Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) took full practice reps again Friday. Benjamin will play through the knee and rib injuries. He has a great matchup with the Saints and with Greg Olsen out, he may see even more usage in Week 3.

Week 3 vs. New Orleans Saints
Kelvin Benjamin had a dismal Week 1, catching only 1 pass for 25 yards. However, he rebounded against the Bills last week with 6 receptions for 77 yards. He now leads the team with 13 targets through two games and may get an increase in looks with the reliable Greg Olsen out with a broken foot.
Benjamin faces the league’s worst pass defense this week. The Saints have allowed 777 yards and 6 touchdowns through the air so far this season, and they have a potent enough offense to keep the Panthers from running the clock out late in the game. Benjamin should put up fringe WR1 numbers in a great matchup and should be active in all league formats.
