NFL Free Agency Fantasy Fallout: Panthers Moving On From Cam Newton With Teddy Bridgewater
Whether the Carolina Panthers are reloading, 1 thing is for certain; They will not seem like the 2019 variant. Greg Olsen has been substituted by Ian Thomas. If nothing else, this is intriguing. I will get to Anderson beneath, but let us begin with the way I felt about Bridgewater when this has been declared.
Filling in to Drew Brees, Bridgewater finished 67.9percent of his passes and also posted a quarterback rating of 99.1. While we do not know just what the Panthers offense will look like, we still anticipate it’s going to be somewhat like New Orleans with a great deal of short area goals. This is logical, since Bridgewater and Brees equally rated in the bottom of the league concerning average thickness of goal in 2019.
In case you were planning to design a group to for Bridgewater’s abilities, then it might have Christian McCaffrey and D.J. Moore onto it. Both are phenomenal following the grab and ought to elevate Bridgewater’s play beyond his ability level.
Obviously, the concept of a short-area crime makes the purchase of Anderson more intriguing. For the majority of his career, Anderson was a low-volume receiver using big-play ability. He has never attained 120 goals but the 1 year he awakened 110 he had been a top-20 receiver at Fantasy. Anderson fits well contrary Moore, but it’ll be interesting to find out what this implies for Curtis Samuel.
The goal reveal picture remains somewhat fuzzy, but I anticipate McCaffrey and Moore to every see near 24 percent of their group’s goals with Anderson as the next alternative at 19%. There is room for an Ian Thomas breakout, however when it happens that is very likely to squeeze Samuel out. I will draft McCaffrey from the initial round and Moore at the next, but everybody else is going to be a late-round choice in the top.
Here are the remainder of my upgraded 2020 projections to the Panthers at March 24:
