Game status Update: Thomas is officially ACTIVE for Sunday’s game against the Falcons. He will provide Heinicke with another weapon in the game. Unfortunately, Thomas’ usage has been so up and down this season that he can’t really be trusted in your fantasy football lineup unless you are in an extremely desperate situation.

Game day Update: Thomas has been dealing with both a rib injury and an illness. He is expected to still be able to suit up and play on Sunday. He should slot in as another weapon for Taylor Heinicke against the Falcons.
#Commanders TE Logan Thomas (rib, illness) is listed as questionable, and he is expected to play, source said.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 27, 2022
Washington Commanders tight end Logan Thomas is on the injury report again this week. He’s been dealing with an illness and a rib injury. Thomas was able to practice in a limited role on Wednesday and Thursday, but the illness popped up later in the week and caused him to miss practice on Friday. Head coach Ron Rivera ended the week by saying that Thomas should be available this week, but you’ll want to keep an eye on the news ahead of Sunday’s game.
Washington hosts the Atlanta Falcons at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.
Fantasy football implications
Thomas is coming off his best outing of the season. He caught five passes on six targets for 65 yards in a win over the Houston Texans last week. Age and injuries have taken a toll over the years, and Thomas doesn’t have quite the same upside he used to. But this is a decent matchup against a Falcons defense that’s allowing an average of nearly six catches and 57 yards per game to opposing tight ends.
If Thomas can’t play, John Bates slots into the starting lineup in his place.
