Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Carolina's pass defense has been abysmal this season, but the Panthers do put pressure on QBs and Seattle's offensive line certainly won't be able to slow them down so Russell is just a borderline QB1 this week. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Panthers are 12th against fantasy quarterbacks this year, Wilson should be a low QB1 at home that rebounds from a bad road performance in Tampa Bay.The Buccaneers D has improved in the last 3 weeks, but Rivers is still a borderline QB1 option at home.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
The Panthers have been a little better defensively but Wilson is at home and you probably can't bench himRivers seems to be matchup proof and he's at home against a beatable Tampa secondary. It's concerning that they've been great in two straight, however
