  Panthers | Taylor Heinicke to get a look at QB2?    Sat Aug 17, 02:13 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Taylor Heinicke could be thrust back into the mix for the No. 2 quarterback job after completing 8 of 12 passes for 78 yards and a touchdown against the Buffalo Bills on Friday, Aug. 16, in the opinion of ESPN's David Newton.

Footballguys view: The Panthers other backup quarterbacks, Kyle Allen and Will Grier, have had struggles this training camp and preseason. Heinicke is also familiar with offensive coordinator Norv Turner and seems to have a leg up on the competition.

  Panthers | Taylor Heinicke leading QB2 race    Wed Jul 10, 01:56 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Taylor Heinicke was more impressive than QBs Will Grier and Kyle Allen this spring, according to the Charlotte Observer's Brendan Marks, who predicts Heinicke will open the 2019 season as the backup with Grier in the third spot. Marks believes the team will try to stash Allen on the practice squad, but other teams could be interested.

Footballguys view: Heinicke has always had talent as a passer, mostly his touch and accuracy on short-to-intermediate throws. We don't think he holds off the rookie Grier for that long, and we'll be watching both closely in the preseason. Grier is a player we have a lot of appreciation for in dynasty formats. Heinicke has backup written all over him, while Grier has the upside to one day be a starter (and maybe a good one) in the future.
