Our 2022 Fantasy Football Projections will be viewable by both position and team.
Below you will find our 2022 fantasy football projections for the Carolina Panthers.
Baker Mayfield: Two seasons ago, Mayfield threw for 3,563 yards, 26 touchdowns and only eight interceptions. Things were much different last year, as Mayfield tried to play through injuries that should have kept him on the sidelines, but now the former No. 1 overall pick gets a chance at a fresh start in Carolina. While Matt Rhule hasn't declared the team's regular-season starter, it appears to be his "job to lose."
Sam Darnold: Although still young (recently turned 25), Darnold's career stats through four seasons are not good -- 59.8%, 3.3 TD%, 3.2 INT% and 6.5 Y/A. Even if there really were an open quarterback competition with Mayfield, it's unlikely that Darnold would come out on top.
Matt Corral: Corral slipped to the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, but he throws with a quick release and has the mobility to extend and make plays. It's unlikely that Corral will make starts as a rookie, barring injury, until the Panthers are out of playoff contention.
Christian McCaffrey: McCaffrey has played just 10 games over the past two seasons combined. In those 10 games, he has averaged 115.9 scrimmage yards, 5.4 receptions and 0.8 touchdowns per game. Before that, CMC led the NFL in scrimmage yards (2,392), touchdowns (19) and touches (403) in 2019 and became the third player in NFL history to reach the 1,000-yard rushing and receiving milestones in the same season. If his health cooperates, he has as high of a ceiling and floor as any running back.
D.J. Moore: Moore set career highs in both targets (163) and receptions (93) in 2021. While he's been limited to a degree by poor quarterback play, he has exceeded the 1,100-yard mark in three consecutive seasons and I have him projected to finish above that mark in 2022 as well.
Robbie Anderson: Anderson's second season with the Panthers was a huge disappointment as his production plummeted. He finished with 53/519/5 in 17 games in 2021 after posting a 95/1,096/3 line in 2020. While he suggested he could retire, the addition of Baker Mayfield should only increase his odds to bounce back from last year's dismal performance.
Tommy Tremble: Carolina's tight ends posted modest numbers in 2021, but Tremble led the position group in fantasy production as a rookie. Although he's off the radar in single-TE leagues, the second-year tight end should post even better numbers in 2022 and once again lead the team's position group in production.
