News: Avant signed a one-year contract with the Panthers on Monday. Impact: Used as the third receiver for much of his time in Philadelphia, Avant has ample experience working out of the slot and should fill such a role with the Panthers in 2014. While he would still appear to have very limited upside -- particularly in non-PPR leagues -- the veteran couldn't have found a better landing spot for fantasy purposes. He joins a receiving corps that includes tight end Greg Olsen, Jerricho Cotchery, Tiquan Underwood, and little else of note. Avant should have every chance to carve out a role in the offense, but Cotchery and perhaps Underwood will also be competing for playing time and targets. Given the poor quality of the talent that they've added at the position in recent weeks, the Panthers still figure to target a wide receiver early in May's draft.(RotoWire, )

News: Avant was slated to visit the Panthers on Monday, ESPN.com reports, Impact: Though the Panthers have added Jerricho Cotchery and Tiquan Underwood to their wideout mix this offseason, there is still room for more competition to be brought in that department, given that the team has correspondingly parted ways with Steve Smith, Ted Ginn, Brandon Lafell and Domenik Hixon.(RotoWire, )
