    Panthers' Ian Thomas: Makes long catch

    Ian Thomas caught one of two targets for 41 yards in Sunday's 34-28 overtime loss against the Vikings.Thomas was responsible for Carolina's longest offensive play of the day, helping him finish second on the team in receiving yards. The tight end has now posted at least 40 yards in consecutive contests, but considering he's only hauled in more than one pass in two of six games played so far, Thomas isn't getting enough volume even after the Dan Arnold trade to make much of a fantasy impact.

    Panthers' Ian Thomas: Best outing of season

    Ian Thomas caught four of five targets for 40 yards in Sunday's 21-18 loss to the Eagles.Thomas once again played over 60 percent of Carolina's offensive snaps and helped the team with a couple of gains for first downs. With a long reception of 24 yards, Thomas enjoyed his best performance of the campaign, and although rookie Tommy Tremble managed a five-yard touchdown early, Thomas' outing Sunday still offers a slight boost to his fantasy stock ahead of Week 6's matchup versus the Vikings.

    Panthers' Ian Thomas: Logs three receptions

    Ian Thomas caught all three of his targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 36-28 loss to the Cowboys.Thomas no longer had competition from Dan Arnold after the veteran was traded earlier in the week, allowing him to play over 60 percent of Carolina's offensive snaps. Overall though, Thomas' production wasn't too different from his usual output, as he caught a few short passes underneath. Despite now being the nominal starter, Thomas' upside remains restricted by his relatively small role within the Carolina Panthers' scheme, and rookie third-round tight end Tommy Tremble could also see his role grow over the course of the campaign.

    Panthers' Ian Thomas: Makes one catch

    Ian Thomas caught one of two targets for seven yards in Sunday's 26-7 win over the Saints.Thomas made a minimal impact in the passing game, but it's worth noting he once again played more snaps than starting tight end Dan Arnold. In fact, with 52 offensive plays compared to Arnold's 22, Thomas was on the field far more than Arnold, but the latter's three catches for 55 yards Sunday evidenced his greater upside than Thomas, who sports just 24 yards through two games so far and has primarily been used as a blocker.

    Panthers' Ian Thomas: Makes long reception

    Ian Thomas caught one of two targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 19-14 win over the Jets.Thomas opened the third quarter with a long gain and actually played two more snaps than starter Dan Arnold, who managed just a pair of catches for six yards. Although Thomas isn't expected to be much of a factor in Carolina's passing game this season, occasional impact plays like Sunday's grab would keep him in the mix for spare looks.

    Panthers' Ian Thomas: Impressing this offseason

    Coach Matt Rhule pointed out Ian Thomas has had a "great offseason" earlier this month and suggested he still has a chance to lay claim to the Carolina Panthers' starting tight end role, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.Thomas posted a promising rookie season back in 2018 but hasn't really followed it up with much of note in each of the last two, finishing out 2020 with just 20 catches for 145 yards and a touchdown. The Panthers signed Dan Arnold and drafted Tommy Tremble this offseason to shore up the position, but it looks like Thomas will still get a fair shake for the starting job and he's put in work this offseason to keep himself in the conversation. This job battle will likely continue into training camp.

    Panthers' Ian Thomas: Disappointing third season

    Ian Thomas finished the 2020 season with 20 catches on 31 targets for 145 yards and a touchdown in 16 games played.Thomas was expected to assume a larger role in Carolina's passing game following the departure of long-time Pro-Bowler Greg Olsen, but that simply did not manifest despite Thomas playing about 65 percent of the offensive snaps. In fact, the 2018 fourth-rounder's final production closely mirrored that from 2019, when he experienced significant dips from his promising rookie campaign. With 2021 marking the final year of Thomas' current contract, he should be plenty motivated to elevate his involvement, but it remains to be seen whether he'll be featured more, plus the Carolina Panthers could always add another option at tight end.
