Carolina Panthers WRs

  • Grade: B+

It has been a season of memorable highlights from the Carolina Panthers’ wide receiver weapons in 2020 so far. They appear to be exactly as advertised and Joe Brady has found the right sort of formula to put them in the best possible positions to succeed over the last two weeks.

Robby Anderson is arguably the signing off the offseason. The former Temple standout was Carolina’s second most expensive free-agent pickup behind Teddy Bridgewater and he has quickly emerged into the team’s No. 1 option.

This was a role that was expected to be filled by D.J. Moore, who has been solid if not spectacular during the early stages of the campaign. His chemistry with Bridgewater is getting better, but this is something that has hampered his production at certain stages of the season.

The same can be said of Curtis Samuel, who also endured a slow start before showing signs of life against the Cardinals. His ability to make plays all over the field has been used with mixed success so far, but if he can build on a positive outing in Week 4, then it is another explosive weapon who can make a real difference.

light. More. Who is on the Carolina Panthers’ Mount Rushmore?

The Panthers haven’t used the likes of Seth Roberts, Pharoh Cooper, and Brandon Zylstra much. All three are capable of making an impact with more targets, but the impending arrival off the injury list of Keith Kirkwood is another element that shouldn’t be overlooked.
