Another clunker for Panthers DST
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer (9/28/14) For the second straight game, the Panthers couldn't come through on the defensive side of the ball Week 4 at Baltimore, allowing 38 points on 454 yards. They allowed 37 points on 454 yards to the visiting Steelers last week.
But at least they had a sack then. They couldn't muster even one of those against the Ravens. They also went without a turnover for the second straight game.
The Panthers DST was one of the top units in Fantasy last season and started out that way this season, but it's clearly slumping right now. It has another tough test Week 5 against the Bears, so you may want to look into alternatives.
