Bryce Young Appears To Be More Comfortable In Year 2

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Adam Thielen said on The Rich Eisen Show that it's been an awesome offseason for the team, and second-year quarterback Bryce Young just looks "more comfortable." Thielen went on to explain that Young is just more immersed in the offense heading into his second season in the NFL and that the two have gained valuable chemistry on and off the field. It was a whirlwind for Young leading up to his first NFL campaign, which couldn't have gone much worse. The 22-year-old former Alabama product is already on his second head coach in two seasons, but there's nowhere for him to go but up in 2024. The Panthers added receiver Diontae Johnson to give Young some help in the passing game. Not many fantasy football managers are going to want anything to do with Young after what they saw in 2023, but he's not a bad low-end QB2 target in superflex leagues with upside.

Bryce Young Impressing During Offseason Workouts

Carolina Panthers second-year quarterback Bryce Young, who looked lost in his rookie campaign in 2023, has impressed head coach Dave Canales at offseason workouts. Canales loves the way Young has picked up an offense that has helped Baker Mayfield, Russell Wilson and Geno Smith to career-best seasons. "He's doing fantastic with it," Canales said Monday after the first full day of voluntary workouts. "So, for us the formations are pretty vanilla so we can just teach the concept we want out of each route, the depth, the footwork we want." Young said having just Canales' voice in his ear has been "super important" after a rough rookie season in which he ranked 29th out of 30 QBs in total QBR (33.4). It will be hard for Young to be much worse in his sophomore season in 2024, and the Panthers also added some playmakers around him via the draft and trade market, but he'll still merely be a low-end QB2 with upside in fantasy leagues.

Panthers Focused On Building Team, Not Necessarily Around Bryce Young

The Carolina Panthers want to make the 2024 draft about a larger point, rather than anything as granular as finding weapons for quarterback Bryce Young after he struggled mightily in his rookie season in 2023. "I think it's not about surrounding Bryce with great players; it's about building a great team, and then Bryce can just do his part of it," new head coach Dave Canales said. Even if the Panthers aren't specifically just looking to add weapons for Young, they'll surely need to bolster what was a terrible offensive line and running game. Carolina already traded for receiver Diontae Johnson this offseason and spent some money to upgrade the O-line. "It's not about getting playmakers for Bryce, it's about getting playmakers for our team," general manager Dan Morgan said.

Bryce Young Needs Weapons On Offense

The Carolina Panthers went 2-15 last year and fired both their head coach and general manager. They have all kinds of needs this offseason, but The Athletic's Joe Person thinks that their biggest priority should be getting young quarterback Bryce Young some help in the passing game. DJ Chark Jr. ranked in the bottom 10 in the league in average separation and catch percentage, while Jonathan Mingo had the fifth-worst catch percentage (50.6) in his rookie campaign. Adam Thielen had a 1,000-yard season, but the 33-year-old can no longer stretch defenses at his age. It all caused Young to stand in the pocket waiting for someone to get open before eventually getting enveloped by the pass rush. Young has plenty to work on himself, but helping him take the next step in Year 2 will start with surrounding him with better playmakers.

Bryce Young Struggles In Finale

Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young completed 11 of his 18 passes for 94 yards and added two carries for 24 yards and a lost fumble in a 9-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 18. Young capped off a disappointing rookie season by failing to throw for a touchdown for the sixth time in the past eight games. The signal-caller finishes the year with 2,877 passing yards, 11 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions in 16 games. He will hope to bounce back in his sophomore season next year, although he is looking like a low-end QB2/high-end Qb3 for fantasy purposes heading into the offseason.

Bryce Young A QB3 In Week 18

Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young (back) is listed without an injury designation after injuring his back during a Week 17 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Young practiced fully throughout the week and should be fine to start in the regular-season finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Buccaneers have been a favorable matchup for quarterbacks this season as they are allowing the fifth-most fantasy points per game to the position. That being said, Young has underwhelmed in his rookie season and is hard to trust as anything more than a high-end QB3 in Week 18.

Bryce Young A Full Participant In Wednesday's Practice

Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young (back) was banged up in the Week 17 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars and entered the medical tent for a brief check-up. However, he did not miss a snap and was a full participant in the first practice leading up to Week 18. The Panthers will face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are looking to clinch the NFC South on Sunday. It's good news that Young's back is fine, and he doesn't appear at risk of missing Week 18, but he should not be on the fantasy or DFS radar in the last week of the regular season. Young has failed to produce double-digit fantasy points in seven of his last eight starts. With Jonathan Mingo (foot) on Injured Reserve, he's not likely to end that trend in this spot.

Bryce Young Struggles In Week 17 Loss

Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young completed 19 of his 32 passes for 112 yards and an interception while adding a two-yard rush in a 26-0 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 17. He spent a short time in the medical tent tending to a back issue following a first-quarter sack but was cleared to return and ultimately didn't miss any time. Young struggled to capitalize on what was a favorable matchup against a leaky Jacksonville pass defense as he failed to throw a touchdown for the fifth time in his past six contests. The signal-caller will cap a disappointing rookie season in Week 18's home matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Bryce Young A QB3 In Week 17

Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young is coming off his best game of the season as he passed for 312 yards and two touchdowns in a loss to the Green Bay Packers. Young will look to build on that promising performance in a road matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 17. The Jaguars represent a plus matchup for Young as they are allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. Despite the encouraging matchup, Young hasn't shown much upside this season and should be treated as a high-end QB3 in Week 17.

