2. TE Logan Thomas, Washington Commanders
Before the season, I wrote an article detailing Thomas as an underrated fantasy option. In 2020, Thomas scored the third-most fantasy points among tight ends in PPR leagues behind only Travis Kelce and Darren Waller. After dealing with injuries in 2021, he is finally back healthy. So, it is somewhat surprising to see him continue to fly under the radar in fantasy football leagues.
Through two games, Thomas has not put up eye-popping numbers, but he has been solid. In Week 1, he recorded three receptions for 45 yards on six targets. In Week 2, he had three receptions for 37 yards and a touchdown on five targets.
This season, Thomas is not expected to rival Kelce, Waller, or Mark Andrews, statistically, but he projects to be a consistent, reliable option at the shallowest position in fantasy football. As of Monday morning, Thomas has the seventh-most fantasy points among tight ends in Week 2. He should continue to receive a steady amount of targets, and at 6’6″, he is a prime red zone target for Carson Wentz.
He is a low-end TE1 this week against the Philadelphia Eagles.
