WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Cameron Artis-Payne | Free Agent RB

The Panthers released Cameron Artis-Payne.

Payne has spent the last four years with Carolina since being drafted in the fifth round in 2015, and perhaps he'll land back with the team in the near future. If not, other teams are likely to be interested in the 29-year-old running back.

The Panthers have re-signed Cameron Artis-Payne.

Artis-Payne, who turns 29 this summer, saw just 22 touches last season behind workhorse Christian McCaffrey, but it's possible he has a more sizable workload as the team looks to keep their feature back fresh in 2019. Through four seasons with the Panthers, Artis-Payne has averaged 4.2 yards per carry on 118 attempts. Carolina could also add a rookie compliment to McCaffrey that would push the Auburn product to No. 3 duties.

Cameron Artis-Payne handles 18 touches in Week 17 win.

Artis-Payne rushed 16 times for 56 yards and a touchdown, also adding two receptions for two yards. The Auburn product essentially worked as the starter with Christian McCaffrey handling one drive before calling it a day, and Artis-Payne's season finishes with 22 touches for 84 yards and one score. The former fifth-round pick will enter unrestricted free agency.

Cameron Artis-Payne gets two touches in Week 16.

Artis-Payne carried one time for seven yards and caught one pass for 13 yards against the Falcons. Artis-Payne is not a fantasy option to conclude the regulars season unless the Panthers sit Christian McCaffrey.

Cameron Artis-Payne handles one touch in loss to the Browns.

Artis-Payne rushed once for five yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game. Carolina's backup will likely see a similar workload next week against the Saints in what amounts to a must-win.

Cameron Artis-Payne gets one carry in Week 12.

Artis-Payne gained one yard on his lone attempt against the Lions. CAP looks like the clear No. 2 with C.J. Anderson gone, but he isn't a fantasy option right now.

Cameron Artis-Payne | Free Agent RB

Cameron Artis-Payne handles five touches in Week 17 loss.

With Jonathan Stewart inactive, Artis-Payne rushed five times for 16 yards. CAP had just 18 attempts this season, but he turned them into an impressive 95 yards and a score. He probably won't be much of a factor in the postseason behind Stewart and Christian McCaffrey.

Cameron Artis-Payne gets one carry in Week 12.

CAP didn't gain any yards on his lone carry versus the Jets. He's not a fantasy option at the moment.

Cameron Artis-Payne runs for long touchdown in Week 10.

The Panthers dominated, particularly in the second half, in their 45-21 victory over the Dolphins—and Artis-Payne received more work in this game than he did all season. CAP carried seven times for 68 yards and a touchdown in the Monday night win, with the touchdown coming on a 43-yard run where he broke through a poor tackling attempt at the second level of the defense. Artis-Payne doesn't get enough work to be a fantasy option, but it's good to see him contribute on offense when given several carries—he's shown in the past that he can.

Cameron Artis-Payne handles five touches in Week 8 win.

Artis-Payne rushed four times for eight yards and caught a two-yard pass, and it was his first time making the box score this season. CAP was given a chance to convert two goal-line opportunities in the first quarter, but he was stuffed on both before Jonathan Stewart entered the game and converted. Artis-Payne would only be a fantasy option if Stewart were to suffer an injury, and even then, Christian McCaffrey would likely assume the lead role between the tackles.

Cameron Artis-Payne scores twice in third preseason game.

Artis-Payne again ran with a lot of energy and burst this week, and he looked fast. He had nine carries for 37 yards and the two touchdowns in the exhibition against Jacksonville. CAP will mix in behind Jonathan Stewart and Christian McCaffrey this season.

Cameron Artis-Payne scores in preseason Week 2.

CAP had five carries for 70 yards and a touchdown against the Titans. The touchdown came from one-yard out, but Artis-Payne also had a 43-yard run in the game. Artis-Payne won't have much fantasy value unless something happens to Jonathan Stewart or Christian McCaffrey.

Cameron Artis-Payne | Free Agent RB

Cameron Artis-Payne gets six carries in Panthers preseason game.

CAP had six carries for 22 yards. He did break a 20-yard run, but didn't find much room besides that. Artis-Payne should be good for a roster spot after proving he can contribute over his first two NFL seasons.
