Carolina Panthers Bryce Young (21.5%) and Houston Texans QB C.J. Stroud (19.9) did not share much in common during their rookie seasons, but the top two picks in the 2023 NFL Draft ranked first and second, respectively, in the league in bad-throw percentage last year, according to Pro Football Reference.
Huddle Up: It is hard to know what to make out of this stat because so much of what Stroud did was right and so much of what Young did (or could not do given his situation) was wrong. Matthew Stafford ranked third at 19% and Jordan Love was sixth at 17.5, so the stat itself does not appear to be overly damning from a fantasy perspective. What it suggests is that Young and Stroud are still inexperienced and have plenty of room to grow. Stroud should be considered a strong QB1 option in drafts, while Young should be expected to take a huge step forward with a quality supporting cast around him this year.

Carolina Panthers QB Bryce Young is getting more comfortable entering his second NFL season, according to WR Adam Thielen. ""You can tell, Bryce's demeanor in the building -- he's just more comfortable, right? And you don't realize it when you start getting to be a veteran guy, just because you forget about those times," said Thielen.
Huddle Up: Young is coming off a pretty rough rookie season, but the Panthers have done a solid job adding protection and weapons around him. Even so, he's a QB2 option until he proves he has more upside.

Carolina Panthers QB Bryce Young is positioned to "take a big jump" in his second season, according to QB Andy Dalton. "We're going to see Bryce do things he didn't do last year just because of the experience," Dalton said. "We're already seeing it right now."
Huddle Up: Young struggled through a rough rookie season, and while a year of experience should help, the Panthers aren't exactly loaded with weapons on offense. Even in leagues that require two quarterbacks, Young could struggle to contribute.

Carolina Panthers QB Bryce Young is optimistic about the team's impending hiring of Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dave Canales as their new head coach because of his strong track record with quarterbacks, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Young struggled during his rookie season but will look to improve his play under Canales. Fantasy players can monitor his progress during the offseason but probably will only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in 2024.

Carolina Panthers QB Bryce Young (back) was a full participant at practice Friday, Jan. 5, and carries no injury destination for the Week 18 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Young was a full participant all week and should be considered a QB2 option for the finale.

Carolina Panthers QB Bryce Young (back) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 4.
Huddle Up: Young has struggled during his rookie season and has only three passing touchdowns in the last eight games. He could be a possible starting option in deeper two-quarterback leagues but should be avoided in standard leagues.

Carolina Panthers QB Bryce Young (back) practiced in full on Wednesday, Jan. 3.
Huddle Up: It has been a disappointing rookie campaign for the No. 1 overall pick. Part of that has to do with the rookie's poor play, but he also doesn't have much help around him. The Panthers will be looking for a new head coach in 2024, which gives hope that things will get better. He shouldn't be in lineups for the regular season finale, but Young is a definite hold in dynasty formats.
