Prediction No. 1: The Carolina Panthers will have three 1,000-yard receivers

The potential is sky-high for the Carolina Panthers with the three wide receivers at their disposal in 2020. D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson, and Curtis Samuel all have the ability to take it to the house on any given down. And putting the trio in Joe Brady’s scheme is a mouth-watering prospect.

Moore is coming off his first 1,000-yard season with the Panthers in 2019. This was despite some inaccurate quarterback distribution from Cam Newton, Kyle Allen, and Will Grier. So there is just no telling what the wideout can achieve with Teddy Bridgewater calling the shots.

This is projected to be a huge year for Moore, who has the scope to be one of the NFL’s best players at the position. Reaching four-figures in yardage should be the minimum requirement for the former second-round pick. And superstardom could await if he reaches his ceiling.

Another notable addition to Carolina’s offense is Anderson, who signed a fully guaranteed two-year deal worth $20 million. This sees the player link up with his former college coach Matt Rhule once again. And although he has yet to reach the 1,000-yard milestone during his career. The player was extremely vocal recently about the lack of consistency at quarterback with the New York Jets playing a big part in this.

The onus will be on Anderson to make these claims true in 2020. And there is nothing to suggest he cannot reach this feat alongside Moore.

Carolina’s wildcard going into the season is No. 3 option Samuel. He is coming off a career year and his stats might have looked even better had signal-callers not missed the receiver multiple times when he was wide open down the field.

Samuel is heading into a contract year, which normally sees an increase in production. If the player can take another leap forward next time around, it gives the Panthers more than a realistic chance of getting three wideouts over the 1,000-yard mark.
