Philly Brown likely to make Panthers' roster

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Philly Brown "should make the team," the Charlotte Observer's Jonathan Jones says.

What It Means:

If he does, that leaves at most two spots for Stephen Hill (knee), Brenton Bersin, Kevin Norwood, and Damiere Byrd. Hill was reportedly showing well last offseason before tearing his ACL, and appears to have an edge on a roster spot. Unless Kelvin Benjamin, Devin Funchess, or Ted Ginn suffers an injury, there is not going to be much fantasy value to be found in this lot.

We still think there's upside for Brown this year, as our algorithms project him for 42 catches for 648 receiving yards and 3.53 touchdowns in 2016. He's our 57th-best wide receiver for fantasy purposes.
