Saints' Alex Armah: Signs with NFC South foe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armah signed with the Saints on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Armah played 55 games for the Panthers over the past four seasons. He was mostly used in a blocking role, but he managed to score three touchdowns anyway. This signing likely means that fullback Michael Burton won't return to New Orleans. Burton averaged roughly 14 offensive snaps per game in 2020, so Armah can expect a similar role during his first season in the Big Easy.

Panthers' Alex Armah: Plays all 16 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armah finished the 2020 season with six rushes for nine yards and five receptions on nine targets for 18 yards in 16 games.

Armah once again served as Carolina's fullback, playing all 16 games for a third straight season. Unlike the prior two campaigns, though, Armah wasn't able to find the end zone at all, and he was featured on less than 15 percent of the Panthers' total offensive snaps. As one of the few true fullbacks in the league with experience filling an occasional offensive role, the veteran should garner interest as a free agent this offseason.

Panthers' Alex Armah: Secures only target
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armah hauled in his only target during Sunday's 32-27 loss to the Broncos.

Armah's lone catch only got back to the line of scrimmage, but it's notable that he did draw a look in the red zone for the first time since Week 6. On a less positive note, the fullback has played just seven combined offensive snaps over the last two weeks. That's his lowest usage over a two-game stretch all season.

Panthers' Alex Armah: Garners one target
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armah failed to catch his lone target during Sunday's win over the Lions.

The 26-year-old continues to see a handful of snaps per contest, and he averaged less than one touch per game. Armah has five carries for six yards and three catches for nine yards in 11 games this season.

Panthers' Alex Armah: Catches one pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armah caught his only target for 14 yards in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Buccaneers.

Armah already has three touches through Carolina's first two games, as coordinator Joe Brady looks to diversify his options out of the backfield with occasional fullback usage. Although Armah's production hasn't been anything special, he at least gets rewarded for his blocking with a touch here and there. Furthermore, if tailback Christian McCaffrey, who exited late with an ankle concern Sunday, is limited going forward, Armah could stand to get a couple more looks in Week 3 versus the Chargers.

Panthers' Alex Armah: Rushes twice Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armah finished with two carries for one yard in Sunday's 34-30 loss to the Raiders.

Armah got a chance to score with a carry from the four-yard line to start the fourth quarter, but the fullback could only manage a yard up the middle. He then was trusted on a critical fourth-and-one call with under two minutes left, but he was stuffed for no gain. Although Armah is unlikely to garner more touches in upcoming weeks, it's noteworthy that his number was called in those situations, even if he failed to take advantage of them. On the bright side, he helped pave the way for another fine performance from tailback Christian McCaffrey, who found the end zone twice on the ground.

Panthers' Alex Armah: Scores touchdown this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armah finished the 2019 season with six carries for 11 yards and a touchdown and two receptions for six yards across 16 games.

Armah again served as Carolina's fullback this season, and though that role doesn't lend itself to much fantasy value, he was at least turned in a one-yard touchdown plunge in Week 1. The veteran remains under contract with the Panthers next season, so expect him to reprise his usual duties as a lead blocker for star running back Christian McCaffrey.

Panthers' Alex Armah: Sprinkled in Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armah rushed once for four yards and caught his lone target for two yards in Sunday's 38-20 win over the Cardinals.

Armah now sports three touches through three games, showing the Panthers still keep their fullback in mind outside of blocking duties. Still, that spare usage hardly lands Armah on the fantasy radar.

Panthers' Alex Armah: Gets two carries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armah rushed twice for three yards in Week 10's loss to the Steelers.

Armah now sports 14 yards on seven rushes through nine games, showing the Panthers will throw their fullback a bone every now and then.

Panthers' Alex Armah: Could factor into tight-end mix
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said Thursday that he expects Armah to earn reps at tight end in the team's Week 2 game against the Falcons, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

The Panthers officially list Armah as a fullback, but with Greg Olsen (foot) expected to be sidelined for at least a few weeks, the team requires additional depth at tight end. Though he scored on a goal-line carry in Carolina's season-opening win over the Cowboys, the 6-foot-2, 255-pound Armah is mainly valued for his blocking, and that's likely what he'll be tasked with nearly any time he lines up at tight end. Neither Armah nor Chris Manhertz is expected to draw many targets whenever on the field, with rookie fourth-round pick Ian Thomas instead representing the most likely candidate of the position group to see increased involvement as a pass catcher while Olsen is out.

Panthers' Alex Armah: Dealing with leg bruise
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armah did not participate in Sunday's practice due to a bruised leg, Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Armah's leg bruise isn't expected to keep him sidelined from training camp for very long, while the Panthers didn't force their lone fullback to practice Sunday. Carolina will hope to have Armah back in time for their preseason opener against the Bills on Thursday.

Panthers' Alex Armah: Inactive for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armah (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with Tampa Bay.

Armah was limited in practice on Wednesday before sitting out sessions on both Thursday and Friday. His absence will leave Carolina without a healthy fullback, possibly leading to some extra snaps for Cameron Artis-Payne or Christian McCaffrey.

Panthers' Alex Armah: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armah (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Armah finished the week as a non-participant after putting in a limited session Wednesday, which doesn't inspire confidence in his status for Sunday. The Panthers would be without a true fullback against the Buccaneers if the 23-year-old cannot play.

Panthers' Alex Armah: Sits out practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armah was held out of practice Thursday due to a hamstring injury, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The hamstring issue limited Armah at Wednesday's practice, but the fullback wasn't able to get on the field for any of the Panthers' drills during Thursday's session. Armah has been active for each of the Panthers' last five contests, but he's failed to log a single touch during that stretch. That's unlikely to change if Armah is able to play Sunday against the Buccaneers, given his role as a blocker out of the backfield.

Panthers' Alexander Armah: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armah was promoted to the Panthers' active roster Tuesday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

With tight end Greg Olsen landing on injured reserve after breaking his right foot, the Panthers will use their open roster spot to promote Armah. Armah was drafted in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft by Carolina before landing on the team's practice squad.
