2024 Fantasy Outlook
The No. 1 pick in last year’s draft, Young had a rough welcome to the NFL. He finished at or near the bottom of nearly every passing category last season, including in yards per attempt where his 5.5 mark was the lowest in the league in a decade. Young was not just inaccurate, but he rarely attempted to stretch the field. Only 7.2 percent of his throws went longer than 20 yards, 29th in the league. When he did go deep, he struggled -- only Mac Jones had a lower completion percentage on downfield passes than Young’s 22.8 percent. Young lacks a signature trait -- he doesn’t have a big arm, doesn’t run much (four designed runs for zero yards) and he’s just 5-10 — but the Panthers didn't exactly help matters last season. They failed to surround him with talent, and the scheme was so futile it cost head coach Frank Reich his job after Week 12. Former Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dave Canales was hired to do for Young what he did for Baker Mayfield last year. Canales plans to use play-action and bootlegs to keep Young upright after 62 sacks last year, in addition to getting the ball out more quickly. The Panthers traded for WR Diontae Johnson, drafted WR Xavier Legette at No. 32 overall and signed a pair of starting guards, ensuring Young will have at least a little more help than he did last year.

Surrounding cast improves

Young appears primed to benefit from improved surroundings on offense Year 2, with the Panthers adding names like wide receiver Diontae Johnson and guard Robert Hunt in free agency, David Newton of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Young is coming off a completely forgettable rookie campaign, having completed just 315 of 527 pass attempts for 2,877 yards, 10 touchdowns and 11 interceptions across 16 regular-season games. He surpassed 200 yards in just five of those contests. A real part of the blame must fall on Carolina's mediocre offensive personnel and scheme, and things already appear to be improving under new head coach Dave Canales. Trading for Diontae Johnson provides Young with a versatile and trustworthy No. 1 target, after a rookie year in which his only reliable wideout was a 33-year-old Adam Thielen. Inking Hunt to a massive-five year deal ought to provide Young, who was second in the league last season with 62 sacks, with more reliable protection for the foreseeable future, and the signing of Damien Lewis to a four-year deal locks up both guard positions. Expect the Panthers to do more to help Young in April's draft, where they will first pick in the second round at No. 33 overall.

2023 Fantasy Outlook
The Panthers traded WR DJ Moore and a bevy of picks to Chicago to move up in the draft and select Young first overall. Carolina got the QB it wanted, which likely means Young will be the Week 1 starter rather than 35-year-old Andy Dalton. But Young faces significant questions. He’s small at 5-10, 204, which makes durability a concern, in addition to his ability to see the full field. He throws a good deep ball, though he doesn’t have an elite arm. And unlike other undersized QBs that have held up in the pros, Young isn't especially fast and didn't run much in college. He is noted for being tough, poised in the pocket and accurate (12 INTs on 949 attempts at Alabama), often thriving off-script to creatively extend plays while looking to throw rather than run. The Panthers tried to help him this spring by signing RB Miles Sanders, WR Adam Thielen, WR DJ Chark and TE Hayden Hurst and drafting WR Jonathan Mingo in the second round. The veterans are all capable, but none is a game-changer. The Panthers’ rebuild also features new coach Frank Reich, who should help Young develop. And this year could be more about that than anything else for Young.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Deemed potential breakout candidate
QBCarolina Panthers
June 21, 2024
Young is labeled as a potential 2024 breakout candidate by Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.
ANALYSIS
The embattled 2023 first overall pick struggled through a nightmarish rookie season, but this offseason's hiring of head coach Dave Canales, who worked wonders with Baker Mayfield in Tampa Bay last season, was largely a move to salvage Young's career. It appears to be working well thus far, with positive reports emerging about Young's performance in OTAs and minicamps. Those, combined with Brooks' belief in Canales' coaching acumen and his ability to shape the offense into a quarterback-friendly system, makes the analyst a believer that a bounce-back year for Young could be in the offing.
