Top-three WRs emerge in Carolina

USA Today - [Full Article]

The Carolina Panthers have settled some questions at wide receiver.

Coach Ron Rivera said rookie Kelvin Benjamin, a first-round draft pick from Florida State, and veteran newcomers Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant have emerged as the team's top three wide receivers.

"Those three guys have really stepped up and have really showed that they've meshed very nicely," Rivera said Tuesday as the Panthers wrapped up their 20th training camp at Wofford College.

Fantasy Impact: 

Benjamin is going to start creeping up draft boards this summer and continues to get great press for his impressive first perseason game and camp performances. Cotchery quietly had 10 TD catches last year and Avant is a very good slot receiver with great hands. While Cotchery and Avant won't be on a lot of fantasy teams, Benjamin is ranked 39th with an ADP of the 11th round, but you'll likely have to take him before that.
