Week 3: vs Minnesota Vikings

All TE vs MIN

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Cam Newton got his team back on track against the 49ers in Week Two, with 24/40 for 353 yards passing, four TDs and one interception thrown (and 6/37/0 rushing). With so many TDs in the air, three of the usual suspects pulled in TDs - Greg Olsen led the team in receiving with eight targets for 5/122/1 receiving, while Kelvin Benjamin (nine for 7/108/2) also went over 100 yards receiving during the contest. Devin Funchess (four targets for 2/19/1) also scored, while Ted Ginn Jr. hit a long reception of 52 yards on his way to four targets for 2/51/0 receiving during the contest. It's all good for the Panthers heading into this home game vs. Minnesota. The Vikings come into this game during another juggling act on offense - this time, it's Adrian Peterson out with a knee injury (torn meniscus) - so expect the Vikings to lean on their defense as they sort out their attack. The Vikings' secondary has averaged 216.0 net passing yards per game this year, with three passing scores given out vs. two interceptions generated , with seven sacks to their credit (tied for fourth-most sacks in the NFL). Over the first two weeks of the season, Minnesota has averaged 22.5 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (11th-most in the NFL); and 17.8 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (seventh-least); with 4.9 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (11th-least). Aaron Rodgers ran in a TD against the Vikings last week - and Cam Newton is always a threat to do that, as well. This looks like a tough matchup for Newton and the receivers.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 2 vs SF (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

The target of a pass that resulted in Cam Newton's lone interception, Ed Dickson had settled down between the hashes. An excellent play by Navorro Bowman to break on the ball sent it flying into the air and it landed perfectly in the hands of a 49ers player.

2016 Week 1 vs DEN (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Perhaps in a nod to the Broncos' fearsome defense, Ed Dickson was utilized mainly as an in-line blocker and rarely asked to go out in pass patterns. Understandably, Greg Olsen was the primary target from Cam Newton, essentially eliminating any chance of a significant role for Dickson.
