Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) wasn't ruled out as a potential starting option for the 2020 season by new head coach Matt Rhule Wednesday, Jan. 8. 'I certainly look forward to working with him. I hope so. But I don't know enough about, really, everything that's kinda happening right now,' Rhule said when asked if Newton is part of the team's future plans. The 2015 NFL MVP is coming off of season-ending foot surgery and will enter the final year of his contract.
Huddle Up: Newton has played a full 16-game season just once since his 2015 MVP campaign, and he played just two games in 2019. Newton will turn 31 years old in mid-May and his running production has been volatile since his MVP season. He's likely to be a risky QB1 wherever he suits up in 2020.

Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore finished his sophomore season with 87 catches on 135 targets for 1,175 yards after logging 55 receptions on 82 targets for 788 yards as a rookie.
Huddle Up: The jump in production from Moore is encouraging, especially when you consider that he missed almost two full games and had to deal with an injury to starting quarterback Cam Newton. Moore will head into 2020 as a WR2 in all fantasy formats.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey was voted a first-team Associated Press All-Pro at two positions: Running back and the relatively new offensive flex position.
Huddle Up: McCaffrey finishing with a whopping 150.4 PPR points than the next highest fantasy RB (Aaron Jones) and will be a near-consensus No. 1 overall pick in re-draft leagues this coming summer.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey is likely to receive the ball 'any way he can' in Week 17's game against the New Orleans Saints, according to interim offensive coordinator Scott Turner. McCaffrey is just 67 yards shy of becoming the third player in league history to reach 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in the same season.
Huddle Up: In addition to the above milestone, McCaffrey is also 216 yards away from breaking Chris Johnson's single-season yards from scrimmage record. He should be viewed as a must-start option in all fantasy formats.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Olsen was targeted five times last week with Will Grier at quarterback and may receive a similar workload this week. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Olsen appears to have a good chance to play in the Week 17 game. He was targeted five times by Will Grier in Week 16 and probably will receive a similar workload this week. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues but could also be benched if better options are available.

Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Moore will not play in the Week 17 game unless he clears the concussion protocol in the next day or two. Fantasy players can monitor the situation but should look for other options to use in their lineups.

Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore (concussion) was out of practice Tuesday, Dec. 24. He's unlikely to play in Week 17 after entering the concussion protocol Sunday, Dec. 22.
Huddle Up: Curtis Samuel may see a few more targets against the New Orleans Saints, but there really isn't any Panthers receiver worth starting in fantasy.

Carolina Panthers QB Will Grier will be the starting quarterback for the team's Week 17 game, according to interim head coach Perry Fewell.
Huddle Up: Grier struggled in his first career start last week and will be facing a tough New Orleans Saints defense in Week 17. He should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel posted two catches for 17 yards in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts while adding two runs for four yards.
Huddle Up: Samuel needs plays down the field to utilize his speed and that just wasn't happening with a rookie QB under center throwing the short and intermediate stuff. The Panthers host the New Orleans Saints in Week 17 to wrap up the season.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen registered a pair of receptions for 33 yards on five targets in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Olsen was making his way back from a concussion. The good news is that he played, the bad news is he was helping to break in a rookie quarterback and there wasn't a lot available down the field. The Panthers wrap up the season at home against the New Orleans Saints in Week 17.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 13 times for 54 yards in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts while racking up 15 receptions for 119 yards on 15 targets.
Huddle Up: CMC saw all kinds of short targets to help out rookie Will Grier in his first NFL start, so that was great news for fantasy owners even though the Panthers were creamed. That should be the story in Week 17 against the New Orleans Saints, too, as long as McCaffrey isn't rested for some reason.

Carolina Panthers QB Will Grier completed 27-of-44 passes for 224 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts in his first NFL start.
Huddle Up: Grier had a high completion percentage, seeing a lot of short and intermediate routes for safe stuff, but he also made many mistakes. He and the Panthers will wrap up the season in Week 17 against the New Orleans Saints in Charlotte.

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore (concussion) suffered a concussion during the Week 16 game and will not return.
Huddle Up: Moore will be questionable for the Week 17 game since he will have to pass the concussion tests before he is cleared to play. Fantasy players probably should look for other options for their lineups next week.

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (knee) is expected to play in Week 16's game against the Indianapolis Colts, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Samuel had been listed as questionable on the injury report due to a minor knee injury sustained at practice Thursday, Dec. 19. He should see a decent number of targets this afternoon but makes a risky starting option because he has been held under 40 receiving yards in five of his last six contests.

Carolina Panthers QB Will Grier will make his first NFL start in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts, and the Colts have allowed the seventh-most touchdown passes this season, surrendering four touchdown passes in each of the past two games.
Huddle Up: Trusting Grier during the fantasy playoffs isn't recommended, but with the Colts hemorrhaging yards and touchdowns through the air recently, the rookie could be worth a flier in DFS formats.

Huddle Up: Samuel has had a solid role in the passing game during the second half of the season and has two touchdowns in the last three games but has been held to under 40 yards in five of the last six games.

Huddle Up: The third-round rookie has not seen game action yet this season. He's should only be considered an option in two-quarterback leagues.

Carolina Panthers QB Will Grier is reportedly considered likely to start in Week 16 versus the Indianapolis Colts, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Panthers have been out of the playoff race for a while, so it makes sense they would want to use the final two weeks of the season to evaluate some of their young talent. Kyle Allen got off to a great start after his early-season promotion, but the wheels have really started to fall off for him of late. Grier was drafted in the third round this spring with an eye toward being Cam Newton's long-term backup. With a rookie quarterback making his first start, expectations need to be lowered for the entire offense.
