      Thomas caught two of four targets for 14 yards in Monday night's 12-9 loss to the Saints.

      Analysis: Thomas trailed only Christian McCaffrey in looks from Cam Newton, but considering the quarterback threw for a season-low 131 yards, there wasn't much production to go around. That unfortunately brought Thomas back to earth following a career-best nine catches for 77 yards the week prior. While he'll aim for improvement in Week 16 versus the Falcons, the health of Newton's shoulder could be important to monitor when setting expectations of Thomas. On the bright side, without Greg Olsen (foot) available anymore, the rookie remains Carolina's top option at tight end.

      Martin recorded nine tackles (four solo) across 38 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Titans.

      Analysis: Martin's nine tackles mark a new game-high for his first season in the Big Apple. He played a little over half of the defensive snaps Sunday but could see more reps in the last two contests with the Giants now officially eliminated from the playoff picture.

      Samuel caught one of four targets for 17 yards and rushed twice for eight yards in Monday night's 12-9 loss to the Saints.

      Analysis: Samuel's performance was reflective of Carolina's struggles through the air Monday, when quarterback Cam Newton finished with a season-low 131 passing yards. In fact, besides backfield dynamo Christian McCaffrey, only rarely used tight end Chris Manhertz hit 50 receiving yards, and that actually entirely came thanks to a touchdown pass from McCaffrey himself. That left just eight catches for 64 yards between Samuel, D.J. Moore, Ian Thomas and Jarius Wright, evidencing the Panthers' rough passing night. Having entered Monday with back-to-back 80-yard outings, Samuel will look to get back on track in Week 16 versus the Falcons, but Newton's ongoing shoulder issue is maybe a factor to consider going forward.

      Goodson recorded nine tackles and a pass defensed across 46 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Titans.

      Analysis: Goodson's nine tackles were the most he's had in a single game so far this season, as the linebacker played in 66 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday. He now has 50 tackles (36 solo) on the season and will look to finish out the season on a high note over these next two weeks.

      Moore caught two of three targets for 12 yards and rushed once for 22 yards before losing a fumble in Monday night's 12-9 loss to the Saints.

      Analysis: Moore was kept very quiet as quarterback Cam Newton posted a season low in passing yards. With little happening through the air, Moore couldn't help but turn in his worst receiving performance since Week 9. Even when the rookie ripped off a long run during the third quarter, it took a turn for the worst, as Moore was stripped and lost his third fumble of the year. All in all, it was a forgetful outing, and considering Newton's shoulder complications of late, it'll be interesting to see just how much Carolina's passing game can improve in the final two weeks of the regular season.
