Wide receiver trio

The Carolina Panthers have a starting wide receiver trio that is up there with anything across the NFL. They can hurt an opposing defense in so many ways. And the sky is the limit for them in 2020.

If Teddy Bridgewater can get enough time to go through his progressions, then this should enable all three wideouts to approach 1,000-yards receiving next season. This is an ambitious benchmark for them. But it is one they are more than capable of attaining with consistent quarterback play.

D.J. Moore managed to reach the four-figure milestone in 2019. And this was in spite of some less than stellar play from those under center.

This makes the achievement even more remarkable. Moore was a constant threat on deep or intermediate routes. And the speed out of his cuts was nothing short of phenomenal.

Lining up opposite Moore for the first time will be Robby Anderson. The free-agent pickup from the New York Jets is one of the league’s primary deep threats. And he is someone who has made his presence felt during the initial period of training camp so far.

The No. 3 option heading into the season is Curtis Samuel. Although this might not be the case as the campaign progresses. He is a multi-purpose weapon that is expected to be utilized heavily by offensive coordinator Joe Brady. But there is plenty riding on the former Ohio State Buckeye performing in a contract year.

Bridgewater is going to relish having three reliable targets to go with others who are capable of making plays. So the trio is a definitive strength next season and possibly beyond.
