Summary

Ian Thomas will have a chance to showcase his talent and ability now that Greg Olsen has left Carolina for Seattle. Thomas saw limited action in the time when Greg Olsen was active and in the lineup. In Olsen's absence over the last few years, Thomas thrived and performed well. In 2019 when Olsen was dealing with a head injury, Thomas had 11 receptions on 17 targets for 104 yards and a touchdown in 10 quarters of action. Thomas is expected to be the Panthers top tight end target in offensive coordinator Joe Brady's offense, but if he is to take a step forward in his development, he'll need to produce consistent numbers. At best Thomas is a top 15 tight end, but if the Panthers offense takes flight under Joe Brady and Teddy Bridgewater, he could see his fantasy value jump. (April 30)
