Bryce Young Week 1 Outlook - Panthers at Falcons

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Sun, Sep 10th 2023, 12:05pm EDT

Despite being the No. 1 overall pick in this year's NFL Draft, Young has largely been an afterthought in the fantasy football world other than in dynasty rookie drafts. It might have been different if Young had looked splendid during the preseason, but that wasn't the case. He completed 14-of-24 passes (58.3%) for 129 yards (5.4 YPA), with one touchdown and no interceptions. Young draws a somewhat favorable matchup against an Atlanta pass defense that ranked 31st in DVOA last season and gave up the 12th-most fantasy points to opposing QBs, but the rookie is not an appealing 1QB option in a matchup with a Vegas total of only 39.5 points. Young is playable in superflex, however, even though the Carolina pass catchers don't exactly quicken the pulses of fantasy managers.
