Panthers | Jonathan Stewart terms

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 08:23:49 -0700

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart is due up to $9.5 million over the next two seasons with an $8 million base value. His new deal freed up $2.075 million in cap space for 2017.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers are expected to add an impact running back, and J-Stew has been frequently hobbled. Now 30, he's a low-end RB2 with minimal upside.

Panthers | 'No concern' Cam Newton ready for opener

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 10:39:49 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will be ready for the season opener "without a doubt", according to head coach Ron Rivera. Newton is set to undergo surgery Thursday, March 30, to repair the partially torn rotator cuff he suffered in Week 14. "There is no concern, at least in talking with the trainers and doctors. … They have a timeframe that they've mapped out for the most part. He'll be working with the trainers and he'll be working with us for the most part during the OTAs and minicamps," Rivera said.

Fantasy Tip: Newton will have about four full months before the start of training camp and has a little more than five months to recover in order to be ready for the season opener. By all accounts, the team is counting on him making a transition into being more of a pocket quarterback, which would make him far less valuable in fantasy. Between the surgery and his changing game, Newton may no longer make sense as a fantasy QB1 anymore.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart fine with team drafting RB

Sat, 25 Mar 2017 11:37:48 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart said he believes it would be a good thing if the Panthers selected a running back in the 2017 NFL draft because it would keep him fresher late in games.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart should be the starting running back for the Panthers next season but could lose some carries if the team adds a rookie running back. He has rushed for at least 800 yards in each of the last three season and has 15 touchdowns in the last two years. He should be considered a No. 3 running back in most leagues and possibly a low-end No. 2 back in deeper leagues.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin's option to be exercised

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 09:36:04 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin's fifth year option for the 2018 season will be picked up, according to general manager Dave Gettleman.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin missed the entire 2015 season due to injury and faded after a strong start in 2016, but he's still the best receiver the Panthers have. He'll be two years removed from ACL surgery at the start of the 2017 season, although he needs a healthy Cam Newton to realize his full potential. If Newton is good to go by Week 1, Benjamin can be considered a fantasy WR3 with big upside.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin deadline looming

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 06:41:33 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin has a May 2 deadline for the team to pick up his fifth-year option, which figures to be around $8 million.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin had 10 fewer catches for 67 fewer yards and two fewer touchdowns last season than in his rookie year in 2014. It was a 63-941-7 line, which is not bad at all, but it puts him in the low-end WR2 range. Was this a microcosm of him returning from a torn ACL, or is Benjamin just not on the WR1 path he projected towards? This year will likely answer that. His yards per reception jumped more than a yard to 14.9 yards per catch, and he presents a solid choice as a midrange WR2.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart extended

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 06:10:44 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart signed a contract extension through the 2018 season Friday, March 24. Stewart had a cap figure of $8.25 million, and the extension was expected to reduce that in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: The 30-year-old has been oft-injured, but he has been productive in the spurts he has been out there. His nine touchdowns last season were the most since 2009. However, there are rumblings the team is looking to draft a running back early in the 2017 NFL Draft, maybe Leonard Fournette, and that would reduce J-Stew's potential impact. He's a low-end RB2 for now, but that could dampen as the draft approaches.

Panthers | Cam Newton to have surgery

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 12:33:45 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will undergo surgery on a partially torn rotator cuff Thursday, March 30. The procedure is expected to sideline Newton for about four months.

Fantasy Tip: That timetable will put Newton right on the brink of being available for the start of the preseason. The Panthers may choose to hold Newton out for all of the offseason to as to ensure a complete and safe recovery. Assuming Newton does make a full recovery and is fully healthy for the start of the regular season, he remains a mid- to low-end QB1 option.
