Is it time to seriously consider Carolina should use its first pick to draft a franchise quarterback to develop behind Teddy Bridgewater?
Absolutely. And after the Panthers on Monday fired general manager Marty Hurney, it's even more likely that a new regime will want to start fresh.
The story said the Panthers currently hold the fourth selection of the 2021 draft at 4-10. If they lose their final two games against Washington and New Orleans -- as the oddsmakers likely will predict -- they’ll have their highest pick since 2011, when they drafted Cam Newton first overall, the story said. The story speculates the Panthers will have a shot at BYU’s Zach Wilson, North Dakota State’s Trey Lance or maybe Alabama’s Mac Jones to build the offense around, assuming Trevor Lawrence and Josh Fields go before they pick.
CAR QB Teddy Bridgewater - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. New Orleans Saints
Teddy Bridgewater has had his moments this season, but he’s largely been limited to a streaming option in good matchups in most fantasy leagues. He had 197 yards, a touchdown and a pick last week in a tough game against Washington. He does have five rushing touchdowns, giving him some upside, but predicting when those are going to occur is dicey at best. This week, he faces a Saints defense that ranks third in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks, so it’s way too risky to trust him during championship week. Look elsewhere.
