The Panthers re-signed K Graham Gano to a 4-year deal. The 26-year-old made 24 of 27 kicks last season, good for a career-high 88.9 FG percentage. He still finished as a middle-of-the-road fantasy kicker, though. There’s no reason to overdraft him this summer.

Panthers K Graham Gano (knee) has been placed on IR. Since the team made the move before final cuts, Gano isn't eligible to return for the 2nd half of the season. That leaves undrafted rookie K Joey Slye atop the depth chart. He connected on 7 of 8 FG attempts this preseason, with his only miss getting blocked. Slye could be a spot-start option this season, but we'd go with a more proven K in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Panthers K Graham Gano will miss the team's preseason finale with a sore knee, according to The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue. It's uncertain if Gano is in danger of missing the start of the regular season, but avoid him in fantasy drafts until the situation clears up.

Update: The Panthers might put Gano on IR, according to NFL Network's Tiffany Blackmon, which would cost him at least 8 games.

The Panthers have placed K Graham Gano (knee) on IR. Chandler Catanzaro will handle kicking duties the rest of the way but isn't a fantasy option with Taylor Heinicke under center.

Panthers K Graham Gano (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Browns. K Chandler Catanzaro will kick in his place. Gano is sitting just 22nd among Ks in fantasy points, so Catanzaro isn’t a recommended Week 14 play.

Panthers K Graham Gano (knee, illness) is active for today’s game against the Bucs. Carolina signed K Roberto Aguayo to the practice squad this week, so there was at least some concern about Gano’s status. He’s a risky Week 8 fantasy play.
