Panthers' Jason Reese: Signs with Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reese signed a contract with the Panthers on Sunday.

Reese spent the past few months with Tampa Bay after signing as an undrafted free agent. The Missouri product will look to catch on as a depth tight end and special teams player with Carolina in 2018, and he'll have a chance at the practice squad in the event he doesn't make the Week 1 roster.

Panthers' Torrey Smith: Gets the start against Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith got the start in Friday's preseason game against Miami, catching his only target for a 12-yard gain.

The Panthers opened with two wide receivers and two tight ends, starting Smith, Devin Funchess, Greg Olsen and Ian Thomas. The 29-year-old wideout ended up playing just 10 snaps, as Carolina unsurprisingly allowed other receivers -- including first-round pick D.J. Moore -- to mix in with the first-team offense alongside Funchess. Though he may keep his spot as the nominal starter, Smith is likely to share snaps and targets with Moore, Jarius Wright and Curtis Samuel throughout the regular season.

Panthers' Greg Olsen: Held to one catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olsen caught one of three targets for five yards in Friday's preseason win over the Dolphins.

Olsen also got a bit of run in Carolina's preseason opener, finishing without a catch on one target. He hasn't been impressive from a statistical perspective, but his usage supports the notion that he hasn't had any issues with the foot injury he dealt with last year. Joseph Person of The Charlotte Observer believes Olsen has looked like his usual self during training camp, moving fluidly and catching the vast majority of passes thrown to him. The Panthers improved their wideout group this offseason, but the 33-year-old tight end is probably still the best bet to lead the team in targets.

Panthers' C.J. Anderson: Works behind McCaffrey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson gained 39 yards on eight carries and nine yards on two catches in Friday's preseason game against Miami.

Anderson got his first carry with 4:29 remaining in the second quarter, at which point Christian McCaffrey had already piled up 120 yards on nine touches, including a 71-yard rushing score. Panthers coach Ron Rivera has been clear about his desire to get McCaffrey more touches this season, and Friday's game wasn't encouraging for the idea of Anderson matching Jonathan Stewart's 2017 mark of 13.2 carries per game. There should still be room for Anderson to contribute, but it does seem the Carolina backfield will primarily be McCaffrey's show.

Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Breaks free for long score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCaffrey had five carries for 92 yards and a touchdown along with four catches for 28 yards on five targets in Friday's preseason game against the Dolphins.

McCaffrey was barely touched on a 71-yard touchdown scamper, showing what can happen when excellent speed meets terrible defense. He also had a reception for 18 yards and a pair of nine-yard carries, thoroughly dominating the early workload before C.J. Anderson got involved with five minutes remaining in the first half. Anderson finished with eight carries for 39 yards and two catches for nine yards, playing until midway through the third quarter. It was an encouraging night for anyone invested in McCaffrey; less so for those with stock in Anderson.
