Summary

Although Charles Johnson disappointed as a run defender last season, he more than made up for it with his fearsome pass rushing skills. Down the stretch especially, Johnson was unblockable and from Week 11-17 totalled 11 tackles, five sacks and four quarterback hits. Still a lynchpin up front for the Panthers - and even more so now that Greg Hardy has left the building - Johnson is as solid a player as you can hope to get from an IDP perspective for production. If Carolina can further bolster their pass rush via the NFL Draft, Johnson could return to elite DE territory as in 2013. (April 27)

Panthers | Two defensive starters not playing (Fri Aug 28, 06:16 PM) - Carolina Panthers DE Charles Johnson (calf) and DT Kawann Short (back) will not play in the third preseason game Friday, Aug. 29.

Our View: Carolina is a solid defense, and should be a borderline No. 1 team defense in fantasy. These are just maintenance rests and shouldn't impact whether you grab this defense or not.
