Summary

Ancient Jerricho Cotchery (he'll be 32 when regular season starts) is currently on top of the Panthers' depth chart at wide receiver. Cotchery did grab a career-high 10 TDs for Pittsburgh last season (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 11th 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 23)

Panthers | Jerricho Cotchery expected to start (Sat Jul 19, 10:46 PM) - Carolina Panthers WR Jerricho Cotchery is expected to be one of the starting wide receivers this upcoming season.

Our View: Cotchery is a savvy veteran who can sharply run routes and get open. We're not expecting the Panthers passing game to be that productive, so Cotchery's fantasy value is low. Take a look at him as a reserve receiver (end of the bench) or waiver-wire option in deep PPR leagues. His current ADP is WR65 (14.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Panthers | Not concerned with perception of wide receiver group (Fri Jul 11, 01:31 PM) - Carolina Panthers WR Jerricho Cotchery said the wide receivers on the team are not concerned with what the perception is of that group. They are all about working hard and competing.

Our View: It's good that they don't concern themselves with what is being said in the media because it's not good. Carolina has arguably the worst group of wide receivers in the league. They'll be relying heavily on Cotchery and rookie Kelvin Benjamin in 2014.

Panthers | Jerricho Cotchery will workout with Cam Newton (Fri Jul 11, 01:21 PM) - Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers WR Jerricho Cotchery said he will participate in a throwing session with QB Cam Newton next week to help get on the same page before the start of training camp.

Our View: Cotchery is a seasoned veteran, and he knows the Panthers need to build chemistry between Newton and the entirely new group of wideouts. We'll see Cotchery compete for a starting job (and likely win) opposite rookie Kelvin Benjamin.
