Panthers release Tiquan Underwood


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) The Panthers released receiver Tiquan Underwood, reports Pro Football Talk.

Paper predicts roles for Panthers receivers


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) Jerricho Cotchery and rookie Kelvin Benjamin will start while Jason Avant works as the third receiver. That's the prediction of how the Panthers will re-stock their receiving corps according to the Charlotte Observer

The paper thinks Tiquan Underwood might have cost himself an opportunity after dropping a lot of passes through the OTAs. Rarely-used receivers Marvin McNutt and Tavarres King don't look like full-time players just yet. The paper suggested Brenton Bersin as a candidate to step into a small role -- the 6-foot-3, 210-pound receiver is a favorite of Cam Newton's and he knows every receiving spot, which the coaches like. 

Carolina's offense figures to use more two-tight end sets with Greg Olsen and Ed Dickson the primary weapons. 


Panthers receivers could be better in 2014


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) The Panthers entire receiving corps has been overhauled this season, but ESPN reports the unit could be better this year.

Gone are Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell, Ted Ginn and Domenik Hixon. In their place are rookie Kelvin Benjamin and veterans in Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and Tiquan Underwood.

The report says Smith at 35 was no better than a No. 2 receiver and at the end of his career. LaFell, Ginn and Hixon really weren't big losses when you look at it closely.

The key here will be chemistry, but Benjamin looks like a red zone beast at 6-foot-5 and 240 pounds and Cotchery and Avant are solid possession receivers, who are more dependable than the players they replaced.


Panthers WRs set to catch Cam Newton's passes soon


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/11/2014) The Panthers open training camp on July 26 but the receivers will begin working with quarterback Cam Newton next week in Charlotte, wideout Tiquan Underwood told USA Today on Thursday. 

"It's been more difficult because Cam's coming off an ankle injury and he had to get surgery, so we couldn't throw with him as much as we would like," Underwood said. " ... We're just going to try to speed up the process. We're all going to throw -- Derek Anderson, Cam Newton, Joe Webb, Matt Blanchard and all the receivers -- just to work on timing and get that down pat before camp."

Newton has barely practiced with his receivers this offseason as he's recovered from ankle surgery. Nearly all of his receivers are new to the Panthers -- Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and Underwood all signed as free agents while Kelvin Benjamin was taken with the team's first-round pick.

Any chemistry Newton can develop with his receivers before camp starts would be considered a huge plus for the Panthers offense. 


Almost 50 catches for Tiquan Underwood?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/30/2014) After a nice series of offseason workouts, Panthers receiver Tiquan Underwood was pegged by ESPN as a breakout candidate. That's because he'll fill the role previously held by Ted Ginn, a spot that caught 36 passes and five scores as a deep-ball receiver in 2013.

Underwood had 24 grabs and four touchdowns in a similar role with the Bucs last season, and with offensive coordinator Mike Shula familiar with his game and receivers coach Ricky Proehl pitching in, ESPN believes the potential is there for him to double his production


Cam Newton needed Kelvin Benjamin


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) No quarterback needed a receiver more than Cam Newton, and thankfully the Panthers gave him one Thursday night in the first round of the NFL Draft. With pick No. 28, the Panthers selected Kelvin Benjamin from Florida State.

Benjamin immediately becomes the best receiver in Carolina (tight end Greg Olsen is obviously the best weapon, but we're talking just wideouts). After losing Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell and Ted Ginn this offseason, the Panthers went into Thursday night with Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and Tiquan Underwood atop the depth chart. Yes, you read that right.

We're not expecting Benjamin to become an elite Fantasy receiver, but this is a great opportunity. In two seasons with the Seminoles (27 games) Benjamin posted 1,452 yards on 80 catches with 18 touchdowns -- 14 last season. He was a great weapon for Jameis Winston for the Seminoles, and we hope he does the same for Newton. At 6-foot-5, 240 pounds he is a great target.

Newton, who is coming off ankle surgery, is still a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback on Draft Day because of his lack of weapons. But if Benjamin can develop quickly, and Newton goes back to running more, his value will rise.

As for Benjamin, he's worth a late-round flier in re-draft leagues. And he's a second-round pick in rookie-only formats.


Report: Tiquan Underwood now a Panther


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) The Panthers have signed free agent wide receiver Tiquan Underwood, a league source has told Pro Football Talk.

Underwood snagged 24 passes for 440 yards and four touchdowns for Tampa Bay in 2013, but finished with a flourish. He had five receptions for 93 yards and a score in the season finale against New Orleans.


Tiquan Underwood takes flea-flicker to the house in loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Buccaneers wide receiver Tiquan Underwood has a penchant for catching long passes, as his 18.3 YPC average this year attests. So it came as little surprise that he snagged a 48-yard touchdown strike from quarterback Mike Glennon in the middle of the first quarter Sunday at New Orleans. What was a surprise was how open Underwood got on the flea-flicker.

Underwood didn't stop there. He caught two more passes before halftime and finished with a season-high five receptions for 93 yards to end the year on a high note. He ends the year with four scores among his 24 catches.



