Week 2 WR Recap

Kelvin Benjamin is a star in the making. Last week he recorded 6 receptions for 92 yards and a touchdown. This week he was targeted 8 times for just 2 receptions and 46 receiving yards. He had a few drops and a spectacular one arm sideline grab. He is still raw but he is a fantasy must own… period. Keep in mind that three of the four Carolina running backs are banged up at the moment. Cam Newton will pass more this season because of that fact and also through the natural NFL maturation process. This is Cam’s fourth year and Carolina is ready to become a balanced or even a pass first team this season. Benjamin has had 8 targets in each game this year so expect 8-10 per game going forward. Benjamin is available in 5-40% of fantasy leagues.

Andrew Hawkins will be getting tons of attention later in the week. In week one he recorded 8 receptions for 87 yards and this week he put up 6 receptions for 70 yards. He has 22 total targets in his first two games. Hawkins cannot sustain this pace but you cannot ignore the targets and you have to ride the hot streak while it lasts. Hawkins is available in 50-85% of fantasy leagues.
