Carolina Panthers news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: Ginn ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is a deep threat for the Carolina passing game, but he's more useful in standard-scoring leagues, and he's also been plagued by drops this year. Against a capable Dallas Cowboys pass defense, Ginn doesn't have a ton of upside this week on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: With Brown ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) out in Week 11, Devin Funchess continued his rise to prominence in his rookie season. Brown has probably fallen down the depth chart at this point, and he's not really a viable option in any fantasy format right now.

Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess is showing signs of becoming a similar receiver to teammate WR Kelvin Benjamin, who caught 73 passes for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns in his rookie season in 2014. Funchess had six drops and just seven catches for 90 yards in the first seven games with Benjamin out for the year. Since then he has picked it up, and he moved into a starting role in Week 11 with WR Corey Brown injured and caught four passes for 64 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy Tip: Even if Brown makes it back to play in the Thanksgiving matchup against the Dallas Cowboys this Thursday, there's a good chance Funchess ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has surpassed him on the depth chart. Dallas has held their own against receivers this year, but Funchess should still be good enough for a flex play on FantasyScore.

Carolina Panthers CB Charles Tillman (knee), OG Amini Silatolu (knee), and DT Dwan Edwards (ankle) did not practice Monday, Nov. 23. Additionally, OG Andrew Norwell (hamstring) was a limited participant.

Fantasy Tip: Brown missed the Week 11 game against the Washington Redskins and hasn't recorded more than three catches in a game all season. With the emergence of rookie Devin Funchess in his absence, not to mention Cam Newton's established rapport with Ted Ginn Jr. and Greg Olsen, Brown is not really a fantasy option.
Mon, 23 Nov 2015 15:51:41 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Despite only having one touchdown catch in his past six games, Ginn is actually starting to turn into a decent WR3 or flex option, having garnered eight targets or more in four of the last five weeks. If Corey Brown misses another game, then Ginn should be on your radar, although rookie Devin Funchess might end up becoming the club's most valuable receiver.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has been one of the most consistent quarterbacks in the NFL this season, and he has stayed healthy. His matchup this week will be tough, though, as the Dallas Cowboys have only allowed 13 total touchdowns to quarterbacks this season.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) appears to have found a strong backfield to run in, and Carolina appears to be it. QB Cam Newton doesn't mind sharing the wealth, either, so that means better news for Stewart owners.
Sun, 22 Nov 2015 15:13:51 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Newton ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) had a fantastic performance, no doubt helped by Washington's shaky defense. Still, Newton has been a solid performer all season and got his 100th touchdown pass in this game. Keep him in mind as a quality starting QB on your roster.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has played very well this season despite limited weapons at wide receiver. Newton has been able to produce with his arm and legs this season and should be a starting option for fantasy owners most weeks.

Fantasy Tip: This will mark the third consecutive week where Artis-Payne ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has been a healthy inactive. He has fallen to third on Carolina's depth chart, behind Jonathan Stewart ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) and Fozzy Whittaker ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and doesn't have any fantasy value as long as Stewart remains healthy.
