The Carolina Panthers host the Denver Broncos in a matchup that should feature fantasy fireworks from the passing games. Both teams have plenty of great options, but the Broncos in particular are getting into a zone right now. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup this week, we've got player projections courtesy of numberFire.
After a slow start, the Broncos offense is starting to click on all cylinders. One of the most intriguing questions offered in the Fantasy War Room has related to fantasy owners that have both Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas on their roster. Generally it would seem better to diversify players, particularly when focusing on one part of the offensive game, but given how the Broncos are performing, it makes sense to consider starting both receivers. Thomas is the more talented receiver, but Peyton Manning really seems to like looking towards Eric Decker.
The Panthers have struggled this season, but Cam Newton remains a very viable fantasy option. The Panthers running game, on the other hand? Not so much. Jonathan Stewart is the starter, but the team splits up carries between him and DeAngelo Williams, and Cam Newton's own rushing skills impact the touches Stewart and Williams see. Stewart is a bye week option, but not a whole lot more than that.
