The Carolina Panthers have elevated rookie Bryce Young to the No. 1 quarterback spot, a move coach Frank Reich said Thursday is "the next step" in the top pick of this year's draft, becoming the Week 1 starter.
These are all semantics at this point. The only thing we were worried about was Young coming in and having a terrible camp, and it doesn't look like he is trending in that direction. He should be drafted as the Panthers' QB1, which puts him on the radar in 2QB and SuperFlex leagues.
Robinson was mostly buried on the Chiefs depth chart before having a mini breakout with the Ravens last year, catching 50 balls for 500 years. Given the Rams current wide receiver room, this is likely the best case scenario for Robinson. He makes for an interesting option as a last round dart throw, particularly if you have already have Matthew Stafford.
In the article, running backs coach David Walker was quoted as saying, “No one has earned a seat in that room yet, and they’re all going to earn their seats from what we do now until August whatever, whenever that third preseason game is,” Walker said. “So that’s the good thing and they know it. That’s been communicated to them.”
This makes the presumed "backups" more intriguing in fantasy drafts, as they are basically free at the moment. Roschon Johnson is coming off the board as the RB46 in the 13th round, while D'Onta Foreman is the RB51, in the 14th.
