Cotchery will be a free agent in March, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Panthers added a voidable year to Cotchery's contract to get some cap relief in 2015. The move will cost the team a $1.35 million cap hit in 2016, but it doesn't necessarily mean that Cotchery's tenure in Carolina will come to an end. Regardless, the 33-year-old wideout is long past his days of fantasy relevance.

Cotchery secured two of five targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 24-10 Super Bowl loss to the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran had some trouble hanging on to the ball, failing to come down with a couple of contested passes against a swarming Broncos secondary. The 12-year veteran nevertheless was a productive component of the Panthers offense in 2015, grabbing 39 receptions (26 of which went for first downs) for 485 yards and three touchdowns as one of Cam Newton's most trusted move-the-chain targets. While his 80-plus reception years are in the rearview mirror, Cotchery's character in the locker room and savvy on the field figure to earn him a spot on an NFL roster in 2016.

Cotchery caught three of four targets for 22 yards in Sunday's win over Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran receiver caught at least three passes for the sixth time in his last eight games. Cotchery ranked third on the Panthers in catches and yards in 2015, but scored just thrice and was held under 30 yards in nine of 15 games this season, including Sunday. With Carolina ranking as the NFL's most run-heavy team this season and Arizona's eighth-ranked pass defense up next, don't expect too much from Cotchery next week.

Cotchery finished Sunday's loss to the Falcons with four receptions (on five targets) for 24 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Cotchery also rushed once for 16 yards. While that was Cotchery's first carry of the campaign, he's now caught four passes in back-to-back games, but once again finished with under 50 receiving yards Sunday. In fact, the veteran has only crossed that threshold three times this season, and since he's only scored twice, Cotchery holds restricted fantasy upside.

Cotchery (not injury related) is active for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Cotchery has 27 receptions for 352 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games played so far this season, and he will look to add to those totals against the Falcons.

Cotchery caught all three passes thrown his way, resulting in 26 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Cotchery continues to be a reliable target in the Panthers' passing game, as he's now caught 27 of 33 passes directed toward him this season. Although his 352 total yards is underwhelming in fantasy terms, Cotchery secured a game-winning, 15-yard touchdown Sunday that preserved Carolina's undefeated record. So while his peripheral, low volume role isn't necessarily conducive to fantasy success, Cotchery's contributions have still proven useful to the Panthers' passing attack.

Cotchery caught 5-of-6 targets for 73 yards in Thursday's win over the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

The Panthers used a conservative game plan on offense and didn't take many chances downfield, which allowed Cotchery to enjoy plenty of volume on the intermediate routes. He fell two yards short of the end zone on a 12-yard reception late in the second quarter to deprive his fantasy owners of a touchdown, but those in deeper leagues who may have been forced to start Cotchery still have to be happy that he delivered his second-highest yardage output of the season.

Cotchery caught four of six targets for 57 yards in Sunday's win over Washington.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran finished second on the team in targets and yards in the blowout, eclipsing the 50-yard mark for the second time in three games. Despite the recent success, Cotchery is but one of many pieces of a patchwork Carolina receiving corps, and he carries minimal upside from week to week. Next on the schedule is a Thanksgiving matchup with the Cowboys.

Cotchery caught three of his six targets for a season-high 82 yards in Sunday's game against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran led the team in receiving Sunday and finished second in targets. However, his modest usage and the balanced nature of the Carolina attack have him outside the category of weekly fantasy starters. A matchup with the Titans awaits in Week 10.

Cotchery (ankle) caught 2-of-4 targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 27-23 win at Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Cotchery played for the first time since Week 2, and didn't do much, other than a 14-yard catch at one point. He might produce better numbers as he gets healthier, but Greg Olsen, who caught 7-of-11 targets for 131 yards and a touchdown Sunday, remains Cam Newton's top target. Next week, the Panthers will take on the Eagles at home.
