With Drew Brees and Alvin Kamara healthy scratches tor est for the playoffs, the Panthers did the job. Carolina will look to bounce back in 2019 following one of their worst seasons in the Ron Rivera era.

The Carolina Panthers D/ST surrendered 393 total yards and 26 points in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Browns.

Fantasy Impact

While the Panthers sacked Baker Mayfield once and recovered a pair of Brown fumbles, their fantasy day overall was a downer. After Mayfield threw three picks last week, he was perfect in Week 14. The Panthers are not a recommended play in Week 15 versus the Saints.
