The Panthers have fired HC Ron Rivera. He's been with Carolina since 2011, compiling a 76-63-1 record with 4 playoff appearances. But the Panthers went 7-9 last year and are currently sitting at 5-7. Secondary coach Perry Fewell will take over as interim head coach, OC Norv Turner will move into an assistant role and QB coach Scott Turner will serve as OC for the final 4 games of the season. We're not expecting any tangible fantasy impacts from the moves.

Panthers HC Matt Rhule said Monday that he'll have to see Wednesday how far along RB Christian McCaffrey is in his recovery from a shoulder injury. Rhule called him "week to week," according to Joe Person of The Athletic. Mike Davis has started the past 2 games in McCaffrey's absence and would get another run at Minnesota this Sunday if McCaffrey remains out.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter adds that McCaffrey is "considered unlikely" to play Sunday.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game against the Lions. We’ll see if he can make it back for Week 12, but it’s worth noting that Carolina has a Week 13 bye. Don’t be surprised if CMC is held out until Week 14. RB Mike Davis has struggled as the Panthers’ lead back lately but gets Detroit’s 32nd-ranked RB defense on Sunday.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) is "unlikely" to play against the Lions on Sunday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It's worth noting that Carolina still has a bye coming up in Week 13, so it's possible McCaffrey is held out through that. He's obviously still worth stashing on fantasy benches. RB Mike Davis has floundered over his last 4 starts, totaling just 212 yards and 1 TD.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Bucs. He reportedly has a good chance to return for Week 11. Mike Davis gets another game as Carolina’s feature back but is more of a RB2 in fantasy lineups in a negative matchup.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that there's a "realistic chance" Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) is able to play against the Lions next weekend. It sounds like the 2nd opinion on that injured shoulder came back favorable. We'll keep an eye on McCaffrey next week. RB Mike Davis gets another start vs. the Bucs this Sunday.
