Jerricho Cotchery WR CAR 6 Days

Cotchery made three catches (on eight targets) for a season-low 21 yards in Sunday's game versus Green Bay.

Cotchery tied for the Panthers' team-high in targets Sunday and has been thrown at a whopping 18 times over the past two weeks. However, with merely seven receptions over that span, Cotchery could evidently improve his chemistry with quarterback Cam Newton. Until he manages to do so, Cotchery remains a limited fantasy option at receiver, especially since he still hasn't found the end zone this season.

Cotchery caught four passes (on 10 targets) for 58 yards in Sunday's tie against the Bengals.

Cotchery's 10 targets Sunday set a season-high for the veteran, who once again proved capable of moving the chains as a complementary receiver. The first-year Panther has now caught at least four passes in all but one game this season. However, Sunday was only the second time Cotchery has topped 50 yards and he still hasn't scored a touchdown, which displays his somewhat restricted fantasy value.

Cotchery caught three passes (on four targets) for 46 yards Sunday versus Chicago.

Cotchery continues to be a useful possession receiver in the Panthers' offense and his 16 receptions on 19 targets displays great efficiency. However, without a touchdown on the season, Cotchery's fantasy value remains in a holding pattern, after the veteran scored 10 times for the Steelers last term.

Cotchery (thigh) led the Panthers with five receptions (on seven targets) for 80 yards in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

Cotchery only ranked behind rookie Kelvin Benjamin in targets, but still led the Panthers in receiving yards, thanks in large part to an impressive 30-yard catch along the sideline Sunday. Additionally, Cotchery tied for the team lead with five catches, his best performance through three outings. However, following 10 touchdowns last season, Cotchery is yet to score for the Panthers, further restricting the veteran possession receiver's fantasy value.

Cotchery (thigh) is active Sunday versus the Ravens, the Charlotte Observer reports.

There was little question that Cotchery was taking the field, and after an absence last Sunday, he should garner the four targets per game that he took in during the first two weeks of the season.

Cotchery (hamstring) is probable for Sunday's game against Baltimore.

Cotchery practiced fully all week, so his hamstring tweak is evidently close to a non-issue. He caught all of his eight targets in the first two weeks -- four targets in each game -- but it generally doesn't look like there are many opportunities to go around after Greg Olsen and Kelvin Benjamin in the Carolina passing game.

Cotchery (hamstring) practiced fully Wednesday, Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer reports.

The Panthers exercised caution in Week 3, holding Cotchery out due a hamstring injury. He similarly started the week a full participant in drills, before receiving back-to-back downgrades to no practice Friday. As a result, watch his status closely in the coming days to ensure he's available Sunday in Baltimore.

Cotchery (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Cotchery missed last Sunday's game due to a hamstring injury, but has returned to action to begin the Panthers' preparations for this week's game against the Ravens. While the veteran wideout's involvement level should be monitored on a day-to-day basis, Cotchery being available could spell a reduced role for Philly Brown, who caught seven passes for 66 yards last game.

Cotchery (thigh) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Steelers, the Charlotte Observer reports.

While Cotchery is out Sunday night, both Jason Avant and Kelvin Benjamin will be available for the contest, along with TE Greg Olsen.

Cotchery (thigh) is questionable for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.

Cotchery didn't practice Friday, so the injury appears to be a legitimate threat to keep him out of Sunday's game. With Jason Avant (thigh) also hobbled, Greg Olsen and Kelvin Benjamin should get targeted regularly again this week.
