2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Kelvin Benjamin was one of the early injury causalities of the 2015 season following a torn ACL. The team moved on without him just fine in making the Super Bowl, yet early drafters were left scouring the waiver wire before the first week of the season. All reports on Benjamin’s knee since the surgery have been positive to date. The huge six-foot five-inch receiver has been focusing on regaining strength and conditioning early in preseason workouts. Carolina fully expects him to be healthy and ready to ramp up his activities once training camp opens. Cam Newton has officially taken over as the leader of the offense as both passer and rusher. Nonetheless, Benjamin represents a huge upgrade over what the Panthers lined up on the outside a year ago. Newton may need time to rediscover the chemistry the two shared in 2014 but it shouldn’t take too long before Benjamin is seeing plenty of work in the passing game. Carolina’s top wideout remains outside the top ten fantasy receivers due to lower target upside than his peers and his quarterback’s efficiency running the ball near the goal. If he can show the knee is fully healthy, Benjamin should reach pay dirt enough to provide his owners with quality WR2 level production. Unfortunately, anything less would not validate his current third round price tag. As a player carrying unknown injury risk and limitations in a low volume passing scheme, he may not offer investors as much room for profit unless his value drops prior to your draft.

Injury Benjamin limited to individual drills during OTAs
Rehabbing ACL injury

Carolina Panthers
Kelvin Benjamin did mostly individual work Tuesday, running routes “on air” - as Panthers coach Ron Rivera called it - rather than against actual defensive backs. That will come. The training staff is not going to rush back the team’s No. 1 wide receiver nine months after surgery. “You take it slow and then you build up,” Benjamin said. “So you’re basically coming out and you walk some routes. Then you start jogging. Then you’re full speed eventually. So it’s just trusting it and getting that confidence.” (Charlotte Observer)

FFToday's Take: It appears Benjamin will begin seriously testing his knee during training camp at the end of July. “I’m not where I want to be, but I’m still getting there,” Benjamin said. “It’s just getting that football wind back.” Benjamin is being drafted in the middle of the third round, WR15 in early redraft leagues. He's on the radar for WR2 value.
