Free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater (Saints) officially signed with the Carolina Panthers Wednesday, March 25. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Bridgewater played well for the New Orleans Saints this past season and will have a good group of receivers to work with in Carolina. He probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

Updating a previous story, New Orleans Saints impending free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater will sign a three-year deal worth $63 million with the Carolina Panthers when the new league year opens Wednesday, March 18, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Bridgewater doesn't have much upside in terms of downfield passing ability. His signing boosts the PPR stock of RB Christian McCaffrey even higher. Target Bridgewater as a mid-tier QB2, though he could develop into a low-end QB1 if the Panthers are able to add some receiving help in the draft or free agency.

Free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater (Saints) is negotiating a three-year, $60 million contract with the Carolina Panthers, per a source. The deal is expected to be finalized when the league officially opens its new year Wednesday, March 18.
Huddle Up: Bridgewater is the replacement for Cam Newton before Superman is even out of the building. Purely a game manager, there's almost no fantasy football value for the well-traveled Louisville product. Carolina will continue to pound the ball and try to limit mistakes in the passing game. Bridgewater is a fringe backup option and best viewed as a spot-starter off of the waiver wire.

New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater, who has nine touchdown passes this season, will earn a $250,000 contract incentive if he throws at least one touchdown pass versus the Carolina Panthers in Week 17.

New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater will be moved back to the bench Sunday, Oct. 27, as QB Drew Brees (thumb) was named the Week 8 starter against the Arizona Cardinals, a source told Dianna Russini and Ed Werder of ESPN Saturday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: Bridgewater completed 69.70% of his passes over five starts for 1,205 yards with nine touchdowns against two interceptions. He should be stashed in dynasty and deeper keeper leagues in hope he can land a starting job next season.

New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater went 24-for-36 for 240 yards and one touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Bridgewater has been solid since taking over the starting job and probably will receive at least one more start before Drew Brees returns to the lineup. He will be facing a solid Chicago Bears defense next week and probably would only be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues.

New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater connected on 23 of his 30 passing attempts for 193 yards and an interception against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: After two weeks it's pretty clear the Saints are trying to follow the same script that the 2014/15 Vikings used with Bridgewater: run the ball, play good defense and don't make major mistakes. Unless they fall into a deep hole it seems unlikely the Saints will ask more out of Bridgewater, and that leaves him basically bereft of fantasy appeal.

New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater went 19-of-27 for 177 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 versus the Seattle Seahawks. He added three carries for 12 yards.
Huddle Up: Bridgewater effectively managed the game with Alvin Kamara doing the heavy lifting on offense and the defense/special teams scoring two touchdowns. Somewhat surprisingly, he ceded very few snaps to Taysom Hill in his first start in place of Drew Brees. Bridgewater figures to receive a stiffer test and will be no better than a middling QB2 option next week at home against Dallas Cowboys.
