|Jerricho Cotchery has had a few productive fantasy seasons but 2015 wonít be one of them. In his first season with the Panthers in 2014, he only managed to garner 78 targets. Considering the additions the team has made at the position, it is pretty clear the Panthers are just using Cotchery as a stop gap until others emerge. Clouding his fantasy future more is the uncertainty of whether he will win a starting job out of training camp and keep it throughout the season. Itís tough to see him carve out a bigger role in his second season in Carolina, but stranger things have happened (like snatching 10 touchdowns in 2013). Philly Brown, a free agent rookie when he signed a year ago, was surprisingly helpful when he got into the lineup, averaging 14.1 yards per catch. As one of the teamís only deep threats, he could see success in three-receiver formations and the play-action passing game. Brown will battle free agent signees Jarrett Boykin and Ted Ginn for depth at the position. Both castoffs would need more opportunity before becoming fantasy relevant this year.
| Ted Ginn doubtful, missed practice all week|

|Wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) and safety Kurt Coleman (foot) are doubtful for Sundayís game regular season finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Ginn, who leads the Panthers with 10 touchdown receptions, did not practice all week. Coleman, who leads the team with seven interceptions, was limited on Thursday but did not participate Friday.
FFToday's Take: Without Ginn in the lineup, the receiving corps of the Panthers will feature Philly Brown, Devin Funchess, and Jerricho Cotchery. It's a situation to avoid in Week 17.
