Carolina Panthers Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2022

Most Recent Shark Bites

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Panthers are signing S Xavier Woods to a 3-year, $15.75 million contract. Woods spent last year starting in Minnesota after 4 years in Dallas (3 as a full-time starter). In Carolina, he'll help solidify a position that has cycled through multiple starters over HC Matt Rhule's 2 years at the helm. Woods can be a solid IDP option, but his 2021 fantasy production checked in well above any of his previous campaigns. So expect regression from last year's finish.

Panthers S Jeremy Chinn is inactive for today's game against the Buccaneers. He sustained an ankle injury in Saturday's practice. DT Derrick Brown is active after arriving questionable with an elbow issue.

The Panthers on Saturday activated DE Brian Burns and LB Shaq Thompson from the COVID list. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports both will play Sunday against the Saints.

The Panthers on Wednesday place EDGE Haason Reddick on the COVID list. The timing figures to knock him out for Sunday's game against the Saints. He joins DE Brian Burns and LB Shaq Thompson there, with backup DE Marquis Haynes also on the list. We'll see if any among the earlier 3 can make it back for the game.

Panthers DE Brian Burns has tested positive for COVID. In addition, the Panthers sent players home Monday after what HC Matt Rhule called a "somewhat significant" number of positives, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. We'll see who else lands on the COVID list ahead of the Week 17 visit to New Orleans. We'll also see whether Burns has time to make it back from the list before Sunday.

Panthers DE Brian Burns (ankle) is active for today's game against the Cardinals. He finished the week with a full Friday practice and should be good to go for IDP lineups.

Panthers DE Brian Burns (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He progressed throughout the week, from missing Wednesday's practice to being limited Thursday and then a full Friday workout. We'll check Burns' status Sunday around 2:30 p.m. ET, when the inactives come out.

Panthers DE Brian Burns left Sunday's loss to the Patriots with right ankle injury. Burns initially left in the 1st quarter after QB Mac Jones tugged him down by the ankle following a Jones fumble. Burns returned from that but later left with an issue in the same ankle. Teammate Haason Reddick said after the game that Burns told him the ankle would be fine, according to ESPN's David Newton.

Panthers LB Shaq Thompson (foot) is active for today's game against the Falcons. He hasn't played since Week 4 because of the foot injury. CB Stephon Gilmore is also off the PUP and set to make his debut for what should be an improved Carolina defense.

Panthers LB Shaq Thompson (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He put in limited practices all week after missing the previous game. It sounds like Thompson expects to be ready, but we'll check his status Sunday morning.

The Panthers have ruled LB Shaq Thompson (foot) out for Sunday's game against the Giants. That leaves Jermaine Carter to lead Carolina LBs in playing time.

Following Wednesday morning reports that the Patriots were releasing CB Stephon Gilmore, the Panthers swooped in to get him for a 2023 third-round pick. The veteran corner must remain on the PUP list through 6 weeks for a quad injury. Beyond that, though, trading for his big contract (about $5.8 million left this year) says that Carolina plans to start Gilmore. That begs the question of whether C.J. Henderson -- acquired from Jacksonville in another recent trade -- will have room to enter the lineup. The Panthers lost CB Jaycee Horn to a foot injury, but Donte Jackson has been holding down the other side. None is likely to be much of an IDP factor, though, so that question doesn't matter too much for fantasy football purposes. Overall, we'd have to say Carolina has enhanced a unit that has started 2021 well.

Panthers LB Shaq Thompson suffered a foot injury in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys and is "expected to miss some time," according to The Athletic. Thompson played 93% of the snaps, so the injury must have occurred late. Jermaine Carter checked in next among non-edge LBs at 66% playing time and figures to lead that group while Thompson is out. Carter becomes a decent Week 5 waiver pickup for IDP leagues.

Panthers HC Matt Rhule said Monday that S Juston Burris will miss a week or 2 with the groin injury he suffered in the Thursday night win over Houston, according to Joe Person of The Athletic. Sean Chandler will fill in while Burris is out. He's a marginal IDP option.

CB Jaycee Horn went to the Panthers with the 8th pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. The son of former NFL WR Joe Horn, Jaycee started 10 of 11 games as a true freshman in 2018. He finished his college career with just 2 INTs across 30 games but defensed 25 total passes -- including 8+ in each season. Horn’s 8 PDs in 2020 came in just 7 games, before he opted out for the final 7. Horn still landed a 2nd-team All-SEC bid for the year. He should quickly grab a starting job in Carolina.

The Panthers have reached a 1-year deal with EDGE Haason Reddick, with $6 million guaranteed and a max value of $8 million. We're a bit surprised that Reddick didn't find more on the open market after more than doubling his career sack total with 12.5 for the Cardinals in 2020. But he lands in Carolina with his college coach (HC Matt Rhule) and likely in an edge rotation with Brian Burns and Yetur Gross-Matos. If this landing spot gives Reddick DE designation for IDP leagues, then it'll be a solid fantasy outcome for him. His arrival can't hurt a defense that posted the 12th-lowest pressure rate in 2020, but Reddick will need to show it was more than a 1-year flash.

Panthers DE Brian Burns (shoulder) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Saints. Marquise Haynes started last week when Burns saw his snaps limited by a knee injury. He figures to see full-time duty this week.

Panthers DE Brian Burns entered Sunday's game with a knee injury that kept him out of the starting lineup and limited his role. He came away from it with a shoulder stinger as well. Burns played 41% of the snaps against Washington and still managed a sack and a pass deflection. We'll see about his outlook for Week 17 against New Orleans.

Panthers DE Brian Burns (knee) is active for today's game against Washington, but Marquis Haynes will start in his place. Limited playing time will obviously lower both the floor and ceiling for Burns. We'd take a shot on Eagles DE Vinny Curry over Burns in IDP lineups. Bills DE Jerry Hughes is another potential alternative.
