2018 Fantasy Outlook
Manhertz was placed on the PUP list after suffering a foot injury in late July, but is nearing a return halfway through the preseason. The 26-year-old looks to battle Ian Thomas for the Panthers' No. 2 tight end job behind Greg Olsen. Read Past Outlooks

Will see more time with Olsen out

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.
ANALYSIS
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.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2015
Manhertz is competing to win the Panthers' third tight end spot during training camp. The 25-year-old played four games for the team last season, boosting his chances of maintaining his position.
Manhertz will compete for a roster spot as a backup tight end, but the former Canisius product is unlikely to have a fantasy impact, as he's firmly behind, at a minimum, Coby Fleeer and Josh Hill on the depth chart.
Manhertz is a big tight end early enough in his playing career that he will be a candidate for the Buffalo practice squad.
