2019 Fantasy Football Projections: Carolina Panthers

- Updated: Thursday, July 4th


In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Carolina Panthers.

QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Cam Newton539.7350.83858.925.114.84103.1505.24.12300.32
From 2011 (his rookie season) through 2017, Newton had finished as a top-four fantasy quarterback in five of seven seasons. A shoulder injury slowed and eventually sidelined him down the stretch last season, but Newton was third in fantasy points through Week 13. Having already resumed throwing, Newton has plenty of upside compared to his current ADP with good health.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Christian McCaffrey243.81145.97.3193.2754.95.36266.1
The iron man of NFL running backs, McCaffrey almost never comes off the field and the do-it-all back would have eclipsed the 2,000-YFS mark if he played his normal allotment of snaps in a meaningless Week 17. Breaking Matt Forte's single-season record for receptions by a running back, Run CMC totalled 1,965 yards from scrimmage, 107 catches and 13 total touchdowns in his sophomore campagain. Even though I have Saquon Barkley ranked ahead of him, McCaffrey (or any of the top four backs) have a case to be the first player off the board in fantasy drafts this summer.

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
D.J. Moore63.3892.54.9116.1120.80.48133.67
Including his rushing yards (172), Moore had 960 yards as a rookie but only two touchdowns. A back-end WR2 based on my current projections, Moore has some upside entering his sophomore campaign.
Curtis Samuel48.3589.34.238.677.40.4394.63
Scoring seven touchdowns on just 47 touches in 2018, Samuel exceeded 70-plus yards in three of his final five games last season. While his touchdown rate should regress and he could be fourth in line for targets from Cam, the third-year receiver should set career highs in catches and yards if he can stay healthy.
Chris Hogan25.5362.12.1700049.23
A major disappointment last season, Hogan was unable to capitalize on an early-season Julian Edelman suspension and was essentially a non-factor in New England last year. Projected for six-year lows, 7-11 is now closed.
Jarius Wright33.1357.51.3200043.67
In his first season with Carolina, Wright set a career high in receptions (43). Last year's line (43/447/1) is likely a best-case scenario and he isn't fantasy-relevant outside of the deepest leagues.
Torrey Smith11.1126.51.1100019.31

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Greg Olsen51.4575.74.3700083.79
Now 34 years old and coming off two injury-riddled seasons, Olsen had 27 catches for 291 yards and four touchdowns in nine games last year. I have Olsen projected to finish third on the team in both targets and receptions behind Christian McCaffrey and D.J. Moore, but he could turn in a top-12 performance at a weak position if he's able to maintain good health.
Ian Thomas35.9366.22.1500049.52
Over five December games, Thomas had 25 catches for 246 yards and two touchdowns. With Olsen returning for another season, fantasy owners will likely have to wait another season for a breakout from the sophomore tight end, but he'd immediately become a fringe TE1 if Olsen were to miss time again in 2019.
