Jerricho Cotchery is expected to be the Panthers number one receiver, but every spot after that is open.
With the departure of Steve Smith to Baltimore, the Panthers lack a true No. 1 Wideout. The depth chart after Crotchery reads like the NFL classifieds section: Jason Avant, Kelvin Benjamin, Tiquan Underwood. It's safe to say the Panthers will be one of the more running-heavy attacks in football, using their beastly Tight End Greg Olson as an end zone target. Cam Newton's value will be somewhat tied to whether or not any of the above receivers take their game to the next level. ANALYST:
Hector Sanchez left Thursday's game after taking a foul tip to the neck.
We should get a better idea on Friday if this injury is serious or not, but even a brief absence could set Sanchez back in his roster battle with Andrew Susac. Susac is younger, and a better hitter and he could be useful in NL-only or if the Giants decide to play Buster Posey more at first base. Sanchez will never have much fantasy value regardless of role though he would probably be better for San Francisco's pitchers. Analysis: Steve Pimental
Ross Ohlendorf left Thursday's game with tightness in his right groin.
This isn't good news for Ohlendorf, especially after he's pitched so well this spring. Given his success, it seems as though the only way that he will be left off of the Rangers' Opening Day roster is if he is out for an extended period of time or has a setback. He will likely fill a long reliever role for Texas with the chance to make an occasional spot start. Analysis: David Kerr
