Fantasy Tip: Fuchess has been sidelined because of a hamstring injury and probably will not see many snaps during the game. Funchess could be the team's No. 1 receiver this season with Kelvin Benjamin out and could be an option in the late rounds of drafts.

Carolina Panthers DE Charles Johnson (neck, shoulder) will not be able to play in the final preseason game because of an injury. Head coach Ron Rivera wanted Johnson to receive some snaps in the game because he missed the previous three preseason games because of a calf injury.

Carolina Panthers TE Brandon D. Williams (groin) may be on the roster bubble if he does not perform well during the final preseason game. Williams missed most of the preseason because of a groin injury.

Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown could be on the roster bubble if he continues to struggle with dropped passes during the final preseason game. Brown dropped two touchdown passes over the last two games and dropped three passes in the last game.
Fantasy Tip: Brown could have a solid role in the passing game if he is able to fix his problem because the team lost Kelvin Benjamin for the season. Brown probably should not be selected in drafts but could be a waiver wire option during the season if he makes the team.

Fantasy Tip: Devin Funchess and Greg Olsen are the main beneficiaries of Benjamin's absence. Jerricho Cotchery and Corey Brown should also see increased roles. Funchess now has low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 potential. Olsen should be considered a top-three fantasy tight end. Cotchery and Brown are safer to draft for depth, but could be viewed as deep sleepers.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound serious, but it's a concern with Week 1 so close. If he checks out OK, he's in the WR3-WR4 range.

Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown dropped four passes during the preseason game against the New England Patriots Friday, Aug. 28. Three drops were on the same drive, which included a would-be touchdown on a deep ball and an end-zone target. Head coach Ron Rivera said Brown needed to stop putting pressure on himself to replace WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) after the game. "To replace Benjamin is going to be a unit job, not a one-man job," Rivera added.
Fantasy Tip: Brown also dropped two passes last week, so while there may be a clear opportunity for the sophomore, he isn't doing his part to grab the ball and run with it. Brown is nothing more than a late-round flier in most leagues. Rookie Devin Funchess (hamstring) is looking more and more like the receiver to target from Carolina, but he will likely be inconsistent from week to week, especially with Rivera continuing to preach the group effort to replace Benjamin's targets and production from last season.
