I don't think we should be upset about the state of the Panthers offense after they've averaged 23.5 points per game against the Raiders and Bucs, but we can't be excited, either. Losing Christian McCaffrey will change the look of this offense in more ways than most know. On top of that, they're playing a Chargers defense that's held Patrick Mahomes and Joe Burrow to just 36 offensive points in the two games combined. Mahomes did break the 300-yard barrier, but it took him 47 attempts to get there while averaging a measly 6.4 yards per attempt. The 5.96 yards per attempt the Chargers have allowed ranks as the second-lowest mark to only the 49ers. They allowed a pedestrian 7.30 yards per attempt last year, but the addition of Chris Harris Jr. has proven to be a major one. It's tough to see how the Panthers even get to their team-implied total of 18.8 points, so feel free to simply avoid Bridgewater in this matchup.Week 2 was more of the timeshare we envisioned before the season started, as Carson totaled 20 touches to Hyde's seven touches. When the ball is in his hands, Carson looks good... refreshed. They're working to get him in space in the passing game, too, which certainly raises his floor. The Cowboys have faced a league-high 65 rushing attempts through two weeks, but they haven't allowed a whole lot of efficiency, as they've allowed just 3.40 yards per carry and 1.30 PPR points per target. That amounts to just 0.61 PPR points per opportunity to this point, which is the third-lowest mark in the league. While the Cowboys were a team to run the ball against last year, things change under a new coordinator, and Mike Nolan has apparently put more emphasis on stopping the run. Carson should still be started as a high-end RB2, but just know that running backs haven't been particularly efficient against them to this point. Hyde isn't someone who can be trusted outside of maybe a game the Seahawks are expected to win by double digits.

 Carson got back to his usual workload on the ground last week against New England and he should see a substantial amount of work in this one too. With this offense being extremely efficient, Carson's an every week must-start as a low-end RB1.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 The Cowboys are 15th against fantasy running backs, Carson should be able to put up RB2 numbers for a team that is on fire on offense early in the season.
