Panthers' Kelvin Benjamin: Gets fifth-year option picked up by Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin will have his fifth-year option picked up by the Panthers, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

This comes as little surprise as Benjamin, when healthy, has been the team's best receiver since landing in Carolina in 2014. He hauled in 63 of 118 targets for 941 yards and seven touchdowns in 2016 and proved to be a reliable threat deep down the field with 10 receptions of 20-or-more yards. According to Person, Benjamin's option figures to be in the $8 million range in 2018.

Panthers' Kelvin Benjamin: Totals 93 yards, TD in Week 17 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin secured six of seven targets for 93 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Bucs.

Benjamin closed out his third season in fine fashion, ripping off a game-long 47-yard catch-and-run and also hauling in a five-yard touchdown from Cam Newton with 17 seconds remaining in the game. While the ensuing two-point conversion was unsuccessful, the performance provided Benjamin with some momentum heading into the offseason. He wraps up 2016 with a combined 10 catches for 156 yards and two touchdowns over his last two contests.

Panthers' Kelvin Benjamin: Scores lone touchdown in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin had four catches for 63 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in Saturday's 33-16 loss to Atlanta.

Benjamin caught his team's lone touchdown of the evening from 26 yards out on the final play of the third quarter. The 25-year-old wide receiver has rebounded with 848 yards and six scores after missing the entire 2015 campaign due to torn ACL. This was just his second touchdown since Week 4, though.

Panthers' Kelvin Benjamin: Practices in full Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Benjamin (back) was a full practice participant Thursday, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Benjamin's workload is a positive step, as Thursday's uncapped session marked his first since injuring his back on a hard fall last Wednesday. Although his outings have been mostly barren of late, he and the Panthers welcome the Falcons' 30th-ranked pass defense to town Saturday, which could be the recipe required to get his season back in track.

Panthers' Kelvin Benjamin: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Benjamin (back) was limited in practice Wednesday, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

One week removed from taking a fall in practice, Benjamin's back continues to ail him and ensure a cap on his reps, both in advance of and on game day. This was clearly evidenced by the fact that he managed to pick up just 43 of 73 offensive snaps during Monday's victory at Washington, resulting in a measly two receptions for 20 yards. Benjamin has actually been embroiled in a dour stretch, production-wise, for some time, gathering in just five of 17 passes for 49 yards and no touchdowns over the last three contests. Until his health improves, he may remain a difficult option to trust, despite his noteworthy pedigree.
