  Panthers | DeAngelo Williams out again    Thu Oct 23, 04:26 PM

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) didn't practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: You know what would be news? If Williams wasn't out. Maybe that's the bar to set for whether Williams is newsworthy. Last week Jonathan Stewart was awful and he faces a Seattle defense which, even a shadow of its 2013 self, is still enough to keep him as no more than a weak RB3.

  Panthers | DeAngelo Williams sitting out    Wed Oct 22, 12:45 PM

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Sure, Williams could be back this week...maybe, possibly, perhaps. Fantasy owners really want to avoid the Carolina backfield if at all possible. Even Jonathan Stewart is nothing more than a RB3/flex play in Week 8 against the Seahawks.

Carolina Panthers CB Bene Benwikere (ankle) will return as the starting nickel cornerback when he's back from his injury, according to head coach Ron Rivera. If Benwikere can't play in Week 8 against the Seattle Seahawks, then CB James Dockery could get a look in that position.

  Panthers | Releasing Charles Godfrey    Tue Oct 21, 03:10 PM

The Carolina Panthers released CB Charles Godfrey Tuesday, Oct 21.

Footballguys view: Godfrey suffered an Achilles' injury last year that knocked him out for most of the 2013 season. He's struggled to make an impact this year at both slot corner and safety for the Panthers. There might be some team willing to take a chance on Godfrey going forward.

  Panthers | DeAngelo Williams to return this week?    Mon Oct 20, 02:49 PM

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) will reportedly return to practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Williams could come back, but fantasy owners are best off leaving him out of the lineup. He'll be splitting time with Jonathan Stewart, and we can't recommend him as anything more than a 'what the heck' flex in deep leagues.

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.

Footballguys view: Jonathan Stewart gets the start for the Panthers, and he's worth a flex play against the Packers weak run defense.

  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.

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion), who looked good while practicing in full Friday, Oct. 17, has yet to be cleared by an independent doctor in the concussion protocol. 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.

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.

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

  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.

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.
