Panthers' Ian Thomas: Ends season strong
Thomas finished the 2018 season with 36 catches on 49 targets for 333 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games.
The crests and troughs in Thomas' production were directly linked to the availability (or lack thereof) of top tight end Greg Olsen (foot), who was sidelined for seven games during the season. In Olsen's stead, Thomas capitalized on his increased opportunities, particularly in the final quarter of his rookie campaign. During the last four weeks, the fourth-round pick hauled in 20 of 27 targets for 200 yards and two touchdowns, topping 60 yards in two of those outings. While Olsen is expected to return in 2019, Thomas' strong finish not only makes him an attractive insurance policy but someone who should continue to garner more looks in two-tight end formations.
