Damiere Byrd | Bears WR

The Bears signed Damiere Byrd.

It took a while for Byrd to find a home despite coming off a career-best 47/604/1 season for the Patriots, but he finds a nice spot after the draft. Expect Byrd to compete with Marquise Goodwin for the primary deep threat role in Chicago, but the speedster showed he can be an all-around received last year in New England.

The Patriots are signing Damiere Byrd, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Byrd is a deep threat with track speed, but he was able to haul in 32 passes in Kliff Kingsbury's offense last season. This is an interesting signing for New England, and the look of the Patriots offense post-Tom Brady will be intriguing in 2020 and moving forward.

The Cardinals have signed Damiere Byrd.

It will be a one-year deal, but Byrd should have a good shot at earning a role in Kliff Kingbury's spread attack. While the 26-year-old only had 13 touches for 141 yards and two scores in three seasons with the Panthers, he showed flashes as a dynamic gadget player.

The Panthers officially placed Damiere Byrd (broken arm) on injured reserve.

Byrd unfortunately suffered another broken arm in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks, and his season is over. The dynamic 25-year-old had just one reception on the season and mostly contributed as a returner, so he wasn't on fantasy rosters. Byrd should be 100% by the offseason.

Damiere Byrd caught one pass in Sunday's win over the Eagles.

It went for eight yards. Byrd will make some plays, but he isn't a recommended fantasy option as Carolina's No. 6 receiver.

Damiere Byrd houses 103-yard kickoff return in win over the Bucs.

Byrd was able to break a 6-6 tie in the second quarter to help the Panthers eventually clinch a playoff spot with a 22-19 victory. The second-year receiver also caught one pass for 31 yards. He's become an important player for Carolina this month, but Byrd probably isn't worth considering outside of deeper leagues for the conclusion of the fantasy season next week.

Damiere Byrd scores twice in win over the Packers.

Byrd caught three passes for 25 yards, including two red-zone touchdowns. The scores were the first two of Byrd's career, but the 24-year-old looks to have emerged as the team's number-two receiver behind Devin Funchess. He's worth looking at as a FLEX option in Week 16 against the Buccaneers, but there are probably more reliable options for the fantasy championship.

Damiere Byrd caught five passes for 37 yards in Week 14.

Byrd led Carolina in receptions on a day where Cam Newton completed just 13 passes, but the Panthers were still able to pickup a huge win. The 24-year-old won't be a recommended fantasy option in Week 15.

Damiere Byrd makes first reception of the season in Week 13 loss.

It went for 12 yards, and is the New Jersey native's second career catch. Byrd isn't a fantasy option down the stretch.

Damiere Byrd gets a carry in Week 5.

Byrd took his lone touch of the game for 12 yards. Unfortunately, he broke his arm on the play, which is really tough to see for a guy that worked his way into a solid role for the Panthers. We'll see how much time Byrd misses with his injury.

Damiere Byrd | Bears WR

Damiere Byrd goes off in Panthers' preseason win.

The 2015 undrafted deep threat from South Carolina had four receptions for 98 yards and two touchdowns, including a 50-yarder, against the Texans. Byrd has a ton of speed and is obviously off to a great start this preseason as he tries to make the final roster.
