The Panthers fired HC Frank Reich. He didn't even make it a full season in Carolina, going 1-10 in his 11 games. An offensive-minded coach, Reich's Panthers offense sits 30th in yards per game, 29th in points per game, and 31st in offensive DVOA. A poor group of skill-position players didn't help the cause, but Reich did very little to elevate the offense or rookie QB Bryce Young. Special teams coordinator Chris Tabor will finish out the season as interim HC, while OC Thomas Brown takes back over as play-caller. We'll see if the moves lead to any changes in player usage, but don't expect the offense to be noticeably better.

Panthers WR D.J. Chark (elbow) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Cowboys. Chark has been a full-time player when healthy this season but is averaging just 33 yards per game.

Panthers WR D.J. Chark (elbow) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. He's on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Cowboys but would be a weak fantasy play. Chark has topped 42 yards in a game just once all season.

Panthers WR D.J. Chark (elbow) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. the Bears. That leaves Terrace Marshall as the No. 3 WR behind Adam Thielen and Jonathan Mingo. Marshall is certainly in play in one-game DFS contests but would be a desperation season-long fantasy start.

Panthers WR D.J. Chark (elbow) missed practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Thursday night's game vs. the Bears. His absence should elevate WR Terrace Marshall into a top-3 role. When Chark missed Week 1, Marshall ran a route on 96% of Carolina's pass plays and drew six targets for a 15.8% share. He turned that action into just two catches for 23 yards, though, and is really only in play in one-game DFS contests. Chark's absence could mean an extra target or two for WRs Adam Thielen and Jonathan Mingo.

Panthers WR D.J. Chark (elbow) is active for today’s game vs. the Colts. He only got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, so the elbow could certainly be a factor today. Chark would be a high-risk Week 9 fantasy start.

Panthers WR D.J. Chark (elbow) is expected to play vs. the Colts today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Chark only got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, so it's safe to assume that he won't be at 100% today. Chark would be a risky Week 9 fantasy start.

Panthers WR D.J. Chark (elbow) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Colts. He only got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. A very fringey fantasy option to begin with, Chark shouldn’t be in Week 9 lineups. If he’s out or limited on Sunday, it could mean more action for WR Jonathan Mingo.

Panthers WR D.J. Chark (elbow) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That should put him on track to play vs. the Colts this weekend, but we'll see how Chark is listed on tomorrow's final injury report.

Panthers WR D.J. Chark (elbow) did not practice on Wednesday. No word yet on whether he's in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Colts. Chark's absence would likely elevate WR Terrace Marshall into something close to a full-time role.

Panthers WR Adam Thielen posted a team-leading 107 yards with a TD on 10 catches in Week 5 vs. the Lions. Fellow wideout D.J. Chark also found the end zone in the contest, but it’s rookie WR Jonathan Mingo that deserves a shoutout here. Mingo ranked second on the team in targets (7) and posted a season-high 48 receiving yards in the contest. Thielen is the only Panthers’ pass-catcher we’d be excited to start in Week 6 vs. the Dolphins, but Mingo is a name to keep an eye on in redraft leagues.

Panthers WR Adam Thielen snagged 7 receptions for 76 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. He trailed Terrace Marshall in targets (10-8) and catches but led the team in receiving yards. It was Thielen's third straight game with at least 7 receptions, despite two straight QB switches thanks to Bryce Young's ankle injury (and return). Thielen should remain a WR3 option for visits to Detroit and Miami the next two weeks. We'll see whether the team adds anyone significant at the position. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Carolina is shopping for WR help. D.J. Chark managed just 2 receptions for 28 yards on 3 targets against the Vikings.

Panthers WR Jonathan Mingo (concussion) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Vikings. That should leave WR D.J. Chark in an every-down role alongside WR Adam Thielen.

Panthers WR Jonathan Mingo (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Vikings. He remained limited in practice all week, so he still has multiple stages of the protocol to pass through. We’ll look for further updates on Mingo’s status and get Carolina’s inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. D.J. Chark will be Carolina’s clear No. 2 WR if Mingo sits.

Panthers QB Bryce Young (ankle) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll be back under center for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings. Young has mustered just 4.2 yards per attempt so far this season and is just a low-end QB2 for Week 4, despite the plus matchup. Consider Young a slight downgrade from QB Andy Dalton for Carolina's pass catchers.

Panthers QB Bryce Young (ankle) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That should put him on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. Young still has plenty of long-term upside but has struggled so far, completing 59% of his passes at 4.2 yards per attempt. He looks like at least a minor downgrade from QB Andy Dalton.

Panthers WR Adam Thielen racked up an 11-145-1 receiving line in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. Carolina went surprisingly pass-heavy, attempting 58 throws (plus 3 sacks) vs. just 14 rushing attempts. Thielen drew 24.1% of fill-in QB Andy Dalton's pass attempts and produced 40.2% of the receiving yardage. Thielen now has 18 catches over the past two games after a quiet opener. Don't be surprised if he sits among the top 30 wideouts in our Week 4 rankings, for a matchup with his old team, the Vikings. WR D.J. Chark ranked second among Panthers in targets (11) and receiving yards (86) against Seattle. He managed just 4 receptions, though, and did most of his damage on a 47-yard catch-and-run TD. Terrace Marshall posted a 5-35 receiving line on 8 targets, in a game WR Jonathan Mingo left with a concussion.

Panthers WR D.J. Chark (hamstring) is active for tonight's game vs. the Saints. HC Frank Reich said Saturday that Chark could be on a snap count coming off that hamstring injury, so he should only be used as a flier in DFS tournaments.