Bryce Young Throws Two TDs In Week 16

Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young completed 23 of his 36 passes for 312 yards and two touchdowns while adding four carries for 17 yards in a 33-30 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 16. Young's multi-touchdown game broke a streak of four straight games without a touchdown pass while the 300-yard game was the first of his young career. Both of Young's touchdown passes went to D.J. Chark Jr. in the contest. Young's solid game is a sliver of hope for the future in what has been a trying season for the Panthers. He will look to build on his Week 16 performance next week against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Bryce Young A QB3 In Week 16

Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young has now failed to throw a touchdown pass in four straight games and has just nine touchdown passes on the season. He will look to get things going at home against the Green Bay Packers in Week 16. The Packers have been decent against quarterbacks in 2023, allowing the 18th-most fantasy points per game to the position thus far. Young hasn't shown much of a fantasy ceiling in his rookie season, leaving him as a QB3 as gamers head into the semifinals in the fantasy playoffs.

Bryce Young Held To 167 Scoreless Yards In Week 15 Win

Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young completed 18 of his 24 passes for 167 scoreless yards while adding nine yards on four carries in a 9-7 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 15. Despite leading the Panthers to just their second win of the season, Young has now gone four straight games without a passing touchdown. On the bright side, Young did manage to avoid turning the ball over in the contest. Young will look to find the end zone for the first time since November 19 in Week 16 against the Green Bay Packers.

Dec 17, 2023 4:20 PM EST


Bryce Young Not A Strong Option In Week 15

Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young completed just 36.1% of his passes last week and has gone three straight games without a touchdown pass. The rookie will look to turn things around in Week 15 against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons have been generous to opposing quarterbacks this season as they are allowing the 10th-most fantasy points per game thus far. This game has an extremely low 33.5-point over/under and there isn't likely to be much scoring against the run-first Falcons. Young has not shown enough upside to be trusted in starting lineups this weekend, except as a desperation QB2 in superflex formats.

Bryce Young Throws For 137 Yards In Loss To Saints

Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young completed 13 of his 36 passes for 137 yards and no touchdowns in a 28-6 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 14. He added three carries for 40 yards and a lost fumble in the lopsided loss. Young's struggles continued as he has now gone three consecutive games without throwing a touchdown while completing just 36% of his passes. The rookie signal-caller also continues to take too many hits as he was sacked four times. Young will look to regroup heading into a Week 15 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.

Dec 10, 2023 4:43 PM EST


Bryce Young A Low-End QB2 In Week 14

Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young has gone two straight games without throwing a touchdown pass and has just nine total touchdown tosses on the season. He will look to get back into the end zone in Week 14 in a road game against the New Orleans Saints. The Saints have been solid against opposing quarterbacks this season as they are allowing just the 22nd-most fantasy points per game to the position thus far. Young has not shown much upside in his rookie season and should be left on benches in all but the deepest superflex leagues this weekend.

Bryce Young Throws For 178 Yards, Interception In Week 13

Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young completed 15 of his 31 passes for 178 yards and an interception in a 21-18 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 13. Young struggled yet again in the loss as he has failed to top 194 passing yards in five straight games and has not thrown a touchdown pass in two consecutive contests. A low-end QB2 for fantasy purposes, Young will look to bounce back against the New Orleans Saints in Week 14.

Dec 3, 2023 10:23 PM EST


Bryce Young A Low-End QB2 In Week 13

Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young has failed to throw for more than one touchdown in a game since Week 5 against the Detroit Lions. He will look to break that streak in Week 13's road matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It has been a disappointing rookie season for Young, who has just nine touchdowns and eight interceptions in 10 games. The Buccaneers are vulnerable against the pass as they are allowing the fifth-most fantasy points per game to the position but Young hasn't shown enough to be trustworthy in fantasy yet. He settles in as a low-end QB2 heading into Week 13.

Panthers Remain Confident In Bryce Young

The Carolina Panthers fired head coach Frank Reich on Monday after a 1-10 start in his first year with the organization, but they remain confident in their investment in rookie quarterback Bryce Young with the first overall pick in this year's draft despite his play not living up to that billing to this point. "We are totally confident in that pick," owner David Tepper said. The shakeup at head coach midway through his first NFL season won't make life any easier on Young as he tries to put forth positive momentum to close out the 2023 campaign. The 22-year-old also doesn't have many playmakers on the offensive side of the ball in Carolina. Young has completed 61.7% of his passes for 1,877 yards, nine touchdowns and eight interceptions in his first 10 NFL starts. He has a chance to put up some decent numbers this weekend in a divisional clash with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Bryce Young Throws For 194 Yards In Week 12

Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young completed 18 of his 31 passes for 194 yards and added three carries for 23 yards and a lost fumble in a 17-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 12. Young's recent struggles continued in his team's Week 12 loss as he has now gone six straight games without throwing for multiple touchdowns while also failing to throw for over 194 yards in four consecutive contests. The rookie also took four sacks in the loss while the Panthers only were able to gain 258 yards of total offense. Settled in as a low-end QB2 in fantasy moving forward, Young will look to bounce back in Week 13's road matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Bryce Young A Low-End QB2 In Week 12

Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young (thigh) practiced fully all week despite being listed with a thigh injury on the team's practice report. He is listed without an injury on the team's final game status heading into a Week 12 matchup against the Tennessee Titans. The Titans have been solid against quarterbacks this season as they are allowing just the 18th-most fantasy points per game to the position thus far. Young has thrown just four touchdowns over his past five seasons as his debut season has come with plenty of growing pains. Fantasy gamers should treat Young as a low-end QB2 heading into Week 12's matchup.
