RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Muhsin Muhammad.

2009

Not many receivers remain effective after turning 35. Muhammad last season was an exception. Targeted 108 times, he averaged 14.2 yards per catch and 8.6 yards per target (14th among the 35 100-target receivers). At 6-2, 217, Muhammadís been one of the most physical receivers in the league for the last decade. Heíll go over the middle and catch balls in traffic, and his exceptional downfield blocking is part of the reason DeAngelo Williams tied for the league lead in 40-yard gains with five Ė another reason for the Panthers to keep Muhammad on the field. Muhammadís also a good route runner and possesses soft hands, though at age 36, heís lost a step and was never exceptionally fast to begin with. The Panthers targeted Muhammad 16 times in the red zone last year, nine times from inside the 10 and four times around the goal line. With the diminutive Steve Smith on the other side, that could continue, though Muhammad converted on just three red-zone scores.

2008

Muhammad returns to the Panthers after four seasons with the Bears where he failed to match the production that became regular in Carolina. In 2004, his last season with Carolina, Muhammad set career highs in yards (1405) and TDs (16). Muhammad will be the third option behind Steve Smith and D.J. Hackett, but should still receive his fair share of red zone targets. Reuniting with Jake Delhomme could help Muhammad make a return to being an impact fantasy receiver.

2007

After an abysmal first year in Chicago when he averaged a paltry 5.51 yards per target with then rookie Kyle Orton slinging him the ball, Muhammad came back to a more acceptable level a year ago, boosting his per-play average to 7.4. At age 34, Muhammadís not likely to get any better, and though Rex Grossman was a marked upgrade over Orton, weíre still talking about a middle-of-the-pack quarterback with erratic decision-making skills. As for Muhammad, heís not fast, and heís not particularly quick, but his size, strength and toughness should make him a useful possession receiver for the Bears.

2006

After shocking the world with 1,400 yards and 16 touchdowns two years ago, Muhammad found himself in the passing-game Antarctic in Chicago last season. Muhammadís 5.51 yards per target ranked him second to last in the NFL among receivers with 100 or more, as he was able to bring in just 47 percent of the balls thrown his way, thanks in part to his NFC-leading 11 drops. Of course, playing on a run-first, defensive-oriented, cold-and-windy weather team with a rookie quarterback was mostly responsible for Muhammadís abysmal season, but the only one of those factors expected to improve is the quarterback position, and the Rex Grossman/Brian Griese combo is still below average. Muhammad is a big, physical receiver that can make plays down the field with his size, leaping ability and body control. Heís not a great route runner, and heís not particularly quick, but he can the catch ball over the middle and shows good awareness near the sidelines, keeping his feet in bounds. But unless the Bears passing game shows signs of life, none of that matters much.

2005

Anyone who says he saw Muhammadís 2004 campaign coming is probably lying. We had him 28th among receivers last season, and, according to our research, that was the highest any fantasy magazine ranked him. The Panthers looked to Muhammad 27 times in the red zone (2nd) and he converted 11 of those passes into touchdowns (1st). Muhammad saw just five passes at the goal line, but converted two into scores. Muhammad also led the league in pass plays of 20 yards or more with 24. This season, Muhammad will take his act to Chicago where heíll try to jumpstart the lowest-ranked passing attack in the league. With Rex Grossman back from a torn ACL, the offense should improve, but donít expect an instant rapport with Grossman like Muhammad had with Jake Delhomme. At 6-2, 217 pounds, Muhammad can go up and get the ball in traffic, and heís tough to tackle in the open field. While not a burner, he has enough size and speed to get behind defenses and make big plays. Muhammad lacks great quickness or change of direction skills, and heís not a great route-runner, but heís a consistent downfield threat.

2004

Muhammad came on in the second half of Ď03, with 36 catches for 575 yards. Donít forget Muhammadís 15 catches for 352 yards and two scores during the postseason. Despite his reputation as a plodder, Muhammadís size makes him a very effective downfield weapon (third in the NFL in yards per catch among WRs with at least 50 catches). The soon-to-be free agent is also playing for his next contract, which did wonders for Steve Smith last year. Muhammad was targeted 100 times and caught 54 percent of those attempts last season.

2003

It wasn't the smoothest of seasons for the man known as Moose. Hamstring, knee, shoulder and ankle problems kept him from being 100 percent, and he scored just three times. Nonetheless, Muhammad finished with 823 yards and three 100-yard games, not bad production considering how bad the Carolina QB play was for much of the year. Muhammad should stay with the Panthers with Kevin Dyson out for the year (he may need to redo his contract to do so still), and you can look for a mild rebound from him; while Rodney Peete and Jake Delhomme aren't Pro Bowl quarterbacks, at least the Panthers won't have to trot out Randy Fasani and Chris Weinke this season.
