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.

Bridgewater has certainly looked the part of a NFL starting QB, but this offense hasn't been high-powered enough for that to amount to more than a QB22 rank for fantasy football. If you can, I'd avoid playing Bridgewater this week against a stout Chargers defense.
