Catches another pass
TEDetroit Lions
September 22, 2019
Thomas caught his only target for a 13-yard gain during Sunday's 27-24 victory over the Eagles.
ANALYSIS
Thomas remains the clear No. 3 tight end behind T.J. Hockenson and Jesse James. He's yet to draw more than a single target in any game this year and that's unlikely to change as long as the guys ahead of him stay healthy.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

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.
