CAR 10 TD over last 6 games to WR 
Scott Engel

Panthers have allowed two TDs to opposing WRs in 4 of past 6Jets are AFC's worst Fantasy team vs. opposing WRs
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Thomas has gone three games without a touchdown and nine of his last 10 games without reaching 100 yards. His luck could change, as the Panthers have allowed 90 yards and a touchdown to six receivers in the last five games. New Orleans's top wideout maintains a stellar 28.4 percent target share and 86.4 percent catch rate. The season's WR4 is a top-shelf play even if September's earth-shattering upside has dissipated. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Carolina is just 24th against fantasy wide receivers, Thomas should have a monster game this week. The Jets are just 25th against fantasy wide receivers, Hopkins should have a huge game on Saturday afternoon against a struggling defense.
