Panthers RB Jordan Scarlett looks to be team's RB2

Cameron Artis-Payne was released Friday during the Panthers' final cuts.

The Panthers upped the ante in April, selecting Jordan Scarlett (5-foot-10, 209 pounds) in the fifth round out of Florida with the hope he had the all-around skills to give starter Christian McCaffrey a break without losing much in terms of production. They also added undrafted back Elijah Holyfield out of Georgia (Update: Holyfield was released after initially making the 53-man roster.)

Fantasy Impact: 

It's worth nothing Scarlett is the team's RB behind McCaffrey, even though McCaffrey played on 91.3% of the snaps last season. The story said to truly be a backup to McCaffrey, Scarlett will have to become an effective pass-catcher, something he didn't do much and struggled with while at Florida.
