Carolina Panthers 7-8
Welcome to the NFC South Week and the Carolina Panthers 2014 Fantasy Highs and Lows. Each week we will go division by division breaking down each team.
There was nothing amazing about this team last year. They might have made it through to the second round of playoffs, but struggled to get to the Superbowl with some key holes in their team.
Greg Olsen, Mr. Consistent, was great averaging 8 fantasy points, which is all we want from our Tight Ends in fantasy. The Panthers know when they have a good thing. They signed Olsen to a three-year deal $22.5 million for an extension through 2018.
Rookie Kelvin Benjamin was defiantly a Rookie but finished in the top 20 receivers. That really doesn’t say much since he was the only receiver on the team unlike the other two Rookies that had more fantasy points (ODB and Mike Evans) that had to fight for targets. Still Benjamin had over 1000 yards and 9 touchdowns.
My low was DeAngelo Williams. A lot of people drafted him but by the end of the season not many people owned him. He only played in 6 games this season, had a total of 263 yards and zero touchdowns. He was quickly replaced by Jonathan Stewart who wasn’t that bad. He had three games over 10 fantasy points in the last five weeks of the season. Obviosely the Carolina Panthers agreed with me because Williams for cut. He has since signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers for a two-year deal for $4 million.
