• Jonathan Stewart - RB
    Posted 12/7/16 2:28pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (rest) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: It was simply a day of rest for Stewart. He'll be fine for Week 14 in a plus matchup against the San Diego Chargers. San Diego has given up 16 total touchdowns to running backs this year, tied for second most in the NFL behind the San Francisco 49ers.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR
    Posted 12/5/16 10:22am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin has scored only once since Week 4 and failed to catch more than three passes in any of his last three games. When asked about the team's top receiver Monday, Dec. 5, head coach Ron Rivera said, 'Maybe we did get him out there too soon, too much (after last year's torn ACL).'

    Huddle Up: It's unclear what exactly led to this moment of public reflection from Rivera, but Benjamin has actually been more efficient with his targets this year than he was as a rookie. Greg Olsen's production has also fallen off a cliff recently as well, suggesting the injuries on the offensive line - which may or may not be having a profound effect on Cam Newton - and the defensive struggles may be conspiring to keep the offense from realizing its full potential. Benjamin is a WR3 until further notice.

  • Cam Newton - QB
    Posted 12/4/16 5:36pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton did not start in the Week 13 game against the Seattle Seahawks due to disciplinary reasons, according to reports. The decision was head coach Ron Rivera's, and Newton is healthy.

    Huddle Up: Derek Anderson started and promptly through an interception on the first play from scrimmage, so it's unlikely the punishment will last very long.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR
    Posted 12/2/16 6:23pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Ted Ginn Jr. (non-injury) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 2, and isn't listed on the Week 13 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Ginn has shown signs of life the last two weeks. He is worth adding if available, but he is a bit of a reach as fantasy play in Week 13 against the tough Seattle secondary.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR
    Posted 12/2/16 6:19pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 2, and wasn't listed on the Week 13 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Temper expectations for Benjamin with a tough matchup against Seattle on tap and deploy him as a WR3 in Week 13.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB
    Posted 12/2/16 6:30pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (non-injury) returned to practice and was a full participant Friday, Dec. 2, and he isn't listed on the Week 13 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Stewart should be rested for the Week 13 matchup against Seattle. The Seahawks have a solid run defense, but Stewart's heavy workload should still allow him to produce low-end RB2 numbers.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB
    Posted 12/1/16 8:24pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (non-injury) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Stewart's steady workload should keep him in the RB2 conversation, but his ceiling is limited against a Seattle defense allowing just 3.5 yards per carry.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR
    Posted 12/1/16 8:21pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Ted Ginn Jr. (non-injury) returned to practice and was a full participant Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Ginn earned 10 targets and topped 100 yards last weekend, but he is still a shot-in-the-dark play in Week 13 against the stingy Seattle secondary.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR
    Posted 12/1/16 8:16pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (shoulder) returned to practice on limited basis Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin faces the tough Seattle secondary in Week 13, and he should be used as a WR3 if he is able to play.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR
    Posted 11/30/16 6:56pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 30, due to a shoulder ailment.

    Huddle Up: Keep an eye on Benjamin as the week of practice goes on. He might be able to play, but he faces a very difficult matchup for fantasy owners against a strong Seattle pass defense.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB
    Posted 11/30/16 6:58pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (rest) was held out of practice Wednesday, Nov. 30, but the absence was not injury related and simply rest.

    Huddle Up: Stewart faces a rough stretch over the next few weeks, as he'll be facing top-notch rushing defenses for the remainder of the fantasy regular season and into the playoffs. Fantasy owners will want to treat him more as a low-end RB2 or even flex play.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR
    Posted 11/30/16 6:57pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Ted Ginn Jr. (rest) was held out of practice Wednesday, Nov. 30, as he was given a veteran's mid-week rest.

    Huddle Up: Ginn is coming off a big game in Oakland, but he is likely to find a lot less space to roam free against the Seattle Seahawks and the Legion of Boom in Week 13.

  • Greg Olsen - TE
    Posted 11/27/16 10:40pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen managed just four receptions for 45 yards on five targets in the Week 12 game against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Olsen's fantasy line was rather disappointing considering how poor the Raiders pass defense has been. He'll look to rebound in Week 13 on the road in Seattle, but it might be tough sledding against a much tougher pass D.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR
    Posted 11/27/16 10:39pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin posted two receptions for 53 yards in the Week 12 game against the Oakland Raiders, including a 44-yard touchdown in the second half. He was targeted six times.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin stomped off the field, threw his helmet and berated a coach in the second half after apparently being pulled. However, he regrouped and salvaged his stat line with a long touchdown in the final quarter. He remains more of a low-end WR2 heading into Week 13 at Seattle.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR
    Posted 11/27/16 10:39pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Ted Ginn Jr. rolled up four receptions for 115 yards in the Week 12 game against the Oakland Raiders, including an 88-yard touchdown in the second half.

    Huddle Up: Ginn has touchdowns in back-to-back outings after being blanked in the first nine games. His previous yardage high was 62 yards back in Week 3, so temper expectations going forward. He remains more of a WR4 heading into Week 13 on the road against the Seattle Seahawks.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB
    Posted 11/27/16 10:37pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart rushed 17 times for 96 yards with two touchdowns in the Week 12 game against the Oakland Raiders. He was targeted once in the pass game and he did not have a catch.

