Carolina Panthers News

Kyle Allen, Slated to serve as primary backup

Allen (coach's decision) will serve as the No. 2 quarterback in Thursday's Week 2 matchup against the Giants, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

Analysis: The 25-year-old was a healthy scratch in Sunday's season opener, but he'll step in as the primary backup behind Taylor Heinicke since Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) is expected to be ruled out for Thursday's game. Allen appeared in four games for Washington last year and completed 60 of 87 passes for 610 yards, four touchdowns and an interception.

Joey Slye, Big game in opener

Slye converted all three field-goal attempts and four extra-point kicks in Sunday's 37-21 win over Jacksonville.

Analysis: Slye was added to the active roster from the practice squad because primary kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn (leg) was inactive. His productive 13-point day may be enticing, but unless Fairbairn's injury is significant, it does not mean much for Slye's fantasy prospects for the season.

Damiere Byrd, Limited production in loss

Byrd caught three passes for 19 yards in the Bears' 34-14 loss to the Rams on Sunday.

Analysis: Although he saw just three targets, Byrd played on 52 percent of the snaps, which placed him ahead of Marquise Goodwin (38 percent) in their battle for the third receiver spot. With the Bears offense unable to get much going in the passing game against a tough Rams defense, Byrd's receptions all went for short yardage, but if he continues to see the same percentage of snaps going forward, he could be a useful depth option in fantasy leagues.

Ian Thomas, Makes long reception

Thomas caught one of two targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 19-14 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Thomas opened the third quarter with a long gain and actually played two more snaps than starter Dan Arnold, who managed just a pair of catches for six yards. Although Thomas isn't expected to be much of a factor in Carolina's passing game this season, occasional impact plays like Sunday's grab would keep him in the mix for spare looks.

Terrace Marshall Jr., Makes three grabs in debut

Marshall caught three of six targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 19-14 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Marshall's regular-season debut saw him trail only Christian McCaffrey and DJ Moore in targets, including a couple looks in the red zone. The second-rounder's final stats weren't overly impressive, but after a standout preseason, it's good to see Marshall remain regularly involved now that the games matter. Although fellow wideout Robby Anderson will surely garner more than Sunday's three targets in most games, Marshall's status as Carolina's third wideout gives him decent value going into Week 2's divisional matchup versus the Saints.
