According to a camp report rookie Rashaan Gaulden seen time with the first defensive unit in the first practice of Carolina Panthers training camp over Da’Norris Searcy. In the report, it was James Bradberry, rookie Donte Jackson, rookie Rashaan Gaulden, and Mike Adams to first be deployed. Searcy was then later rotated in with that unit. (charlotteobserver.com)
This could be a significant indication that Carolina will be giving the rookie Rashaan Gaulden every opportunity to earn the starting safety role opposite of Mike Adams. Fantasy Football owners who play in IDP leagues will want to keep tabs on the situation as it develops. Both Gaulden and Searcy's IDP value will be determined by the first week of 2018 season over the next few weeks of camp. Whoever wins the starting job as the other safety with Adams should have the ability to become IDP relevant.
