Carolina Releases Eli Apple Ahead Of Week 8

Cornerback Eli Apple was released by the Panthers on Tuesday after logging 28 defensive snaps during Sunday's loss to New Orleans. Apple made just four tackles over the course of two games with the Panthers, but the team is already set to move on from the former starter, who has spent the four previous years with the Saints and Giants. Injuries have scuttled Apple's performance and availability in 2020, with the team opting for other in-house options moving forward. The Panthers Defense is a middling season-long fantasy option due to their limited nature in accruing sacks (six in seven games), even as they have racked up 10 turnovers in that span. The release of Apple gives little reason for fantasy managers to change their tune about the unit, but the former No. 10 overall pick should likely find a landing spot in the near future.

Eli Apple To Debut For Panthers Defense In Week 4

The Carolina Panthers are activating cornerback Eli Apple (ankle, foot) from the Injured Reserve on Saturday, and the former Giants and Saints corner will make his debut for the team in Week 4 against the Cardinals, according to a source. The four-year veteran and former first-round pick should bring valued experience and depth to one of the youngest defenses in the league, but the Panthers Defense should still remain off all fantasy rosters for the time being, especially against a strong Cardinals offense this week. In a corresponding move for Apple, the Panthers are waiving defensive end Shareef Miller, but he's likely to be re-signed to the practice squad.

Panthers Agree With Eli Apple

The Carolina Panthers agreed to terms on an undisclosed one-year deal with cornerback Eli Apple on Thursday. Apple agreed with the Raiders earlier in free agency, but the Raiders backed out of the deal and put Apple back on the open market. The 10th overall pick in 2016 by the Giants, Apple failed to live up to his draft billing in two-plus seasons in the Big Apple, and he was underwhelming in 15 games for the Saints last year (53 solo tackles, no interceptions, four passes defensed). But with Donte Jackson and Corn Elder currently set as the two starting corners on the outside, Apple should see plenty of playing time for a Carolina secondary with plenty of questions.
