Panthers LB Jon Beason targeting 3rd preseason game. We break down the fantasy implications.

Carolina Panthers LB Jon Beason says he’s hoping to play in the team’s third preseason game against the Jets. If that doesn’t happen the veteran is instead targeting the season-opener with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Beason is still recovering from a hamstring injury.

Analysis: This has to be a little frustrating for the Panthers, who will be counting on Beason to help their defense improve from last season. From a fantasy standpoint, the Panthers as a unit are better with Beason on the field but owners shouldn’t count too heavily on a defense that has to face the Saints and Falcons twice a season. Beason has more value in IDP leagues, as he will likely lead the team in tackles if he is healthy. Monitor his status but there is no reason right now to adjust your rankings because of this.
