Week 15: vs Green Bay Packers

All QB vs GB

FBG says: Great matchup. Cam Newton continues to put up lackluster yards through the air as he is leading this offense with his rushing ability instead of passing. In the second half of Newton's season since Week 9, he has passed for over 200 yards only one time while completing just 54% of his passes. However, Newton has done a much better job at taking care of the football as he boasts a 7-to-1 touchdown to interception ratio compared to a 10-to-11 ratio through his first eight games. The combination of Devin Funchess and Christian McCaffrey have really been the only options for Newton to throw to. Funchess continues to lead the team in targets since the departure of Kelvin Benjamin and is averaging 81 receiving yards per game with four touchdowns over his last five games with a touchdown in back to back weeks now. McCaffrey, however, has been wildly inconsistent as he is used only on short screens that blow up more often than not. Greg Olsen played 92% of the snaps last week against the Vikings, but he was targeted only one time and is tough to trust in this offense based on that usage last week--especially considering the fact that the Packers have given up the second-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends this year. The Packers secondary continued to struggle last week as they have now allowed nine passing touchdowns over their last three games, fueling a league-leading 26.3 fantasy points per game allowed to quarterbacks over that span. Green Bay was the first team to allow a Browns quarterback to pass for three touchdowns this season. While they have racked up five interceptions in their last four games, this secondary has been routinely beaten by opposing offenses. Morgan Burnett will be asked to continue filling in at cornerback, especially now that Davon House is sidelined for the next 1-2 games with a back injury. Josh Hawkins should see an expanded role here, but he has not seen the field very often this season and may be tasked with covering Devin Funchess for a good bit of the game this week. Overall, this is a terrific spot for the Panthers passing offense to get back on track.
