  Panthers | Week 2 Inactives    Sun Sep 20, 11:52 AM

The Carolina Panthers have declared RB Brandon Wegher, RB Cameron Artis-Payne, OT Daryl Williams, LB Luke Kuechly, TE Richie Brockel, DL Star Lotulelei inactive for Week 2.

Footballguys view: Artis-Payne was thought of as the handcuff to Jonathan Stewart, but he can be dropped in all but the most shallow leagues. Kevin Norwood is up at wide receiver this week.

  Panthers | One Panther probable, two out    Fri Sep 11, 01:04 PM

Carolina Panthers C Ryan Kalil (knee) is listed as probable for Week 1. DT Star Lotulelei (foot) and FB/TE Richie Brockel (shoulder) are out for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Lotulelei's absence will help the Jaguars running game and TJ Yeldon, but this still figures to be a defensive-minded low-scoring game.

  Panthers | Richie Brockel sprains shoulder    Sat Aug 22, 09:25 PM

Carolina Panthers TE Richie Brockel (shoulder) left the preseason game against the Miami Dolphins Saturday, Aug. 22, with a left shoulder sprain and will not return.

Footballguys view: Brockel isn't fantasy relevant, as Greg Olsen is the guy to own here. Olsen is a sweet TE1, especially as the receiving options are few and far between. If you wait until Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham are off the board while beefing up other areas, grabbing Olsen in the fifth is great value.

The Carolina Panthers have declared OG Andrew Norwell, LB D.J. Smith, RB DeAngelo Williams, QB Joe Webb, RB Jonathan Stewart, TE Richie Brockel, SS Tre Boston inactive for Week 5.

Footballguys view: Darrin Reaves, Chris Ogbonnaya, and Fozzy Whittaker will each get chances to get hot and earn extended playing time with the Panthers' top three running backs out this week.

  Panthers | Might keep four tight ends    Fri Aug 29, 11:38 PM

The Carolina Panthers are deep at tight end, with starting TE Greg Olsen and reserve TEs Ed Dickson, Brandon D. Williams and Richie Brockel projected to make the final 53-man roster. In fact, if they keep four tight eneds, it would likely mean they keep eight offensive linemen instead of nine.
