Summary

Ancient Jerricho Cotchery (he'll be 33 when regular season starts) is currently one of the starters for Carolina entering the 2015 spring OTAs/minicamps. Cotchery managed only one TD for the Panthers last season (78 targets for 48/580/1) after he grabbed a career-high 10 TDs for Pittsburgh during 2013 (76 targets for 46/602/10) but he had a grand total of two receiving TDs during his prior two seasons with the Steelers. Entering his 12th NFL season, Cotchery has amassed more than 1,000 yards receiving exactly once (way back in 2007 when he handled 127 targets for 82/1,130/2 receiving), and his career high in receptions is 82, achieved twice (during 2006 and 2007). As you can see, Cotchery's best seasons are far behind him, for the most part. (May 15)

Panthers | Jerricho Cotchery injures groin (Fri Aug 28, 09:23 PM) - Carolina Panthers WR Jerricho Cotchery (groin) exited a preseason game against the New England Patriots Friday, Aug. 28, with a groin injury and will not return.

Our View: Just what the panthers needed, another injury to a wide receiver. This isn't great news for Cam Newton's production, but it continues our belief that Greg Olsen will be a beast this season and a lock-down TE1. For what it's worth, Cotchery is a shaky WR7.

Panthers | WR depth shaken up in Carolina (Wed Aug 19, 07:00 PM) - Carolina Panthers WRs Corey Brown and Jerricho Cotchery are currently the top two wide receivers on Carolina's depth chart, according to Steve Reed of the Associated Press.

Our View: Brown is a speedy guy who can get by defenders. Cotchery is the seasoned veteran who can be reliable underneath. We're not excited by either player's fantasy prospects. Without Kelvin Benjamin, we're avoiding players in the Panthers passing game except TE Greg Olsen.
