Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Huddle Up: McCaffrey will receive a significant amount of touches this week against the Seattle Seahawks and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

Carolina Panthers TE Ian Thomas is slated to start for injured teammate Greg Olsen (concussion) on Sunday, Dec. 15, in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Thomas, surprisingly, is available in too many leagues after he was targeted 10 times -- second on the team to Christian McCaffrey -- and reeled in five of them for 57 yards and a TD as he stepped in for Olsen in Week 14. He's a legit low-end TE1 streamer in a plus-matchup against the Seahawks.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (concussion) on Friday, Dec. 13, was ruled out of the team's Week 15 game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: As expected, Olsen will miss his second straight game as he's yet to recover from the nasty shot he took to the head in in Week 13. Hopefully, his fantasy owners still kept their replacement plan in place.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: McCaffrey is one of the most valuable fantasy options in the NFL and is a must-start option no matter the opponent.

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (concussion) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Olsen appears to be making progress in his recovery but still has not been cleared to play in Week 15. Fantasy players should check on his status later in the week to see if he will be able to play. He could be a possible low-end No. 1 tight end if he is active.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: McCaffrey will return to the practice field in the next day or two and will continue to receive plenty of touches in the offense. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (concussion) took part in individual drills Wednesday, Dec. 11, which was a moderate surprise to beat writer Joe Person.
Huddle Up: Olsen has a great matchup against the Seattle Seahawks this week if he's able to go. Olsen will be a low-end TE1 option in PPR leagues.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) underwent Lisfranc surgery Monday, Dec. 9, according to sources. He hopes to be ready for spring workouts.
Huddle Up: Newton should be ready for the start of the 2020 season, but it is not known which team he will be playing for next season. He is a starting fantasy option when he is healthy.

Carolina Panthers TE Ian Thomas caught five passes for 57 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets at the Atlanta Falcons in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8. He replaced in injured Greg Olsen (concussion) in the starting lineup.
Huddle Up: No Olsen opened the door for the talented Thomas to show up for fantasy purposes. He flashed a few times last year, as well, and he's a quality fantasy option for a touchdown gamble in Week 15 vs. Seattle, should Olsen miss another one.

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel landed two of his four targets for 25 yards at the Atlanta Falcons in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8. He added three rushes for 17 yards.
Huddle Up: It was a disaster of a performance for fantasy purposes, but luckily Samuel is a cog in the wheel and not the engine that powers your machine. The Seahawks host Carolina in Week 15, and Samuel is a reasonable WR3 or flex option in any scoring format.

Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore caught four passes for 82 yards on six targets at the Atlanta Falcons in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8.
Huddle Up: Moore has been quite the PPR option all season, going for double digits in his "down" games. The Panthers head to Seattle in Week 15, and he's a WR2 in any format that rewards receptions.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 11 times for 53 yards but added 11 catches for 82 yards on 12 targets at the Atlanta Falcons in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8.
Huddle Up: As usual, when things are slow on the ground, McCaffrey's aerial contributions make all of the difference in fantasy. He's a lineup lock, regardless of the matchup, which happens to be Seattle in Week 15.

Carolina Panthers QB Kyle Allen completed 28-for-41 passing for 293 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions at the Atlanta Falcons in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8. He rushed for 24 yards on six carries and scored once. Allen lost one of two fumbles.
Huddle Up: Allen helped his fantasy efforts with the rushing score but belongs nowhere near a starting lineup at this time.

The Carolina Panthers could attempt to trade QB Cam Newton (foot) during the offseason, provided that they are able to receive a decent return for him, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Newton will undergo Lisfranc surgery on his foot this week and is expected to be fully recovered by March, when his future with the Panthers is likely to be decided. He is slated to make $18.6 million next season but Carolina could proceed with less expensive options such as Kyle Allen or Will Grier and trade Newton to improve at other positions. Furthermore, a new head coach may want to go in a different direction at the quarterback position. Regardless of where he lands in 2020, Newton is a potential rebound candidate, so he could be a bargain during the mid-to-late rounds of next year's fantasy drafts.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (concussion) on Friday, Dec. 6, was ruled out of Week 14 with a concussion.
Huddle Up: As expected, Olsen is a no-go for the first time this season. Backup Ian Thomas is a decent fantasy fill-in if the tight end options are as thin as they are in most leagues.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: It appears like Olsen will not be cleared to play in the Week 14, but fantasy players should monitor the situation. Ian Thomas likely would be the starting tight end if Olsen is ruled out but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Huddle Up: Olsen needs to pass all of his concussion tests before he is cleared to play, so his status for Week 14 is uncertain at this point. He has been a decent fantasy option during the second half of the season and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end if he plays, but fantasy players will need a backup plan ready in case he is ruled out.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) plans to have surgery to repair the Lisfranc injury in his foot. Recovery time is two to three months, which will allow him to be healthy by March. The Panthers have a decision to make on him around that time, and he's considered a long shot to be with the team in 2020.
Huddle Up: Newton could be a rebound candidate in a new location next season. Don't forget about him if you wind up taking a quarterback late in drafts next season.

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel posted four grabs for 65 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Samuel hasn't been able to post a 100-yard game yet this season, but he has a total of five touchdown receptions and one rushing score while posting three or more grabs in 11 of his 12 outings. He is a solid WR4 or flex fantasy option in most leagues. He'll face the Atlanta Falcons on the road in Week 14.

Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore registered six receptions for 75 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Moore managed just one touchdown in his first 10 games, but he has found the end zone three times in the past two outings. He has also recorded at least five receptions in each of the past eight games to serve as a decent WR3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 14 in Atlanta.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 14 times for 44 yards in Week 13 against the Washington Redskins and he added seven grabs for 58 yards on 13 targets.
Huddle Up: It wasn't a horrible stat line for most, but fantasy owners expect much more from CMC, especially against what was supposed to be an inferior opponent. He'll look to bounce back in Week 14 in Atlanta.

Carolina Panthers QB Kyle Allen completed 27-of-46 passes for 278 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Week 13 against the Washington Redskins and he also ran for 22 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: Allen got off to a great start in terms of the win-loss record, but it's been a slow fade lately. He had a hand in three total touchdowns, but he was also sacked three times and, of course, he fumbles twice while losing one of them. The Panthers are back in action in Week 14 at Atlanta.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (concussion) suffered a concussion during the Week 13 game.
Huddle Up: Olsen will not be allowed to play until he is cleared by doctors, so his status for Week 14 is uncertain. Fantasy players should monitor his practice participation next week to see if he will play. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end if he plays.

Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore (ankle, non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Moore is coming off a two-touchdown game in Week 12 and has been one of the better receivers in the NFL over the last month. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 fantasy receiver against the Washington Redskins.

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Samuel has been targeted 24 times over the last four games but has not posted great numbers in three of those games. He will have a favorable matchup this week and can be at least a flex option in leagues.
