Ian Thomas plays just four snaps in Week 1

Ian Thomas saw just four Week 1 snaps and failed to haul in his only target.

Fantasy Impact

Ian Thomas gets some love as the Panthers tight end of the future, however his Week 1 workload suggests that Greg Olsen (94 percent of the snaps) is still viewed as an everydown tight end. Thomas is merely a tight end 'handcuff' who should not be relied upon for any sort of consistent production without an injury befalling Olsen. He flashed at times last season but is not a standalone redraft option.

Ian Thomas gets one target against Patriots

Panthers TE Ian Thomas failed to catch his lone target in Thursday night's preseason Week 3 loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas will open 2019 behind Greg Olsen on the Panthers' tight end depth chart, but could also return standalone fantasy value in leagues in which you can start two tight ends. If Olsen once again goes down with an injury, Thomas could have fringe TE1 upside in those games.

Ian Thomas catches one pass in preseason opener

Panthers TE Ian Thomas caught 1-of-2 targets for 16 yards in Thursday night's win over Chicago.

Fantasy Impact

With Greg Olsen healthy and back in the mix, Thomas will open 2019 as the TE2. However, due to Olsen's recent injury history, Thomas could garner fantasy value if the starter once again goes down.

Ian Thomas scores again in Week 17

Panthers TE Ian Thomas caught 5-of-7 targets for 61 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas has scored in back-to-back games to end the 2018 season and played well overall in the second half following Greg Olsen's second significant injury os the year. If Olsen elects to retire, Thomas could be one of the sleeper tight ends of 2019 who could be had at a value.

Ian Thomas scores in Week 16 loss

Panthers TE Ian Thomas caught 4-of-5 targets for 48 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 loss to Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas caught his first career touchdown from the arm of Taylor Heinicke. It was a tough matchup, but Thomas once again played well for the third time in four games without Greg Olsen. Thomas gets the Saints in Week 17.
