Snap Counts: 2016-17 Carolina Panthers’ Offense

Snap count totals for the 2016-17 Carolina Panthers — out of a possible 1,110 plays.

 

QUARTERBACKS

 

Cam Newton — 1,023

Derek Anderson — 86

Joe Webb — 16

 

Besides the No. 8 pick, a smaller silver lining of the down season is it saved Newton from some wear and tear. Including the postseason, he played 261 more snaps last year.


RUNNING BACKS

 

Jonathan Stewart — 565

Mike Tolbert — 324

Fozzy Whittaker — 308

Cameron Artis-Payne — 84

 

Stewart is averaging 586 snaps per season in two years as the Panthers' workhorse back. From 2012-14, he averaged just 322 plays per season. ... Tolbert's snaps per game dropped from 27.4 in 2015 to 20.3. ... Whittaker saw a 127-snap year-over-year increase while Artis-Payne played 38 fewer snaps than he did as a rookie.


WIDE RECEIVERS

 

Kelvin Benjamin — 802

Ted Ginn Jr. — 688

Philly Brown — 587

Devin Funchess — 493

Brenton Bersin — 63

Damiere Byrd — 11

 

Of all the receivers, Benjamin's return took the most playing time away from Brown, who saw 297 fewer snaps. ... Funchess played the same exact number of snaps as he did in the regular season as a rookie.


TIGHT ENDS

 

Greg Olsen — 1,033

Ed Dickson — 478 

Scott Simonson — 12

Chris Manhertz — 12

 

Dickson's snaps per game fell from 37.2 in 2015 to 29.9.


OFFENSIVE LINE

 

G Andrew Norwell — 1,109

T Mike Remmers — 1,107

G/T Trai Turner — 1,099

T Daryl Williams — 647

C Ryan Kalil — 505

Tyler Larsen — 357

G Chris Scott — 295

C Gino Gradkowski — 235

T Michael Oher — 233

G David Yankey — 21

T Donald Hawkins — 6

 

Remmers, who didn't miss a single play last season, was edged out by Norwell for most snaps. ... Williams was in for just 83 plays as a rookie, so the Panthers hope a 564-snap increase will help his development.
