Jerricho Cotchery targeted four times in Carolina debut
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Panthers wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery made his debut with his new club Sunday afternoon against Tampa Bay.

Cotchery was the third option for backup Derek Anderson in the passing game. He came down with an 8-yard reception in the second quarter for his first grab of the day. He caught all four of his targets for 32 yards, averaging 8.0 yards per reception in a 20-14 victory.

Cotchery will likely have Cam Newton under center for a Week 2 home matchup against the Lions next Sunday.

No need to gamble on Jerricho Cotchery Week 1
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Panthers wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery is seeking to establish himself as the team’s No. 3 target in the passing game, behind Kelvin Benjamin and Greg Olsen. He’ll look to start another bounce-back campaign come Week 1 at Tampa Bay.

Cotchery bounced back with 42 catches for 602 yards last season with the Steelers. The most important thing is that he found the end zone a career-high 10 times. He's certainly still finding his role in Carolina's offense, as he was limited to two catches for 13 yards in the preseason.

With Cam Newton's (ribs) status up in the air, Cotchery's role in the passing game becomes even more unclear. The team may rely more on the running game, which could hurt his numbers. Still, unless you’re in an incredibly deep league, you didn't draft Cotchery to be your starting wideout in Week 1. Keep him on the bench at Tampa Bay.

Panthers name top three receivers
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

As expected, Panthers coach Ron Rivera named rookie Kelvin Benjamin and veterans Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant the team's top three receivers, reports the Associated Press. Benjamin continues to look good in camp, especially in the red zone.

Paper predicts roles for Panthers receivers
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Jerricho Cotchery and rookie Kelvin Benjamin will start while Jason Avant works as the third receiver. That's the prediction of how the Panthers will re-stock their receiving corps according to the Charlotte Observer

The paper thinks Tiquan Underwood might have cost himself an opportunity after dropping a lot of passes through the OTAs. Rarely-used receivers Marvin McNutt and Tavarres King don't look like full-time players just yet. The paper suggested Brenton Bersin as a candidate to step into a small role -- the 6-foot-3, 210-pound receiver is a favorite of Cam Newton's and he knows every receiving spot, which the coaches like. 

Carolina's offense figures to use more two-tight end sets with Greg Olsen and Ed Dickson the primary weapons.
