Week 4: vs Carolina Panthers
All TE vs CAR
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Jameis Winston (17/36 for 261 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown at Houston) discovered the joys of throwing to a now-healthy Mike Evans last weekend, targeting him an astounding 17 times for 7/101/0 receiving - Evans owners hope the high volume of throws continues going forwards. Louis Murphy (six for 3/61/0) and Vincent Jackson (four for 2/40/0) also got a little attention from Winston, but it's clear that Evans is the apple of Winston's eye entering Week Four. Running back Charles Sims was also in the mix last week with two targets for 2/41/1 receiving.
The Panthers' starting DE Charles X. Johnson will not be able to play in Week Four (or many weeks after - he was sent to IR/Designated to Return on Tuesday) against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because of a hamstring injury, which may lessen the Panthers' pass rush capabilities this weekend. The team did trade for Jared Allen this week, but he'll be learning the Panthers' system on the fly once he arrives from Chicago. To date, the Panthers have recorded seven sacks (tied for eighth in the NFL) while averaging 239.3 net passing yards allowed per game (14th in the NFL). Carolina has twice as many interceptions (four) as passing scores allowed (two) over the first three games.
This is a tough test for Jameis Winston and company.
