Bridging the Gap Between "Young" and Old?’s Darin Gantt believes that WR Adam Thielen will lead the team in receptions in 2023, calling him the “favorite among that group of receivers”.

The savvy ex-Viking signed a surprisingly lucrative 3-year deal with Carolina this offseason, and it seems as though the Panthers and HC Frank Reich plan to make him a fixture in the Bryce Young-led offense. Gantt also said that Thielen would be “set up to catch a bunch of short touchdown passes this year” – something that would certainly propel Thielen to a finish well above his current WR64 ADP on Underdog.

With little established competition around him (Jonathan Mingo being a rookie, and D.J. Chark entering his first year with the team), Thielen could be a bargain barrel PPR WR3 option as Bryce Young’s safety valve.
