Panthers | Offense too conservative?

Mon, 09 Sep 2013 16:28:48 -0700

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera admitted that his team's offense was too conservative in their Week 1 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. QB Cam Newton only had three pass attempts of more than 10 yards in the game. "There are some things that need to be looked at on both sides in terms of getting the ball vertical," Rivera said as he looked ahead to Week 2 at the Buffalo Bills. "We looked through it. We talked about it and those will be the things that we look to do. We have to create more of those opportunities." The Panthers rushed for 134 yards on 26 carries against Seattle.

Fantasy Tip: To be fair, the Panthers were facing one of the better pass defenses in the league in the Seahawks. However, expect Newton and the offense to attempt to stretch the field more often, beginning in Week 2. This should benefit Steve Smith, Greg Olsen and the other receiving options.

Sat, 27 Jul 2013 23:38:25 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton, WR Steve Smith and TE Greg Olsen have all come out in support of testing for human growth hormone, something currently not done in the NFL. "Whatever the NFL decides to do I'm all for it, whether HGH testing or any testing," Newton said. "I'll be prepared to do the test." Olsen also called it good for the game, and Smith said he is all for weeding out the cheaters.

Panthers | Greg Olsen showing rapport with Cam Newton

Tue, 18 Jun 2013 06:08:18 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen is showing great timing with QB Cam Newton during offseason workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen could re-establish himself as a solid No. 1 tight end option this season. He's expected to play most snaps and could develop into Newton's top target. Look at him as a sneaky low-end No. 1 option.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen had team-highs with six receptions and 89 yards in the Week 4 loss against the Atlanta Falcons, and he had a 17-yard touchdown to open the game's scoring.
