2020 Fantasy Outlook
Cannon spent most of the offseason buried on the Jets' running back depth chart behind Le'Veon Bell, Frank Gore and La'Mical Perine. The Jets decided to waive Cannon in the opening days of camp, and the Panthers ended up claiming him. The 2018 sixth-rounder didn't have a carry or catch last season, appearing in only four games. With his new team, Cannon likely is competing with Mike Davis and Jordan Scarlett for one or two places on the regular-season roster. Read Past Outlooks

January 11, 2021
Cannon finished the 2020 season with 10 carries for 33 yards and three catches on three targets for 16 yards in 14 games played.
ANALYSIS
Cannon enjoyed a depth tailback and special-teams role in his first season with the Panthers. While his fantasy value should be even more limited with Christian McCaffrey (thigh) healthy next season, Cannon is under contract with Carolina through the 2021 season..

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
With the offseason acquisitions of Le'Veon Bell and Ty Montgomery to join Elijah McGuire, there's not much room left for Cannon on the Jets' running back depth chart. All hope isn't lost for the 2018 sixth-rounder, however, as New York drafted him with the return game in mind and there's a special teams hole to be filled with Pro Bowler Andre Roberts now plying his trade in Buffalo. Cannon battled fumbling issues when used as a return man during the 2018 preseason, so he'll have to show that those are behind him in order to make the roster.
Cannon may not have the size to handle a starter's workload at the NFL level, but the rookie sixth-rounder out of Virginia State almost certainly won't be asked to. If the 5-foot-11, 185-pound running back sees the field at all, it will likely be in a change-of-pace passing down role or as a returner on special teams.
