Baker Mayfield appears to be winning the Panthers' QB battle against Sam Darnold, though HC Matt Rhule states no official announcement will be made for a couple of weeks. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Most sources believe the reluctance to give the job to Mayfield officially is due to garnering trade interest for Darnold. The 27-year-old QB started a little slowly, but he has impressed coaches through the first two weeks of training camp. He is currently being drafted as the 25th quarterback off the board, though he is an intriguing QB2 option with the weapons he has around him in Carolina.
