Russini: WR Ted Ginn signing with the Saints

WR Ted Ginn is signing with the New Orleans Saints per sources.

Fantasy Impact:

Ginn finished the season as the #48 WR (PPR) after finishing #33 the year before. Even with Kelvin Benjamin back, Ginn’s targets remained remarkably consistent; he saw 95 targets in 2016 after getting 97 targets in 2015. Still one of the fastest receivers in the league, Ginn is being brought to New Orleans to stretch the field since it looks like Brandin Cooks is on his way out of town. The Saints’ three starting receivers each saw at least 104 targets, so Ginn could post similar (or better) numbers in 2017, provided he enjoys a smooth transition.

Panthers WR Ted Ginn (not injury related) missed practice Friday. Ginn should be fine for Monday night. He’s more intriguing than Kelvin Benjamin since he’s fully healthy and is unlikely to draw Josh Norman in coverage.

Coach Ron Rivera didn’t just say he wanted three series out of Panthers QB Cam Newton and the first-team offense. He said he wanted three "good" series. Whether that means Rivera is willing to risk the NFL MVP and other starters past that remains to be seen.

The starters typically don’t see extensive playing time until the third preseason game. Rivera didn’t expand on what he meant by "good," but you can bet he’ll want to see more out of the running game.

The Panthers rushed for only 81 yards in their preseason opener at Baltimore, and 39 of that total came from third-string quarterback Joe Webb (22) and starting wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. (17). Starting running back Jonathan Stewart didn’t play, so look for him to get a few carries. But most of the focus will be on second-year back Cameron Artis-Payne, who had only 10 yards on five carries against the Ravens.

Panthers still want to spread ball around

The question now is how the Carolina offense will look with the 6-foot-5 Kelvin Benjamin back in the mix with emerging star Devin Funchess, Ted Ginn Jr. and the rest of a group that overachieved in 2015.

There's no doubt that Benjamin will provide an upgrade. General manager Dave Gettleman said it’s like having an extra first-round draft pick.

Cam Newton grew as a quarterback when he was forced to spread the ball among a receiving corps that had no star. This camp could be about resisting the temptation to lean on Benjamin, which Newton often did in 2014, when the first-round pick out of Florida State had 73 catches for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact:

Banjamin is back in our rankings as a lower-end WR2. We still project a nice season for him with a 74-1,008-8.2 line. Based on ADP, it looks like Benjamin is going before he should in drafts, likely because owners speculate a little less spreading around of the ball. However, that doesn't appear to be the goal of the offense this season.

Panthers WR Ted Ginn (knee, questionable) missed practice Friday and is questionable for Week 19. Ginn should be good to go for a tough matchup with Seattle.

Jonathan Stewart won't play Week 17

Saturday, January 2, 2016, 12:35pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Carolina Panthers will try to wrap up home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs in Sunday's regular-season finale against Tampa Bay without starting running back Jonathan Stewart.

Stewart was ruled out on Friday with a sprained foot that sidelined him the past two games.

The Panthers (14-1) also will be without backup running back Fozzy Whittaker and possibly wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr., who is listed as doubtful.

Fantasy Impact:

Mike Tolbert likely will get the start at running back, but look for rookie Cameron Artis-Payne to carry a heavier load, the story said. Artis-Payne is more of an every-down back. He has rushed for 108 yards on 19 carries the past two weeks.

Friday, January 1, 2016, 6:26pm

Panthers WR Ted Ginn (knee, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 17. The doubtful tag indicates Ginn will not play, so owners should make other plans. Corey Brown and Devin Funchess both get a bump, and even Jerricho Cotchery is worth a look in PPR formats.

Wednesday, December 30, 2015, 6:13pm

Panthers WR Ted Ginn (knee) did not practice Wednesday. Ginn played through the injury last week, so he should be good to go in Week 17.
