Panthers | Moving away from zone-read option

The Carolina Panthers did not run many zone-read OTAs. The option package will be de-emphasized under new offensive coordinator Mike Shula.

Fantasy Tip: Great idea, since Cam Newton struggled in those plays early last season. The switch that was flipped in Newton's stats column was prompted by Carolina easing up on the zone-read. Expect the typical erratic statistical distribution among the backfield, but Newton should have another fine year with his increased time as a pocket passer. He'll cost plenty in drafts.
