Week 3
Thomas caught all 4 of his targets, producing 42 yards and a TD. This was the 2nd time that he found the end zone, despite seeing lower volume. In the game he didn’t score, Thomas had 7 targets.

This sets him up as a reliable TE option going forward. While he clearly doesn't have the monster upside of a Darren Waller or Travis Kelce, the ability to set it and forget on a weekly basis with Thomas can be a welcome sight for many.

Going forward, don't overthink it and just start Thomas in leagues where you have him.
Week 2
Logan Thomas finished Week 2’s win over the Giants with 45 yards on 5 receptions. He was 3rd on the team in targets with 7, only getting out-looked by WRs Terry McLaurin and Adam Humphries. Thomas spent most of his time in the middle of the field, but the Giants did a pretty good job of limiting his involvement. He added a beautiful 24-yard reception that eventually led to Washington’s 2nd TD on the night. Thomas owners were vultured by a Ricky Seals-Jones TD late in the game that would’ve capped off a nice outing, but instead they are left with mundane production. It will be hard to trust Thomas every week with QB Taylor Heinicke under center, but knowing that he can still garner 7 targets is something to look forward to. Thomas will have his hands full this weekend in Buffalo. Expect low-end TE1 numbers.
Week 1
Continuing a positive trend from last year, Thomas played every snap. But with Washington attempting just 21 passes in a game they lost by just 4 points, Thomas was targeted just 3 times. Fortunately, he made those looks count by catching all 3 of them, including the only TD the team would score the entire day.

There’s no reason to believe his elite snap share will diminish, and since he’s been a reliable receiver for the team since last year, it would stand to reason that he remains a weekly fantasy starter. That said, he’ll need the Football Team to throw more than the 21 passes they did this week to maintain enough targets to provide some ceiling. But that said, the floor he offers at the TE position is one of the best, aside from the elite options.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Thomas entered 2020 with 35 career receptions after converting from QB early in his career. He doubled that career total by Week 13 of last season.
  • Thomas’ target volume got a huge late-season boost. He averaged 5.5 targets and 3.1 receptions over the first 11 games. That jumped to 9.8 targets and 7.2 catches per game the rest of the way (including the playoff loss).
  • The latter stretch began with the Week 13 game at Pittsburgh, which Terry McLaurin entered questionable with an ankle sprain. McLaurin endured 2 straight 2-catch games and later missed Week 16.
  • Thomas jumped from 15.4% target share over the first 11 games to 23% over the final 6.
  • Among 55 TEs who drew at least 20 targets last season, Thomas ranked:
    • 41st in yards per route run, according to Pro Football Focus
    • 42nd in passer rating on balls thrown his way
    • 29th in contested catch rate
    • T-29th in receiving grade
    • T-25th in average depth of target
  • Football Outsiders rated him just 34th among 49 qualifying TEs in both receiving DYAR and DVOA.
  • Thomas ranked 3rd among all TEs in targets, 3rd in catches, 7th in yards, tied for 9th in TDs. Among that group of 20+ target TEs, Thomas checked in just 43rd in yards per reception.
  • Washington added a lot of bodies at TE this offseason but no single, scary challenger.
    • The team signed Ricky Seals-Jones, Deon Yelder and Dylan Cantrell to modest 1-year contracts.
    • It spent a 4th-round pick on John Bates, who caught 47 balls (including just 2 TDs) across 4 seasons at Boise State.
    • Washington signed basketball-player-turned-footballer Sammis Reyes to a 3-year deal after his impressive workout at Florida’s pro day.
  • Reyes might be the most intriguing but he didn’t play football in college or high school. So expecting any 2021 contribution seems unwise.
  • Washington made more significant additions at WR -- led by Curtis Samuel, 3rd-round rookie Dyami Brown and Adam Humphries -- after producing the league’s 4th smallest target share at the position last year. Expect the 2021 WR group to get more looks.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Thomas lived off huge target volume in 2020 -- especially late in the season, as Washington dealt with injuries and lackluster play at WR. He still looks like the roster’s best bet at TE, but Washington has added some competition there and more impressive talent at wideout. Washington WRs should command significantly more targets than last year, which could cut well into Thomas’ work. Given that he’s a marginal talent at the position -- and heading into his age-30 season -- we don’t see much reason to buy Thomas inside the position’s top 12. He’s an OK PPR target if he makes it out of that range, though.

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.

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.
