Panthers Place Jonathan Mingo On Injured Reserve

Tuesday, January 2, 7:16 PM

The Carolina Panthers placed rookie wide receiver Jonathan Mingo (foot) on Injured Reserve on Tuesday with a foot injury and signed veteran running back Mike Boone to their practice squad in a corresponding move. Mingo will now miss the final game of his rookie season in Week 18 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 22-year-old second-rounder predictably had an inconsistent first year in the NFL while working with struggling first-round quarterback Bryce Young. In 15 games played, Mingo caught 43 of his 85 targets for 418 yards and no touchdowns. Mingo and Young will continue to work on their chemistry this offseason in hopes of connecting more often in 2024. With Mingo sidelined this weekend, Terrance Marshall Jr. should be active, while Ihmir Smith-Marsette and Mike Strachan should have bigger roles behind Adam Thielen and DJ Chark Jr.

Dontayvion Wicks A Cheap Boom-Or-Bust DFS Option

Friday, January 19, 4:45 PM

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Dontayvion Wicks will go on the road to take on the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs on Saturday. The rookie scored the first passing touchdown of the day last week against the Dallas Cowboys but ended with only two receptions for 25 yards. With all of the Packers' pass catchers back healthy, Wicks' role has diminished. Even in a positive matchup, the 22-year-old is a risky dart throw due to the sheer number of weapons at the Packers' disposal. Christian Watson, Jayden Reed, and Romeo Doubs are all better options in DFS, but Wicks will be in play for the bargain hunters trying to pick sneaky options in tournaments.
