Every year we give our premium content members a team-by-team, player-by-player look at the NFL season that was. The coverage will be in-depth, but because the Dynasty Capsule series begins immediately after the season, we won’t use it to discuss free agency or the draft. Come see us in early May once Mr. Irrelevant is off the board for another 32-article series giving you the same detailed discussion you’ll see below.
Buckle up dynasty fans, because you’re about to be reminded why our motto is, “There is no off-season.”
The Panthers finished last in the NFC South with a 5-11 record in 2019. It was the second straight losing season, leading to the in-season dismissal of longtime coach Ron Rivera. Enter Matt Rhule for the 2020 season.
Dynasty owners have to be excited about their shares of stocks in Carolina. There are a lot of young skill position players with plenty of value and potential. The future is bright.
Cam Newton (ADP: 159.67, QB20)
The veteran's status is cloudy at best. Due $21,100,000 for 2020, the Panthers can cut Newton and save $19 million in cap while only suffering a $2 million dead money hit. With just $32,687,733 in cap space entering 2020 and two young signal callers with potential on the roster, a trade or release seems the most likely outcome (data courtesy of Over the Cap).
