The Carolina Panthers have declared OG Amini Silatolu, CB Bene Benwikere, LB Chase Blackburn, RB DeAngelo Williams, RB Fozzy Whittaker, QB Joe Webb, CB Josh Norman inactive for Week 7.

  Panthers | DeAngelo Williams to miss Week 7    Sat Oct 18, 12:48 PM

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 7.

Footballguys view: Not a shock at this point, which means Jonathan Stewart will get the bulk of the carries though he remains not more than an RB3/flex play.

  Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin still not cleared    Sat Oct 18, 12:43 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) still needs to pass one more concussion tests before being cleared to play in Week 7.

Footballguys view: If he plays--and it's still a big if--we see him as a low-end WR3 this week. If he doesn't play, Cotchery gets a little bump into a more solid WR5 but the bulk of targets will go to Greg Olsen who is a top TE1 this week.

Head coach Ron Rivera expects Benjamin to be cleared Saturday, Oct. 18. 'He looked good on the field,' Rivera said. 'He practiced well. He was sharp. I really don't think he had a (mental error). He took a lot of reps today, which I understand is part of protocol.' Benjamin passed sideline concussion tests in Week 6 and was allowed to return to the game.

  Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin practices in full    Fri Oct 17, 02:12 PM

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 17. He is listed as questionable for Week 7.

Footballguys view: This is all trending in the right direction if you own Benjamin. Don't write his name in your lineup in pen, but right now it is looking good for him to at least be cleared for Sunday's game at Green Bay.

  Panthers | Jonathan Stewart probable    Fri Oct 17, 02:08 PM

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and is listed as probable for Week 7.

Footballguys view: Consider Stewart a "what the heck flex" as the Panthers running game has been stuck in neutral. He could have a solid stat line on sheer volume against the porous Packers run defense, although Cam Newton is more likely to score on the ground at the goal line now that he's healthy.

  Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin practicing with helmet    Fri Oct 17, 01:05 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) practiced with his helmet on Friday, Oct. 17, and appeared to look good while doing every drill. The Charlotte Observer's Joe Person believes that Benjamin will play in Week 7 against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Cautious optimism is the path here for Benjamin owners and the Panthers. If he is active, he should be a nice play against the Packers in a potential shootout.

  Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin questionable    Fri Oct 17, 12:46 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Benjamin owners should expect to not have him on Sunday because of his late start in the concussion protocol, but check back in Sunday morning to see if he is cleared.

  Panthers | Jerricho Cotchery a sneaky start?    Thu Oct 16, 05:48 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Jerricho Cotchery could be a sneaky start this week if WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) is unable to play. Even with Benjamin in the lineup last week, Cotchery saw 10 targets in a tie with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: If Benjamin is scratched because of his concussion, then we like Cotchery as a WR3/flex play with upside.

  Panthers | Jonathan Stewart a full participant again    Thu Oct 16, 04:25 PM

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: Stewart should get the start and most of the carries, but isn't more than a an RB3/flex guy. Buyer beware, he wasn't looking good in the 15 seconds (give or take a few) he was healthy earlier this year.

  Panthers | DeAngelo Williams still not practicing    Thu Oct 16, 04:23 PM

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) did not practice for the second straight day this week Thursday, Oct. 16.

  Panthers | Two Panthers RBs sitting out    Thu Oct 16, 11:58 AM

Carolina Panthers RB Darrin Reaves (calf) and RB Fozzy Whittaker (thigh) are not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: And so things are somewhat full circle as we are back to Jonathan Stewart being the lead back again. He's still no more than a RB3, though if Reaves is out completely, he might fill in as a low-end RB2.

  Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin not on the field    Thu Oct 16, 11:54 AM

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) is not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: This is something to watch as he is still in concussion protocol. If he plays, we see him as a low-end WR2. If he doesn't play, bump Jerricho Cotchery up a tad from a WR4 to a WR3.

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) said he is feeling better and expects to play in Week 7.

Footballguys view: Awesome....most fantasy owners should be avoiding this backfield. If you're desperate, then you can put in Stewart as a 'what the heck' flex.

  Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin working the middle    Mon Oct 13, 11:54 AM

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin took four big hits on catches Sunday, Oct. 12, and held on to the ball. He has been reliable running routes over the middle except for a fumble last week.

Footballguys view: Benjamin has the size to run routes over the middle fearlessly. He's tough to bring down, and his large wingspan means he can hi-point passes that defenders can't get to.

  Panthers | Cam Newton takes big step    Mon Oct 13, 09:40 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) rushed 17 times for 107 yards in Week 6 Sunday, Oct. 12. Head coach Ron Rivera said Newton was pretty close to being fully back from offseason ankle surgery.

Footballguys view: This is the Newton we know and love! After battling through rib and ankle injuries this year, Newton finally looked like his old self in Week 6. The Panthers backfield is a mess right now, and that just means more Newton as a rusher. Now that he's running again, Newton should be considered a QB1 with the upside to finish as a top-5 fantasy QB every week.

Carolina Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker (leg) left the team's Week 6 game early because of a leg injury and is questionable to return.
