Sam Darnold informed that the Panther could add a QB

Sam Darnold was informed by Scott Fitterer, the GM of the Panthers, that the team could add a quarterback, according to Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact

Darnold is currently the top-listed quarterback on the depth chart, but the team has been rumored to be interested in adding a quarterback all offseason. What the team does at quarterback will be worth monitoring during the draft.

Kenny Pickett on Panthers' radar, could move on from Sam Darnold

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS, sports, QB Kenny Pickety has impressed a lot of people in the Panthers building. “I don’t think he makes it past the Panthers” said a scout who talked to La Canfora. Not good for the QBs currently on the Panther depth chart.

Fantasy Impact

This spells bad news for Darnold, as he struggled in his time with Carolina, seemingly enough for them to seek other solutions at the quarterback position. Darnold is owed over $18M as a result of his player option being picked up. Darnold will be someone who can be dropped in your leagues, if you haven’t already. Same goes for Cam Newton.

Sam Darnold set to start Week 17

Panthers QB Sam Darnold is expected to start for Carolina in Week 17 when they take on the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Even with this news, Darnold can't be trusted in fantasy due to head coach Matt Rhule using a quarterback committee of sorts with Darnold and teammate Cam Newton. With two quarterback splitting snaps, Darnold and Newton should be far away from starting lineups.

Fantasy Impact

Coach Matt Rhule says Darnold will play at some point over the season's final three weeks. However, Cam Newton has been named the team's starter for Week 16 against the Bucs. Carolina's QB situation is one to avoid for fantasy purposes.

Panthers QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) has been designated to return from IR.

Fantasy Impact

Darnold will practice on Wednesday. It's too early to tell whether or not he would be able to play in Week 15 against the Bills. It's also unclear if Darnold will be given the starting job upon being activated. Neither Cam Newton nor P.J. Walker has seized the job during his absence. It's a situation to monitor throughout the week. The Bills are a tough Week 15 matchup, though.
