The Jacksonville Jaguars have put running back Roc Thomas on the waivers/injury list. Thomas, who had just joined the team last week, will be eligible to be placed on Jacksonville's injured reserve if he clears waivers. Thomas is suspended for the first three games of the regular season, so the Jaguars signing him in the first place was a bit of a surprise. Thomas has no re-draft value at this junction, but if he sticks with the Jaguars there may be a path to snaps at some point down the line.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed former Minnesota Vikings running back Roc Thomas. Thomas will serve a three-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy to open the season, so Jacksonville signing him while that looms over his head suggests that the team sees him as an actual piece for the team and not someone who'll just be a camp body. Thomas would slot in as the fourth back on the team, which would likely lead to Thomas Rawls losing his spot on the roster.
The Minnesota Vikings have parted ways with running back Roc Thomas, who was set to miss the first three games of the season after being suspended for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. The move isn't a huge surprise, though Minnesota is now fairly shallow at running back beyond Dalvin Cook and rookie Alexander Mattison. Thomas had just 10 touches as a rookie, so it wouldn't be a shock to see him not make it onto a roster this season, especially with that looming suspension.
Minnesota Vikings running back Roc Thomas has been suspended three games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Thomas had just eight carries during his rookie season and is buried behind Dalvin Cook and rookie Alexander Mattison on the team's depth chart, so the suspension doesn't really mean much for his already nonexistent fantasy stock. Thomas remains at best the team's third back and at worse a preseason roster cut, though in that scenario the suspension will make it harder for me to latch onto another team's roster.
Minnesota Vikings running back Roc Thomas was sentenced to three years of probation after he pleaded guilty to a felony marijuana possession charge from a January arrest. He will be required to undergo random testing and a chemical-dependency evaluation as part of his probation. Thomas could also face additional discipline from the NFL in the form of a suspension. Thomas was active for only five games in 2018 and will battle Mike Boone for the third spot on the depth chart behind Dalvin Cook and third-round pick Alexander Mattison. You can ignore the 23-year-old in fantasy drafts.
