2019 Fantasy Outlook
Grier was drafted in the third round this year to back up Cam Newton in Carolina. Opportunities will be scarce, unless Newton is injured, but Grier is a work in progress anyway. Although his arm strength is merely average, Grier is an accurate passer (67.0 completion rate last year). He is described by scouts as having a gunslinger mentality even if he doesn't have a gunslinger's arm, which is probably why he gets reckless at times - 20 interceptions in two seasons at West Virginia. Still, he threw for 7,354 years and 71 touchdowns the last two years for the Mountaineers, showing plenty of upside. Carolina's receiving corps is rather pedestrian, though second-year WR D.J. Moore has big-play potential. If nothing else, Grier can always dump it off to Christian McCaffrey and Greg Olsen. Read Past Outlooks

Commits two turnovers
QBCarolina Panthers
August 29, 2019
Grier completed 11 of 18 passes for 189 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Thursday night's 25-19 preseason win over the Steelers. He also rushed once for five yards but lost a fumble.
ANALYSIS
Grier entered the game after watching Kyle Allen put the Panthers in field-goal range on their first offensive drive. Although a 54-yard completion on Grier's first attempt helped him get the team to the five-yard line on their second series, he was subsequently stripped while attempting a potential touchdown pass, suddenly resulting in an 88-yard return for a score the other way. Grier would rebound from that disappointment by leading a field-goal drive immediately after, and he also found Aldrick Robinson for a 34-yard TD toward the end of the second quarter, but an interception from his own 14-yard line set up a Pittsburgh touchdown just before halftime. Overall, it was an uneven outing for the rookie, leaving it questionable whether he or Allen will serve as Cam Newton's backup in Week 1.
