• Cam Newton - QB
    Posted 12/13/18 11:44am ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Newton has not played well at all of late. Some of that porous play may be attributed to his throwing shoulder injury. Even so, the prime time matchup against the New Orleans Saints is a prime opportunity for Newton to rebound.

  • Christian McCaffrey - RB
    Posted 12/9/18 1:38pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 16 times for 63 yards and two touchdowns in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns and he added six catches for 38 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: McCaffrey went over 100 total scrimmage yards for the sixth consecutive game, and he has seven rushing touchdowns and five more scores through the air across the past seven outings. He has emerged as a fantasy star and a legit option in the first round next season. The Panthers host the Saints in Week 15 on Monday night.

  • Cam Newton - QB
    Posted 12/9/18 1:22pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 26-of-42 passes for 265 yards, no touchdowns and an interception with 23 rushing yards in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Newton had his 11-game streak with two or more touchdown passes snapped. The last time he was blanked was way back in Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys. He likely let down many fantasy owners at a critical juncture. Next up is a battle with the New Orleans Saints on Monday night in Week 15.

  • Devin Funchess - WR
    Posted 12/9/18 1:52pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess went without a catch on three targets in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Funchess appeared to be the No. 1 receiver heading into the season, but D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel have sped past him and he is irrelevant from a fantasy perspective at this point.

  • D.J. Moore - WR
    Posted 12/9/18 1:50pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore hauled in five catches for 67 yards on eight targets in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Moore has posted five consecutive games with four or more grabs, as he is looking like a dependable PPR option down the stretch. The Panthers host the Saints in Week 15 on Monday night.

  • Ian Thomas - TE
    Posted 12/9/18 1:44pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Ian Thomas posted a game highs with nine receptions and 11 targets in the Week 14 road loss against the Cleveland Browns, finishing with 77 yards.

    Huddle Up: Thomas was making the start with Greg Olsen (foot) done for the season and Thomas was a nice security blanket for Cam Newton. He might be the future in Charlotte at the position, and is a decent short-term PPR target if you need help at tight end. The Panthers host the Saints in Week 15 on Monday night.

  • Curtis Samuel - WR
    Posted 12/9/18 1:41pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel posted four grabs for a team-high 80 yards on eight targets in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Samuel, who played his college football at Ohio State, had a nice homecoming. He has 10 receptions for 168 yards on 19 targets in the past two outings to emerge as a solid WR4 or flex option. The Panthers host the Saints in Week 15 on Monday night.

  • Christian McCaffrey - RB
    Posted 12/7/18 12:45pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: McCaffrey has rushed for at least 100 yards in each of his last two games and has recorded at least one touchdown in five of his last six games. He should be a No. 1 fantasy running back in all leagues this week.

  • Christian McCaffrey - RB
    Posted 12/6/18 9:06am ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey has 80 receptions through 12 games and is on pace for 107 receptions, which would break Matt Forte's running back record of 102 in 2014.

    Huddle Up: McCaffrey has been the RB1 fantasy general managers have hoped for as his 80 catches and 663 receiving yards pace all RBs while adding 863 yards and five more scores on the ground.

  • Cam Newton - QB
    Posted 12/6/18 9:19am ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) did not throw in practice Thursday, Dec. 6, for the second straight day but took part in team drills during the early potion of practice.

    Huddle Up: You're still starting Cam if he plays as expected Sunday, but the noise about his lingering shoulder issue has grown louder as the season has progressed. His stats mirror that trend as well as he's thrown nine TD passes and seven interceptions during the Panthers' current four-game losing streak after having a 15-4 ratio in his first eight games.

  • Christian McCaffrey - RB
    Posted 12/6/18 11:49am ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (rest) put in a full practice Thursday, Dec. 6.

    Huddle Up: Start McCaffrey against anyone on any day. He's on pace for over 2,000 total yards.

  • Greg Olsen - TE
    Posted 12/5/18 5:20am ET

    Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Dec. 5.

    Huddle Up: Olsen turns 34 in March, and there is real concern that a decline is underway. He'll be a midrange TE1 with questions next season.

  • Cam Newton - QB
    Posted 12/5/18 12:18pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) put in a limited practice Wednesday, Dec. 5.

    Huddle Up: Newton should be fine if he avoids a setback. He's in a plus matchup versus the Cleveland Browns and is looking for a rebound performance after throwing four interceptions last week. Top-five fantasy quarterback status is Newton's for the taking.

  • Christian McCaffrey - RB
    Posted 12/5/18 12:14pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (rest) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 5.

    Huddle Up: The Panthers took it easy with their star running back today. He'll be fine for the weekend. He's an automatic start in any matchup with RB1 upside any given week.

  • Greg Olsen - TE
    Posted 12/4/18 12:23pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) is expected to be placed on the Reserve/Injured list this week, according to a source. Olsen suffered a torn right plantar fascia in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Olsen will enter a much needed offseason during which he will recover from the foot issues that have plagued him in 2018. Olsen will be 34 years old next season and is on the decline considering his age and injury history.

  • Greg Olsen - TE
    Posted 12/3/18 10:41am ET

    Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) will miss the remainder of the season after being diagnosed with a ruptured plantar fascia Monday, Dec. 3.

    Huddle Up: It's the second straight season the 33-year-old tight end will not finish the season due to a foot injury, and it's fair to wonder if this could be the last time we see him play. Olsen has worked with NFL Network on their coverage of the NFL Combine in recent years and would likely have a job as an analyst waiting for him if he wants it. Rookie Ian Thomas caught five passes for 46 yards - both season highs - in a Week 13 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and will finish the season out as Carolina's top receiving tight end.

