Ted Ginn his lone target for five yards in the Panthers' Week 5 loss to the Bucs.

The 31-year-old deep threat have been anything but that through five games. He's yet to score a touchdown, and his role has evaporated with Kelvin Benjamin healthy and Greg Olsen playing at an elite level. Ginn also was credited with a lost fumble in the defeat, as he was run into by his own teammate while trying to field a punt. Ginn isn't worth owning in 12-team leagues.
Oct 11 - 12:26 AM

Ted Ginn (foot) and Devin Funchess (foot) are both active for Monday night's Week 5 game against the Bucs.

Both were listed as questionable. Mike Tolbert (hamstring) and DE Charles Johnson (quad) are active as well. Inactive for the Panthers are QB Cam Newton (concussion), RB Jonathan Stewart (hamstring), LT Michael Oher (concussion), WR Damiere Byrd, CB James Bradberry, LB Jeremy Cash, and DT Vernon Butler. Derek Anderson will get the start in place on Newton.
Oct 10 - 7:13 PM

Ted Ginn (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 5.

He's fully expected to play on Monday night. Ginn is averaging four targets per game this season.
Oct 8 - 3:31 PM

Ted Ginn (foot) was limited in Thursday's practice.

We'd guess the Panthers are just limiting Ginn's reps ahead of Monday Night Football. The deep threat is a barely-there WR5 for fantasy purposes.
Oct 6 - 2:41 PM

Ted Ginn caught 2-of-4 targets for 14 yards in the Panthers' Week 4 loss to the Falcons.

Devin Funchess was more involved this afternoon, making Ginn an even shakier bet than usual. The veteran deep threat is on pace for 32/528 with a quarter of the year in the books.
Oct 2 - 5:47 PM

Ted Ginn caught 3-of-7 targets for 62 yards in the Panthers' Week 3 loss to the Vikings.

Ginn was a leg tackle away from a long touchdown in the first quarter. Ginn remains ahead of Devin Funchess on the depth chart, but well behind Kelvin Benjamin. He's a moonshot WR5.
Sep 25 - 6:04 PM

Ted Ginn caught 2-of-5 targets for 51 yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over the 49ers.

Ginn had a touchdown overturned in the first quarter, but remained a non-factor behind Kelvin Benjamin and Greg Olsen. He muffed a punt that led to a 49ers touchdown in the second half. Ginn is droppable in re-draft leagues.
Sep 18 - 5:55 PM

Ted Ginn hauled in his only target for five yards Thursday night against the Broncos.

Ginn saw plenty of work with the first-team offense, but he was not targeted until the final offensive play of the game, a nice sideline catch to get the Panthers in better field goal position. Graham Gano missed anyway. He did gain 20 yards on an end around early in the game, but it looks like his role will be fluid week-to-week. He is at best an upside bench stash.
Sep 9 - 12:27 AM

Ted Ginn caught 2-of-6 targets for 18 yards Friday night against the Patriots.

Ginn did not look great Friday night and dropped two passes in the two-minute drill, but he did make something out of nothing on a screen pass and was inches away from connecting on a long pass in the first half. He also continues to play in two-wide sets over Devin Funchess, and actually saw the most snaps with the first-team offense. Ginn will be even more boom-or-bust this season, but he should return value, especially in best-ball leagues.
Aug 26 - 11:00 PM

Ted Ginn caught a 61-yard touchdown in the Panthers' second preseason game Saturday afternoon.

Ted Ginn giveth, Ted Ginn giveth away. Ginn giveth against the Titans, turning an intermediate target in traffic into a house call when he caught Cam Newton's bullet deep down the middle and outraced Tennessee's secondary to pay dirt. Ginn looks to be a staple in two-receiver sets across from Kelvin Benjamin. He's one of our favorite late-round targets in best-ball drafts.
Aug 20 - 5:25 PM

The Panthers could use Ted Ginn on kick returns.

With Kelvin Benjamin returning, Ginn doesn’t project for more than a situational deep threat role on offense. The Panthers want to use special teams to get him more touches. Ginn will also remain Carolina’s punt returner.
Jul 24 - 9:12 AM

Ted Ginn caught 4-of-10 targets for 74 yards in the Panthers' Super Bowl loss to the Broncos.

Ginn was catch-less until he got wide open deep down the middle for a 45-yard gain early in the second half, setting up a 44-yard field goal that was shanked off the upright by Graham Gano. A third-quarter Ginn drop deep down the middle directly resulted in a deflected interception to Broncos ILB Danny Trevathan. Ginn ran out of bounds too frequently and was an unreliable passing-game target for most of the year, despite his obvious big-play ability. Ginn turns 31 this April and is owed a reasonable $1.4 million. He'll be back with the Panthers, but ideally with a much smaller role than Ginn was forced to play in 2015.
Feb 7 - 10:50 PM

Ted Ginn secured 2-of-2 targets for 52 yards and rushed once for a 22-yard touchdown in the Panthers' NFC Championship Game win over the Cardinals.

Shadowed by Patrick Peterson, Ginn got open in Peterson's coverage for a gain of 13 on Carolina's first drive. A possession later, Ginn peeled off an explosive 32-yard punt return, slipping on the turf at the end or else he might've been gone. The return set up Ginn's 22-yard touchdown run on a reverse. Late in the first half, Ginn drew a holding call on Peterson for an automatic first down. Ginn's big play in the second half went deep down the left sideline, gaining 39 yards behind Jerraud Powers. Ginn was the Panthers' biggest playmaker in the first half of Sunday's contest. He'll mainly deal with Broncos RCB Bradley Roby in the Super Bowl.
Jan 24 - 10:12 PM

Ted Ginn didn't catch his lone target in the Panthers' Divisional Round win over the Seahawks.

Returning from a knee injury after sitting out Week 17, Ginn simply wasn't much of a factor. Cam Newton threw for just 161 yards, as the Panthers hammered the run in the first half before getting shutout in the second half. Ginn will likely see a heavy dose of Patrick Peterson in the NFC Championship.
