Jonathan Mingo (Carolina Panthers)

Alec Pierce isn't the only sleeper wide receiver for fantasy football in this game as Jonathan Mingo for the Panthers looks to be on the verge of a breakout game. The Panthers second round pick has now had five or more targets in six games this season and had four or more receptions in two of the last three games.

This past week against the Houston Texans was his best game yet with four receptions for 62 yards. The Colts this season are basically middle of the pack in terms of defending wide receivers as they have allowed on average 173 receiving yards per game to the position as well as seven receiving touchdowns.

The Colts are probably going to be focusing on trying to slow down Adam Thielen, who is playing like a Top 10 wide receiver. If they do that, this could create some favorable matchups for Mingo and he could be in line for a good game.
