Shark Bites

Panthers WR Terrace Marshall (back) returned to practice on Tuesday. He wound up missing about two weeks. Marshall projects as the No. 4 in a healthy Carolina WR corps, but WR D.J. Chark is still sidelined with his hamstring injury.

Recent Shark Bites

Panthers WR Terrace Marshall led the team in targets (10) and receptions (9) in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. He tallied 56 yards (6.2 per catch). Marshall got a boost from rookie WR Jonathan Mingo being out but still trailed WR Adam Thielen by 10 routes and D.J. Chark by 11. We wouldn't go chasing Marshall in fantasy, especially with Mingo set to return soon from his concussion and the Panthers reportedly shopping for a WR, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Panthers WR Terrance Marshall is expected to miss "a few weeks" with his back injury, according to Fox Sports Radio's Sheena Quick. We're about three-and-a-half weeks away from the start of the regular season, so Marshall seemingly has a shot to be ready for Week 1. But it looks like he'll open the season as Carolina's No 4 WR, behind Adam Thielen, D.J. Chark , and Jonathan Mingo.

Panthers HC Frank Reich said Monday that WR Terrace Marshall hurt his back in practice and is getting checked out, according to Joe Person of The Athletic. We'll see whether it's anything serious, but Marshall has already been trending toward landing no higher than fourth on the WR depth chart.

New Panthers WR Adam Thielen told the team website that he's been "so impressed" with teammate WR Terrace Marshall Jr. both on and off the field. "He's been so great in the meeting room, and then being on the field with him, there's a lot of potential there," Thielen said. New HC Frank Reich added that Marshall showed improvement late last season, the WR's second in the pros: "I think it's just a matter of him getting more play time and making those plays consistently. I think we saw that last year with the reps that he got, the catches that he had, the big plays that he had, that he shows the capacity to kind of be a big play guy." Marshall will have to compete for those reps with imports Thielen, D.J. Chark, and Jonathan Mingo this summer. The good news for his fantasy outlook is that Marshall's disappointing first two seasons has him lingering on the board until the very end of best ball drafts. He's far from a must-add, but there's no real risk to taking some shots on Marshall in that range. See where he and all the new Panthers teammates sit in our 2023 fantasy football rankings.

The Athletic's Joe Person highlighted WRs Terrace Marshall and Jonathan Mingo in the "Stock Up" section of a recent article. The Panthers re-made their WR corps this offseason under new HC Frank Reich, trading away D.J. Moore and adding Mingo, Adam Thielen and D.J. Chark to Marshall and Laviska Shenault. It seems like playing time is up for grabs heading to training camp later this month. We'll keep you updated on the situation.
