Logan Thomas is coming off of a breakout campaign in 2020. There's question about Thomas keeping it up after the Washington Football Team upgraded its receiving corps, though, and that's led him to fall in current fantasy football drafts.

However, his heavy usage in preseason so far and clear connection with new quarterback Ryan Fitzgerald are promising signs regarding his production in 2021.

Logan Thomas Fantasy Value

Fitz has played 37 snaps during the preseason so far. Thomas has been on the field for every single one, even lining up as a receiver in a majority of those snaps. He's also seen 3 targets on 21 of Fitzpatrick's 21 pass attempts so far.

It's a small sample, but this hints that Thomas will be depended on in the passing game despite some new faces like Curtis Samuel. The former fourth-round pick already has a connection forming with his QB, which could pay dividends to start the season.

Thomas exploded on to the scene in 2020 after years of being a non-factor. He set career highs in targets (110), receptions (72), yards (670) and receiving TDs (6) with Washington last year despite a revolving door at quarterback.

That career year helped him rank as TE3 in PPR scoring last year behind Travis Kelce and Darren Waller. Those two, plus George Kittle, are considered the tight end Big 3 in fantasy drafts heading into this season. However, Thomas could prove to be a serious value pick if his preseason is any indication.

Logan Thomas ADP

Thomas is currently being drafted as TE8 (88.0 ADP overall), according to FantasyPros. He provides serious sleeper potential in the middle of the draft for managers who miss out on the top tier of TEs.

Thomas comes in at TE11 in The Duel's 2021 PPR fantasy football rankings.
