2020 Fantasy Outlook
Thomas is perhaps best known for his time as a quarterback at Virginia Tech, though he's been hanging around the NFL ever since he was a fourth-round pick in 2014. He enjoyed his best season to date in 2019 with the Lions, catching 16 passes for 173 yards and a touchdown. Thomas now has a nice opportunity to see even more work, signing a two-year, $6.145 million contract with a Washington team that arguably has the weakest tight end room in the NFL. The competition consists of Jeremy Sprinkle, Richard Rodgers, Hale Hentges and Thaddeus Moss, so it won't come as a total shock if Thomas finds his way to four or five targets per week, albeit in what figures to be an inconsistent passing game.

Solid showing in wild-card loss
TEWashington Football Team
January 9, 2021
Thomas brought in five of nine targets for 74 yards in Washington's 31-23 wild-card loss to the Buccaneers on Saturday night.
ANALYSIS
The veteran tight end followed up a career-best regular season with a strong showing in the season-ending loss, checking in third in receptions and receiving yards and second in targets. Thomas totaled between 63 and 101 receiving yards in four of his last six games including Saturday's contest, and he'll look to improve on 2020's 72-670-6 regular-season line during his 2021 contract year.

Thomas signed with Detroit this offseason after spending two years in Buffalo honing his craft as a tight end. While the former Virginia Tech quarterback has upside as both a blocker and pass catcher, he was unable to lock down a roster spot.
Thomas made seven catches for 67 yards and one touchdown in 2017. He'll take a backseat in the tight end pecking order once again, as a bulk of the targets will go to veteran Charles Clay, who had 74 balls thrown to him last season.
Will likely be cut as Ryan Nassib is the team's probable backup to Eli Manning.
The Cardinals' 2014 fourth-round pick, Thomas was essentially redshirted last season, attempting just nine passes on a team riddled by injuries at quarterback. When Carson Palmer was lost to a season-ending torn ACL, the Cards turned to the uninspiring Drew Stanton. After Stanton went down, the starting nod was given to Ryan Lindley, who hadn't thrown a pass since 2012 and was signed just a few weeks prior off the Chargers' practice squad. Coach Bruce Arians likes tall, big quarterbacks, but the 6-foot-6, 250-pound Thomas is a project. Given Thomas' size, powerful arm and athleticism (4.54 40, 35.5-inch vertical), there's some long-term potential. However, he won't win the backup job this season, as he must improve his accuracy and decision-making to even hold onto the third-string gig.
Selected in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, Thomas beat out Ryan Lindley for the honor of third-string quarterback in Arizona, as expected. However, starter Carson Palmer handled all snaps behind center last season, making it difficult to forecast reps for backup Drew Stanton in the upcoming campaign, let alone Thomas.
