Panthers' Luke Kuechly: Records eight tackles in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuechly registered eight tackles during Sunday's 31-24 loss to Atlanta.

Kuechly's high-level performance puts to rest any concerns regarding his knee injury heading into the Week 2 divisional contest. A healthy Kuechly at 100 percent should bode well for Carolina moving forward.

Panthers' Graham Gano: Flawless in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano made a 54-yard field goal on his lone attempt in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Falcons. He also made all three of his extra-point tries, registering six points in total.

Gano missed his only attempt from 50-plus yards last season, so he started this term on the right foot by converting his first opportunity Sunday. Through two weeks, Gano has netted 10 points while not missing a kick.

Panthers' Torrey Smith: Finds end zone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith caught three of seven targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Falcons.

Smith found room in the red zone to haul in a three-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter. He also went for a 26-yard gain on the day, and only Christian McCaffrey and Devin Funchess were targeted more. The available looks in the wake of Greg Olsen's (foot) absence could benefit Smith, but with Jarius Wright, D.J. Moore and Ian Thomas also vying for opportunities, Smith is one of a few complementary pieces in the team's passing attack.

Panthers' Jarius Wright: Plays key complementary role in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright brought in five of seven targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in the Panthers' 31-24 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

The veteran receiver played a key role in the Panthers' passing attack with Greg Olsen (foot) out of action, posting the third-highest reception and receiving yardage totals on the afternoon. Wright has now seen 12 targets through his first two games, certainly an elevated figure for a wideout expected to fill a No. 4 role. He'll look to continue his productive start against the Bengals in Week 3.

Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Excels as pass catcher in Week 2 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCaffrey rushed eight times for 37 yards and brought in 14 of 15 targets for 102 yards in the Panthers' 31-24 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

McCaffrey's passing game usage was extreme, even by his lofty standards. The absence of Greg Olsen (foot) certainly played a part in his usage, as did a game script that saw the Panthers trail throughout the second half. The Panthers undoubtedly want to get McCaffrey more involved on the ground as well, but in games such as Sunday's they'll clearly maximize the running back's talents through the air as needed. McCaffrey will look to continue the solid start to his season versus the Bengals in Week 3.
