Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater completed 16-of-29 passes for 216 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 6 against the Chicago Bears and he also ran for 48 yards.
Huddle Up: Bridgewater hasn't made a lot of mistakes this season, but he tossed two interceptions for the first time since Week 2 in Tampa Bay. That loss to the Bucs was also the first time he failed to throw a touchdown. He'll look to rebound in Week 7 on the road against the New Orleans Saints.

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater completed 27-of-37 passes for 313 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Bridgewater posted his second 300-yard game of the season and he has multi-touchdown games in each of his past two starts. If you need an emergency fantasy starter due to bye weeks or injuries to your start, Bridgewater could be a decent stopgap option. The Panthers welcome the Bears to town in Week 6.

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater completed 22-of-28 passes for 235 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Chargers and he ran for 12 more yards.
Huddle Up: Bridgewater's passing yardage total was his lowest of the season, but remember he was without star back Christian McCaffrey - and they won. He remains more of a low-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues using two starting quarterbacks, especially since CMC is out. The Panthers host the Cardinals in Week 4.

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater completed 33-of-42 passes for 367 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Bridgewater lost Christian McCaffrey due to an ankle injury in the second half of this one, and he didn't find the end zone, but he still did pretty well. He could be a solid fill-in for fantasy owners once bye weeks kick in, and he is a must-have in leagues using two starting signal callers. The Panthers travel to meet the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 3.

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater completed 22-of-34 passes for 270 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 1 against the Las Vegas Raiders, and he also ran four times for 26 yards.
Huddle Up: Bridgewater did a pretty decent job in his team debut. He really seemed to jell nicely with Robby Anderson (6-115-1), who he briefly worked with in training camp with the New York Jets in 2019. He remains more of a QB2 heading into Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater has been 'an accurate passer' on short- and medium-range passes throughout camp, according to Jonathan Alexander of the Charlotte Observer. Per Alexander, while Bridgewater's passes haven't necessarily traveled 50-plus yards, he has consistently connected with his receivers when he has thrown a deep ball.

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater is 'exactly what we want' and has 'a great arm,' according to head coach Matt Rhule.
'I think this offense, in general, when you look at in New Orleans, that iteration of it, where (new offensive coordinator Joe Brady) first learned it, is not necessarily a vertical, down-the-field passing game as much as it is a catch-and-run, underneath, matchup-type passing game. You obviously have to be able to throw the ball downfield. Teddy's got a great arm. I can remember he threw what I would call a launch route 48 yards down the right sideline to the 12-yard line against somebody. So he certainly has the arm strength to do it,' Rhule told Joe Person of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: Arm strength has long been cited as a downfall for Bridgewater. While he showed was capable of running the Saints' offense during a five-start audition last season with Drew Brees sidelined, it is worth noting he averaged only 33 pass attempts in those contests as New Orleans relied heavily on the running game. A bigger concern for Bridgewater may be whether or not the Carolina offensive line can protect him as well. Despite an impressive supporting cast, Bridgewater should be viewed as a QB2 in fantasy.

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater is entering a season as his team's unquestioned starter for the first time since 2015, and head coach Matt Ruhle said he jumped at the chance to give Bridgewater the opportunity. 'I believe so wholeheartedly in who he is as a quarterback,' Rhule said Friday, May 29, during an appearance on NFL Network. 'I believe in his abilities, I believe in his arm strength, I believe in his accuracy, I believe in his decision-making but, beyond that, I know he's going to make everyone else that much better.'
Huddle Up: Bridgewater went 5-0 as a fill-in starter last season for the injured Drew Brees, but he didn't exactly light up the fantasy scoreboard, averaging 19.9 fantasy points per start. He has some strong weapons to work with in Carolina, but his ceiling projects to be a mid-level QB2 at best.

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.
