Carolina Panthers Player No. 5: Ian Thomas (TE)

The Carolina Panthers have placed a tremendous amount of faith in Ian Thomas to become the long-term replacement for departed veteran Greg Olsen. It is something he has been waiting for since he came into the NFL. And now is the chance for him to deliver.

Although he might not be on everyone’s fantasy football radar going into the season. The former fourth-round pick could become a viable starting option at a position that has become something of a graveyard in terms of consistent points.

Thomas has some nice pass-catching prowess. But dropped passes were something of a concern for the player in 2019.

This is something Thomas could rectify with more time on the field. And he is sure to get plenty of space to work in with so many other players that can break off big plays.

Carolina Panthers Player No. 4: Robby Anderson (WR)

Another eye-catching acquisition during free agency for the Carolina Panthers was their new wide receiver, Robby Anderson. The former New York Jet can stretch the field at will. And there is no telling just what he can achieve with a more consistent quarterback under center.

Anderson linked up with Matt Rhule once again after signing a two-year, $20 million deal that is fully guaranteed. There is every chance that the wideout reaches the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career in 2020. And this makes him a nice WR3 or FLEX option going into the campaign.

Carolina Panthers Player No. 3: Curtis Samuel (WR)

This could be a breakout season for Curtis Samuel and one that makes him a sleeper pick in fantasy football. The wide receiver is a threat to score every time he touches the ball. And there are so many ways that Joe Brady can use him during a contract year for the player.

Samuel is a scary presence in open space. And he is also elusive enough to make opposing defenders miss in tight areas. Much will depend on how many targets he is given compared to others around him. But he is a tremendous option to have and even has the potential to be a WR2 fantasy player if he reaches his unbelievable potential.
