News: Avant (thigh) didn't take part in practice Wednesday, the Panthers' official site reports. Impact: With Cam Newton back under center in Week 2, Avant ranked third on the team with seven targets, after garnering just one look from Derek Anderson in the opener. Perhaps the veteran wideout provides Newton with a level of trust, but Avant appears poised for a decent first campaign in Carolina. Nonetheless, potential owners should monitor Avant's status as the week unfolds in order to understand his availability Sunday against the Steelers.(RotoWire, )

News: Avant caught 5-of-7 targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 2 victory over the Lions. Impact: Avant rebounded well from last week's one-catch debut for the Panthers by scoring the go-ahead touchdown in Carolina's home opener this Sunday. In doing so, the veteran wideout secured a 14-yard bullet pass from quarterback Cam Newton. Furthermore, Avant's seven targets were more than expected Sunday, but his pegging as Carolina's No. 3 wideout offers restricted fantasy value moving forward.(RotoWire, )
