Panthers | Greg Olsen to have surgery

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 08:49:36 -0700

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) will undergo surgery on his broken right foot and miss six to eight weeks. The team will decide after surgery whether he'll be placed on the Reserve/Injured list designated to return.

Fantasy Tip: If you have roster space, hold on to him and stash him for the stretch run. Ed Dickson had two grabs for 26 yards in his absence, but he doesn't have much fantasy appeal. Expect Kelvin Benjamin to see more targets with Cam Newton's security blanket out. K-Benj is a good WR2 to have.

Panthers | Greg Olsen likely out six games

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 05:32:05 -0700

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) figures to miss six games and could go on the Reserve/Injured list designated to return. It's not a season-ending injury.

Fantasy Tip: Ed Dickson had two catches for 26 yards in the game, and he has very little roster appeal. Kelvin Benjamin should see more looks in Olsen's absence as a WR2.

Panthers | Graham Gano is Carolina's hero

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 15:53:06 -0700

Carolina Panthers PK Graham Gano converted each of his three field goal attempts (34, 28, 20) in Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills to account for all of the scoring in the 9-3 victory.

Fantasy Tip: Gano was the fantasy hero for the Panthers, and might be the most valuable option on the roster through two weeks. He should have another high-scoring game against the visiting Saints in Week 3.

Panthers | Nothing doing for Curtis Samuel

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 15:52:32 -0700

Carolina Panthers rookie WR Curtis Samuel posted two grabs for seven yards in Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills

Fantasy Tip: Samuel hasn't been much of the plan so far during his early days in Charlotte, but he could see more responsibilities as everyone is asked to do more with Greg Olsen (foot) going down. Still, Samuel is battling Russell Shepard and Damiere Byrd for scraps and is only worth rostering in long-term fantasy formats at this time.

Panthers | Ed Dickson totals 26 yards

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 15:51:55 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson racked up two receptions for 26 yards on three targets in Week 2 against the visiting Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Dickson was called upon to do more after starting TE Greg Olsen went down with what is believed to be a multi-week injury to his foot. Even as the top tight end in Carolina, Dickson is more of a low-end TE2 for fantasy purposes heading into Week 3 against the Saints.

Panthers | Devin Funchess picks up the pace

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 15:51:10 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess posted four catches for 68 yards on seven targets in Week 2 against Buffalo.

Fantasy Tip: Funchess picked up a little bit of the slack with one of Cam Newton's favorite targets, Greg Olsen, going down to a major foot injury. The receiver out of the University of Michigan should see an uptick in targets going forward. He is worth a look as a WR4 or WR5 in deeper leagues heading into Week 3 against New Orleans.

Panthers | Kelvin Benjamin leads way in Week 2

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 15:50:16 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin hauled in six receptions for 77 yards in Week 2 against the Bills on his eight targets.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin should see even more heavy lifting in upcoming weeks, especially in the red zone, with Greg Olsen (foot) sidelined for what is believed to be a multi-week injury. Benjamin is a decent WR3 or flex play heading into Week 3 against the defensively challenged Saints.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey sees 12 touches

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 15:49:42 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushes eight times for just 10 yards in Week 2 against Buffalo while adding four grabs for 34 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: McCaffrey might see more work in the passing game in upcoming weeks with Greg Olsen (foot) expected to be sidelined for multiple weeks. McCaffrey is a decent RB3 or flex play in PPR formats, especially in Week 3 against a very giving Saints defense.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart doesn't do a lot

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 15:48:58 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart rushed 15 times for 40 yards in Week 2 against the Bills and he didn't have a reception on just one target.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart had 15 touches to 12 for rookie Christian McCaffrey, so J-Stew remains the lead dog in Charlotte - but not by much. He should find plenty of open spaces in Week 3 against the visiting Saints, but treat him as a RB3 or flex play in most formats.

Panthers | Cam Newton accounts for zero TDs

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 15:48:25 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 20 of his 32 pass attempts for 228 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 2 against the Bills while posting five runs for 27 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Newton was shaken up briefly in the game, as it appears he took an inadvertent knee to the head on one of his rush attempts, but he did not miss any snaps. He is off to a poor start for his fantasy owners so far, as the Carolina offense has totaled just two touchdowns through two games. Things should be a little more wide open in Week 3 against the defensively challenged Saints.

Panthers | Greg Olsen breaks foot

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 13:45:55 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) said he suffered a broken foot during the team's Week 2 game.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen probably will be a candidate for the Reserve/Injured list depending on his timetable, so owners will need to look for other options at the position. Ed Dickson likely will take over as Carolina's starting tight end but should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Panthers | Cam Newton back on the field

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 12:24:47 -0700

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) returned to the team's Week 2 game even though he suffered an ankle injury earlier in the game.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Newton is dealing with a minor injury and likely will be able to finish the game. He could miss some practice time this week but appears to have a good chance in Week 3. Newton should be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback against most opponents.

Panthers | Cam Newton shaken up

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 12:18:38 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (leg) suffered an apparent left leg injury during the team's Week 2 game but was able to walk off the field.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Newton will miss any additional time because of the injury. Newton has been off to a solid start this season and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback if he is healthy.

Panthers | Greg Olsen will not return

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 11:51:45 -0700

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) will not return to the team's Week 2 game because of his foot injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to look for an update on Olsen's status after the game to see if he will miss more time. Olsen is one of the best tight ends in the NFL and is a must-start option when he is healthy, but owners may want to look for other options in case Olsen misses time.
