Arizona has been struggling to cover tight ends over the last two seasons, Thomas should be an elite tight end option this week.
If Davis is healthy enough to play the full game, the veteran tight end has tremendous upside against a Chiefs defense that allows the 7th most points to fantasy tight ends. He is dealing with a back injury and will be limited in practice this week.