  • Devin Funchess - WR
    Posted 12/2/18 6:29am ET

    Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess (back) is expected to play in Week 13's game versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a limited basis.

    Huddle Up: Funchess had been listed as questionable on the injury report after logging one full practice session and one limited session during the week. He should be viewed as a risky flex option this afternoon since he will see fewer offensive snaps than usual.

  • Greg Olsen - TE
    Posted 12/2/18 10:51am ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) suffered a foot injury during the Week 13 game and will not return.

    Huddle Up: Olsen has dealt with foot injuries over the last two years, so owners will need to look for an update on his status in the near future. Chris Manhertz and Ian Thomas would receive bigger roles if Olsen misses time but neither are options for fantasy owners.

  • Cam Newton - QB
    Posted 12/2/18 1:23pm ET

    Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 28-of-41 passes for 300 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions in the Week 13 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he rushed for 33 yards.

    Huddle Up: It was a rough day for Cam, as he was hurried frequently and sacked four times, too. Carolina has dropped four in a row, and will look to turn it around in Cleveland in Week 14. While the team has been losing lately, Newton has two or more touchdown passes in 11 straight games to please his fantasy owners.

  • Ian Thomas - TE
    Posted 12/2/18 1:37pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Ian Thomas registered five catches for 46 yards on five targets in Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Thomas was the next man up after Greg Olsen suffered yet another injury to his foot. It's uncertain if Olsen will be forced to miss more time, but with the Panthers skidding out of control and perhaps out of the playoff race, it wouldn't be surprising to see more Thomas and less Olsen going forward.

  • Devin Funchess - WR
    Posted 12/2/18 1:34pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess had just one grab for 10 yards in Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but he made it count for a touchdown on three targets.

    Huddle Up: Funchess entered the game with a back injury, and he was expected to see limited snaps and that was certainly the case. He'll be a questionable fantasy play heading into Week 14 in Cleveland, too.

  • D.J. Moore - WR
    Posted 12/2/18 1:32pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore racked up four receptions for 44 yards on eight targets in Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he also ran for 21 yards.

    Huddle Up: Moore has four or more grabs to emerge as a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option for those in PPR leagues of 12 or more teams. The Panthers will travel to meet the Browns in Week 14.

  • Curtis Samuel - WR
    Posted 12/2/18 1:29pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel registered six receptions for 88 yards on 11 targets in Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Samuel has been carving out a larger role for himself lately and it culminated in a big game in a losing effort in this one. He should still be treated as WR4 or flex fantasy option going forward, but he might be ready to take another big step in fantasy heading into 2019. Dynasty leaguers might want to pay him some mind.

  • Christian McCaffrey - RB
    Posted 12/2/18 1:26pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 10 times for 106 yards in Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added nine receptions for 55 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets.

    Huddle Up: McCaffrey has emerged as a must-start fantasy option and potential first-round pick in leagues heading into 2019. After a rather sluggish October he has erupted for 231 rushing yards, a touchdown, 20 grabs for 167 yards and two more scores over his past two games. He has five rushing scores and 10 total touchdowns over the past six games, too. Next up is a trip to Cleveland in Week 14.

  • Ron Rivera - HC
    Posted 12/1/18 11:06am ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess (back) is listed as questionable for the Week 13 game, but head coach Ron Rivera said Funchess probably would have been listed as probable if that was still an option.

    Huddle Up: Funchess has been targeted 18 times in his last three games but has been held under 50 yards in each of his last four games. He will have a favorable matchup this week but may only be a flex option for owners.

  • Graham Gano - PK
    Posted 11/30/18 2:39pm ET

    Carolina Panthers PK Graham Gano (knee) was listed as a full participant in practice Friday, Nov. 30 and lifted from the injury report ahead of the Week 13 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Gano will be looking to redeem himself after a costly missed field goal near the end of regulation left his team with a loss against the Seattle Seahawks last weekend. He is still a nice low-end No. 1 fantasy option due to his exceptional length.

  • Devin Funchess - WR
    Posted 11/30/18 2:36pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess (back, not injury related) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 30, but he is still listed as questionable for Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Funchess has appeared to fall behind D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel, but he still could be a useful WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams against a leaky Bucs pass defense.

  • Torrey Smith - WR
    Posted 11/30/18 2:49pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Torrey Smith (knee) practiced in full for the second straight day Friday, Nov. 30, and he was removed from the Week 13 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Smith will be facing the 27th-ranked pass defense of the Buccaneers, a team which has allowed an NFL-worst 26 passing touchdowns. The veteran could use on, as he hasn't scored since Oct. 14 after missing four games, and he has just two touchdowns in seven games overall. Smith is only worth a look in the deepest of fantasy leagues at the moment.

  • Curtis Samuel - WR
    Posted 11/30/18 2:47pm ET

    Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (hamstring) practiced in full on Friday, Nov. 30 and he is off the injury report ahead of the Week 13 game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Samuel hasn't put up huge numbers lately, but he is working on a streak of five straight games with two or more grabs while finding the end zone in three of the past four. He has emerged as a decent low-end WR4 or flex fantasy option in most fantasy leagues.

  • Greg Olsen - TE
    Posted 11/30/18 2:44pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 30, and he is off the injury report ahead of the Week 13 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He had season highs with six grabs, 76 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting with the Bucs on Nov. 4.

    Huddle Up: Olsen has struggled over the past three games since that last Tampa meeting, going for eight grabs and just 60 yards with a touchdown. He and his fantasy owners hope he can get back on track against the league's 27th-ranked pass defense.