    Huddle Up: Stewart just missed on 100 total yards from scrimmage, but he still had a productive day for his fantasy owners. He will have a difficult matchup on the road against the Seattle Seahawks on the road in Week 13, but he can still be trusted as a low-end RB2 in most fantasy leagues.

  • Cam Newton - QB
    Posted 11/27/16 10:06pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 14 of his 28 pass attempts for 246 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Week 12 game against the Oakland Raiders. He also rushed three times for six yards and a score.

    Huddle Up: Newton has struggled by his standards, but he remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues for his ability with his arm and his legs. He has a tough matchup in Week 14 at Seattle, however.

  • Greg Olsen - TE
    Posted 11/25/16 3:28pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 25, but is not on the injury report for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Olsen should be fine for this week's game and will see his normal workload. He has seen his receiving yards drop over the last few weeks but should continue to be a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR
    Posted 11/17/16 6:02pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (arm) exited against the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Nov. 17, and is having his left arm examined by trainers.

    Huddle Up: If Benjamin's injury turns out to be serious, Devin Funchess and Ted Ginn would see a boost in value going forward.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR
    Posted 11/17/16 6:19pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (shoulder) went to the locker room for X-rays on his left shoulder and is questionable to return against the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Nov. 17.

    Huddle Up: If Benjamin's injury turns into an extended absence, target Devin Funchess on the waiver wire.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR
    Posted 11/17/16 9:16pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Ted Ginn Jr. scored his first touchdown of the season, finishing with three catches for 46 yards and one carry for 13 yards in a 23-20 win over the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Nov. 17.

    Huddle Up: Ginn is always capable of breaking a big play, but he has been quiet for most of the year. Although he finally scored, he remains a shot-in-the-dark option in DFS formats.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR
    Posted 11/17/16 9:38pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (shoulder) finished with three catches for 56 yards in a 23-20 win over the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Nov. 17. He briefly left to have his left shoulder evaluated, but he was able to return.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin underwhelmed against a beatable New Orleans defense, but the good news is that his injury wasn't serious. He should be safe to deploy as a WR2 against the Raiders in Week 12.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB
    Posted 11/16/16 11:14am ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (non-injury) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Stewart has received some practice time off over the last few weeks but has been able to play. He has been held to 42 yards or less in each of the last two games and has not posted a 100-yard game this season. He can be a flex option for owners but is not a must-start player.

  • Greg Olsen - TE
    Posted 11/16/16 9:31pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen will meet the New Orleans Saints in Week 11 Thursday, Nov. 17. He has just 11 catches for 102 yards and a touchdown over his past three games, and he has been targeted 18 times. Olsen posted six grabs for 94 yards on seven targets in the first meeting in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Olsen has been struggling lately, but he is a must-start fantasy option whenever he is active. The Saints are dead last against the NFL in pass defense, giving up 292.7 yards per game through nine outings.

  • Cam Newton - QB
    Posted 11/16/16 8:45pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton will face the New Orleans Saints in Week 11 Thursday, Nov. 17. He completed 27 of his 47 pass attempts for 322 yards, two touchdowns and an interceptions, and he rushed for another score in the first meeting in Week 6 in Louisiana.

    Huddle Up: Newton has struggled over the past three games, tossing just two TDs and running for another, but he should roll against a Saints pass defense which ranks dead last in the NFL, allowing 292.7 yards per game through nine outings.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB
    Posted 11/15/16 9:48am ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Stewart didn't appear to suffer an injury in the Panthers' Week 10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, but this is something to keep an eye on with Carolina hosting the New Orleans Saints on Thursday. For now, owners should treat this as a rest day and pencil in Stewart as a low-end RB2. Cameron Artis-Payne would likely be called upon to start if J-Stew cannot go.

  • Jonathan Stewart - RB
    Posted 11/13/16 2:02pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart ran 13 times for 39 yards in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He did not catch a pass.

    Huddle Up: After scoring four times over two games, J-Stew has been invisible the past two weeks for trusting fantasy gamers. Said owners will be quite wary going forward, but a Week 11 matchup with the New Orleans Saints should help right the ship.

  • Cam Newton - QB
    Posted 11/13/16 1:58pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton threw 38 times, connecting on 23 of attempts, for 261 yards. He passed for one touchdown and an interception. Newton rushed 12 times for 54 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: The leg work obviously helped his value for the day. Newton's Panthers host the New Orleans Saints on a short week this Thursday night, which should prove to be another quality fantasy day for Superman.

  • Devin Funchess - WR
    Posted 11/13/16 2:21pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess caught three passes for 56 yards and a touchdown in a Week 10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Funchess is a difficult play most weeks, but a matchup with the New Orleans Saints in Week 11 should make that decision slightly easier. He has flex appeal for owners in deep leagues or those facing a bye.

  • Kelvin Benjamin - WR
    Posted 11/13/16 2:16pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin caught seven passes for 84 yards in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He lost a fumble after the ball was stripped by Chiefs CB Marcus Peters.

    Huddle Up: Benjamin is a quality PPR play more often than not and requires residency in your lineup. Carolina hosts the New Orleans Saints in Week 11.
