Player Outlook
While Fantasy managers again dreamed last offseason of the long awaited Ian Thomas breakout year, he ended up splitting production with an interesting third-round rookie out of Notre Dame in Tremble. Tight end is a difficult position for rookies to excel playing in their first season, and Tremble's production was nothing to write home about, with the Notre Dame product seeing no more than four targets in a game until the finale, never reaching 40 yards in a game and only scoring once all season. That leaves him off the Fantasy radar in most leagues heading into 2022, though TE premium formats may want to keep him on the watch list to see if more targets emerge after an offseason preparing as the starter.

  • Panthers' Tommy Tremble: Plays in preseason opener

    Tremble played but wasn't targeted in Saturday's 23-21 preseason win over the Commanders. Tremble started at tight end and played 11 offensive snaps prior to calling it a day. Although he didn't get his hands on the ball, Tremble should continue to benefit from more reps in practice following Ian Thomas' recent rib injury. As a rookie last year, Tremble caught 20 of 35 targets for 180 yards and a touchdown, numbers he'll strive to expand upon in new coordinator Ben McAdoo's scheme.

  • Panthers' Tommy Tremble: Finishes rookie season

    Tremble caught two of five targets for seven yards and rushed once for four yards in Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Buccaneers. Tremble returned from the reserve/COVID-19 list and played five more offensive snaps than teammate Ian Thomas, who wasn't targeted. Despite garnering his most looks in a game this season, Tremble's production was as mild as usual. In 16 appearances, the third-rounder caught 20 of 35 targets for 180 yards and a touchdown, while also rushing three times for 11 yards and another score. With Thomas an unrestricted free agent this offseason, it's possible Tremble profiles as the Panthers' starting tight end in 2022, although they could always add to their options at the position. In any case, Tremble will strive to build on his rookie campaign with more volume in the passing game next term.

  • Panthers' Tommy Tremble: Returns from COVID-19 list

    Carolina activated Tremble (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports. The rookie will return to his timeshare at tight end with Ian Thomas after missing the Week 17 loss at New Orleans. Tremble and the Panthers close out their disappointing season this Sunday against the Buccaneers.

  • Panthers' Tommy Tremble: Not activated for Week 17

    Tremble (illness) won't be available for Sunday's game in New Orleans after the Panthers didn't activate him from the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to Saturday's deadline for week 17 roster moves, Jonathan M. Alexander of The Charlotte Observer reports. Considering Tremble was placed on the list Friday, he was never likely to test out of the NFL's COVID-19 return-to-play protocol 48 hours later. Ian Thomas is expected to replace Tremble as the Panthers' starting tight end Sunday, though he likely won't see as much involvement in the passing game.

  • Panthers' Tommy Tremble: Added to COVID list

    Tremble was added to the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday afternoon. Given the timing, Tremble is unlikely to play in Sunday's game against the Saints. His probable absence should give Ian Thomas more snaps, with Stephen Sullivan potentially also taking on some work. Tremble has yet to see more than four targets in a contest but does have a 13-game streak with at least one.

  • Panthers' Tommy Tremble: Makes two grabs

    Tremble caught two of three targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 32-6 loss to the Buccaneers. Tremble played 17 more offensive snaps than fellow tight end Ian Thomas, once again outproducing the veteran as well. As Carolina looks to develop its younger players over the season's last couple weeks, the rookie Tremble could continue to enjoy a starter's share of snaps.

  • Panthers' Tommy Tremble: Catches one pass

    Tremble caught one of four targets for eight yards in Sunday's 31-14 loss to the Bills. Tremble played seven more snaps than Ian Thomas, but neither tight end managed more than one reception. In a struggling offense, the rookie usually doesn't make much of an impact beyond a catch or two for mild yardage, restricting his fantasy value.

  • Panthers' Tommy Tremble: Makes two grabs

    Tremble caught both of his targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 27-21 loss to Washington. Tremble picked up first downs with both of his receptions, which went for 19 and 16 yards, respectively. Combined, those grabs saw Tremble trail only Christian McCaffrey and DJ Moore in yards through the air, making for an efficient outing by his standards. The rookie will strive to maintain his impact as a complementary target in Week 12 versus the Dolphins.

  • Panthers' Tommy Tremble: Catches two passes

    Tremble caught both of his targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 25-3 loss to the Giants. Tremble played over half of Carolina's offensive snaps and outperformed starter Ian Thomas, who didn't catch a pass Sunday. However, with minimal yardage overall, it still wasn't a very impactful display from the rookie, who now sports five receptions for 54 yards and has scored twice through his first seven games.

  • Panthers' Tommy Tremble: Catches successful conversion

    Tremble hauled in a two-point conversion but didn't catch either of his other two targets in Sunday's 34-28 overtime loss to the Vikings. He also rushed once for no yards. Tremble helped force overtime by tying the score with his two-point conversion catch with under a minute remaining. The rookie did little else, but it's at least encouraging that Tremble played only two offensive snaps fewer than starting tight end Ian Thomas on Sunday.

  • Panthers' Tommy Tremble: In line for larger role

    Tremble is in line for increased work after TE Dan Arnold was traded from the Panthers to the Jaguars on Monday, David Newton of reports. Tremble wasn't targeted in either of the first two games of the season but hauled in his lone target for 30 yards while recording one carry for seven yards and a touchdown in Thursday's win over Dallas. Although the 2021 third-rounder will likely have to split work with Ian Thomas, Arnold's departure should lead to more playing time for the rookie.

  • Panthers' Tommy Tremble: Makes two grabs

    Tremble caught both his targets for 45 yards in Friday night's 34-9 preseason win over the Steelers. Tremble, a rookie third-round pick, impressed with his pass catching during the preseason. After being praised most for his blocking capacity coming out of Notre Dame, Tremble hauled in seven passes for 82 yards and a touchdown in three preseason outings. That production seemingly now has Tremble poised to serve as Dan Arnold's backup at tight end going into his first regular season, which begins with a matchup against the Jets.
