Graham Gano joined the Panthers late in the 2012 season. He converted nine of his 11 field goal attempts. He made four of six 50-plus yard field goals two seasons ago, so there is some power to his game. Gano must re-establish his career. He missed 10 field goals two years ago, which led to his release from the Washington Redskins. Carolina gave him a shot and he'll need to impress to keep this job long-term. Currently, he is not reliable enough to be a starting fantasy kicker.

Carolina finished tenth in the NFL in yardage allowed. They also finished 13th in passing yards allowed and 14th in rushing yards allowed. These numbers should not come as a surprise since the Panthers defense was far from a fantasy contributor. There are some quality pieces in place though. Defensive end Charles Johnson, linebacker Luke Kuechly and recent first round pick DT Star Lotululei are great players. Carolina isn't a full-blown sleeper, but they could slowly emerge as a decent backup or mid-season replacement.
