Kelvin Benjamin working hard to get in shape

It has been reported that Kelvin Benjamin has shown up overweight, but that was more or less offset by the Panthers picking up his fifth-year option. The Panthers have confidence in him and he is working hard to retain that trust, as he was at the Bank of America Stadium shedding the extra weight during rookie minicamp. (Charlotte Observer)

Fantasy Impact
Benjamin will have to share a lot of touches in the Panthers' offense, now that they added two explosive rookies, but he is still the top wide receiver on the team. Whether or not he'll improve has yet to be seen. His rookie season was his, with his 2015 season being shut down due to injury and his 2016 season being a bit of a disappointment due to inconsistent production and a lack of improvement. Now two-years removed from the injury, the only obstacle in his way is his weight. If he can get that down, he should return to form and improve off of what was a promising rookie year.
