Ted Ginn caught 2-of-3 targets for 18 yards and two touchdowns in Carolina's Week 4 win over the Bucs.
It was a dream day if you used Ginn in a DFS tournament. The veteran deep threat now has three scores on only 12 catches this season, but appears in sync with Cam Newton. Ginn was averaging 7.3 targets coming into Week 4. He'll be a fantasy no-go against the Legion of Boom in Week 6, but will remain a "pick your spots" WR4 going forward. Oct 4 - 4:58 PM

Ted Ginn caught 4-of-6 targets for 93 yards Week 3 against the Saints.

Ginn led all Panthers' wideouts in targets for the second straight week and looked dangerous as a deep threat against an overmatched Brandon Browner, who he beat for a 55-yard gain in the third quarter. Ginn is clearly the second option in the passing game behind Greg Olsen, and that gives him value. He will be a boom-or-bust WR5 next week against the Bucs.
Sep 27 - 6:01 PM

Ted Ginn caught 4-of-9 targets for 41 yards and one touchdown in the Panthers' Week 2 win over the Texans.

Ginn led all Panthers wideouts in targets, but finished second on the team behind Greg Olsen's 14 looks. On his 25-yard touchdown, Ginn beat Texans CB A.J. Buoye on a double-move and twirl up the left sideline. Ginn also committed a number of drops. He's nothing more than a WR5 but could find some success deep against a burnable Saints secondary in Week 3.
Sep 20 - 5:52 PM

Ted Ginn caught 2-of-7 targets for 54 yards Week 1 against the Jaguars.

Ginn dropped a sure touchdown in the first quarter and struggled to find separation throughout. Ginn is not a No. 1 receiver, but he has been forced into the role in the Panthers' sad receiver corps. He may have some big games, but he cannot be trusted next week against the Texans.
Sep 13 - 5:14 PM

Ted Ginn caught three passes for 30 yards in the Panthers' third preseason game.

Ginn started and was targeted six times. He outplayed Corey Brown, who struggled with drops for the second straight week. Ginn isn't on the redraft radar despite Carolina's wideout situation. He should be reduced to a situational deep threat when Devin Funchess returns.
Aug 28 - 10:22 PM

Panthers agreed to terms with KR/WR Ted Ginn on a two-year, $4.2 million deal.

Cut by Arizona last month, Ginn was free to sign immediately. Ginn spent the 2013 season in Carolina, logging 36 catches and a career-high five touchdowns while showing some deep-ball chemistry with Cam Newton. He'll replace Philly Brown as the Panthers' new primary kick returner and will fill a situational deep-threat role. He may even have to serve as Newton's No. 3 wideout.
Mar 9 - 9:17 AM

Free agent KR/WR Ted Ginn visited the Titans on Tuesday.

He'll visit the 49ers on Wednesday. Ginn played for San Francisco from 2010-2012, and the Niners are in dire need of a return man. The Titans are in the same boat with Leon Washington a free agent. Ginn isn't a threat as a receiver.
Mar 3 - 9:40 PM

The Panthers are interested in free agent WR/KR Ted Ginn.

Ginn had a renaissance year of sorts in 2013 with Carolina, before cashing in with Arizona last offseason. He would not solve the Panthers' No. 2 receiver woes, but could chip in as a sub-package wideout and special teamer.
Feb 25 - 7:56 PM

The Browns need a return specialist and ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi suggests free agent Ted Ginn could fill that role.

The Browns finished a dismal 28th in kick return average last season. They also have a need at wideout with Josh Gordon facing a year-long suspension. The fact Ginn went to high school in Cleveland and attended Ohio State only strengthens the connection. Expect Ginn to give the Browns serious consideration.
Feb 24 - 9:16 AM

Cardinals released WR Ted Ginn.

The Cardinals will eat $1.5 million in dead money, but they save $2.5 million by getting Ginn off the books, so it's a net gain. The scouting report on Ginn hasn't changed much throughout his career. He continues to be a big play threat on special teams (seven career return touchdowns) and a mediocre receiver. Ginn has played for four teams since entering the league in 2007.
Feb 23 - 5:02 PM

Ted Ginn caught four passes for 61 yards in Sunday's Week 13 loss at Atlanta.

With Larry Fitzgerald (knee) sidelined, Ginn set season-highs across the board. It's not something to count on from the return man going forward. He's still behind Michael Floyd, John Brown and Jaron Brown.

Ted Ginn caught 2-of-2 targets for 42 yards in Arizona's Week 9 win over the Cowboys.

In the first season of a three-year, $9.75 million deal, Ginn now has six catches at the midway point. He doesn't figure to get any more involved down the stretch.
Sun, Nov 2, 2014 06:10:00 PM

Ted Ginn caught 1-of-3 targets for eight yards in Arizona's Week 3 win over the 49ers, adding a four-yard rush and 10-yard pass.

Ginn completed a 10-yard pass to Michael Floyd in the fourth quarter, but the trick play was well defended. Playing second fiddle to John Brown as the Cardinals' designated deep threat, Ginn has only six targets through three games.
Sun, Sep 21, 2014 08:19:00 PM

Ted Ginn was held without a catch on one target in Sunday's preseason game against the Bengals.

Ginn has fallen behind impressive third-round rookie John Brown for No. 3 receiver duties. He'll focus strictly on returns this season.
Sun, Aug 24, 2014 11:39:00 PM

Cardinals agreed to terms with WR/KR Ted Ginn, formerly of the Panthers, on a three-year, $9.75 million contract.

Coming off a career year, Ginn will be a deep-ball specialist for vertically-obsessed coach Bruce Arians, and serve as a return man. Shutdown CB Patrick Peterson was surprisingly ineffective on punt returns in 2013, and doesn't return kicks. Ginn could do both in the desert. With Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd ahead of him on the depth chart, Ginn won't be any sort of a fantasy consideration, but will get ample opportunity to be a play-maker.
