Ian Thomas, TE, Carolina Panthers
Greg Olsen (concussion) did not play in Week 14 against the Atlanta Falcons, and Thomas stepped in with five receptions (on 10 targets) for 57 yards and a touchdown. If Olsen misses another game in Week 15, Thomas gets a great matchup.
Entering Week 14, the Seattle Seahawks were allowing the second-most fantasy points to tight ends (Yahoo! 0.5-point PPR). Then last Sunday night, Rams tight end Tyler Higbee posted seven catches for 116 yards against them.
Olsen’s status will drive Thomas’ fantasy outlook for Week 15, and beyond. But if you really need a good option, adding Thomas is a solid speculation move.
