Carolina Panthers

NFC South

Fantasy Impact: Kuechly, who was under contract for two more years with Carolina, has announced his retirement. This comes as a shock as Kuechly was playing at a high-level, and just recorded his eighth consecutive 100-plus tackle season. The All-Pro linebacker played all eight seasons in Carolina, totaling 1.092 tackles, 12.5 sacks, 18 interceptions and seven forced fumbles across 118 career games.

The Carolina Panthers will reportedly hire former Baylor and Temple coach Matt Rhule, according to Ian Rapoport. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Rhule spent his most recent three seasons with Baylor, leading the team to an 11-3 record, a No. 7 ranking, and a Sugar Bowl appearance. He’ll have a lot of work to do with Carolina, particularly as the quarterback situation is in flux heading into 2020.

Eric Reid racked up 11 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday’s 42-10 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Reid finished the 2019 season second on the team in total tackles with 129. He also racked on four sacks and one forced fumble. Reid should be viewed as a high-end S2 in IDP leagues.

Panthers K Joey Slye was successful on his lone field goal attempt and on his lone extra-point attempt in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Slye opened the year as one of fantasy's best kickers but faltered in the second half. There is no guarantee that Slye returns for 2020.

Panthers QB Kyle Allen completed 25-of-41 passes for 295 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: After Will Grier exited the game with a foot injury following one completion to his team and one completion to the opponent -- a pick obviously -- Allen came in and threw for 295 scoreless yards. While he was able to move the offense, Allen seems to be a quarterback who must play with a lead as he makes poor decisions trailing by multiple scores. The Panthers are surely in the quarterback market this offseason barring an unexpected retaining of Cam Newton.

Panthers WR Brandon Zylstra caught 6-of-8 targets for 96 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Zylstra led the Panthers in receiving in Week 17. A standout formerly of the CFL, he will look to carve out a role on the Panthers for 2020 if he begins to turn the corner this offseason.

Category: Game Recaps


Panthers WR Chris Hogan caught 2-of-4 targets for 14 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Hogan had a season to forget in his first year with the Panthers, posing career-low numbers across the board in seven games played. He will look to bounce back in 2020 but will likely be far off the fantasy radar barring a return to the Patriots as he is a free agent this offseason.

Panthers WR Jarius Wright caught 2-of-5 targets for 10 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Evan with D.J. Moore sidelined, Wright could not get going with his expanded role, likely because of poor quarterback play. He will once again be just a guy in 2020 whether he stays in Carolina or winds up elsewhere.

Panthers TE Ian Thomas caught 1-of-5 targets for 12 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Without Cam Newton for the bulk of the year, the Panthers' tight end position was an overall dud in fantasy. Assuming Greg Olsen and the Panthers part ways, Thomas would be in line to enter 2020 as the team's TE1. Buy him low in dynasty.

Category: Game Recaps


Panthers TE Greg Olsen caught 2-of-6 targets for 12 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Speaking to the press following the game, Olsen, who did not play ion the second half, hinted that Week 17 could have been his final game in Carolina and the final game of his career. If Olsen indeed moves on, Ian Thomas would be in line to open 2020 as the Panthers TE1.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel caught 2-of-4 targets for 13 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Another week with a similar recap -- if Samuel does not score, he does not return fantasy value. Failing to total 100 yards in a single game in 2019, Samuel's most-productive outing yardage-wise occurred back in Week 2 when he totaled 93 yards. He had fewer than 74 total yards in every other game. Samuel will look to bounce back in 2020 but the Panthers need to find a quarterback if that's going to happen.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed nine times for 26 yards and a touchdown while catching 7-of-10 targets for 72 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: McCaffrey joined Roger Craig and Marshall Faulk as the third player in NFL history to post 1,000 rushing and 1,000 yards receiving. The lone bright spot on the Panthers, McCaffrey will look to follow up his historic 2019 season with another fantasy-friendly campaign in 2020. CMC should open 2020 as the No. 1 overall player in fantasy football.

Panthers QB Will Grier completed 1-of-8 passes for four yards and an interception in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Grier only completed 1-of-8 passes before leaving the game with his foot injury. It is safe to say that he is not the future of the Carolina quarterback position despite his limited resume, which is atrocious. Look for the Panthers to either draft a quarterback or bring one in via free agency this offseason while moving on from Cam Newton if the price is right.

D.J. Moore (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints. (Source: Max Henson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Moore did not practice this week and has been ruled out for Week 17. He had a breakout campaign in 2019, logging 87 receptions for 1,175 yards and four touchdowns on 135 targets. With Moore ruled out, look for Curtis Samuel and Jarius Wright to lead the Panther receiver corps in Week 17.

Ross Cockrell racked up 10 solo tackles in Sunday’s 38-6 loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Cockrell has 56 tackles and two interceptions through Week 16 of the 2019 season. He should be left on waivers in most leagues.

Carolina Panthers star linebacker Shaq Thompson has been ruled out for Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Thompson being ruled out is yet another reason to be bullish on Marlon Mack this week. The Panthers are already allowing a league high 5.31 yards per carry against, and will now be without one of the top talents on their defensive front. Mack is firmly in the RB1 conversation for fantasy championship week.

Greg Joseph signed by Titans

Fantasy Impact: Ryan Succop has struggled since returning from injury, and the Titans will look to another kicker yet again this season. Joseph most recently played with the Browns in 2018 when he made 17 of his 20 attempts, though he did miss four of the 29 extra points he attempted.

Panthers RB Reggie Bonnafon rushed one time for six yards in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Bonnafon had just one touch, which shows he is just Christian McCaffrey's handcuff. He has no fantasy value in Week 15.

Tiffany Blackmon of NFL Network reports Cam Newton is planning to undergo foot surgery. (Source: Tiffany Blackmon on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Newton has tried to rehab the injury without surgery but things aren't getting any better. This procedure will add some time to his recovery process but its necessary at this point. The Panthers have a decision to make this off-season in regards to whether or not Newton is their long term answer at quarterback.

Mario Addison ended Sunday’s loss to Washington with seven total tackles (four solo) and 1.5 sacks.

Fantasy Impact: Addison has 27 tackles, 9.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles through Week 13. Since he leads all Panthers in the sack stat line, he should be started in deeper IDP leagues.
