Fantasy football predictions for Carolina Panthers players in Week 16.

We’ve finally arrived at championship week in fantasy football. On a personal note, I only participated in one (12-team) league this year, finishing with the best regular-season record and will compete for my league’s championship this weekend. If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’re also in the final, so take a moment to congratulate yourself. If you drafted Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey with the top pick and you’re still in the mix, double congrats to you.

In reality and fantasy, this season has been a roller coaster for the Panthers. It’s been challenging to predict which members of this club will stand out each week. Each player/group has had their moments of good, bad and ugly and we will certainly be addressing it.

When the Panthers’ season comes to end in two weeks, there will be a lot of questions to answer.

Who will be the next general manager? Where will the Panthers land in the 2021 NFL Draft order and who should they pick? Is Teddy Bridgewater the quarterback of the future? Will the team acquire any free agents and will they re-sign Taylor Moton or Curtis Samuel?

No one can deny that some of the building blocks are currently on the roster and the coaching staff is solid. With Tom Brady and Drew Brees in the twilight of their careers and the Falcons possibly rebuilding, the division could be up for grabs as early as next season. In 2021, you have to think this franchise’s fortunes will only get better.

Going into championship weekend, here’s a recap of every player’s 2020 fantasy season and how they’ll perform in Week 16 at the Washington Football Team and former Carolina head coach Ron Rivera.
