2019 RTSports Outlook

Thomas played every game his rookie season and got some weekly chances, catching 20 passes for 215 yards and four touchdowns in a reserve role for the Texans. He had just one game with more than 50 yards but found the end zone three games, including a two-touchdown performance in Week 8. Thomas should be the No. 2 or 3 tight end for the Texans this year. Thomas is a huge target that does well as a blocker. But his big size can cause matchup problems for the opposition. He is a tough cover because of his size and speed. He can stretch the field despite weighing 280 pounds. Thomas will cause mismatches.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Thomas might get a few chances but will be hit or miss for fantasy teams. He will be a touchdown dependent player because his reception and yardage totals won't be great. He could get 25 receptions for 250 yards and three touchdowns.

Player Notes

Houston Texans tight end Jordan Thomas has missed most of training camp and the preseason, but he was active in Saturday's preseason win over the Detroit Lions. Thomas caught two of his five targets for 17 yards and also had a touchdown called back by penalty. Thomas was originally expected to be Houston's top tight end, but he was third on the depth chart on Saturday. How fast he manages to work his way back consistently into the rotation will determine how much -- if any -- fantasy value Thomas will have. For now, he's somewhere in the high TE3 range but with upside to finish as a TE2.

Houston Texans tight end Jordan Thomas (hamstring) has returned to practice after sitting out the past week. Thomas is in line to be the lead tight end for the Texans this year after catching 20 passes for 215 yards and four touchdowns last year. While Thomas has been listed in places as a sleeper at tight end, Houston's plan to rotate him with rookie Kahale Warring, second-year tight end Jordan Akins, and possibly veteran Darren Fells puts a limit on how much Thomas will be able to do in this offense. He's better as a best-ball option than as a re-draft option.

Houston Texans tight end Jordan Thomas recently suggested that Houston will use a committee approach at tight end with Thomas, Jordan Akins, and rookie Kahale Warring, but Thomas is expected to be the leader of that committee and the player most likely to be a weapon in Houston's passing game. Thomas caught four touchdowns last season, but he saw his snap percentage fade as the season went along. Even if Thomas gets the most snaps, quarterback Deshaun Watson doesn't target tight ends at a rate that would make Thomas a sustainable fantasy starter.

Houston Texans tight end Jordan Thomas is working as the team's No. 1 tight end in organized team activities. Ryan Griffin is out of the picture, so Houston needs one of Thomas, Jordan Akins or rookie Kahale Warring to step up in 2019. It looks like Thomas, who had 20 receptions for 215 yards and four touchdowns in his rookie season, will get the first shot to prove himself. The 22-year-old might struggle for consistency if he's sharing repetitions with the others, but he also has a chance to be a fantasy sleeper at the position in a rising offense.
