Carolina Panthers vs Kansas City Chiefs
- Jonathan Stewart looked good on the ground, picking up two touchdowns with 26 yards on two carries. Despite his positive performance, he should still be avoided given the fact that he has only played 15 games in the past two seasons.
- Kelvin Benjamin ended his night with two receptions for 41 yards. He looks to be the number one receiver on this team for Cam Newton, and should be drafted everywhere. Benjamin is in the best situation for him to succeed, with virtually no competition around him and a low enough ADP to minimize the risk.
- Travis Kelce had another monster day, grabbing a 43 yard catch for a touchdown. Kelce has had two impressive performances, but with Anthony Fasano being listed as the starter, Kelce’s performance is irrelevant for now.
- Dwayne Bowe was impressive last night following a string of reports from camp stating that he is in the best shape of his life. He ended his night with six targets, grabbing five for 62 yards. Bowe could be a nice sleeper pick up given the fact that defenses will be preparing for Jamaal Charles.
