What to do with Logan Thomas in Week 2 fantasy football

The former quarterback put together a productive Week 1 as the starting tight end for Washington. Will it be enough for starting consideration for fantasy owners this Sunday?

Washington Football Team tight end Logan Thomas put together a productive performance in his first game with the team on Sunday. The former quarterback caught four passes for 38 yards and scored a touchdown in the team’s upset win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

Fantasy Football analysis: Washington TE Logan Thomas

Thomas is in his seventh NFL season overall and made the switch from quarterback in 2016. He is clearly valued by the Washington Football Team’s coaching staff, which named him the opening-week starter at tight end. Though he finished with only four receptions, he was targeted eight times by quarterback Dwayne Haskins to lead the team.

Thomas is a few more solid games away from receiving starting tight end consideration for fantasy purposes. His versatility could lead to Washington using him in a variety of ways, and it sure seems like the team will give him plenty of opportunities to succeed.

On Sunday, Thomas will face the Arizona Cardinals, which limited one of the best tight ends in the league George Kittle to 44 yards on four receptions. He also carried the ball once for nine yards. In addition, Jordan Reed added two catches for 12 yards.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

For now, Thomas is a tight end No. 2 with the potential to move up the rankings moving forward. Keep him on the bench in Week 2 but with another successful game, fantasy owners should be more comfortable taking a closer look at him in the third week of the season.
