Thomas recorded two sacks and a pass defensed in Sunday's 26-17 win over the Steelers.
ANALYSIS
Thomas saw his playing time increase Week 2 after fellow defensive tackle Gerald McCoy (knee) was placed on injured reserve, and the former 49er stepped up by notching his first sack since Week 6 of the 2019 regular season. Thomas figures to continue rotating with Darius Philon for snaps behind starters Quinton Jefferson and Johnathan Hankins.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
It would be hard to label Thomas as anything but a bust after being selected with the third overall pick in the 2017 draft. The former Stanford standout has struggled to establish himself as an outside rushing threat, and he is considered undersized when shifted to the interior. Thomas' struggles are highlighted by the club declining the fifth year on his rookie contract, making 2020 a make or break season for the defensive lineman in San Francisco. He will have to prove himself while beginning the year as a backup rotational piece.
The 49ers were largely considered to have won the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft after trading down and still getting their guy, Solomon Thomas, with the third overall pick. Results were mixed in his rookie campaign, as the athletic freak managed just three sacks to go along with 41 tackles in 14 games. Thomas did show flashes of his potential at times, but he'll need to step it up in his sophomore season in order to evade early "bust" rumblings. The 22-year-old will serve a hybrid role in 2018, serving as the pass-rushing "Leo" defensive end in base formations, while moving inside on passing downs. It sounds like the 49ers plan to officially unleash Thomas as an every-down player, after limiting his snaps last year.
The 49ers have been looking for a replacement for Justin Smith ever since he retired, taking defensive linemen in the first round of the draft for three consecutive years. The team may have found its best replica to date when they used the third overall pick to draft Thomas, a slightly-undersized defensive end who brings the ferocity that the Cowboy used to exhibit. There are concerns about his length and his ability to generate enough sacks from the defensive end position, but the Stanford product certainly has the athleticism and motor to prove doubters wrong. Like DeForest Buckner before him, Thomas should immediately make an impact up front for a young 49ers defense.
