Shark Bites

Carolina selected Alabama QB Bryce Young with the first pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. Young’s size (5’10, 204 pounds) garnered most of the attention pre-draft. Just note that he missed only one game in two starting seasons. (Young suffered an A/C joint sprain in his right shoulder last October.) The former five-star recruit wins both inside the pocket and out with an uncanny ability to feel pressure and deliver an accurate ball. Across two starting seasons, Young racked up 8,200 yards, 79 TDs, and only 12 INTs. In Carolina, he’s the heavy favorite to start Week 1 over Andy Dalton. A WR corps of Adam Thielen, D.J. Chark, and Terrace Marshall Jr. isn’t ideal for year one. But we’re optimistic about the QB’s long-term prospects.

Recent Shark Bites

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 QB Bryce Young is returning to practice Wednesday after missing Week 3 with an ankle injury. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that it appears Young "has a good shot to return to action" for Sunday's game against the Vikings. We wouldn't plan to use Young outside of deep superflex leagues -- and would even try to lean away from him there. Young averaged just 4.2 yards per pass attempt across the first two games, with a 2.8% TD rate that matched his INT rate. If Young can't play, Andy Dalton would be at least a little more attractive. He threw for 361 yards, 2 TDs, and 0 INTs at Seattle last week.

The Athletic's Joe Person writes that the Panthers don't expect QB Bryce Young to miss "more than a game or two" with his ankle injury. We already know that the rookie will miss Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks, and it sounds like there's a chance he also misses Week 4's meeting with the Vikings. We'll keep you updated on his recovery. QB Andy Dalton is a capable backup who might even prove to be a short-term upgrade over Young for this Panthers offense.

Panthers QB Bryce Young (ankle) is not expected to play vs. the Seahawks this weekend, the team announced. That'll leave QB Andy Dalton under center, which might actually be an upgrade at this point. Young has struggled mightily so far, completing 59% of his passes and averaging 4.2 yards per attempt. Dalton played well for New Orleans last year, finishing with a 67% completion rate and 7.6 yards per attempt. Hopefully you're not relying too much on this passing game in fantasy lineups, but WR Adam Thielen and TE Hayden Hurst remain fine lower-end plays.
