  Panthers | Carolina works out running backs    Fri Sep 24, 09:55 PM

Free-agent RB Ito Smith (Vikings), free-agent RB Dontrell Hilliard (Texans) and free-agent RB BJ Emmons (Raiders) worked out for the Carolina Panthers Friday, Sept. 24.

Footballguys view: With Christian McCaffey (hamstring) out for a few weeks, the Panthers are looking for additional depth. Chubba Hubbard and Royce Freeman should split time with McCaffrey out. We'll see if the Panthers choose to add any of these free agents.

  Panthers | Jaycee Horn likely out 2-3 months    Fri Sep 24, 10:04 AM

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers CB Jaycee Horn (foot) likely has multiple broken bones in the metatarsal area, and surgery is an option. He's likely out two to three months or could miss the rest of the season.

Footballguys view: The Panthers will miss Horn next week against the Cowboys passing game. They haven't faced any top pass offenses yet, so it's not clear whether this defense is going to be a tough out when they aren't playing Jameis Winston or a rookie quarterback. Rashaan Melvin replaced Horn in the starting lineup.

  Panthers | Robby Anderson targeted just twice in Houston    Fri Sep 24, 01:10 AM

Carolina Panthers WR Robby Anderson had one catch for eight yards on Thursday, Sept. 23, against the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Anderson catching one pass in Week 1, even though it was a long touchdown, was a harbinger of his value bottoming out. It's curious because the Panthers signed him to a two year extension with over 20 million guaranteed right before the season.

  Panthers | D.J. Moore has big night    Fri Sep 24, 12:56 AM

Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore logged eight receptions for 126 yards during the team's Week 3 win over the Houston Texans. Moore was targeted a game-high 12 times.

Footballguys view: Moore continues to be the clear #1 receiver and there is no other Panthers downfield passcatcher worth rostering. He suffered a minor injury and left the game briefly, so check on Moore's practice status next week before starting him.

  Panthers | Seventy-nine total yards for Chuba Hubbard    Fri Sep 24, 12:40 AM

Carolina Panthers RB Chuba Hubbard carried the ball 11 times for 52 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 3. He added three receptions (on five targets) for 27 yards.

Footballguys view: Hubbard performed well in relief of Christian McCaffrey and should be the lead back against the Cowboys next week and possibly for a game or more after that. Royce Freeman will be the #2 back. Hubbard is worth a decent chunk of change on the waiver wire next week.

  Panthers | Christian McCaffrey set for MRI after early exit    Fri Sep 24, 12:22 AM

Updating earlier reports, Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) will undergo an MRI to determine the severity of what head coach Matt Rhule referred to as a hamstring 'strain.' Before departing, McCaffrey ran seven times for 31 yards and caught two passes for nine yards against the Houston Texans on Thursday, Sept. 23.

  Panthers | Sam Darnold runs for two scores on TNF    Fri Sep 24, 12:06 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Sam Darnold completed 23 of 34 passes for 304 yards on Thursday, Sept. 23. Darnold also ran eight times for 11 yards and two touchdowns.

Footballguys view: Darnold had some pocket presence issues in the first half, but mostly had an easy time of it against a poor Texans secondary that was missing their best player. Even without Christian McCaffrey, Darnold looks like a streamable QB1 against Dallas next week and he has been a big hit as a cheap QB2/Superflex.

  Panthers | Jaycee Horn has multiple breaks    Thu Sep 23, 11:38 PM

  Panthers | D.J. Moore able to return    Thu Sep 23, 10:57 PM

Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore (undisclosed) was able to return against the Houston Texans Thursday, Sept. 23, after limping off and being checked out by trainers.

Footballguys view: We will check on this during practice next week, but chances are it won't be an issue, especially with the long week of rest. At least there was some good injury news for the Panthers Thursday night.

  Panthers | Christian McCaffrey ruled out    Thu Sep 23, 09:11 PM

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) will not return against the Houston Texans in Week 3 after suffering a hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: McCaffrey's injury will probably at a minimum cost him Week 4 even though there's a long week of rest before the matchup with the Cowboys. A multiweek absence is likely and at this point McCaffrey fantasy teams should feel good if he doesn't go on injured reserve and miss a minimum of three games. Chuba Hubbard was the first back off of the bench and Royce Freeman picked up the slack when Hubbard needed a breather.

  Panthers | Christian McCaffrey good to go for Week 3    Mon Sep 20, 01:46 PM

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (calf) is expected to play his regular role in Week 3 against the Houston Texans after experiencing some cramping in his calf in Week 2, according to head coach Matt Rhule.

Footballguys view: McCaffrey could get a rest day on Wednesday if he needs it. He's the centerpiece of what they do on offense and will remain as such.

  Panthers | D.J. Moore plays well in Week 2    Sun Sep 19, 06:39 PM

Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore caught eight passes for 79 yards and one touchdown against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2. He was targeted 11 times during the game.

Footballguys view: Moore, not former teammate Robby Anderson, has quickly become Sam Darnold's favorite wide receiver. Consider Moore a high floor WR2 going into a creampuff matchup with the Texans.

  Panthers | Christian McCaffrey reaches end zone    Sun Sep 19, 06:35 PM

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed for 72 yards and one touchdown on 24 carries against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2. He also caught five passes for 65 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: McCaffrey has been worthy of the #1 overall pick in PPR leagues but is still putting up floor games because of how often he has been tackled inside the five. He should have a chance to score multiple times next week against the Texans.

  Panthers | Sam Darnold throws for over 300 yards    Sun Sep 19, 06:30 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Sam Darnold went 26-for-38 for 305 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Darnold was red hot early and had no trouble with the Saints defense that made Aaron Rodgers and the Packers look feeble last week. He'll get the bottom dwelling Texans defense next week.
