New York Jets wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is dealing with a hamstring injury this week. In case you have not been paying much attention to Thomas and the Jets (and why would you) this is not the first time this injury has landed him on the weekly report with a questionable designation. Thomas did manage to practice this week, in a limited role, and seems like a decent bet to play this week.

Thomas had his best game of the season back in Week 10 against the Giants when he caught six passes for 84 yards, both season highs for him. The other weeks he’s played this season have been mostly forgettable.

Thomas will most likely play, and you can even put him in your fantasy lineups if you want to ... but you shouldn’t. Sure, on paper, the matchup against the Dolphins is an attractive one. However, the best Thomas could do last week against the slightly more hapless Bengals was 23 yards on three catches.
