The Panthers have finalized their 53-man roster, and it includes both kickers who spent the summer competing. Veteran Graham Gano and 7th-round rookie Harrison Butker will apparently both open the regular season with the team. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport also reports that Carolina has been fielding trade offers for Gano. We'll see if they make a move. For now, fantasy drafters might want to steer toward a clearer situation.
The Giants signed K Graham Gano. The 33-year-old missed the entire 2019 campaign with a knee injury but sports a career 82.1% FG conversion rate across 10 seasons. Gano will compete with Chandler Catanzaro for the starting job in New York. Avoid the situation in fantasy drafts until we get a winner.
The Panthers have released K Graham Gano. That leaves the starting job for now to K Joey Slye, who connected on 78% of FG attempts and 87% of XPs last year. Carolina might still bring in competition if Slye struggles in August.
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.
