WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Fozzy Whittaker | Panthers RB

The Panthers placed running back Fozzy Whittaker (knee) on injured reserve.

Unfortunately, Whittaker suffered a torn ACL on a non-contact, on-field drill in Monday's training session. Last season, Whittaker wasn't a big part of the offense but he provided good depth. Whittaker does appear to be in good spirits, at least, as he posted on Instagram a guarantee that he will be back on the field. We wish him luck in his recovery and look forward to seeing him in 2019.

Fozzy Whittaker gets one carry in Wild Card Round.

Whittaker gained three yards on his lone carry in the playoff loss to New Orleans. He should be back in Carolina as someone that'll chip in behind Christian McCaffrey and others in the backfield.

Fozzy Whittaker handles two touches in Week 17 loss.

Whittaker rushed once for no gain and caught a nine-yard pass. The 28-year-old finishes the regular season with seven carries for 18 yards and a 5/47/1 receiving line. He won't be much of a factor offensively for Carolina in the playoffs.

Fozzy Whittaker leaves game with an apparent leg injury.

Whittaker suffered the injury on a carry in the first quarter versus the Eagles. He was carted off but gave a thumbs up and it doesn't look too serious, but he probably won't be returning to this game. Whittaker had one carry for -3 yards before leaving.

Fozzy Whittaker scores in Week 4.

Whittaker caught all three targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in the win over the Patriots. The touchdown was a 28-yarder on a misdirection screen pass where Christian McCaffrey was used as a decoy and Whittaker caught and basically walked into the end zone as his blockers didn't even really need to block anyone. Whittaker isn't a reliable fantasy option, but he's a real-life contributor for Carolina.

Fozzy Whittaker carries three times for 23 yards in exhibition against the Titans.

Whittaker probably won't get as much playing time this season after the addition of Christian McCaffrey and probably won't have much fantasy value. But he'll try to contribute to the Panthers offense in real life.

Fozzy Whittaker gets a couple carries in preseason opener.

The fifth-year back had two carries for ten yards. Whittaker is looking to keep a nice role on offense, even with the addition of electric rookie Christian McCaffrey.

The Panthers re-signed Fozzy Whittaker to a two-year contract, according to Joe Person.

Whittaker will continue in a backup role behind Jonathan Stewart and possibly another back the Panthers will add in the draft. He shouldn't be drafted in 2017 fantasy drafts.
