Corey Brown - WRPosted 11/20/15 4:39pm ET
Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown (shoulder) did not practice Friday, Nov. 20, and is doubtful for Week 11 against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Brown's injury has opened the door for second-round rookie Devin Funchess, who is in line to make his first NFL start Sunday. Funchess has recorded five of his seven catches and 112 of his 202 receiving yards in the last two weeks as he gained more trust in the offense.
Corey Brown - WRPosted 11/19/15 3:28pm ET
Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 19.
Huddle Up: Fantasy GMs always need to be wary of mid-week injuries, and that aside, Brown has been no great shakes in any case, garnering no more than five targets or three receptions in any game this season.
Devin Funchess - WRPosted 11/18/15 5:21pm ET
Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess' role in the offense has been slowly growing, and he caught three passes for a season-high 71 yards and a touchdown in Week 9. He has become the team's receiver of choice in jumbo packages, playing 12 of the 13 snaps with just one wide receiver on the field in Week 10.
Huddle Up: It's taken half a season for Funchess to carve out a role, but 15 of the rookie's 27 targets and nine of his 12 receptions have come since Week 6. Definitely a player to grab now in deeper leagues.
Cam Newton - QBPosted 11/17/15 11:28pm ET
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton has six games this year with at least one passing and one rushing touchdown. No other quarterback in the league has more than two such games this season.
Huddle Up: It all has Newton back among the top-five fantasy QBs following his injury-addled 17th-place finish.
Jonathan Stewart - RBPosted 11/12/15 6:43pm ET
Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 12.
Huddle Up: Stewart hasn't been able to go full this week, but there's been nothing to indicate that he's in any danger of missing Sunday's game in Tennessee.
Cam Newton - QBPosted 11/3/15 1:05am ET
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 16-of-35 passes for 248 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while rushing for 41 yards on 10 carries Monday, Nov. 2 in a 29-26 overtime win which upped the Panthers' record to 7-0.
Huddle Up: Newton also lost a fumble, struggled with accuracy and dealt with several drops from his pass-catchers on the wet and soggy night, but he still came through with first multiple-TD-pass game in three weeks and posted his third-highest single-game rushing total of the season.
Cam Newton - QBPosted 10/20/15 10:33pm ET
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton has a 94.1 QBR in the fourth quarter this year, which is second-best in the league, but has a 37.1 QBR in the first three quarters.
Huddle Up: Like they say, it's not how you start, it's how you finish, and Newton is on pace to finish with another top-five fantasy QB season, currently ranking fourth among QBs with 25.28 fantasy points per game.
Luke Kuechly - LBPosted 10/13/15 4:24pm ET
Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly (concussion) has been cleared to practice Tuesday, Oct. 13. Kuechly said this was his first concussion.
Huddle Up: The concussion was definitely a doozy for Kuechly, sidelining the All_Pro LB a month, but the Panthers' Week 5 bye week came at the right time and look for him to return this Sunday in Seattle.
Luke Kuechly - LBPosted 10/2/15 3:31pm ET
Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 2, and has been ruled out for the Week 4 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: It's been quite a struggle for the former Defensive Player of the Year, but sitting out Sunday will give him an extra 2 weeks with the Panthers on bye in Week 5.
Jonathan Stewart - RBPosted 10/2/15 5:01pm ET
Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (leg) is probable for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Stewart caused some alarm by sitting out practices Wednesday and Thursday but count on having him available Sunday against a shaky Bucs' run defense that has surrendered the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing RBs this season.
Luke Kuechly - LBPosted 9/30/15 1:46pm ET
Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly (concussion) wasn't spotted at practice Wednesday, Sept. 30, and the feeling is he could be out until after the Week 5 bye.
Huddle Up: The All-Pro LB is having trouble clearing all the protocol hurdles, and it's sounding like some more rest will be in order to ensure that Kuechly comes back in good shape. The Panthers, meanwhile, have weathered his absence and a win over the Bucs on Sunday would give them a 4-0 record coming off the bye in Week 6.
Greg Olsen - TEPosted 9/27/15 8:21pm ET
Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen had eight catches for a career-high 134 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-22 win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 3.
Huddle Up: The Panthers made good on their promise to get Olsen more involved in the offense. He'll be a Top 5 tight end next week when Carolina travels to Tampa Bay.
Jonathan Stewart - RBPosted 9/27/15 8:21pm ET
Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (leg) left in the second half against the New Orleans Saints in Week 3 and did not return.
Huddle Up: Stewart was banged up coming into the game. The Panthers can't afford to lose him with all of their injuries at the wide receiver position. Rookie Cameron Artis-Payne will see an increased role if Stewart misses time.
Cam Newton - QBPosted 9/25/15 9:38am ET
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton faces the New Orleans Saints at home in Week 3, and in four career home games against the Saints, he has seven touchdowns, including three rushing scores.
Huddle Up: Mesh that trend with Cam's running this season, as well as the team's lack of quality receivers, and it would be surprising if Newton didn't flip into the end zone at least once via the ground this week.
Luke Kuechly - LBPosted 9/25/15 2:17pm ET
Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints, but he will not play, according to a source informed on the situation.
Huddle Up: Carolina's stud middle 'backer will miss a second straight game, leaving 2013 fifth-round pick A.J. Klein to make another start after recording six tackles and a pass defensed last week against the Texans.
Luke Kuechly - LBPosted 9/24/15 12:59pm ET
Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly (concussion) is still not in pads or a helmet at practice Thursday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: Not a good sign for Kuechly, who right now looks to be in danger of missing a second straight game. Let's see if Friday brings better news.
