  • P.J. Walker Officially Inactive Sunday

    Carolina Panthers quarterback P.J. Walker (ankle) is inactive for Week 12 against the Denver Broncos. He had been listed as doubtful, so his absence on Sunday comes as no surprise. Sam Darnold recently returned from IR and will start in his place. With a tough matchup against the Denver Broncos, Darnold isn't on the fantasy radar this week.

  • PJ Walker Ruled Out For Week 11

    Carolina Panthers quarterback PJ Walker (ankle) has been officially ruled out for Sunday's Week 11 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. This was expected with the 27-year-old dealing with a high-ankle sprain. That being said, Baker Mayfield will serve as the signal-caller for this game. Although, the coaching staff says Sam Darnold is looking better, so he could very well get reps in this game as well. Mayfield came in for Walker during their Week 9 loss and looked sharp during that contest. Despite that, Mayfield should still be considered a low-end QB2 for Week 11.

  • PJ Walker Has Ankle Sprain, Baker Mayfield To Start In Week 11

    Carolina Panthers quarterback PJ Walker (ankle) has a high-ankle sprain, so Baker Mayfield will get the start in Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens. Sam Darnold will serve as Mayfield's backup. Walker apparently suffered the ankle sprain in last Thursday's win over the Atlanta Falcons, and he'll miss at least one week and likely more. The Panthers don't have a timetable for his return, but we won't go on Injured Reserve. Mayfield came in to replace an ineffective Walker in Week 9 and went 14-for-20 for 155 yards and two touchdowns in garbage time, but he hasn't started a game since Week 5. The 27-year-old should give the Panthers offense more upside through the air, but he won't be anything more than a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues in Week 11 against an improving Baltimore defense.

  • PJ Walker Likely To Remain The Starter For Panthers

    After the win on Thursday night against the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers quarterback PJ Walker will likely remain the starter under center against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11, according to head coach Steve Wilks. Walker avoided turnovers in the Week 10 win over Atlanta, but that was only because he was fortunate to have the Falcons defense drop a couple of easy interceptions. He finished 10-for-16 for just 108 yards and no touchdowns and ran three times for 14 yards. The ground game, notably running back D'Onta Foreman, carried the offense on Thursday night. Walker didn't really do much to help the team win, and he'll face an improving Ravens defense next week. He'll be a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues as he attempts to hold off Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold for another week.

  • PJ Walker Throws For 108 Scoreless Yards In Week 10 Win

    Carolina Panthers quarterback PJ Walker completed 10 of 16 pass attempts for 108 yards and added 14 yards rushing on three carries in a Week 10 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Carolina leaned on the run in the midst of poor weather conditions on Thursday night, but Walker looked much better than he did a week ago before being benched for Baker Mayfield. The starting gig should remain Walker's going forward, but he won't be an enticing fantasy option next week against the Baltimore Ravens.

  • PJ Walker A Dicey QB2 In Week 10

    Carolina Panthers quarterback PJ Walker was named the starter for the team's Week 10 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons are a familiar foe for Walker as he just threw for 317 yards and a touchdown against them in Week 8. Unfortunately, the 27-year-old followed up this solid performance with a nightmarish first half in Week 9, leading to a quarterback change to Baker Mayfield in the third quarter. Walker will hope to get back on track on Thursday night as the Falcons have allowed the seventh-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks in 2022. Still, Walker will be difficult to trust as anything more than a desperation QB2 in superflex and two-quarterback leagues.

  • PJ Walker Will Start On Thursday Night

    Carolina Panthers quarterback PJ Walker will start against the Falcons on Thursday Night Football, despite being benched for Baker Mayfield in Week 9. Walker was benched after throwing two interceptions and just three completions in the blowout loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. In two-QB or superflex leagues, some fantasy managers will be forced to start him, but he's far from the fantasy radar in traditional leagues after posting negative fantasy points in Week 9. He had a nice day against the Falcons in Week 8, but a lot of that production came from a Hail Mary at the end of regulation.

  • Baker Mayfield Replaces PJ Walker In Week 9

    Carolina Panthers quarterback PJ Walker has been benched following an atrocious first half against the Cincinnati Bengals. Baker Mayfield took over to open the second half, looking to eat away at a brutal 35-point deficit. Neither player should be viewed as anything more than a QB3 in fantasy football going forward.

  • PJ Walker Has Difficult Matchup In Week 9

    Carolina Panthers quarterback PJ Walker finished as the fantasy QB15 against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8 but will face a much more difficult opponent in the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Carolina's offense has clearly improved with Walker at the helm, but the 27-year-old signal-caller could struggle against a Bengals defense that has allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season. Walker will remain a low-end option in superflex or two-quarterback formats, but should not be started in one-QB fantasy leagues.

  • PJ Walker To Start Against Bengals

    Carolina Panthers quarterback PJ Walker will get his fourth straight start of the season after throwing for 317 yards and a touchdown in the loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Walker gets the start over Baker Mayfield, who is now healthy enough to play. The Panthers face off against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 9, who have been a top-five defense against fantasy quarterbacks. That said, Walker is not a strong fantasy option in traditional leagues and should only be called upon in two-QB or superflex formats.

