Panthers' Derek Anderson: Gets action in blowout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson completed two of seven passes for 17 yards in Sunday's 34-13 loss to the Saints.

Anderson featured for Carolina's final two drives, with the Panthers trailing 34-13 with four minutes remaining when he entered the already-decided contest. Although starter Cam Newton threw three interceptions, Anderson only figures to play in similar blowout situations as long as Newton is healthy.

Panthers' Derek Anderson: Struggles in Tennessee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson played the whole first half in Saturday's preseason Week 2 loss to the Titans, but threw for just 88 yards with an interception while completing 7-of-12 passes.

Anderson's offense ran just five plays in his first three drives, sandwiching a three-and-out between a Devin Funchess fumble and an interception. He picked it up from there and ended up leading Carolina to 10 points in the second quarter thanks mostly to contributions from running back Christian McCaffrey. Anderson will be relegated back to a reserve role once Cam Newton (shoulder) returns to action.

Panthers' Derek Anderson: Throws touchdown in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson completed four of five passes for 76 yards and a touchdown in Wednesday's preseason opener against the Texans.

Anderson started while Cam Newton (shoulder) was sidelined for Carolina's first exhibition tilt, and the veteran proved why he's considered one of the more reliable backups league-wide. After putting the Panthers in field-goal range on his first drive, Anderson finished his night with a perfectly placed 23-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin on his second possession in charge. While Newton will obviously be the man once the regular season rolls around, the Panthers are in safe hands with Anderson when needed.

Panthers' Derek Anderson: Still backing up Newton
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson is listed as the No. 2 quarterback on the Panthers' unofficial depth chart for Wednesday's preseason game against Houston, ESPN's David Newton reports.

With Cam Newton (shoulder) presumably out, Anderson figures to get the start in what likely will be a brief appearance from the first-team offense. The Panthers didn't bring in any serious competition for the backup job this offseason, showing confidence in Anderson's ability to handle the role for a seventh straight year.

Panthers' Derek Anderson: Starts two games
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Anderson completed 36 of 53 passes for 453 yards, two touchdowns, and five interceptions in five games played, including two starts, this season.

Anderson played extensively in two games this season, beginning in Week 4 against the Falcons after Cam Newton was knocked out with a concussion, and then by starting with Newton sidelined the following game. Unlike when Anderson successfully filled in for Newton last season, he threw two interceptions in both of those games this term, and then threw a pick on his lone attempt after starting Carolina's Week 13 loss to the Seahawks, when Newton was benched for the first series of the game due to a dress code violation. Despite those mistakes, the 33-year-old is generally viewed as one of the more reliable backups in the league, which figures to remain his role as he enters the final year of his current contract with the Panthers in 2017.
