Panthers' Kelvin Benjamin catches two scores in loss
by Chris Cwik |

Panthers wideout Kelvin Benjamin scored twice in Saturday's loss to the Seahawks.

Benjamin turned in a productive game, hauling in seven passes for 75 yards. He was Cam Newton's favorite option, picking up a team-high 10 targets. Benjamin was solid early in the contest, but didn't really pick up his big gains until the game was nearly out of hand. With Carolina fighting to get back in the game, Benjamin hauled in catches of 12, 15 and 28 yards in the fourth quarter. 

Benjamin also had a shot at a third touchdown, but could not get both feet in bounds after making a tremendous catch in the back of the end zone in the second quarter.

by Igor Mello |

Panthers tight end Greg Olsen and wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin each surpassed the 1,000-yard threshold on the season during Sunday's win over the Falcons in Week 17. They became the second duo in franchise history to reach 1,000-plus yards since Patrick Jeffers and Muhsin Muhammad in 1999.

Olsen caught two of three passes thrown his way for 27 yards. He has 84 catches for 1,008 yards and six touchdowns this season. Benjamin turned in five targets into one catch for 9 yards. He finishes his rookie campaign with 73 catches for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns. 

The Panthers will advance to the first round of the playoffs next week against Arizona.

Trio of Panthers receivers pitch in to Sunday victory
by Marty Gitlin |

No Panthers receivers totaled more than five receptions for 47 yards Sunday against Cleveland, but a trio did make decent contributions.

Kelvin Benjamin finished with five catches for 47 yards, including an acrobatic 18-yarder in the second quarter. Fellow wideout Jerricho Cotchery added 46 yards on five receptions while tight end Ed Dickson had two catches for 44 yards. Among them was a huge 34-yarder with time ticking off the clock that iced the victory.

Kelvin Benjamin, Greg Olsen benefit from backup
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Going without quarterback Cam Newton, who's sidelined by two fractures in his back, may seem like bad news for the Panthers offense as a whole, but in two games with backup Derek Anderson under center, that hasn't proven to be the case for the team's top two receiving threats, wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin and tight end Greg Olsen.

Benjamin had eight catches for 104 yards Week 15 against Tampa Bay. It was his second game in his last six with more than 75 receiving yards. He's had six of those games in all this season. Two of them have come in Anderson's two starts.

Olsen had 10 catches for 110 yards Week 15 against Tampa Bay. It was his second game in his last seven with more than 75 receiving yards. He's had four of those games in all this season. Two of them have come in Anderson's two starts.

Both players also got 13 targets in Week 15, equaling a season high for Benjamin and setting a season high for Olsen.

Of course, Anderson's 40 pass attempts were more than Newton has had in all but two starts this season, but maybe that's the point. The plays Newton contributes with his legs rob from the potential plays he could make with his arm, which limits Benjamin's and Olsen's targets. If nothing else, it means you should stick with Benjamin and Olsen in Fantasy even if Newton remains sidelined for Week 16 against Cleveland.
