Carolina Panthers wide receiver Jonathan Mingo caught four of his six targets for 60 yards in a 17-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 12. Mingo led the team in targets and receiving yards while falling just two yards shy of tying his career high. The Panthers made it a priority to get the ball to Mingo while they only sent three targets to Adam Thielen in Week 12. If the 1-10 Panthers continue to play the young guys, Mingo could have some low-end fantasy value over the final stretch of the season. He will look to stay hot against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 13.

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Jonathan Mingo will face off against the Dallas Cowboys at home in Week 11. Mingo has been quiet in his rookie year, having caught just four passes for 25 yards over his past two games. Mingo won't find things any easier in Week 11 as the Cowboys are allowing the third-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers this season. With D.J. Chark Jr. also returning from an elbow injury that held him out of Week 10, fantasy managers would be best served to avoid Mingo in their starting lineups this weekend.

Carolina Panthers rookie wide receiver Jonathan Mingo failed to take advantage of DJ Chark Jr. (elbow) being out in the 16-13 loss to the Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football. Mingo finished with three catches on seven targets for only 20 yards. The seven targets were second-most on the team behind Adam Thielen's 10, but like most of the year, the 22-year-old failed to do much with rookie quarterback Bryce Young mostly struggling for any kind of consistency. With extra time to rest before a Week 11 clash with the Dallas Cowboys, Chark has a good chance to return, which will make Mingo even less attractive as a deep-league flex option.

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Jonathan Mingo will take on the Chicago Bears on the road in Week 10's Thursday game. Mingo had a quiet Week 9 as he caught just one of his four targets for five yards in a loss to the Indianapolis Colts. The rookie could see a larger role in Week 10 depending on the availability of D.J. Chark Jr. (elbow), who missed practice all week with an elbow issue and is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game. If Chark ultimately doesn't play against the Bears, Mingo would be a boom/bust flex option against a Chicago defense that is allowing the 15th-most fantasy points per game to opposing wideouts. If Chark does end up playing, Mingo can be left on fantasy benches.

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Jonathan Mingo will take on the Indianapolis Colts at home in Week 9. Mingo is coming off the best game of his career as he caught four passes for 62 yards in a win over the Houston Texans last week. He will look to stay hot against a Colts secondary that is allowing the 15th-most fantasy points per game to opposing wideouts in 2023. Mingo isn't a safe fantasy option with Adam Thielen hogging most of the work in Carolina but he's on the radar as a desperation flex heading into Week 9.
Nov 3, 2023 6:24 PM EST
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Jonathan Mingo comes out of his bye week to take on the Houston Texans in Week 8. Mingo has been quiet thus far in his rookie season, having caught just 15 passes for 133 yards and zero touchdowns in five games. He could start playing a larger role on offense, however, after having a Week 7 bye to further acclimate himself to the offense. He does draw a tough matchup in Week 8 against a Houston Texans defense that is allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing wideouts, so this is probably not the week to play him outside of very deep leagues. Mingo is best left on the bench heading into Week 8's contests.

