The Carolina Panthers continue their run through the NFC North this week with a road trip to Minnesota. After beating the Lions with backup P.J. Walker last week, Teddy Bridgewater returns to action this Sunday. That factor and a generous Vikings pass defense leaves you with several fantasy football options among Carolina’s wide receivers.
Fantasy Football analysis: Panthers WRs Robby Anderson, Curtis Samuel, D.J. Moore
Moore has been on fire over the last two games. He caught seven passes on 11 targets last week with Walker under center, recording 127 yards. He had 96 yards the week before that with Bridgewater at QB. He’s topped 90 yards in six of his 11 games this season. He’s a good WR2 this week.
Samuel had 70 yards and a touchdown last week, a nice bounce back from his eight-yard effort in Week 10. He had 105 yards and a touchdown the week before that, and he now has three scores in his last four games.
Anderson has slowed down lately. He had just 46 yards last week, and failed to break 30 the week before that. He’s probably the odd man out in this trio.
Minnesota’s defense has allowed receivers to score 17 times this season, and we’ve seen some monster efforts against them from individual players this year. The Panthers don’t have a true stud receiver like a Davante Adams or Julio Jones, but they’re getting in done with a committee of second tied guys.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Curtis Samuel and D.J. Moore. Sit Robby Anderson.
