Which players could become X-factors for the Carolina Panthers in 2020?

The Carolina Panthers might have plenty of uncertainty surrounding their defensive options. But there is a great deal of excitement regarding what they can do on offense.

They have made some big moves during the free agency period that have enhanced the current group. This is a new era for the Carolina Panthers under Matt Rhule. And they have the weapons to ensure the transition might be a smooth one.

Just how much this new-look roster will be impacted by the lack of time together remains to be seen. Chemistry might be an issue in the early going. But if they can somehow become a cohesive unit early then the sky is the limit.

Rhule has a good record of turning things around during his time at Temple and Baylor. So there is real cause for encouragement in that sense. The Panthers do have a tough-looking schedule that is bound to come with ups and downs. But the relative lack of expectations in Carolina next season is something the group can definitely use to their advantage.

While the team has big names such as Teddy Bridgewater, Christian McCaffrey, and DJ. Moore. They also boast some other intriguing options that could become X-factors for the franchise.

These players come into the campaign as role players. But they all have the scope to be real difference-makers. Here are four offensive X-factors for the Panthers going into 2020.
