Carolina Panthers Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook


Newton Priced Right

After his NFC Offensive Player of the Week performance against the Packers, QB Cam Newton’s FantasyDraft salary is back among the elites. The fourth-most expensive QB, we expect Newton to have a top-four performance against the Titans.


Stewart Again a Great Value

After a slow start to his season, RB Jonathan Stewart’s production is on an upward trend. He’s recording at least 20 carries per game since coming back from the bye. But Stewart is the isn’t even in the top-20 this week in terms of running back salary, so having him on your roster with a low salary of $8,200 will give you lots of higher-end options at other positions.


Olsen Still Over-Priced

TE Greg Olsen had a great game last week but, as we predicted, he was significantly outperformed by lower-priced Titans TE Delanie Walker. With a salary of $12,000, Olsen is the second-most expensive TE on FantasyDraft this week. Tennessee has allowed six touchdowns to opposing tight ends this season, but it will still be a tall order for Olsen to outplay his salary.

Some cheaper options: Kansas City’s Travis Kelce [$9,200] and Benjamin Watson of the Saints [$8,100].


Panthers’ Sleepers

Every week, at least one Panthers wide receiver outplays their low salary. Against the Packers, it was Philly Brown and Devin Funchess. But, like every week, it’s hard to predict which wide receiver it will be. All of them have low sticker prices at least one will be worth a pick, we’re just not sure which one.

Panthers’ Defense

Last week, we didn’t have faith in the Carolina defense Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Man, were we wrong. With a couple of takeaways and five sacks, the Panthers showed they can play with an elite QB.

Although Titans rookie Marcus Mariota is coming of a monstrous week against New Orleans, the Carolina defense should be able to give him fits. Improved offensive line play helped the Titans last week, but if the Panthers can get to Mariota early, they should generate at least one turnover.


Titans’ Offense

While we typically don’t advocate picking players going up against the stout Panthers’ defense, both RB Antonio Andrews [$7,200] and WR Dorial Green-Beckham [$6,300] are cheap and could be potential sleeper picks based solely on volume.

Andrews is the new workhorse back in Tennessee, totaling 20 touches last week. Filling in for the injured Kendall Wright, Green-Beckham received ten targets last week. The 6-foot-6 wideout is a matchup nightmare and even if he’s matched up with Panthers CB Josh Norman, he’ll likely get looks if the Titans get inside the red zone.


Fantasy Sleepers Around the League


Redskins QB Kirk Cousins [FantasyDraft Salary – $10,200]

With close to the minimum salary for starting QBs, Cousins is going up against the Saints’ 32nd-ranked pass defense. Cousins has had a couple of big weeks this season, and this could be another. As a bonus, it seems WR DeSean Jackson is finally fully recovered from an early-season hamstring injury.

Rams WR Tavon Austin [FantasyDraft Salary – $9,600]

St. Louis tries to get their dynamic speedster the ball in every way possible. Despite being listed as a wide receiver, Austin had eight carries last week for 66 yards. He has big-play potential written all over him.

Ravens WR Jeremy Ross [FantasyDraft Salary – $6,000]

Ross has the lowest salary possible for a WR and with Steve Smith out, he becomes Flacco’s No. 2 option. Baltimore’s offense hasn’t been very good this season, but you can’t get any cheaper than Ross.

Titans RB Antonio Andrews [FantasyDraft Salary – $7,200]

As we mentioned, Andrews’ value lies in opportunity. He’s the cheapest starting running back on FantasyDraft and he’ll likely get at least 18 touches this week. Going against a Carolina defense limits his potential, but that’s what makes him a sleeper. If he were playing another team, he’d be a guaranteed play.
