Alex Armah: Catches one pass

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

Analysis: 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.

Alex Armah: Rushes twice Sunday

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

Analysis: 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. 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.

Alex Armah: Scores touchdown this season

Armah finished the 2019 season with six rushes for 11 yards and a touchdown in 16 games played. He also caught two passes for six yards.

Analysis: Armah again served as Carolina's fullback this year and although that role doesn't lend itself to much fantasy value, he was at least rewarded with a one-yard touchdown plunge in Week 1. The veteran remains under contract with the Panthers next season, but Armah hardly factors in from a traditional statistical standpoint.

Alex Armah: Sprinkled in Sunday

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

Analysis: 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.

Alex Armah: Could factor into tight-end mix

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.

Analysis: 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 are expected to draw many targets whenever they're 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.
