Career highs across the board
TEDetroit Lions
January 2, 2020
Thomas, who caught one of three targets for 15 yards in Sunday's finale against Green Bay, finished the 2019 season with 16 catches (28 targets) for 173 yards and one touchdown in 16 games.
ANALYSIS
While Thomas has had a slow but steady transition from quarterback to tight end over the past few years, he modestly set career marks across the board in 2019. Some of that may be due to T.J. Hockenson (ankle) missing time, but in any case, Thomas at least showed himself to be a serviceable depth option who can catch a few passes when called upon. It remains to be seen if any team around the league will reward Thomas this offseason for his development, as the 28-year-old is set to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2015
2014
Thomas made seven catches for 67 yards and one touchdown in 2017. He'll take a backseat in the tight end pecking order once again, as a bulk of the targets will go to veteran Charles Clay, who had 74 balls thrown to him last season.
Will likely be cut as Ryan Nassib is the team's probable backup to Eli Manning.
The Cardinals' 2014 fourth-round pick, Thomas was essentially redshirted last season, attempting just nine passes on a team riddled by injuries at quarterback. When Carson Palmer was lost to a season-ending torn ACL, the Cards turned to the uninspiring Drew Stanton. After Stanton went down, the starting nod was given to Ryan Lindley, who hadn't thrown a pass since 2012 and was signed just a few weeks prior off the Chargers' practice squad. Coach Bruce Arians likes tall, big quarterbacks, but the 6-foot-6, 250-pound Thomas is a project. Given Thomas' size, powerful arm and athleticism (4.54 40, 35.5-inch vertical), there's some long-term potential. However, he won't win the backup job this season, as he must improve his accuracy and decision-making to even hold onto the third-string gig.
Selected in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, Thomas beat out Ryan Lindley for the honor of third-string quarterback in Arizona, as expected. However, starter Carson Palmer handled all snaps behind center last season, making it difficult to forecast reps for backup Drew Stanton in the upcoming campaign, let alone Thomas.
