2019 Fantasy Outlook
The former CFL wide receiver had just on reception last season in a limited reserve wide receiver role and special teams player. He'll look to gain an increased offensive role in 2019 as the Vikings received little production at wide receiver behind top targets Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a three-year, $1.71 million contract with the Vikings in January of 2018. Waived by the Vikings in August of 2019. Claimed off waivers by the Panthers in September of 2019.
Closes out 2019 with impressive day
WRCarolina Panthers
December 29, 2019
Zylstra hauled in six of eight targets for 96 receiving yards during Sunday's 42-10 loss to the Saints.
ANALYSIS
The 26-year-old wideout from Concordia-Moorhead (MN) took advantage of increased playing time Week 17, logging a game high in receiving yards as Carolina's No. 1 WR D.J. Moore sat out with a concussion. Zylstra fielded a season-high 24 percent of Carolina's offensive snaps Week 16 when Moore went down with injury in the first quarter of a blowout loss to Indianapolis, but in the season finale against New Orleans, he was even more involved, finishing behind only Christian McCaffrey in targets among Panthers players. With one year remaining on his current deal, Zylstra will strive to carry his newfound momentum into 2020 in pursuit of a more integral role within Carolina's offensive attack.
