Fantasy Profile: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Carolina Panthers

Kelvin Benjamin had a solid rookie campaign in 2014, catching 73 passes for 1008 yards and 9 touchdowns. He was the best receiver on Carolina’s roster and was able to provide quarterback Cam Newton with a big target every Sunday. Benjamin got better every week and showed serious potential in the NFC Divisional round in Seattle. He had seven receptions for 75 yards and two scores against the best secondary in football.

With a whole year and another off-season to develop chemistry with Newton, Benjamin’s numbers should improve this year. He could be a top 15 receiver at the end of the year and would be a wise draft choice due to number of targets and touchdowns he should get this season, as the Panthers go to wide receiver.
