an ACL tear from last year. After having a very solid rookie season he got injured prior to the beginning of the season and was out the season.

He is another nice sleeper pick as he was MIA the whole season and suffered from a torn ACL. With Cam Newton throwing darts, Benjamin could be in store for a great season.

Kelvin Benjamin (torn ACL, IR) did some light conditioning work off the side of practice Friday.


Pyro's take: Jonathan Jones via Twitter "Kelvin Benjamin getting some light work in 4 months after tearing ACL." (Video).

Its been five months since Benjamin tore his ACL, and most likely he will be out for offseason workouts, but might be ready for training camp.

If Cam Newton can do what he did without Benjamin all season, get ready for what might happen next year.

Practices in Full

Kelvin Benjamin practiced in full on Friday. This is significant, as it looks like he will pass the concussion test to play in Sunday's game. It looked grim earlier this week, but a full practice could have diminished in bad vibes.

Pyro's take: Keep an eye out for Sunday's report, as he is listed as questionable, but if you have to enter your lineups early, I say he starts and plays as though he never had a concussion occur.

Benjamin Concussed

Kelvin Benjamin suffered a concussion in Sunday's game against the Bengals. "Ron Rivera said he doesn't yet know if wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin will be able to play after suffering a concussion last week at Cincinnati."

"Kelvin came in on Monday and had a little bit of a headache. They looked at him and they said he has a mild concussion," Rivera said. "They put him in the protocol, and we are going to go from there.

"We feel good about the guys that are playing," Rivera said. "I think we are going to be OK whether he (Benjamin) is out there or not."

Pyro's take: At this point I would assume that Benjamin will be out this week. In that case, Jerricho Cotchery will become the number one receiver and Brenton Bersin, and Philly Brown.

Benjamin ROM

Kelvin Benjamin is the rookie of the month. Ron Rivera let Benjamin know prior to practice, and while everyone clapped for him, Mr. Benjamin responded with “I have a lot of things I can keep working on,” Benjamin said. “I haven’t even scratched the surface of my game yet.”

Benjamin has been an absolute stud, he is playing like a veteran as he leads the team in catches, yards, receiving touchdowns, yards per catch and yards per game. If that wasnt enough he also is ninth among NFL receivers in yards and 10th in the league with three touchdowns.

Rivera went on to say about Kelvin Benjamin “When he got here and just started going the way he did at training camp, it was not too big for him. And it was evident he was going to start.

“The kid’s doing a great job. He’s by no means where we want him to be but he’s outdone the expectations.”

Pyro's take: There is no doubt that Benjamin is one of the better talented rookies, and deserves the success he has achieved, but when the second best receiver is a tight end, the ranked statistical categories are going to be inflated. He makes a nice flex, or low second receiver, in all leagues.

Kelvin Benjamin dealing with bone bruise

The athletic training staff wants to make sure the Panthers' first-round draft choice is fully healed from a bone bruise to his left knee sustained Sunday before he returns to practice. Benjamin also missed practice Monday when he returned to Charlotte for an MRI.

"I went for a catch and just came down with all my body weight on my knee," Benjamin explained. "We looked at it and iced it, and the doctors checked it. Once I woke up the next morning, it was stiff, so (head athletic trainer) Ryan (Vermillion) just wanted to make sure it was OK."

Benjamin admitted to being nervous awaiting the results – "You always worry that it will be bad news," he said – but shortly after returning to Wofford College on Monday, he got the good news.

"It's minor," Benjamin said. "I'm going to come back even harder."

Pyro's take: Never a good sign to come down with an injury early in camp, especially when you are a rookie, and especially when you are a rookie receiver on the Panthers who has a chance for a lot of playing time. This time in camp is so important for a rookie receiver to create chemistry with his quarterback, and that translates into slow starts. Hopefully Benjamin gets back on the field soon, but this injury hurts his fantasy chances off the bat.

Panthers take Benjamin over Lee

The Panthers continued the overhaul of their receiving corps Thursday when they took former Florida State wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin with the 28th overall pick in the NFL Draft.

Dave Gettleman said the choice of Benjamin over the 6-foot, 192-pound Marquise Lee came down to size.

"You can't coach 6-5, 240," Gettleman said. "He's got a lot of upside. ... He gives us a legitimate threat to have a No. 1."

Pyro's take: The Panthers believe they have their big receiver of the future in Benjamin. He is a big dude, but he does not possess breakaway speed. The fact that Carolina is so thin at wide receiver gives him a chance to be an immediate fantasy producer. Although, I don't believe he has as high of a ceiling as many of the other receivers in this draft. This rookie reminds me of Dwayne Bowe.
