Ian Thomas not targeted in Week 2

Panthers TE Ian Thomas was not targeted in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact

After a horrendous outing in the season opener, Thomas followed it up with another dud. In fact, he was not targeted in the loss despite ample garbage time. He should not be on the fantasy radar at the moment.

Ian Thomas invisible in Week 1 loss

Panthers TE Ian Thomas caught 2-of-2 targets for 16 yards in Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas was merely a blip on Teddy Bridgewater's radar in Week 1, only drawing a pair of targets. Thomas will get the chance to get going in a plus Week 2 encounter against the Buccaneers, who allowed Jared Cook to go for 80 yards in the season opener.

Ian Thomas (toe) practicing in full

TE Ian Thomas (toe) was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas sustained a toe injury last Monday, but was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice. He is expected to be all systems go for Week 1. Thomas will serve as the Panthers’ TE1, and compete with DJ Moore, Curtis Samuel, Robby Anderson and Christian McCaffrey for targets in Carolina’s passing game.

Ian Thomas (toe) trending towards playing in Week 1

Panthers starting TE Ian Thomas, who has been sidelined with a hyper-extended toe he received during practice last Monday, is expected to play against Las Vegas on Sunday. HC Matt Rhule spoke on Thomas' injury, stating, "I'm expecting him to go and be able to play."

Fantasy Impact

The 2018 fourth-round draft pick now has an opportunity to flourish as the TE1 in Carolina as veteran Greg Olsen departed to Seattle this offseason. Thomas will likely be used as QB Teddy Bridgewater's safety blanket and primary red zone target, creating mismatches with his 6'3", 260 pound frame.

Ian Thomas (toe) suffers minor injury on Monday, should be back "soon"

Panthers' TE Ian Thomas suffered a toe injury during Monday's practice. Head coach Matt Rhule said that X-ray's came back negative and Thomas should be back "soon".

Fantasy Impact

Although Rhule didn't offer any sort of timetable on Thomas' recovery, the injury doesn't appear to be serious. With Greg Olsen moving on in free agency, Thomas will enter the 2020 season as the Panthers' primary receiving tight end. His status for Week 1 doesn't appear to be in jeopardy at the moment.