  • PJ Walker Throws For 317 Yards In Narrow Loss

    Carolina Panthers quarterback PJ Walker completed 19 of 36 pass attempts for 317 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in a 37-34 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Walker added 20 yards rushing on one carry. His one score came on a beautiful 62-yard pass to wide receiver DJ Moore that tied the game late in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately, the missed extra-point attempt afterward ultimately led to the loss in overtime. Walker's 317 passing yards are the most by a Carolina quarterback this season and the team has scored 55 points in two weeks with him as the starter. Expect Walker to remain the Panthers' QB1 going forward. A matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals is on tap for Week 9.

  • PJ Walker A Low-End QB2 In Soft Matchup

    Carolina Panthers quarterback PJ Walker is set to start for a second consecutive game, this time against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8. Walker threw for two touchdown passes last week and should be able to find success facing an Atlanta defense that is allowing the third-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season. Even without Christian McCaffrey in the backfield, the Panthers offense seemed to take a step forward with Walker at the helm. He is not a recommended starter in single-quarterback leagues but should be serviceable as a low-end QB2 in two-quarterback or superflex formats this week.

  • PJ Walker To Start Against Falcons

    Carolina Panthers quarterback PJ Walker will get his third straight start in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons. He completed 16-of-22 passing attempts for 177 yards and two touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and has earned at least one more start. Baker Mayfield (ankle) and Sam Darnold (ankle) could both be healthy enough to play in Week 8, but head coach Steve Wilks said Walker will start either way. Walker still has a low floor and ceiling, but he's a fine fill-in starter in two-QB/superflex leagues against a poor defense in Atlanta.

  • P.J. Walker May Have Earned More Starts

    Carolina Panthers quarterback P.J. Walker threw for 177 yards and two touchdowns off 16-for-22 passing in Week 7 against Tampa. Walker, who received another start for the injured Baker Mayfield (ankle), led a team that had just traded Christian McCaffrey to an upset win over Tom Brady and the Bucs. As a result, the 27-year-old may start more games moving ahead, with interim head coach Steve Wilks stating that it's "going to be hard to pull" him after the performance. As a result, Baker Mayfield may be on the bench even when he's healthy. However, Mayfield or Sam Darnold (ankle) could be under center if Walker struggles. With that said, none of them are expected to be consistent fantasy producers.

  • PJ Walker Throws Two Touchdowns, Stuns Bucs In Win

    Carolina Panthers quarterback PJ Walker completed 16 of 22 pass attempts for 177 yards and two touchdowns in a 21-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Walker looked surprisingly sharp in this one after an atrocious showing last week. He targeted wide receiver DJ Moore early and often, finding him for a 20-yard strike in the second quarter for the first score of the game. Both Baker Mayfield (ankle) and Sam Darnold (ankle) could be active for Week 8, so it will be interesting to see who will start under center against the Atlanta Falcons. Walker will be a name to look for on waivers in superflex or two-QB fantasy formats for teams lacking at the position.

  • PJ Walker Will Start This Week

    Carolina Panthers quarterback PJ Walker will start the Week 7 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With Baker Mayfield (ankle) sidelined last week, Walker started against the Los Angeles Rams. However, the veteran quarterback suffered a neck injury and left the game early. Thankfully, he didn't suffer a concussion and will be able to play this week. Meanwhile, the Panthers designed Sam Darnold (ankle) to return from injured reserve earlier today and will practice. The fifth-year quarterback hasn't played this season after suffering the injury in the preseason. While Walker will start this week, expect the Panthers to readdress the quarterback situation next week, depending on the health of Mayfield and Darnold.

  • P.J. Walker Suffers Neck Injury In Week 6

    Carolina Panthers quarterback P.J. Walker (neck) didn't return to the Week 6 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. The signal-caller took a shot to the head and was evaluated for a concussion. However, a neck injury kept him out, resulting in Jacob Eason replacing him. Walker, starting for the injured Baker Mayfield (ankle), finished the day with only 60 yards off 10-for-16 passing. There should be an update on Walker's condition moving ahead, but there appears to be a chance Eason will be under center for Week 7 against the Buccaneers.

  • P.J. Walker Will Start Against Rams

    Carolina Panthers interim head coach Steve Wilks said that quarterback Baker Mayfield (ankle) "had a great workout this morning," but P.J. Walker will get the start in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Rams. Mayfield is officially listed as doubtful, but if he does wind up being active, he'd serve as the backup. It will be Walker's third NFL start, and he'll be going up against a defense that will most likely make life very difficult for him. The 27-year-old has attempted 128 passes in three NFL seasons, throwing for 790 yards, two touchdowns and eight interceptions. The only way you should be rolling with Walker in two-QB superflex leagues this weekend is if you're pretty desperate at the position.