Luke Kuechly - LBPosted 9/19/15 12:36pm ET
Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly (concussion) has been ruled out for the Week 2 game against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Not having Kuechly is obviously a big blow to the Panthers' defense. Ryan Mallett is starting this week for the Texans and his job is much easier without Kuechly in the lineup. The Panthers' defense is still a starting option this week even without Kuechly.
Luke Kuechly - LBPosted 9/18/15 1:48pm ET
Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly (concussion) will have an answer about his Week 2 status Saturday, Sept. 19. Kuechly hasn't seen the independent neurologist Friday, Sept. 18, but he'll need that clearance to play in Week 2, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Huddle Up: Kuechly is officially listed as doubtful after being held out of practice all week, and his IDP-league owners need to have another option at the ready.
Jonathan Stewart - RBPosted 9/17/15 3:32pm ET
Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) returned to practice Thursday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: No worries, just a rest day Wednesday for Stewart, but count on him to be good to go Sunday against the Texans.
Jonathan Stewart - RBPosted 9/16/15 2:13pm ET
Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart has the day off Wednesday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: Stewart appeared to make it through Week 1 OK after logging 22 of the Panthers' 28 RB touches in the win over the Jaguars and is a RB1 consideration against the Texans this week.
Luke Kuechly - LBPosted 9/16/15 6:27pm ET
Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: Nothing unexpected here as Kuechly remains in the concussion protocol, and coach Ron Rivera did say the LB could play in Week 2 without practicing once he's cleared.
Luke Kuechly - LBPosted 9/10/15 1:26pm ET
Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly agreed to a five-year, $62 million contract extension Thursday, Sept. 10, according to a source. The deal would make him the highest-paid inside linebacker in league history.
Huddle Up: AP Defensive Rookie of the Year ... AP Defensive Player of the Year ... Two first-team All-Pro selections ... 502 total tackles ... seven interceptions and 29 passes defensed ... no missed starts. Yeah, we'd say the 2012 first-round pick definitely has earned his raise.
Ted Ginn - WRPosted 9/7/15 11:18pm ET
Carolina Panthers WRs Ted Ginn Jr. and Corey Brown are considered the starting wide receivers at this point, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Huddle Up: This is clear shot across the bow of second-round pick Devin Funchess who easily owns the highest ADP (122) of the bunch, while Ginn and Brown obviously have some value late in drafts.
Cameron Artis-Payne - RBPosted 9/6/15 12:55pm ET
Carolina Panthers RB Cameron Artis-Payne appears to be the main backup to RB Jonathan Stewart this season.
Huddle Up: The fifth-round pick led the Panthers in rushing this preseason with 139 yards and a TD on 30 carries and is pretty much a must-own handcuff for the fantasy owners of the not-so-reliable Jonathan Stewart.
Derek Anderson - QBPosted 9/2/15 1:51pm ET
Carolina Panthers QB Derek Anderson signed a two-year extension Wednesday, Sept. 2.
Huddle Up: As far as backup QBs go, the Panthers are in strong shape with the veteran Anderson, who stepped in for the injured Cam Newton on two occasions last season and guided the Panthers to a pair of wins.
Jarrett Boykin - WRPosted 9/1/15 4:22pm ET
Carolina Panthers WRs Jarrett Boykin and De'Andre Presley were waived Tuesday, Sept. 1.
Huddle Up: Boykin, the former Green Bay wideout, was leading the Panthers in targets (19) and receiving yards (93) this preseason but the Panthers evidently have other plans for the roster spot, even with their WR needs. Boykin could be a candidate to re-join his former team, which also is dealing with a banged-up WR corps.
Kevin Norwood - WRPosted 8/31/15 10:17pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Kevin Norwood was traded to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for a conditional draft pick Monday, Aug. 31.
Huddle Up: The 2014 fourth-round pick was buried on the depth chart in Seattle, but he'll have the chance to compete for immediate PT in Carolina, where No. 1 WR Kelvin Benjamin is out for the season and rookie first-rounder Devin Funchess is dealing with a pesky hamstring issue. Norwood has nine receptions for 102 yards in nine games last season with the Seahawks.
Devin Funchess - WRPosted 8/28/15 7:39pm ET
Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess (hamstring) is working out on the field before the third preseason game Friday, Aug. 28, but he will not be playing in the game.
Huddle Up: It's concerning that Funchess won't be able to play in Carolina's dress rehearsal with Kelvin Benjamin out for the year. Funchess has now been dealing with his hamstring injury for two weeks. Funchess has lost valuable reps but he clearly isn't healthy right now. His current ADP is Round 8.
Star Lotulelei - DTPosted 8/26/15 4:49pm ET
Carolina Panthers DT Star Lotulelei (foot) shed his walking boot and was riding a stationary bike Wednesday, Aug. 26.
Huddle Up: Lotulelei now has a little more than two weeks to get back in game shape, but coach Ron Rivera told Black and Blue Review that he has "no concern" about the stud DT being ready to play in the Sept. 13 opener against the Jaguars.
Cam Newton - QBPosted 8/23/15 11:13pm ET
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton went 4-for-10 for 42 yards and one interception in the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 22.
Huddle Up: Perhaps Newton misses top WR Kelvin Benjamin more than we think. Second-round WR Devin Funchess (hamstring) didn't play, and three of Newton's four completions and 27 of 42 yards Saturday went to TE Greg Olsen, leaving him 1-for-7 for 15 yards targeting everyone else. Definitely a situation to keep an eye on ...
