Carolina Panthers TE Ian Thomas posted five grabs for 61 yards
and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the New Orleans
Saints on seven targets.
Huddle Up: Thomas emerged as a useful fantasy option in deeper leagues down
the stretch, taking over for the injured Greg Olsen (foot). If
the team moves on from Olsen, Thomas has TE1 potential heading
into 2019 since tight end is a big part of Carolina's offense.

yards and a touchdown on five targets in Week 16 against the
Huddle Up: Thomas has stepped up since Greg Olsen (foot) went down, and he
looks like the heir apparent at the position, perhaps start in
2019 if the Panthers go another way with Olsen.

Carolina Panthers TE Ian Thomas reeled in two of four targets for
14 receiving yards in the club's Week 15 loss Monday, Dec. 17,
versus the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Thomas appeared to be a sneaky streaming option going into Week
15 after the rookie tight end amassed 14 catches for 123 yards
over the previous two weeks. However, it would not work out, and
this type of outing indicates Thomas belongs on the waiver wire
as the fantasy postseason winds down.

Carolina Panthers TE Ian Thomas posted a game highs with nine
receptions and 11 targets in the Week 14 road loss against the
Cleveland Browns, finishing with 77 yards.
Huddle Up: Thomas was making the start with Greg Olsen (foot) done for the
season and Thomas was a nice security blanket for Cam Newton. He
might be the future in Charlotte at the position, and is a decent
short-term PPR target if you need help at tight end. The Panthers
host the Saints in Week 15 on Monday night.

Carolina Panthers TE Ian Thomas registered five catches for 46
yards on five targets in Week 13 against the Tampa Bay
Huddle Up: Thomas was the next man up after Greg Olsen suffered yet another
injury to his foot. It's uncertain if Olsen will be forced to
miss more time, but with the Panthers skidding out of control and
perhaps out of the playoff race, it wouldn't be surprising to see
more Thomas and less Olsen going forward.

The Carolina Panthers selected Indiana TE Ian Thomas with the
101st overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Saturday, April 28.
Huddle Up: Thomas likely will serve as the No. 2 tight end for the Panthers
and could take over the starting position when Greg Olsen
retires. He probably will not have much value in standard leagues
but should have value in keeper leagues.
