Shamarko Thomas: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Will Allen, rather than Thomas, will start against the Patriots on Thursday, according to the Washington Observer-Reporter.

Thomas is in line to replace Troy Polamalu as a starting safety, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

A fourth-round draft pick in 2013, Thomas played nearly 200 defensive snaps as a rookie but was limited to special teams during an injury-riddled sophomore campaign. While he's known as a hard-hitter and did force a couple of fumbles on special teams, Thomas will likely have to compete for the starting job in training camp. It's also worth noting that the Steelers still technically have Polamalu on the roster, even though the future Hall of Famer isn't believed to be a part of the team's plans for 2015.
Thomas had one tackle (solo) in Pittsburgh’s 27-17 win over Cincinnati on Sunday night.

Brown reports Thomas is expected to return for Sunday's game against the Ravens. If that holds true, Thomas would likely be a depth asset if Troy Polamalu is healthy enough.

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Drafted as insurance for the oft-injured Troy Polamalu, Thomas suffered an injury of his own last season. Still, he showed his potential, and is in line for increased playing time in 2014.

2013

Thomas lacks height, but he plays hard and is very athletic, possessing both straight-line speed and sufficient lateral movement. He likely won't play much as a rookie as long as Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu are healthy, but the latter player is often hurt. There's IDP upside here in dynasty formats.
