2018 Fantasy Outlook
Thomas is probably the most heralded of the undrafted rookie running backs on the Vikings, largely due to his superior recruiting pedigree – he was at Auburn before he was at Jacksonville State. He'll compete for the No. 3 running back role this summer and could be a sleeper if injuries strike the top two backs. Read Past Outlooks

Joins Vikings' practice squad

November 8, 2018
The Vikings are signing Thomas (hamstring) to their practice squad Thursday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Thomas was waived by the Vikings earlier this week to make room for Ameer Abdullah on the 53-man roster. The undrafted rookie will rejoin Minnesota as a practice squad player. While it's possible that Thomas could carve out another depth role, it seems unlikely that the undrafted rookie will play significant offensive snaps this season.
