RB - FA
Week 7 Outlook
Pierre Thomas rushed for 30 yards on seven carries and one catch for five yards.
Thomas has been the preferred passing down back for two weeks. Matt Jones should make his return in time for the Wild Card game, making Thomas no better than number three on the RB depth chart for Washington.
Pierre Thomas only carried the ball for four times for 22 yards but had seven receptions for 67 yards.
Thomas provides a spark to the Redskins' offense as a pass-catching running back. Alfred Morris has never posed much of a receiving threat and Thomas has been taking some of the time provided from Matt Jones' injury.
The 49ers have parted ways with RB Pierre Thomas after one game.
Thomas didn't do much with the 49ers, notching 12 yards on 4 carries. This doesn't mean that Carlos Hyde is necessarily on the comeback trail, the Niners signed Travaris Cadet in a corresponding move. Cadet has no fantasy value and Thomas may pop up in New England.
Pierre Thomas has signed with the 49ers to shore up their depleted RB corps.
Pierre Thomas turned down a deal from the Texans earlier in the year because he balked at the prospect of sharing the load and taking a back seat when Foster returned. He's worth a speculative add in deeper leagues but it's unlikely he returns any valuable production, and will probably be back on your waiver wire next week.
According to Pierre Thomas's agent Lamont Smith the two sides could not agree on terms for a contract that would make Thomas a Texan.
It was reported earlier today that following a workout Thomas would sign with the Texans. It is unclear whether it was the money or the role Thomas would play in the Texans offense that was the cause of this disagreement. Either way Thomas must feel as though a better situation will open up for him in 2015.
