Bryce Young523.8340.53692.82213.6253214.71.33237.92
Andy Dalton33.421.8232.

Bryce Young: Young is obviously Carolina's quarterback of the future, but it was nice to see Frank Reich name him the starter (over Andy Dalton) early in the process. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 draft is always composed, processes information quickly and thrives when extending and making plays outside of structure.


Miles Sanders216.5995.95.8532.6243.31.4183.72
Chuba Hubbard117.3504.43.0523.2170.71103.41
Raheem Blackshear47.4194.31.351398.10.546.84

Miles Sanders: Sanders set career highs in rushing last season with 259 carries for 1,269 yards and 11 touchdowns. Through four NFL seasons, he has averaged 5.02 yards per carry. With Jalen Hurts under center, Sanders (and Philly's running backs) weren't targeted often, but he had 50 receptions as a rookie in 2022. There's a good chance that he's more involved as a receiver than he was over the past several seasons.


D.J. Chark486773.7000113.9
Adam Thielen53.4586.83.9000108.78
Jonathan Mingo45.3553.43.300097.79
Terrace Marshall Jr.31.7412.12.300070.86
Laviska Shenault Jr.23.5253.21.510.155.60.5154.69
Shi Smith7.192.20.600016.37

D.J. Chark: Chark will compete with Adam Thielen, Terrace Marshall Jr. and Jonathan Mingo for targets, which means that Chark has a real shot to lead the team's wide receivers in fantasy points in 2023. Chark has appeared in only 28 games over the past three seasons, but he had a breakout age-23 season before that with 73/1,008/8 in 2019.

Adam Thielen: After spending his entire career in Minnesota, Thielen begins anew with the Panthers and a rookie quarterback in his age-33 season. Thielen has scored 30 touchdowns over the past three seasons, and he has a minimum of 67 catches and 710 yards in each of those seasons.

Jonathan Mingo: The Panthers used a top-40 pick on Mingo, a big receiver (6-2, 220) who had a strong showing at the combine (4.46 40-yard dash, 39.5" vertical jump and 22 bench press reps). While the college production wasn't elite as a four-year starter, he's a good route runner who uses his size and strong hands to win in contested-catch situations.


Hayden Hurst51.6510.23.100095.42
Ian Thomas13.6135.40.900025.74
Tommy Tremble12.7129.50.900024.7
Giovanni Ricci6.562.80.400011.93

Hayden Hurst: Hurst has missed four games and averaged only 8.5 yards per reception (or less) in back-to-back seasons, but he averaged a career-high four receptions per game last season. Given the relative uncertainty at wide receiver, it's possible that Hurst comes close to his averages from last year.
