Carolina Panthers Fantasy Football News 2021

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.

Panthers DE Brian Burns (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against Washington. That's seems surprisingly optimistic after Burns missed the entire practice week. HC Matt Rhule said early in the week that he didn't like Burns' chances of playing. We wouldn't bet on him being available, but we'll check Burns' status Sunday morning.

Panthers HC Matt Rhule revealed Sunday that DE Brian Burns came away from Saturday's loss at Green Bay with an MCL injury. Burns had an MRI, whose results we haven't yet seen announced. Rhule told the team website that Burns will likely be questionable for the Week 16 visit to Washington, though. We'll see about the edge rusher's status throughout this week.

In addition to WR D.J. Moore, the Panthers have placed WR Curtis Samuel on the COVID list. The timing almost certainly knocks him out for their Week 14 clash with Denver. Other players Carolina has placed on the COVID list include LB Shaq Thompson and DT Derrick Brown. We'll see if the team's outbreak impacts the 1 p.m. ET Sunday kickoff.

Panthers CB Rasul Douglas (ankle) is active for today's game against the Lions. With CB Donte Jackson out, that leaves Douglas, Corn Elder and Troy Pride Jr. as the top 3 corners vs. a Lions WR corps down Kenny Golladay and Danny Amendola.

Panthers CB Rasul Douglas (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. He landed on the injury report as a limited participant Friday after opening the week not listed. We'll check his status Sunday. The team will likely miss CB Donte Jackson (toe), who is doubtful.

Panthers S Jeremy Chinn is active for today's game against the Buccaneers. Chinn missed last week with a knee injury but should be back in IDP lineups today. CB Donte Jackson (toe) is also active. He hit the day questionable.

Panthers S Jeremy Chinn is questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. Chinn closed out the week with a full Friday practice, so he seems likely to return after missing Week 8. We'll check his status Sunday, though.

Panthers DE Brian Burns turned up on Thursday's injury report with a groin issue that limited his participation. HC Matt Rhule said Burns "tweaked" his groin in Wednesday's practice, according to the team website. So the fact that he was practicing at all on Thursday seems like a good sign. Rhule reportedly said he's confident that Burns will play Sunday against the Bucs.

Panthers HC Matt Rhule said Monday he hopes to have S Jeremy Chinn back in the lineup for Week 10. Chinn missed Sunday's loss to the Chiefs with a knee injury but managed 2 limited practices and hit the weekend questionable. We'll watch his participation this week, leading up to Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Panthers S Jeremy Chinn (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Chiefs.

Panthers S Jeremy Chinn (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He missed practice Wednesday but returned for a pair of limited practices. If he's active, we'd start him in a matchup that should keep him busy. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

Panthers CB Donte Jackson is active for today's game against the Saints. He entered the day questionable with a toe injury and still makes for a risky, low-floor IDP play. Carolina will be missing CB Rasul Douglas, who is on the COVID list. Troy Pride Jr. will start in his place. That can only help a matchup that was already positive for Saints receivers.

Panthers S Juston Burris left Sunday's loss to the Bears with a rib injury and did not return. We'll see about his status heading into the Week 7 game at New Orleans.

Panthers DE Brian Burns left Sunday's win over the Falcons early with a concussion. He would up playing just a quarter of Carolina's defensive snaps. Burns did at least notch his 2nd sack of the season. We'll see about his availability for Week 6 against the Bears.
