Kelvin Benjamin, Greg Olsen benefit from backup

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/14) 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.

Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin surpasses 100 yards Week 15

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/14/14) Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin totaled eight catches for 104 yards during a 19-17 win Week 15 against the Bucs. He was targeted 13 times and his longest catch went 21 yards.

Benjamin surpassed 100 yards for the third time this season. He has 952 receiving yards through 14 games.

The Panthers are back in action Week 16 against the Browns.

Panthers WR Benjamin held down, but does score in win

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/7/14) Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin was held to just two receptions Sunday in New Orleans. But one of them got his team kick-started to a blowout victory.

Benjamin caught a 9-yard touchdown pass just over the goal line three minutes into the game. He finished with only 24 yards receiving, however.

He will attempt greater overall production next Sunday against the Buccaneers.

History doesn't favor Panthers passing game

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/14) When Panthers quarterback Cam Newton last faced the Saints at home in Week 9, he threw for 151 yards and an interception. In two meetings with them last year, he threw for 160 and 181 yards. In seven meetings with them for his career, he has averaged just 196.4 passing yards, throwing six touchdown passes, or less than one per game, and five interceptions.

And that's against a team that has historically put up so many points itself that it's forced opponents to abandon the running game, making it historically one of the worst teams against the pass. That's certainly been the case this year. The Saints rank 28th against the pass, allowing 268.4 yards per game, and have given up the seventh-most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

And yet that history for Newton is impossible to overlook, especially since the Saints have been more or less the same kind of team during that time. They seem to have him figured out. Certainly, they've gotten enough looks.

That's bad news not only for Newton with the Panthers traveling to New Orleans in Week 14, but also his top target, rookie Kelvin Benjamin, whose production has mirrored Newton's this season. Against the Saints in Week 9, he had two catches for 18 yards.

Cam Newton stays late to work with Kelvin Benjamin

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/3/14) Following Wednesday's practice, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton worked with rookie wideout Kelvin Benjamin for more than a half-hour, reports the Charlotte Observer. Joining them on the practice field were offensive coordinator Mike Shula and quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey.

Benjamin has caught 57 of his 110 targets this season, for 824 yards and eight touchdowns. Carolina visits New Orleans on Sunday.
