Teddy Bridgewater Expected To Play In Week 12

Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said that he expects quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (knee) to play in Week 12 against the Vikings. Bridgewater returned to practice on Wednesday after sitting out in the Week 11 win over the Lions and appears to be on track to return to the starting gig. P.J. Walker took over the starting duties last week but should revert to a backup role if Bridgewater is active. The Vikings Defense has allowed the 11th-most fantasy points per game to the QB position, so Bridgewater has a chance to be a solid QB2 streamer for fantasy managers in a bind. However, the Panthers offense is expected to be without All-Pro running back Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) for the third straight game.

Christian McCaffrey Not Expected To Play

Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule doesn't expect running back Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) to play in Week 12 against the Vikings. McCaffrey was wearing a non-contact red jersey at practice on Wednesday, but he's been unlikely to play all along this week. The 24-year-old All-Pro will miss his third straight game after coming off a six-week absence for a high-ankle sprain that he suffered in Week 2. The Panthers will play it safe and rest McCaffrey with their bye coming next week. Backup Mike Davis will once again be the featured running back and will have RB1 upside against Minnesota. Those who have been benefiting from McCaffrey's absence for most of the year with Davis will likely have just one more week to use the backup in starting lineups.

Christian McCaffrey To Work In Red Jersey Wednesday

Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) has arrived at practice on Wednesday and will work in a non-contact red jersey. It's progress for McCaffrey, but it was reported earlier this week that he's expected to miss the Week 12 game against the Vikings. The All-Pro running back hasn't been officially ruled out yet, though, so fantasy managers will need to continue checking on his progress in practice this week. McCaffrey, who has played in just three games this year due to shoulder and ankle injuries, could sit out another game with Carolina's bye coming in Week 13. The 24-year-old is on the wrong side of questionable right now. Mike Davis would be in line for a featured role once again if McCaffrey sits, making him a low-end RB1 for fantasy managers.

Christian McCaffrey, Teddy Bridgewater To Practice Wednesday

Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (knee) are both expected to get in some practice work on Wednesday as the team prepares for Week 12 against the Vikings. McCaffrey is expected to miss another game this weekend. However, Bridgewater is on track to play on Sunday if all goes well in practice the rest of the week. Minnesota's D has been a good matchup for quarterbacks all season long, but Bridgewater is a shaky low-end QB2 this week if he plays through his knee injury. McCaffrey still hasn't been ruled out for this weekend, but fantasy managers shouldn't get their hopes up. Mike Davis will be a strong RB2 play if he gets another start as the featured back for Carolina.

Teddy Bridgewater Expected To Practice Wednesday

Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said that he expects quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (knee) to practice on Wednesday. Bridgewater is dealing with an MCL sprain in his right knee and was inactive in the Week 11 shutout win over the Lions. Backup QB P.J. Walker went 24-for-34 for 258 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the start with Bridgewater sidelined. He'd have some low-end QB2 upside against Minnesota's defense if he were to make another start for Bridgewater. Fantasy manager would like to see Bridgewater get in a full practice at some point this week in order to feel comfortable rolling with him as a QB2 if he were return to action on Sunday.
