Kelvin Benjamin on track to play Week 7

WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) made the trip to Wisconsin, per team official. All signs point to him playing Sunday vs. Packers.

Fantasy Impact:

As we stated earlier, the Panthers play early on Sunday, so we'll know if there are any last-minute setbacks by around noon. His absence would be a downgrade for QB Cam Newton and an upgrade for TE Greg Olsen and WR Jerricho Cotchery, but at this point he looks like he's going to play.

Scouting Report

Week 8 – Greg Olsen vs. Seattle

Greg Olsen put up another good stat line last week against the Packers, despite a blowout loss for Carolina. He ended up with eight receptions, catching every ball that was thrown to him, for 105 yards. Olsen is now 13th in the league, and leads all tight ends with 493 receiving yards, and he may be on his way to his first career pro bowl.

This week, Olsen faces a Seattle defense that has struggled in recent weeks, and he’ll continue to be the most reliable receiving option for quarterback Cam Newton. Seattle has given up eight touchdowns so far this season to opposing tight ends, and Olsen will look for his sixth on the season as the Panthers try to bounce back from last week’s loss. He’s a top five play and should be active in all leagues.
