Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Hauls in target
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz caught his lone target for eight yards in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Buccaneers.

Manhertz has now hauled in a pass in back-to-back games, and although that light involvement has only yielded 12 yards in total, his production doesn't differ much from starting tight end Ian Thomas' two grabs for 16 yards thus far.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Catches lone look
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz caught his only target for four yards in Sunday's 34-30 loss to the Raiders.

Manhertz filled his usual blocking role for the vast majority of Sunday's contest, but he at least made the stat sheet with a grab in the second quarter.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Fills blocking role in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz finished the 2019 season with one catch for 11 yards across 15 games.

Manhertz has featured in all but one game for the Panthers over the past three seasons, but he's never finished with more than two receptions in a given campaign. The veteran is a blocking specialist at tight end and should work in that capacity again if he breaks camp with the Panthers in 2020.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Catches first pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz caught his only target for 11 yards in Sunday's 40-20 loss to the Falcons.

The fourth-year tight end has played in all but one game this season, but needed until Week 14 -- and a Greg Olsen (concussion) absence -- to make his first reception. Considering he boasts just six grabs in his career, it's well established by now that Manhertz is a blocking tight end and not a reliable fantasy option.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Suiting up in London
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers in London.

Manhertz was a full participant in practice all week and apparently cleared the five-step concussion protocol at some point thereafter, allowing him to suit up overseas. He'll serve as Carolina's third tight end and should see most of his usage as a blocker.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Questionable for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz (concussion) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Manhertz is working to recover from a concussion, and he's managed to practice in full all week. If he's able to successfully clear the league's protocol for head injuries before Sunday's contest, including receiving clearance from an independent neurologist, he'll play his usual depth role on Carolina's offense.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Works at full speed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

Manhertz appears on track to play in Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers, but he'll first need to be cleared by an independent neurologist. If he's unable to get the green light, Manhertz will have a bye week to recover before Week 8's game versus the 49ers.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Manhertz wasn't able to clear concussion protocol, so he'll miss his first game since entering the league in 2017. He's deployed mainly in a blocking role, so his absence will affect the Panthers' run game more than their pass game. Manhertz will look to shake this injury ahead of Week 6's game versus the Buccaneers.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: DNP on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz (concussion) is not practicing Thursday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Manhertz remains in the concussion protocol. The 26-year-old's chances of suiting up Sunday against the Jaguars appear to be in legitimate jeopardy. If Manhertz is unable to go, the Panthers will roll with just two available tight ends in Greg Olsen and Ian Thomas.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Suffers concussion Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz (concussion) won't return to Sunday's game against the Texans, Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer reports.

It's unclear how Manhertz suffered the concussion, but now that he's been diagnosed, he'll officially enter the league's concussion protocol. The 26-year-old has been solid in his depth role, but now that he's sidelined, the depth chart consists of Greg Olsen and Ian Thomas. Manhertz will need to clear concussion protocol before he's cleared to suit up in practice and game action.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Staying in Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz is re-signing with the Panthers on a two-year contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The 26-year-old caught two passes on 344 offensive snaps in 2018, highlighted by a 50-yard touchdown reception on a fourth-down pass from running back Christian McCaffrey in Week 15 against New Orleans. With fellow tight ends Greg Olsen (foot) and Ian Thomas both under contract for 2019, it appears Manhertz is headed for another season working as a blocking specialist.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Tallies two catches in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz recorded 52 yards and a touchdown on two catches while appearing in 16 games in 2018.

Manhertz played 343 offensive snaps this season but was a blocker first and a receiving option second. Save for a 50-yard touchdown reception, he didn't have much of any fantasy impact. He's a free agent this offseason and will likely see a similar role with a team in 2019, though he could see slightly greater usage as a receiving target.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Catches first touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz scored a 50-yard touchdown on his lone reception from two targets in Monday night's 12-9 loss to the Saints.

Manhertz entered Monday's tilt with merely one reception and three targets this season, making him the perfect candidate to sneak open on a fourth-down trick play that saw Christian McCaffrey find him deep. That play gave Manhertz his first-career touchdown, which should be hugely satisfying for the rarely used tight end.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Avoids injury tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz (foot) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's Week 13 game against the Buccaneers.

Manhertz was sporting a walking boot to start the week and didn't practice Wednesday, but he was able to progress to full practice participation Friday. The 26-year-old should take up his usual spot as the Panthers' No. 3 tight end behind Greg Olsen and Ian Thomas in Week 13.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Sitting out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz (foot) will not take part in practice Wednesday, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Manhertz was spotted in a walking boot Monday, so his absence from practice Wednesday shouldn't be a major shock. The third-string tight end's status shouldn't have many fantasy implications considering he has hauled in just one pass during the 2018 season. However, the Panthers could be down some depth at the position Sunday if Manhertz doesn't progress to play against the Bucs.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Dealing with foot injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz was seen with a walking boot on his left foot Monday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Manhertz had surgery on his left foot during the summer and it's unclear if he aggravated it Sunday, or if he suffered a different injury altogether. The team has offered no official word on the issue, but Manhertz's status for the Week 13 contest against Tampa Bay could be in question.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Will see more time with Olsen out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said he expects Manhertz, Ian Thomas and fullback Alex Armah to share all the reps at tight end Sunday against the Falcons, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

With Greg Olsen (foot) expected to sit out at least the next few games, the Panthers will have a major void to fill at tight end beginning in Week 2. Rather than signing another player to add depth at the position, Carolina seems content deploying Armah when needed, but Thomas and Manhertz seem likely to handle the overwhelming share of the duties. Thanks to his superior speed and athleticism, Thomas is the most likely of the trio to see involvement as a pass catcher and offer fantasy utility, while Manhertz and Armah project mainly as blockers. Over 24 career NFL games, Manhertz has hauled in just three passes for 27 yards.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Active Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz (foot) is active for Sunday's season-opening tilt against the Cowboys.

Both Manhertz and Greg Olsen (back) are active Sunday after shaking off questionable designations, giving Cam Newton his full complement of tight ends against the Cowboys.

September 7, 2018 09:32 PM
Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Questionable for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's season opener against the Cowboys, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Manhertz was removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list and was a limited participant in practice this week to earn the questionable tag. The 26-year-old sustained the injury during minicamp in mid-June and is likely to serve as the Panthers' No. 3 tight end, if he's able to suit up Sunday.

Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Passes physical
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manhertz (foot) passed his physical Friday and was removed form the PUP list, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official website reports.

Manhertz has been sidelined since injuring his foot during an offseason minicamp. He is expected to provide depth at tight end behind Greg Olsen and Ian Thomas, while also aiding special teams. The 26-year-old should not be targeted in the fantasy realm unless injuries occur ahead of him.
