Cotchery caught 5-of-6 targets for 73 yards in Thursday's win over the Cowboys. The Panthers used a conservative game plan on offense and didn't take many chances downfield, which allowed Cotchery to enjoy plenty of volume on the intermediate routes. He fell two yards short of the end zone on a 12-yard reception late in the second quarter to deprive his fantasy owners of a touchdown, but those in deeper leagues who may have been forced to start Cotchery still have to be happy that he delivered his second-highest yardage output of the season.
Cotchery caught four of six targets for 57 yards in Sunday's win over Washington. The veteran finished second on the team in targets and yards in the blowout, eclipsing the 50-yard mark for the second time in three games. Despite the recent success, Cotchery is but one of many pieces of a patchwork Carolina receiving corps, and he carries minimal upside from week to week. Next on the schedule is a Thanksgiving matchup with the Cowboys.
Cotchery caught three of his six targets for a season-high 82 yards in Sunday's game against the Packers. The veteran led the team in receiving Sunday and finished second in targets. However, his modest usage and the balanced nature of the Carolina attack have him outside the category of weekly fantasy starters. A matchup with the Titans awaits in Week 10.
Cotchery (ankle) caught 2-of-4 targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 27-23 win at Seattle. Cotchery played for the first time since Week 2, and didn't do much, other than a 14-yard catch at one point. He might produce better numbers as he gets healthier, but Greg Olsen, who caught 7-of-11 targets for 131 yards and a touchdown Sunday, remains Cam Newton's top target. Next week, the Panthers will take on the Eagles at home.
Panthers wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery (ankle) is active Sunday in Seattle. Cotchery has fully recovered from a high-ankle sprain sustained in Week 2. Cotchery will likely be among Cam Newton's top three targets.
