Washington Football Team tight end Logan Thomas' NFL career began with a rocky start. He played for five different teams between 2014 and 2019, however, he failed to find a prominent role regardless of where he went. That changed in 2020 when he joined Washington and finished the campaign with career-highs in receptions (72), receiving yards (670) and touchdowns (6). But despite his breakout season, Thomas' fantasy outlook is looking somewhat mixed going forward.

Logan Thomas Fantasy Outlook

On one hand, there's a decent chance that Thomas can have another solid season in Washington. The team has brought in Ryan Fitzpatrick to be the new quarterback, which is certainly an improvement over Alex Smith. After all, Fitzpatrick averaged 232.3 passing yards per game in 2020 while averaged 197.8.

On the other hand, Thomas might not get to see the same opportunities that he saw last year, where he was targeted 110 times. However, Washington has brought in more pass-catchers like Curtis Samuel and Adam Humphries and even used a third-round pick on Dyami Brown at the 2021 NFL Draft. In other words, even if Fitzpatrick is an improvement over Smith, there are going to be a lot more mouths to feed in the offense, which means that Thomas' target share could see a drop.

That's not even to mention the fact that Thomas just turned 30 years old. Players around that age are usually done developing, so there's a good chance that his performance last season might've been his peak. If he can stay at that level, he should be a viable fantasy option across all formats. However, if 2020 was a late-career fluke, things don't bode well for his fantasy outlook.

Thomas is currently listed as TE11 on The Duel's fantasy football rankings and TE9 on Fantasy Pros.
