Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
Even though he took part in limited practices leading up to the Panthers' Week 10 contest against the Detroit Lions, Bridgewater (knee) was a late scratch due to a knee sprain. Phillip Walker started in his place and played solidly, leading the Panthers to a 20-0 win. Since Bridgewater was close to playing against the Lions, we'll tentatively assume that he's returning for a Week 12 clash with the Minnesota Vikings. Minnesota's defense has permitted the ninth-most passing yards and the fourth-most touchdown strikes. In addition, the Vikings have allowed at least 291 passing yards and two touchdown tosses in three of their last five outings. Despite his tender knee, Bridgewater looks like a sneaky streaming option.
Passing: 235 Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 14 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
He parlayed five winning fill-in starts with the Saints last season into a new starting gig with the Panthers. Demonstrating a firm command of the New Orleans offense while Drew Brees (thumb surgery) was on the mend, Bridgewater averaged 241 passing yards and 1.8 touchdown strikes per contest while hitting on an efficient 69.7 percent of his throws. By the way, Bridgewater carved up a leaky Buccaneers secondary for 314-4-1 during one of the few times that the Saints turned him loose. If Carolina's offense can come together quickly and look as good on the field as it does on paper, Bridgewater could be a huge breakout candidate. New Panthers offensive boss Joe Brady will use the same innovative schemes that turned Joe Burrow into a success at LSU last season. There's some concern that precision pocket passer Bridgewater, who turns just 28 in November, lacks the arm strength and mobility to operate Brady's scheme successfully, but Burrow has a similar skill set and succeeded. Bridgewater is fantastic at reading the middle of the field and making throws under duress. If he can get acclimated to Brady's playbook quickly, Bridgewater will excel at getting the ball to his speedy arsenal of weapons, which includes D.J. Moore, Curtis Samuel, Robby Anderson and Christian McCaffrey. A Panthers defense that ranked 23rd in yards allowed and 31st in points allowed last season has been reworked but probably won't improve quickly, so expect Bridgewater and his offensive teammates to put the pedal to the metal in high-scoring shootouts most weeks.

Passing: 993 Yards, 6 TD, 5 INT.
Rushing: 76 Yards, 2 TD.
