Panthers' Kawann Short: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (hand) suited up for practice Monday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Short was also spotted without a cast on his left hand. Ranked as the No. 3 defensive tackle by Pro Football Focus last year behind Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh, Short's full recovery guarantees his starting position. Having recorded 24.5 sacks over the last three seasons, the 28-year-old enters the 2018 campaign as an elite player at his position.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Another outstanding campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short finished the 2017 regular season with 49 tackles (27 solo), 7.5 sacks, two fumbles forced and one fumble recovery across 16 games.

Short continues to put up excellent numbers for an interior defensive lineman, evidencing just why Carolina awarded him a five-year, $80 million contract last offseason. For reference, only three defensive tackles posted more sacks than Short this season, yet none of them totaled more tackles. With an average of 53 tackles along with a combined 24.5 sacks over the last three seasons, the 28-year-old is undoubtedly one of the best players in the NFL at his position.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Notches 1.5 sacks Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short compiled five tackles, 1.5 sacks and one forced fumble Sunday against the Buccaneers.

Short's stellar performance comes one week removed from being blanked across the fantasy stat line in Week 15 against the Packers. This kind of inconsistency can be difficult for fantasy owners to deal with in the midst of fantasy championships, especially against Matt Ryan, who has been sacked on just 4.5 percent of his dropbacks, ranking eighth in the league in said category.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Makes two sacks Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short had three solo tackles and two sacks in Sunday's victory over the Vikings.

Getting to Vikings quarterback Case Keenum twice in one day is quite the accomplishment for Short, as Keenum boasts the second-best sack percentage in the league (3.58 percent). With a Week 15 matchup against another mobile quarterback in the Packers' Aaron Rodgers (collarbone), Short could struggle to repeat the two-sack performance.

Short surprisingly led the Panthers in stops, setting a season high in the process. Through 10 weeks, Short now boasts 32 tackles, four sacks and a forced fumble.
