DeAngelo Williams among Panthers ruled out for Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The seven players who have not practiced all week have been ruled out by the Panthers for their Sunday home game against Seattle.

That group consists of cornerback Bene Benwikere (ankle), linebacker Chase Blackburn (knee), wideout Philly Brown (concussion), guards Amini Silatolu (calf) and Trai Turner (knee) and running backs Fozzy Whittaker (thigh) and DeAngelo Williams (ankle).

Fellow running back Chris Ogbonnaya (groin) and linebacker Jason Williams (hip) are questionable while offensive linemen Nate Chandler (thigh) and Byron Bell (elbow) are probable.

Panthers list RB Chris Ogbonnaya questionable for Sunday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Panthers backup running back Chris Ogbonnaya was officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks in Week 8, the team announced. Ogbonnaya was carted off the practice field with a groin injury on Friday, leaving his status for Sunday up in the air. If he is unable to play, the team could look to Fozzy Whittaker and Darrin Reaves to work behind Jonathan Stewart.

Kelvin Benjamin probably a worthwhile risk
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Only you can say for sure whether you should start Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin this week because only you know your alternatives. But Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard have him in their top 24 wide receivers, which makes him an advisable start in standard 12-team leagues. And while I might rank Andre Johnson, Mohamed Sanu and Doug Baldwin ahead of him, I generally agree with their assessment.

Clearly, though, it isn't a slam dunk, and the main reason why is Richard Sherman. He's not quite Darrelle Revis in his prime, but he's been known to shut down a top flight wide receiver or two. He just held the Rams' Brian Quick to two catches for 33 yards in Week 7.

Of course, Benjamin is probably better than Quick and plays for a team with a more consistent passing attack. His size makes him an ideal red zone target, and he's scored a touchdown in five of seven games this season. How do you sit that?

Again, you probably don't, but keep your expectations in check for Benjamin this week.

Cam Newton too hard to predict
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

In Week 8, the Panthers host the Seahawks, who have been a tough matchup for quarterbacks in recent years. Not so much this year, though. The Seahawks rank 16th against the pass, surrendering 239.0 yards per game, and have allowed the fifth-highest passer rating of any team this season. They've also given up the ninth-most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

So the matchup really isn't the concern for Cam Newton this week. Cam Newton himself is. After breaking out with 284 passing yards and 107 rushing yards Week 6 at Cincinnati, he had a chance to solidify his place in Fantasy in what figured to be a high-scoring affair Week 7 at Green Bay. But while he once again contributed as a rusher with seven carries for 41 yards -- another sign that his surgically repaired ankle is feeling better -- he wasn't productive enough throwing the ball to satisfy his Fantasy owners.

Of course, the Packers have allowed the lowest quarterback rating of any team this season, so maybe Newton is more the quarterback we saw two weeks ago than not. Unlike Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard, I'd have him in my top 12 for this week, but just barely.
