After Cam Newton was declared out for the remaining two games of the 2018 season, Taylor Heinicke received his first career start in Week 17 against the Saints where he showed toughness, ability and grit en route to a 274-yard losing effort. He suffered an elbow injury in the second quarter, but returned a few plays later and failed to return to his first half form. He will battle rookie third-round pick, Will Grier for the backup role in Carolina. (May 23)

Cam Newton Will Still Be a Top Fantasy Football Quarterback in 2019

Panthers | Taylor Heinicke leading QB2 race (Wed Jul 10, 01:56 AM) - Carolina Panthers QB Taylor Heinicke was more impressive than QBs Will Grier and Kyle Allen this spring, according to the Charlotte Observer's Brendan Marks, who predicts Heinicke will open the 2019 season as the backup with Grier in the third spot. Marks believes the team will try to stash Allen on the practice squad, but other teams could be interested.

Our View: Heinicke has always had talent as a passer, mostly his touch and accuracy on short-to-intermediate throws. We don't think he holds off the rookie Grier for that long, and we'll be watching both closely in the preseason. Grier is a player we have a lot of appreciation for in dynasty formats. Heinicke has backup written all over him, while Grier has the upside to one day be a starter (and maybe a good one) in the future.
