Logan Thomas has done a decent job as the Washington Football Team’s starting tight end, but his opportunities have dropped in recent weeks. He appeared to get a boost in targets in Week 9 after Alex Smith replaced Kyle Allen. Let’s go over his fantasy outlook for Washington’s Week 10 matchup against the Detroit Lions.
Fantasy Football analysis: Washington TE Logan Thomas
Thomas surprisingly amassed 24 targets in Weeks 1 through 3 but only managed 20 in Weeks 4 through 9. Only Terry McLaurin and J.D. McKissic have more targets and receptions than him. Thomas has been able to establish himself as a quality red zone target and is tied for the team lead in receiving touchdowns (3). The six targets he received in Week 9 were the most he’s had in a game since Week 3. There’s no reason he shouldn’t be highly involved on a team getting little production from wideouts not named McLaurin.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Thomas because he’s Washington’s only reliable tight end at this point. Jeremy Sprinkle and Temarrick Hemingway have combined for two receptions on the year while Thomas has 24.
