Panthers TE Ian Thomas getting noticed this summer

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

The Panthers are beginning to feel like they have hit on something big with fourth-round draft pick Ian Thomas.

The rookie tight end has carried over an outstanding performance in training camp to the preseason, where he showed an impressive burst of speed on a 27-yard catch-and-run touchdown reception from Cam Newton, and delivered a powerful seal block that helped spring Christian McCaffrey for a 71-yard touchdown in Friday night’s preseason win over the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact:

After not getting a ton of receptions at Indiana, Carolina’s scouts became convinced Thomas has what it takes to be a playmaker and general manager Marty Hurney was sold on him as he studied more film. Olsen is still the guy in Carolina but after missing time last year the Panthers acquired a young player at the position who looks like he could eventually make an impact.

Scouting Report

Week 6 at Washington Redskins

Cam Newton had an off game against the Giants, throwing two interceptions and gaining only 29 yards on eight rushing attempts. He did throw for 237 yards and a pair of touchdowns, but it was ultimately a disappointing day for fantasy owners counting on Newton.

This week, Cam will face a Washington team that just gave up big numbers to Drew Brees and the Saints. Cam should continue to be the primary cog that moves the Panthers offense, and he’s a must-start every week, regardless of matchup.
