Fantasy Tip: The move clears $1.725 million in cap space for Carolina, which appears set to go with either former Washington Redskin Darrel Young or Devon Johnson. Although he earned three Pro Bowl nods in five seasons with the Panthers, they never did use the 31-year-old much as a receiver. Tolbert should find another employer in relatively short order, but his days as a fantasy asset are well in the rear-view mirror.

Free-agent WR Victor Cruz (Giants) said his visit with the Carolina Panthers Monday, Feb. 20, went well. No deal is imminent at this point, but it appears there is mutual interest between Cruz and the Panthers. Cruz does not have any other visits scheduled at this point.
Fantasy Tip: Cruz could meet with a few more teams before he signs with a team, but he may have to wait before he receives a deal. Cruz has dealt with injuries in the last several years but was able play 15 games in 2016 and finished with 586 yards and one touchdown. Cruz probably will be a No. 3 receiver for a team in 2017 and can be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver for fantasy owners.

Fantasy Tip: The term "washed up" was made for players like Cruz. He didn't produce much in a complementary role with the Giants last year and is clearly past his prime. For now, only draft him as a late-round option in standard leagues.

Free-agent WR Victor Cruz (Giants) could be pursued by the Carolina Panthers, according to beat writer David Newton. General manager Dave Gettleman has a connection with Cruz from his time with the New York Giants, and Cruz would fill Carolina's need for a slot receiver.

Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey could have a potential landing spot with the Carolina Panthers with the No. 8 pick in the 2017 NFL draft. The Panthers hired running backs coach Lance Taylor last week, and he coached McCaffrey in college. Florida State RB Dalvin Cook and Louisiana State RB Leonard Fournette are also mentioned as options.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart appears to be in the team's plans for 2017. Head coach Ron Rivera mentioned Stewart by name in saying the team can't rely on its quarterback as its leading rusher. "We've got to get guys like Jonathan Stewart rolling. We've got to put it in our backs' hands and get the ball to our playmakers."
Fantasy Tip: There was some question as to whether the team would move on from the soon-to-be 30-year-old. However, they're expected to bring in competition at the position. Stewart is oft-injured, but he has been serviceable in committees. Age and attrition might bump him down into the RB3 area in fantasy.

Fantasy Tip: Gano made 78.9 percent of his field goal attempts this season and rank 25th in the NFL in that category. He probably will be the favorite for the job entering training camp but probably can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
