  Panthers | Devin Funchess blanked in loss    Sun Dec 9, 04:52 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess went without a catch on three targets in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Funchess had a target that could have been a score, but he wasn't aware the ball was thrown to him. He has slid from #1 to #3 receiver for the Panthers, and can be dropped heading into a matchup against New Orleans.

  Panthers | Ian Thomas steps up in road loss    Sun Dec 9, 04:44 PM

Carolina Panthers TE Ian Thomas posted a game highs with nine receptions and 11 targets in the Week 14 road loss against the Cleveland Browns, finishing with 77 yards.

Footballguys view: Cam Newton's compromised shoulder made it more difficult for him to throw downfield, so just like after Greg Olsen left last week, the rookie tight end was a frequent target. He'll be worth a playoff streamer start against the Saints defense that gave up two scores to Cameron Brate today.

  Panthers | Curtis Samuel posts 80 yards    Sun Dec 9, 04:41 PM

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 16 times for 63 yards and two touchdowns in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns and he added six catches for 38 yards on seven targets.

Footballguys view: McCaffrey didn't make any big plays to influence the outcome of the game, but he finished two drives and had a third score called back by penalty. He faces a tough matchup against the Saints next week.

  Panthers | Cam Newton does little in road loss    Sun Dec 9, 04:22 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 26-of-42 passes for 265 yards, no touchdowns and an interception with 23 rushing yards in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Christian McCaffrey got the offensive touchdowns on the ground, and Newton wasn't able to consistently push the ball down the field. He didn't help fantasy teams and hasn't helped the Panthers during their five-game losing streak. He's not an automatic start and maybe not a QB1 against the Saints on Monday.

  Panthers | Cam Newton not on injury report    Fri Dec 7, 01:13 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) participated fully in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and does not appear on the team's Week 14 injury report.

Footballguys view: While Newton won't be on the injury report it appeared that the injury affected his downfield accuracy last week. He's still a boom/bust QB1 with a big boom because of the matchup and his running ability. This is about as reassuring of news as we could have hoped for after more cautionary items earlier this week.

Carolina Panthers PK Graham Gano (knee) is unlikely to suit up in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns, according to a source. While the team signed Chandler Catanzaro on Friday, Dec. 7, Gano's injury is not expected to be a long-term issue.

  Panthers | Chandler Catanzaro signs with CAR    Fri Dec 7, 11:05 AM

Free-agent PK Chandler Catanzaro (Buccaneers) signed an undisclosed deal with the Carolina Panthers Friday, Dec. 7. OG Amini Silatolu (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: It looks like Graham Gano will be out this week. He has been a disappointment for fantasy and hopefully was no longer in your lineup anyway.

  Panthers | No practice throws for Cam Newton    Thu Dec 6, 12:19 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) did not throw in practice Thursday, Dec. 6, for the second straight day but took part in team drills during the early potion of practice.

Footballguys view: Newton's going to play this weekend, but he didn't look like himself last week, and his injury could affect his throws and ability to take contact as a runner. He's not a strong QB1 this week at Cleveland.

  Panthers | Greg Olsen suffers torn plantar fascia    Mon Dec 3, 01:41 PM

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) will miss the remainder of the season after being diagnosed with a ruptured plantar fascia Monday, Dec. 3.

Footballguys view: Olsen has been bothered by foot problems almost all season long. He's done for the year now and the Panthers turn to rookie Ian Thomas to take over at tight end. Thomas is a TE2 with upside for Fantasy GMs in need of help at the position.

Carolina Panthers TE Ian Thomas registered five catches for 46 yards on five targets in Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore racked up four receptions for 44 yards on eight targets in Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he also ran for 21 yards.

Footballguys view: Moore was a disappointment considering his production coming into this one, but he still did enough and got enough touches to remain in consideration as a WR3/Flex against the Browns next week.

  Panthers | Curtis Samuel targeted 11 times    Sun Dec 2, 04:29 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel registered six receptions for 88 yards on 11 targets in Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 10 times for 106 yards in Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added nine receptions for 55 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) suffered a foot injury during the Week 13 game and will not return.

Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess (back) is listed as questionable for the Week 13 game, but head coach Ron Rivera said Funchess probably would have been listed as probable if that was still an option.

Footballguys view: Funchess should be out there for the Panthers this week. With the emergence of D.J. Moore, Funchess should only be considered a WR5/deep flex play in Week 13.