Buccaneers get little from reserve receivers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Buccaneers wide receivers Chris Owusu and Tiquan Underwood failed to get anything going in Week 16, in a 23-13 loss to the Rams.

The Buccaneers finished the game with just 158 yards through the air, and 98 of those went to Vincent Jackson, leaving little left over. Owusu finished third on the team with 13 yards on two receptions, and Underwood had just 7 yards on a single reception.

The Buccaneers season ends in Week 17 against the Saints. 


Three Tampa players make it onto stat sheet Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Buccaneers running back Brian Leonard, wide receiver Chris Owusu and wide receiver Tiquan Underwood all had minor contributions during a 33-14 loss Week 15 vs. San Francisco.

Leonard managed one catch for 12 yards. He didn't record any catches despite being targeted twice.

Owusu was targeted five times, totaling three catches for 21 yards. Underwood was also targeted five times, totaling two catches for 15 yards.

The Bucs are back in action Week 16 at St. Louis.


Tiquan Underwood shut out in winning effort


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Buccaneers wide receiver Tiquan Underwood was held without a catch in Week 14 against the Bills Sunday, in a 27-6 win. Underwood was unable to haul in any of the five passes thrown his way by Mike Glennon, though he wasn't alone in that regard. Glennon completed just nine passes in the game.

Underwood has seen his yardage total decrease by almost exactly 50 in the last three games, going from 108 yards in Week 12, to 51 last week. He will try to get back on track in Week 15, against the 49ers. 


Tiquan Underwood could be sleeper option for deep formats


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) Buccaneers wide receiver Tiquan Underwood is in the midst of one of the best stretches of his NFL career, but does that mean Fantasy owners should trust him heading into Week 14 vs. Buffalo?

Underwood has been a nice deep option for the Bucs, averaging a career-high 20.3 yards per reception, but it certainly makes him a boom-or-bust player in Fantasy because he doesn't rack up a ton of receptions. He hasn't had more than three catches in a game this year, and he only surpassed 100 yards a few weeks ago against the Lions thanks to an 85-yard touchdown catch.

The Bills are a decent matchup on paper for Underwood. Wide receivers average 27 Fantasy points per week against Buffalo, which is the third-highest average. Wide receivers also average 194.9 receiving yards per game, but Buffalo has played better against receivers lately. In the last four games, wide receivers have averaged just 16.3 Fantasy points and totaled one touchdown.

Perhaps one of the most intriguing things about Underwood's matchup Week 14 is that secondary receivers have done well against the Bills this season. It's a long list of players like Julian Edelman, Ted Ginn, Stephen Hill, Marlon Brown, Greg Little, Marvin Jones, Brandon Gibson, Kenny Stills, Lance Moore, Jerricho Cotchery and Harry Douglas.

Perhaps if you are in a deep league and looking for a sleeper Week 14, then Underwood fits the bill. But he's really not an option for shallow formats because he needs to get a big play to make a difference.


Tiquan Underwood fades after hot start


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2013) After breaking out with a 108-yard, two-touchdown performance at Detroit in Week 12, Buccaneers wide receiver Tiquan Underwood looked like he was in for a big follow-up early Week 13 at Carolina. He caught quarterback Mike Glennon's first two pass attempts for a combined 39 yards. But unfortunately, after a 12-yard grab to end the first quarter, he didn't have another reception the rest of the way.

Despite the lackluster performance, Underwood's three receptions actually tied for the team lead on a day when Glennon attempted only 21 passes. The 51 yards were the third-most he's had in a game this season.

With Mike Williams done for the year with a hamstring injury, Underwood will continue to play a significant role in the passing game going forward. He'll look to step up his production in what figures to be a more favorable matchup Week 14 against the Bills.


Tiquan Underwood riding momentum into Week 13


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/27/2013) Buccaneers wide receiver Tiquan Underwood has seen five targets in two of his last three games. He's scored three touchdowns in his last four. And he's gone over 60 receiving yards twice in the last three.

Underwood isn't your typical No. 2 receiver -- and he is tough to rely on because much of his output comes from the big play. However, the Panthers have been somewhat susceptible to the big play receivers this season. Mike Wallace, Kenbrell Thompkins, Harry Douglas, and Brian Quick have all made big plays and had relative Fantasy success against the Panthers over the last six weeks. And Underwood had a decent game against Carolina when the teams first met in Week 8, catching three passes for 47 yards.

With byes no longer a concern, Underwood is best left to deeper (16-18 teams) formats, and then has to be counted on to catch a long pass from Glennon. But he is the right player for this matchup -- a deep threat who can give a Fantasy owner a long touchdown.

Tiquan Underwood establishes career mark with two scores


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Buccaneers wide receiver Tiquan Underwood had twice snagged three passes in a game this season. He had also scored once. But he had not put it all together until he traveled with his team to Detroit to play the Lions on Sunday.

Underwood caught three passes for 108 yards and managed the first two-touchdown performance of his career. The second was a doozy - an 85-yard bomb from quarterback Mike Glennon in the fourth quarter that put his team in front for good.