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Jonathan Mingo returned from a Week 4 concussion to play a full-time role in a Week 5 loss to the Detroit Lions. Mingo will now head on the road to face off against the Miami Dolphins in Week 6. Miami has one of the highest-scoring offenses in the league, which will put pressure on the Panthers to throw frequently, a fact that benefits secondary receivers like Mingo. Overall, the Dolphins are allowing the 14th-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers. Mingo isn't a safe play by any stretch but he is on the radar as a desperation flex for fantasy managers who have been hit hard by injuries or Week 6 byes.
Oct 13, 2023 7:46 AM EST
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Jonathan Mingo (concussion) will play in a road game against the Detroit Lions in Week 5. Mingo missed Week 4's loss to the Minnesota Vikings after suffering a concussion in the previous game. He comes into Week 5 without an injury designation and appears to be all systems go for his team's matchup against Detroit. The Lions are allowing the 17th-most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers through four games. Mingo was playing a lot of snaps before the injury but was unable to translate that playing time into much production on the field, with just eight receptions for 64 yards across three contests. He sets up as a WR5 in fantasy for Week 5.
Oct 7, 2023 8:21 AM EST
Carolina Panthers rookie wide receiver Jonathan Mingo (concussion) has officially been ruled out for the Week 4 game on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Mingo suffered a concussion in the Week 3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks and was unable to clear the concussion protocol before this Sunday's game. He was only able to get in a limited practice this week, so it remains to be seen if he'll be able to return for a Week 5 matchup against the Lions in Detroit. Mingo has gotten off to a slow start in his first three NFL games and is really only worth stashing in dynasty/keeper leagues for now. With Mingo out, Terrace Marshall Jr. should serve as Carolina's No. 3 wideout against Minnesota behind Adam Thielen and DJ Chark Jr.
Oct 1, 2023 12:19 PM EST
Carolina Panthers rookie wide receiver Jonathan Mingo (concussion) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable to play on Sunday in a Week 4 tilt against the Minnesota Vikings. Mingo was able to shed his non-contact jersey at practice on Friday, but the 22-year-old still hasn't been completely cleared from the league's concussion protocol and may not play this weekend. Even if he's able to suit up, he's a pretty risky flex play in deeper fantasy leagues. In his first three NFL games, Mingo has put up only eight catches on 19 targets for 64 yards. If Mingo is ruled inactive on Sunday, Terrace Marshall Jr. should serve as the No. 3 wideout for Carolina behind Adam Thielen and DJ Chark Jr.
Sep 29, 2023 2:37 PM EST
Contrary to a previous report, Carolina Panthers rookie wide receiver Jonathan Mingo (concussion) was able to put in a limited practice on Wednesday. Head coach Frank Reich said earlier that Mingo wouldn't practice, but that wasn't the case and the 22-year-old appears to be making some progress in the league's concussion protocol after he suffered a concussion in the Week 3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Still, Mingo isn't a lock to play this Sunday as the Panthers look for their first win of the season against the 0-3 Minnesota Vikings. Mingo is shaping up as a flex option to avoid in deeper fantasy leagues. If he does not play, Terrace Marshall Jr. and Laviska Shenault Jr. will vie for more playing time behind Adam Thielen and DJ Chark Jr.
Sep 27, 2023 3:55 PM EST
Carolina Panthers rookie wide receiver Jonathan Mingo (concussion) will not take part in practice on Wednesday. Mingo is in the league's concussion protocol after suffering a concussion in the Week 3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He'll have to pass through the protocols at some point this week to get the green light to suit up this Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. The 22-year-old second-rounder has plenty of long-term intrigue with quarterback Bryce Young, but he'll be inconsistent for fantasy managers in single-year leagues in 2023 behind Adam Thielen and DJ Chark Jr. In his first three NFL games, Mingo has secured eight of 19 targets for 64 yards and no touchdowns.
Sep 27, 2023 1:14 PM EST
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Jonathan Mingo (concussion) is in concussion protocol after getting banged up in the team's Week 3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The rookie wideout caught three passes on six targets for 21 yards before exiting Sunday's game. His status for the Week 4 contest with the Minnesota Vikings is uncertain, but usually, players will miss at least a week with a head injury. Either way, Mingo is not on the fantasy radar after totaling just eight receptions for 61 yards through three career games. In his absence, Adam Thielen and DJ Chark should see more targets. Andy Dalton might start another game while No. 1 overall pick Bryce Young (ankle) tries to get back to full strength.
Sep 25, 2023 2:06 PM EST
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Jonathan Mingo (head) won't return to Sunday's meeting with the Seattle Seahawks. The rookie was heavily involved in this one, catching three of his six targets for 21 yards before his exit because of a concussion. But now that he's out, Terrace Marshall Jr. and Hayden Hurst could see more looks from Andy Dalton for the rest of the contest. Mingo will likely undergo further tests and make an appearance on the injury report ahead of the Week 4 meeting with the Vikings.
Sep 24, 2023 6:16 PM EST
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Jonathan Mingo is off to a quiet start through his first two games of the season, catching five of 13 targets for 43 yards. That being said, Mingo is barely coming off of the field for the Panthers as he has logged 92.7% of the offensive snaps thus far. While he has yet to post a big game, a breakout could be in the near future for the rookie if he's able to start connecting on some of his looks through the air. He now will face off against the Seattle Seahawks on the road in Week 3. Seattle has been a plus matchup for receivers through the first two games of the season as they are allowing the fourth-most fantasy points per game to the position. Mingo isn't a must-start but he should be rostered in deeper leagues moving forward.
Sep 21, 2023 7:37 PM EST
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Jonathan Mingo caught three of his eight targets for 26 yards in a 20-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 2. Mingo's eight targets finished second on the team, but he and quarterback Bryce Young had trouble connecting in the contest. Mingo's longest catch went for 22 yards but it wasn't enough in the close loss to the Saints. The rookie wideout has now caught five passes for 43 yards over the first two games of the season. He will face off against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3.
Sep 18, 2023 10:51 PM EST
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Jonathan Mingo turned in a quiet debut last week, catching just two of his five targets for 17 yards in a 24-10 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. He will look for a bigger outing against the New Orleans Saints on Monday night in Week 2. The Saints were tough on fantasy receivers last season, allowing just the 23rd-most fantasy points per game to the position. With rookie quarterback Bryce Young spreading the ball around, Mingo will be hard to trust in fantasy until he posts a breakout game. Treat him as a low-end flex option this weekend.
Sep 15, 2023 9:12 PM EST
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Jonathan Mingo caught two of his five targets for 17 yards in a 24-10 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2. Mingo finished third on the team in targets but was unable to capitalize on the chances in the loss to the Falcons. The second-round rookie remains a work in progress, although it bears mentioning that many of his fellow rookie wide receivers fared well in their respective NFL debuts in Week 1. Mingo is a low-end flex option in fantasy heading into Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints.
Sep 10, 2023 10:59 PM EST
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Jonathan Mingo will make his NFL debut on the road against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1. Mingo, a second-round pick in the 2023 draft, will be relied upon by the Panthers to give rookie quarterback Bryce Young a downfield target in what they hope is a revamped passing attack. Mingo could see a heavy workload in Week 1 considering Adam Thielen (ankle) and D.J. Chark (hamstring) are both questionable for Week 1 and missed practice on Thursday. If Thielen and Chark don't play, Mingo becomes an interesting flex option in deeper fantasy leagues. Otherwise, he settles in as a WR5.
Sep 7, 2023 9:31 PM EST
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Jonathan Mingo caught one of his two targets for 14 yards in a 26-17 preseason loss to the Detroit Lions on Friday. Mingo got the start and hauled in his catch on Carolina's first play of the game, giving the Panthers a first down. The rookie wideout has played extensively with the first-team offense this preseason, accumulating two catches for 29 yards. D.J. Chark is currently dealing with a hamstring issue that could hold him out for the near future, opening the door for more targets for Mingo. He's worth a look as an upside WR5 in fantasy drafts this summer.
