Panthers TE Greg Olsen, WR Kelvin Benjamin crack 1,000-yard mark
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/28/14) 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.
Panthers TE Greg Olsen snags just one against Browns

|(12/21/14) Those who assumed Panthers tight end Greg Olsen would gain the 40 yards he needed through the air to reach 1,000 on the season Sunday against Cleveland assumed wrong.
Olsen was held without a catch through three quarters and finished with one for 21 yards. It was his second-lowest output of the year. He was targeted just three times in the game.
He needs 19 yards at Atlanta next Sunday to earn his first 1,000-yard season.
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 TE Greg Olsen has second straight 10-catch game
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/14/14) Panthers tight end Greg Olsen had 10 catches for the second straight game and finished with a team-high 110 receiving yards during a 19-17 win Week 15 against the Bucs. He was targeted 13 times and his longest catch went 16 yards.
Olsen, who has just one touchdown in his last eight games, has three 100-yard outings in 2014. The Panthers are back in action Week 16 vs. Cleveland.
Panthers list seven probables for Week 15
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/12/14) The Panthers have ruled out quarterback Cam Newton (back) and guard Amini Silatolu (knee) for Week 14 against Tampa Bay. Running back DeAngelo Williams (hand) was the only player on Carolina's final injury report ruled doubtful for the game.
The following players were deemed as probable: Wide receiver Philly Brown (shoulder), cornerback Carrington Byndom (illness), center Ryan Kalil (rest), linebacker A.J. Klein (knee), tight end Greg Olsen (knee), guard Chris Scott (foot), guard Amini Silatolu (knee) and running back Jonathan Stewart (hip).
|For three straight years in Carolina Greg Olsen's reception totals have gone up from 45 to 69 to 73. This year might be the biggest of all as Olsen projects to be the Panthers' most reliable receiver considering their lack of talent and depth at the wide receiver position. Olsen is also the most experienced receiving outlet Cam Newton has left after the Panthers purged their receiving corps this offseason. Olsen's receiving average is modest (11.2 yards per catch in 2013) and his speed isn't great, but the mere fact that he's a regular for Newton to aim for in an offense that should be more tight end-oriented given the receiving personnel makes Olsen a pretty good Fantasy option. He's finished as a Top 10 tight end each of the last two years and can be had at a good value (Round 8 in standard, Round 7 in PPR) this summer.