He will try to take his momentum and run with it next Snday against the Panthers.


Buccaneers get small contributions


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/17/2013) Buccaneers wide receiver Tiquan Underwood, running back Michael Hill, fullback Erik Lorig and tight end Tom Crabtree all made small contributions Week 11 against the Falcons. Underwood had one catch for 20 yards. Hill had three carries for 3 yards. Lorig had one catch for 3 yards. Crabtree had one catch for 5 yards.

Among the four, Underwood is by far the most regular contributor on offense, actually leading the team with 64 receiving yards last week against the Dolphins. Still, he has just 10 total receptions on the year.


Tiquan Underwood leads Bucs with 64 receiving yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2013) Buccaneers receiver Tiquan Underwood caught a 30-yard sideline pattern on the opening possession Week 10 and finished with three grabs for a team-high 64 yards. Over the last three games, Underwood has seven catches for 140 yards and a touchdown.

Targeted five times vs. Miami, Underwood set a season high in receiving yards. He plays the Falcons in Week 11.


Tiquan Underwood a risky start


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/7/2013) Buccaneers wide receiver Tiquan Underwood caught his first touchdown of the season in Week 9, a 20-yard pass against a tough Seahawks defense. He finished the game with two receptions for 29 yards, following up a three-catch, 47-yard game in Week 8. 

Underwood's role in the passing game in the post-Mike Williams era is still a little unclear. While he only caught five total passes in the last two weeks, those came against two of the league's toughest pass defenses. The Dolphins allow a decent amount of passing yards, but not a lot of touchdowns, so they may be a better litmus test for Underwood going forward. 

He's still not worth a pickup in most formats, but Underwood should be on Scout Teams as a possible asset in deeper leagues. 


Tiquan Underwood scores first TD of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Buccaneers wide receiver Tiquan Underwood found the end zone for the first time this season during Sunday’s contest against the Seahawks in Week 9.

Underwood caught a 20-yard pass from Mike Glennon in the second quarter. He was targeted three times and finished with two catches for 29 yards and a touchdowns in a 27-24 defeat.

With Mike Williams placed on injured reserve, Underwood has seen more work in the passing game. He has been targeted seven times and has five receptions for 76 yards in his last two games. He'll look to keep scoring in Week 10 at home against the Dolphins.

Tiquan Underwood finds room to succeed


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/25/2013) Buccaneers wide receiver Tiquan Underwood found some success in Week 8 against the Panthers, in a 31-13 loss Thursday.

Underwood, who had appeared in just two games earlier in the season, had his first multi-catch game. He hauled in three of four passes thrown his way, finishing with 47 yards.

Underwood has just four catches for 53 yards on the season. 


Buccaneers get fringe contributions


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/20/2013) Though they didn't play a big role on offense, running back Brian Leonard, tight end Tom Crabtree and wide receiver Tiquan Underwood all made statistical contributions for the Buccaneers Week 7 at Atlanta. Leonard had two carries for six yards and one catch for 9, and Crabtree had one catch for 14.

Underwood had only one catch for 6, but his performance would have been more memorable had an illegal use of hands penalty on offensive lineman Davin Joseph not negated a 13-yard touchdown grab late in the fourth quarter. Officially, Underwood had just the one target.


Tiquan Underwood with poor Week 6


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) Buccaneers wide receiver Tiquan Underwood was flagged for offensive pass interference during the Week 6 home game against Philadelphia Sunday. He did not come down with a catch in the game.

Targeted four times by quarterback Mike Glennon, Underwood did not make a grab. The 26-year-old WR has yet to catch a pass this season for Tampa Bay. The Bucs play at Atlanta Week 7.

Bucs still searching for reliable No. 3 receiver


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2013) The Buccaneers are still looking for a third receiver to emerge behind Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams. Rookie quarterback Mike Glennon, who will be making his second career start Week 6 vs. Philadelphia, feels Tiquan Underwood or Chris Owusu could emerge as viable third options in the passing game.

"Both of those guys are really talented," Glennon said, per The Tampa Tribune. "Tiquan has obviously been around the league for a while and has made a lot of plays, and so it's great to have him back.

"And Chris, we saw (during training camp) what he was capable of doing. Before he hurt (his ankle in a preseason game) he was doing a lot of special things, so to have both of those guys back will help us."


Buccaneers make change to roster, practice squad


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2013) The Buccaneers announced Wednesday they re-signed wide receiver Tiquan Underwood and signed tight end Matt Veldman to the practice squad.

Buccaneers claim two off waivers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2013) The Buccaneers claimed defensive tackle Chris Jones off waivers from the Texans and wideout Russell Shepard off waivers from the Eagles. To make room, Tampa Bay released wideout Tiquan Underwood and waived linebacker Najee Goode.

In addition, the Bucs signed seven players to their practice squad: cornerback Deveron Carr, offensive lineman Jace Daniels, linebacker Ka’lial Glaud, defensive tackle Matthew Masifilo, tight end Danny Noble, wide receiver Chris Owusu and offensive tackle Mike Remmers.
