News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 9): Gabbert is out with a dislocated shoulder right now, but the team did not put him on injured reserve and he has experience in Bruce Arians offense. It might be a month or more until Gabbert comes back, but if Jameis Winston doesn't get this going soon, Gabbert will be in line for a decent starting job and value in superflex/2QB leagues.

General News (Wed Sep 11): is out for this week's game.

General News (Tue Sep 10): did not practice on Tuesday.

All QB vs CAR

FBG says: Tough matchup. Bruce Arians' track record in the passing game is top-notch, and his system maximized some ho-hum quarterbacking in Arizona. But even he may not be up to the task of getting Jameis Winston off the ground. Winston opened the year as erratic as ever, if not more so, throwing three interceptions - two returned for touchdowns - with two more easy ones dropped. It was ironic that it came against a 49ers defense that registered an all-time low two interceptions through all of last season. At this point, Winston simply can't be trusted to orchestrate a successful offense. He makes too many poor decisions with the ball, and he lacks the instinct and touch to make those low-percentage throws work. Thanks to his scattershot arm, big-play receivers Mike Evans and Chris Godwin made little impact in Week 1, catching just 5 of their 11 targets for 81 yards. At least Godwin was able to make a nice 28-yard play and find the end zone. It's worth noting that when they faced this Panthers secondary late last season, Evans put up a nightmare day (1 catch on 10 targets), while Godwin feasted across the field (5 for 101 and a touchdown). Explosive tight end O.J. Howard had a rough opener, with a fumble and a drop that became an interception. Backup Cameron Brate remained a Winston favorite near the goal line - he caught two short touchdowns, both of which were negated by penalties. As always, there's difference-making potential in this unit, and on sturdy weeks the upside is massive. But Winston's play is far too volatile to trust at the moment. Week to week, he looks like a stronger bet to implode than to reach his upside. The Carolina pass defense is an inconsistent group but reached the high end of its capabilities in Week 1. Jared Goff and the Rams' potent pass game never got off the ground, producing just 4.8 yards per attempt with a single touchdown. Much of the credit belongs to cornerbacks James Bradberry and Donte Jackson, who teamed to lock down the deep-ball game on the outside - the Rams managed only 3 pass plays of 15 yards or more. Brandin Cooks caught only two of his six targets, while Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp combined to produce just 116 yards over their 15 receptions (a 7.7 average). There were also contributions from the defense's new starters. Free safety Tre Boston brings a stabilizing presence against the pass, while new pass rushers Gerald McCoy and Brian Burns enjoyed strong Panthers debuts. This unit likely won't play to these heights every week, but Week 1's trends were encouraging all-around.
