Carolina Panthers roster updates from training camp

NFL training camp is underway and rosters will be pared down to the 53-player maximum. We’ll break down the moves as the Carolina Panthers sort out their roster decisions.

NFL training camp is under way and that means news will start flowing from each team. How that news will be distributed in the time of Covid-19 restrictions is still to be seen, but news will get out one way or the other. We’ll take that news and give you our fantasy and betting analysis. And that news and analysis, including roster moves, injuries, all the way to hype videos, will be disseminated right here, on this very page for the Carolina Panthers.

The Panthers will start anew this season, as they have a new coach in Matt Rhule, offensive coordinator in Joe Brady and starting quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater.

High fantasy/betting impact


Low fantasy/betting impact

* Claimed DE Jalen Jelks off waivers — August 17

* Signed WR Tommylee Lewis, TE Andrew Vollert, WR Marken Michel — August 16

* Panthers released K Graham Gano. — July 30

With Gano gone, Joey Slye will be the starting kicker.

* ESPN’s David Newton believes running back Mike Davis “might have the edge” to backup Christian McCaffrey. — Source — July 23

Reggie Bonnafon has some similarities in style to McCaffrey, but Davis would likely be more of a bruiser on early downs. If McCaffrey ends up missing time, we would likely see a committee instead of one back taking all the snapps.
