He's finished inside the top-20 wide receivers in both seasons he's played, but it's hard to feel confident in him, knowing that he's had weight issues for the second-straight off-season. The additions of Christian McCaffrey and Curtis Samuel will likely eat up some of the shorter targets that used to go to him.

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.

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.
