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.
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.
Armah rushed twice for three yards in Week 10's loss to the Steelers.
Analysis: Armah now sports 14 yards on seven rushes through nine games, showing the Panthers will throw their fullback a bone every now and then.
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.
