Thomas (torn calf muscle) is out for the season, according to ESPNews.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

This was kind of expected. At one point Thomas was seeing starter's carries with Marshawn Lynch out -- now he's done for the season. Fred Jackson will be the No. 2 guy when Lynch does return to game action. The Bills placed Thomas on IR on Thursday.
Thomas (torn calf muscle) was not present at practice on Wednesday, the Bills' official site reports.

Thomas (torn calf muscle) will miss this week's game in Washington, according to The Buffalo News.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

We'd probably say it's safe to drop Thomas, with only five weeks left in the season and Marshawn Lynch looking closer to a return than the A-Train.
Thomas has a torn muscle near the top of the calf muscle behind his knee, the Bills' official site reports.

Thomas (calf) looks pretty iffy for Sunday's game against the Redskins, the Bills' official site reports. "They want to wait 48 hours and see where it is," coach Dick Jauron said Wednesday. "I would say that we’re not overly optimistic though with Anthony."

Thomas suffered a strained calf in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars, the Bills' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

"Thomas strained a calf muscle and we'll have to see how that goes in the next couple of days," said coach Dick Jauron. "He finished the game really only in the third down stuff because he was having problems with it. It affected his knee a little bit." With Marshawn Lynch once again very iffy, more of the load could fall on Fred Jackson and Dwayne Wright if A-Train is limited or forced out of action this week. More on this situation in the coming days.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

There was no outlook written for Anthony Thomas.

2007

Thomas looked like Buffalo's possible starter after Willis McGahee was dealt to Baltimore, only to see that door slam shut when Marshawn Lynch was drafted. The A-Train was barely adequate in relief work last year, posting a 3.5 YPC. He's next in line should Lynch falter and should be part of a committee (Lynch will almost surely have the biggest share), but Thomas doesn't have a whole lot to offer these days, as he's not much of an asset to the passing game, either. Lynch owners might feel safer pairing Thomas with the rookie.

2006

After a disappointing 2005, Thomas is looking for a second chance. Coach Dick Jauron coached Thomas for three of his four years at Chicago. During those four years, Thomas gained 3,332 yards which ranks him fifth in Bears history. Shaud Williams was Willis McGahee's understudy last year, but fits better as a third-down back. If Thomas can impress enough during the late summer, the number two back job is his for the taking, though the Bills do have some promising younger runners in the mix as well. Perhaps the veteran Thomas can even motivate McGahee a bit more. Update: Thomas ended up beating out Lionel Gates and will start the season as the No. 2 back.

2005

Former 1000-yard runner will likely be a short-yardage specialist behind Julius Jones. Could have some value in TD leagues.

2004

Thomas is not the same player that ran for 1183 yards and was named Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2001. He's second on the depth chart behind Thomas Jones. Coach Smith brought in Jones because he fit better into the Bears new offensive system that employs backs as receivers. Thomas has sub-par hands - only 9 catches last year. Thomas will still get some carries and be the goal-line battering ram, but temper expectations. If Jones reverts to his forgettable Arizona days, Thomas might get another shot at the starting gig. If you draft Jones, get Thomas as insurance.

2003

Thomas, who managed just 3.4 yards a carry, consistently made poor decisions last season and was painfully slow hitting the hole. It didn't help Thomas' case when Adrian Peterson managed 5.3 yards a carry in a brief audition late in the year. Although the coaching staff promised that Peterson will get “an equal look” in training camp, the Bears will give Thomas every chance to win his job back in 2003, Chicago's offensive line should be improved, and Thomas' fantasy value will come at a major discount after last year's train wreck. Get a glimpse of the A-Train in summer camp before you pony up for him, to be sure, but don't let him completely fall off your radar screen, either.
