Washington TE Logan Thomas (hamstring) has been placed on IR. That knocks him out for at least the next 3 weeks, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Thomas is expected to miss "at least 4 weeks." He can be dropped in shallower fantasy leagues. In a corresponding move, Washington signed former Packers TE Jace Sternberger. We'll see how snaps are divvied between Sternberger and Ricky Seals-Jones, who stepped in as Washington's lead TE after Thomas left last week's game.

Washington TE Logan Thomas is considered "week to week" with the hamstring injury he sustained in Sunday's game vs. the Falcons, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Fantasy owners should plan on being without Thomas for at least Week 5. Ricky Seals-Jones replaced Thomas as Washington's lead TE yesterday. He caught just 2 of 4 targets but ran 35 pass routes. He might be worth considering as a DFS tournament play with Thomas out.

Washington TE Logan Thomas suffered a hamstring injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. Atlanta and is done for the day. We'll look for an update on the severity.

Washington has agreed to a 3-year extension with TE Logan Thomas, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. We haven't seen the terms yet, but this development obviously points to the team wanting Thomas as a key piece beyond this season. That enhances the dynasty outlook for a player who just turned 30 coming off his 1st year with more than 16 receptions. It also gives at least a slight boost to Thomas' 2021 outlook, solidifying his standing with the team.

Washington HC Ron Rivera said Tuesday that he's considering rotating QBs Alex Smith and Taylor Heinicke in Saturday night's Wild Card game vs. the Bucs. Smith is battling through a calf injury and was clearly inhibited in Sunday night's win over the Eagles. This is obviously a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups. And any snaps for Heinicke would be a downgrade for Washington's pass-catchers.

Washington QB Alex Smith (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. So it'll be Dwayne Haskins back under center. Haskins has been more aggressive than Smith this season (6.6-yard vs. 5.7-yard average depth of throw) but less accurate (60.8% completion rate vs. 66.4%). We'd consider the move from Smith to Haskins a wash for WR Terry McLaurin and TE Logan Thomas but a downgrade for RB J.D. McKissic.

Washington feels "pretty good" about QB Alex Smith's chances of playing against the Seahawks on Sunday, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Smith isn't expected to practice much this week to get that injured calf a chance to heal. He's not much of a fantasy option, but Smith's availability would be good news for WR Terry McLaurin and the rest of Washington's offense.

The Washington Post's Nicki Jhabvala believes Logan Thomas is "emerging as Washington's top TE." The former QB has had a nice start to training camp. "He’s got enough athleticism that he can be dynamic," HC Ron Rivera said. "We’re pretty excited about who he is.” Thomas owns just 35 NFL catches, so he's still a long shot to emerge as a real fantasy factor this season. But he's 6'6, 248 pounds with 4.6 speed. And with very little at WR behind Terry McLaurin, there are targets for the taking in Washington. Thomas will be worth monitoring early this season -- and might even be worth a pick late in FFPC drafts.

The Lions on Monday placed TE T.J. Hockenson on IR with the ankle injury he suffered on Thanksgiving. The rookie disappointed fantasy owners after a huge opener but remains a terrific long-term prospect. His departure from this season leaves Jesse James and Logan Thomas as Detroit's top 2 TEs. Thomas has topped 2 catches in a game just once this year. James -- a high-priced free agent addition before the team drafted Hockenson -- has finished just 1 game all season with more than 1 catch (back in Week 2).

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson suffered a right ankle injury late in Thursday's loss to the Bears. He was reportedly in a walking boot and getting around on a scooter afterwards. We'll update his status when we learn more, but this looks like a significant injury. Hockenson's absence would leave Detroit with TEs Jesse James and Logan Thomas. Neither is worth adding to fantasy rosters right now.
