What You Need to Know:

  • Bates saw his playing time jump even before Logan Thomas’ knee injury last season. After topping out at 24% snap share through Week 8, he played 57% or more in every contest from Week 9 on.
  • That included 4 games of more than 70% playing time among the final 5, with Thomas out.
  • Bates reached 10% target share in just 4 games. He saw 8.8% target share in the 6 games after Thomas tore up his left knee.
  • Bates caught just 47 passes across 4 college seasons, with 22 of those coming in his junior year. HC Ron Rivera still called him a “high ceiling” player.
  • Thomas has said he’s targeting a Week 1 return, but he also conceded that his injury was expected to have a 10-month recovery. That put him on track for Week 4.
  • Besides Thomas, Bates’ primary competition looks like rookie Cole Turner, converted WR Antonio Gandy-Golden and rookie Cole Turner.
  • Bates isn’t fast (35th-percentile 40), but his 78th-percentile height for the position could play well in the red zone. And Rivera has already praised his blocking ability.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Given that he had 2 ligaments and a pair of meniscus injuries repaired, Logan Thomas doesn’t seem like a good bet to be ready for the opener. That could make Bates an early-season factor and makes him worth a look at the end of best-ball drafts.

Logan Thomas, TE WAS

12:53pm EDT 10/21/22

Logan Thomas out, Bates questionable for Week 7

Commanders TE Logan Thomas (calf) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Packers. TE John Bates (hamstring) is listed as questionable. If Bates can't go, Washington would be down to TEs Cole Turner and Armani Rogers. Avoid this situation in Week 7 fantasy lineups.

Commanders TE John Bates was knocked out of Thursday night's game vs. the Bears with a hamstring injury before seeing a target. That left TE duties to Cole Turner, who finished with 2 catches on 2 targets for 23 yards. We'll see if Bates and/or TE Logan Thomas (calf) make it back for Week 7.

Commanders TE Logan Thomas (calf) did not practice on Tuesday. He seems unlikely to play vs. the Bears on Thursday night after hurting his calf last Friday. With Thomas out last week, TEs John Bates and Cole Turner split routes and targets down the middle. Neither guy is a viable Week 6 fantasy play.
