Panthers WR Tiquan Underwood "dropped passes throughout OTAs."
Underwood looked like he had a chance to start when the Panthers signed him to a two-year deal in March, but he's fallen down the totem pole. Carolina's top-three receivers are now Kelvin Benjamin, Jerricho Cotchery, and Jason Avant. 27-year-old Underwood could still be a useful situational deep threat. Jul 20 - 1:26 PM

ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton believes Tiquan Underwood is currently one of the top-three wide receivers in Carolina.

That is largely an indictment of Carolina's receiver corps. Underwood is more suited to be a depth piece and situational deep threat, but he will be asked to do more for a Panthers team in desperate need of wideout help. Underwood has a shot to surpass his career-high 440 receiving yards this season.

Panthers signed WR Tiquan Underwood, formerly of the Bucs, to a two-year contract.

Underwood and Jerricho Cotchery now sit atop the Carolina depth chart at receiver. Underwood, 27, had a career-year last season, catching 24 passes for 440 yards and four touchdowns. He started seven games opposite Vincent Jackson while Mike Williams was sidelined. Underwood owns a career 16.0 YPR mark and will provide a sneaky deep threat for Cam Newton.

Free agent Tiquan Underwood is visiting the Panthers on Thursday.

The well-traveled veteran would be little more than a flier for the receiver-needy Panthers, though he caught 24 passes for a career-high 440 yards with the Bucs last season. Underwood would have a strong chance at cracking the 53-man roster in Carolina.
Mar 20 - 3:43 PM

Tiquan Underwood caught five passes for 93 yards and one touchdown in Week 17 at New Orleans.

Underwood saw seven targets and snuck behind the defense for a 48-yard score in the first quarter. He appeared in 13 games after re-signing with the Bucs after the first month of the season and started eight games after Mike Williams was lost for the year to a hamstring injury. Underwood set new career-highs across the board with a 29-533-5 line. He'll be a free agent in March but has proved he can be serviceable depth.

Tiquan Underwood caught one pass for seven yards in Tampa's Week 16 loss to the Rams.

Underwood now has just three grabs for 22 yards over his past three games. No. 2 receiver is not a fantasy-relevant position in the Bucs' offense.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 06:38:00 PM

Tiquan Underwood caught two passes for 15 yards in the Bucs' Week 15 loss to the 49ers.

Other than the Detroit game where he scored two touchdowns, Underwood has been a total dud in Tampa Bay's No. 2 receiver role with Mike Williams (hamstring) on I.R. Underwood has very little re-draft or Dynasty league value.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 05:33:00 PM

Bucs WR Tiquan Underwood was held catch-less in Tampa's Week 14 win over Buffalo.

Despite his fluky big game in Week 12 against the Lions, Bucs No. 2 wide receiver Underwood is not a factor during the fantasy playoffs.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 04:51:00 PM

Tiquan Underwood caught three passes for 51 yards in Tampa's Week 13 loss to the Panthers.

Underwood was limited to four targets on an afternoon where an ineffective Mike Glennon was called on for only 21 pass attempts. Running as the Bucs' clear No. 2 receiver, Underwood has cleared 50 yards in three of his past four games, but caught just 10 passes in the process. He can't be trusted for the fantasy playoffs.
Sun, Dec 1, 2013 05:56:00 PM

Tiquan Underwood torched the Lions for three catches, 108 yards, and two touchdowns in the Bucs' Week 12 win.

Underwood had managed stat lines of 2-29-1, 3-64, and 1-20 in his previous three starts in place of Mike Williams, so this explosion essentially came out of nowhere. He can't be trusted in 12-team leagues at Carolina in Week 12.
Sun, Nov 24, 2013 05:26:00 PM

Tiquan Underwood was held to one catch for 20 yards in the Bucs' Week 11 win over the Falcons.

Underwood has been a predictable dud since Mike Williams was lost for the season. Leave him on the waiver wire ahead of a Week 12 tilt with Detroit.
Sun, Nov 17, 2013 05:00:00 PM

Tiquan Underwood caught three passes for 64 yards in Week 10 against the Dolphins.

Underwood was targeted five times and led the team in receiving. Stepping in as the new No. 2 receiver in Mike Williams' (hamstring) absence, Underwood has become the No. 3 option in the passing game. It's still not going to translate to big statistical outputs. Underwood is nothing more than a WR4/5.
Tue, Nov 12, 2013 12:38:00 AM

Tiquan Underwood caught two passes for 29 yards and a touchdown in the Bucs' Week 9 loss to the Seahawks.

Underwood's touchdown catch consisted of him running around in the back of the end zone and getting by Brandon Browner's coverage. He will not be a strong WR3 play when the Bucs host the Dolphins in Week 10.
Sun, Nov 3, 2013 07:54:00 PM

Coach Greg Schiano confirmed Monday that Tiquan Underwood will be the Bucs' new No. 2 receiver opposite Vincent Jackson.

Mike Williams was sent to I.R. with a hamstring tear. Underwood (6'1/183) has just four receptions for 53 yards on the season, rotating in Tampa's No. 3 receiver role with Chris Owusu. Owusu now figures to be the clear No. 3 wideout, although there is little fantasy appeal here behind target monster Vincent Jackson. Underwood is still worth owning in 14- and 16-team leagues because he's now an every-down player on a team that figures to trail a lot.
Mon, Oct 28, 2013 01:10:00 PM

Tiquan Underwood caught three passes for 47 yards in Week 8 against the Panthers.

Underwood was the No. 3 receiver role with Chris Owusu (foot) sidelined. He was only targeted four times in the passing game and got the majority of his yardage in the second half. Underwood has just four catches for 53 yards this season and remains off the fantasy radar.
