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

Sticking in backup role
QBCarolina Panthers
December 2, 2019
Coach Ron Rivera said Monday that Grier will remain the backup to Kyle Allen, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.
Rivera said "who knows" when asked whether Grier will get an opportunity to play this season, per Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer. The rookie third-round pick hasn't seen any game action since the preseason. The Panthers are on a four-game losing streak, and it remains possible that the team could consider a change under center should that pattern continue.
