18. Carolina Panthers

2020 Record 5–11

Key additions: Denzel Perryman, Hasson Reddick, AJ Bouye, DaQuan Jones, Morgan Fox

Fantasy Football Starers: Hasson Reddick, Brian Burns, Shaq Thompson, Denzel Perryman, Jeremy Chinn, Jaycee Horn

Best Position Group: DBs

The Carolina Panthers were aggressive in free agency, bringing in edge rushers, and a new commander in the interior, LB Denzel Perryman. DL Hasson Reddick will be expected to put pressure on QBs and contain the left edge on rushing attempts. Rookie DB Jaycee Horn could become a true shut down corner, helping the pass rush with improved coverage.

The Panthers also added depth with free agency. The message was clear, they would improve their defense. They have potential to get into the playoffs and are a strong candidate to finish second in the NFC South. DB/LB Jeremy Chinn will be a large part of their success. He had a monster game with mid season, and kept the momentum rolling. Chinn will be lined up on all three phases of the defense, and is an early draft pick in most IDP formats.

Veterans DL Brian Burns and LB Shaq Thompson will have help and are arguably on the best defensive rosters of their career. There numbers should maintain or go up with them not being the focal point of offensive coordinators.

Some might not believe the Carolina Panthers are better than several perennial playoff teams mentioned, but the Panthers are team that set a goal and invested heavily to improve the defensive side of the ball. There should be several impact plays, almost half of their defense is worthy of a roster spot in IDP formats, and they are a starting D/ST most weeks.
