Panthers more optimistic about QB Teddy Bridgewater than RB Christian McCaffrey

Panthers coach Matt Rhule seems more optimistic that QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) will play Sunday against Minnesota than RB Christian McCaffrey (shoulder). “I would expect Teddy to practice on Wednesday and we’ll take it from there. He was cleared to play yesterday, so I would assume he will be ready to go on Wednesday. Christian, we’ll take it week to week.’’

Fantasy Impact: 

Adam Schefter said Rhule considers Christian McCaffrey week to week, but it is considered unlikely that the Pro Bowl RB will play Sunday vs. the Vikings, per source. If McCaffrey can't go as indicated, Davis would again get the bulk of the workload for the Panthers. Keep in mind the Panthers tend to play it safe with injuries and the team has a bye in Week 13. It's possible McCaffrey doesn't play until Week 14, which could be the start of your league's fantasy playoffs.
