Panthers | Carolina players won't be rested

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 12:00:43 -0800

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said he will not rest his starters as long as their games have value and meaning. The Panthers could clinch home-field advantage in the playoffs if they win in Week 16 against the Atlanta Falcons, so the starters will play.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners shouldn't be worried about starting every-week Carolina players like Cam Newton and Greg Olsen. Even Ted Ginn is worth at least flex consideration in championship, and he could have good value on FantasyScore, too.

Rivera said he wants to make sure his players are healthy at this point in the season. He's not worried about the statistics.

Panthers | Ted Ginn, Corey Brown starting

Mon, 07 Sep 2015 10:43:33 -0700

Carolina Panthers WRs Ted Ginn Jr. and Corey Brown are considered the starting wide receivers at this point, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Ginn ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Brown ($2,000) may start but Devin Funchess ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) should also see significant play time in Week 1. Funchess likely is the only Panthers receiver that has fantasy value for Week 1 and could be an option on FantasyScore.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams doubtful

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 09:38:09 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) is doubtful for the team's Week 15 game, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: It is unlikely that Williams will be able to play in this week's game. He should be avoided in FantasyScore contests. Jonathan Stewart is an excellent option at $5,000 this week. He should be considered for your roster.

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 10:59:44 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Anderson will cost $3,700 in FantasyScore this week, and is a nice sleeper option for your roster. Anderson played well against the Buccaneers in the team's Week 1 game.
