Kelvin Benjamin burst onto the scene for the Carolina Panthers and immediately became a go-to option for quarterback Cam Newton. What many may have overlooked when it came to his 73 receptions, 1,008 yards and nine scores in 2014, was his massive number of targets.

According to Pro Football Focus, Benjamin was the most targeted rookie in the NFL since the 2007 season.

That's a whole lot of targets for any receiver, not just a rookie. While Benjamin may see a similar number in 2015, fans are hoping that it results in even more catches for the second-year receiver.
