Week 12: at New York Jets

All RB vs NYJ

FBG says: Neutral matchup. This running game is finally taking flight. The Panthers' committee of explosive runners offers differing flavors, but has produced 495 yards over the past 2 weeks after an exceptionally up-and-down start. They're getting production from Cam Newton (90.5 yards per game over that span) and Jonathan Stewart (110 in Week 11), but also from reserve Cameron Artis-Payne (68 and 1 touchdown against the Dolphins), who spells Stewart on running downs. The one least often invited to the ground game party has Christian McCaffrey, but that could be about to change. McCaffrey has averaged 4.45 yards per rush over this 2-week span, up a mile from his early-season mark of 2.39. He would've gathered more than five rushes last week had the game not blown wide open, and he could be woven in further going forward; there's been nowhere to go but up, at least in terms of rushing. The Jets field a generally weak run defense. They've posted 4 strong performances on the year, holding LeSean McCoy, Doug Martin, and Jay Ajayi (2 games) to averages of 2.17 yards per carry. But they've also been shredded by McCoy and a handful of other backs, highlighting their extreme inconsistency. The talented front line has underachieved at times, and linebackers Darron Lee and Demario Davis seem to alternate strong games with particularly bad ones. This isn't among the league's most targetable units, but it's one we can generally expect solid efficiency against - as well as the positive script that often comes from Jets games.

2017 Week 4 vs NE (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 34 / 1 rec)

Rarely used so far this season, Fozzy Whittaker made his presence felt with a touchdown reception on a well-designed screen pass. The Panthers used the motion of Christian McCaffrey from left to right to distract the Patriots defenders, allowing Whittaker to sneak into the left flat. There were no Patriots in the area, giving Cam Newton an easy throw to Whittaker, who had nothing but green grass ahead of him.
