Fantasy football predictions for Carolina Panthers players in Week 14.

The Carolina Panthers will attempt to get back in the win column this Sunday in Charlotte against the Denver Broncos.

After two weeks, the Carolina Panthers should have definitely put their last disappointing loss against the Minnesota Vikings in the rearview mirror. However, the Broncos are coming off a tough defeat against their division foe, the Kansas City Chiefs. Both of these teams have had below-average offensive production this season, but for different reasons.

Carolina has been without their best offensive weapon, Christian McCaffrey, for all but three games. Without him and a reliable pass-catching tight end, the team has struggled against the league’s better defenses, particularly in the red zone.

Offensive coordinator Joe Brady has also drawn criticism from some of Carolina’s fanbase for questionable play calls in key situations.

On the other hand, Denver has two running backs that could each start on most teams in the NFL, a talented group of young wide receivers, and a young, ascending, tight end, Noah Fant.

The Broncos’ fatal flaw this season has been the inconsistent play of their second-year signal caller, Drew Lock. Through nine games, the former Missouri star has thrown for 1,918 yards, nine touchdowns, 13 interceptions, and an abysmal completion percentage of 55.4.

There’s still time for Lock to turn things around. But for now, it seems like the Broncos won’t reach their full potential with Lock behind center.

Sunday’s home matchup should be very winnable for the Panthers. Here’s a look at how Carolina’s playmakers will perform in fantasy this week.
