Carolina Panthers QBs Cam Newton and P.J. Walker will continue to rotate, according to head coach Matt Rhule. Newton played 47 snaps to Walker's 15 in Week 14.
Huddle Up: While neither player is independently worth anything in fantasy football, it's rarely a good sign for receiving options to see quarterback musical chairs. Avoid both players in all formats.

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton has returned to the Week 14 game after he was replaced by QB P.J. Walker earlier in the game.
Huddle Up: It seems like the team is using both Newton and Walker in the offense, so there is a chance that Newton leaves the game again. Fantasy players probably should avoid both of the Panthers quarterbacks.

Carolina Panthers QB P.J. Walker completed 22-of-29 passes for 167 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 10 against the Arizona Cardinals and he ran for six yards.
Huddle Up: Walker gave way to Cam Newton in goal-line packages in the first quarter, so he didn't really get a chance to cash in for touchdowns. The plan worked, however, as the Panthers picked up a stunning 34-10 road win. It wouldn't be surprising to see Walker give way to Newton more, and even see the latter start in Week 11 against the Washington Football Team.

Carolina Panthers QB P.J. Walker went 24-for-34 for 258 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Detroit Lions in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Walker started in place of Teddy Bridgewater, but it is not known if Bridgewater or Walker will start in Week 12. Fantasy players can monitor the situation during the week but may want to look for other options.

Carolina Panthers QBs Will Grier and P.J. Walker are getting even reps this week in practice based on the lack of preseason work, head coach Matt Rhule said Wednesday, Nov. 18. The team is still trying to determine who is the No. 2 quarterback behind QB Teddy Bridgewater, who is a question mark to play in Week 11 against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Neither Grier nor Walker would be worth playing in any fantasy league this week if Bridgewater is unable to play against the Lions. On the flip side, however, if Grier or Walker get the nod the Detroit Lions DST could be worth a flier if you're looking for a bye-week replacement or streaming option in Week 11.
