I'm starting to sound like a broken record with my sleeper selections so instead I'm going to give a full run down on the Panthers fantasy prospects this weekend. If you are still in it this is a big week for you. Either its your championship week or the semi-finals so no taking flyers this week. My advice is to stick with the girl you took to the dance. But if you are forced to make a tough decision this week regarding a Panther then consider this.
QB Cam Newton and WR Steve Smith are automatic starts every week. Newton ran for 3 TDs in the first meeting and Smith is 3rd in receiving yardage in the league.
RB Jonathan Stewart is a good play this week as he loves to run over the Bucs. He should get 60 to 80 yards and a TD.
RB DeAngelo Williams is probably the best 'sleeper' pick of bunch this week. He has scored 4 TDs in the Panthers last four games. He won't get a ton of yardage but he could score once or even twice.
With QB Josh Freeman back in the huddle I think the Bucs will give the Panther defense plenty of fits and are therefore not a good play.
K Olindo Mare might be a good play this week...if your kicker blew his ACL out last week. He should get plenty of chances this week and make a few of them.
Though he remaining Panther WRs Brandon LaFell and Legadu Naanee had good games against the Bucs earlier this season they are not consistent enough to play this week. The Panthers will certainly focus on running the ball giving both players about 3 or 4 targets max this game. That is not what you want when your season is on the line.
