Joey Slye- Carolina Panthers K

Joey Slye has been fairly frustrating to watch this year. He’s had multiple games where he makes several field goals or PATs, but misses kicks you have to have late in games. This was the case against Minnesota, where the kicker netted a respectable nine fantasy points on two successful field goals and three PATs.

When the team needed it most, Slye shanked a 56-yard field goal that would have won the game.

This projects to be a low-scoring affair, but Slye could be the main source of points for the Panthers against the second-best red zone defense in the NFL.

Who could have predicted this would be a good year for the Carolina Panthers’ defense?

The franchise has clearly put better defenses on the field, but this year’s squad has seen plenty of positives. Standout rookies Derrick Brown and Jeremy Chinn have made a difference, Brian Burns will most likely make his first Pro Bowl, and Shaq Thompson is stepping up on and off the field.

Thompson was recently chosen as the Panthers’ nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year, following in the footsteps of former Panthers legend and WPMOY winner, Thomas Davis.

Unless you play fantasy football with other Panthers fans, there’s a good chance Carolina’s defense is on the waiver wire. As the fantasy playoffs begin in some leagues, I strongly recommend grabbing them this week.

The Broncos are 25th in yards per game, 31st in points per game and Drew Lock is a turnover machine. The Panthers DST’s last two fantasy scores have been 17 and 19 and I think Carolina is poised to score north of 10 again this week.
