Thomas's skills were evident all season long, but he didn't become a particularly fantasy-relevant tight end until Week 12. From that point on, he averaged nine targets, seven receptions, 60 yards receiving, and half a touchdown per game. Over the course of a full season, that would have made him the third-best tight end in fantasy in half-PPR leagues behind only Travis Kelce and Darren Waller. With Ryan Fitzpatrick under center, Washington should only become more pass-happy, which should portend good things for Thomas, especially if he continues his success in the red zone (his 16 receptions ranked second in the NFL among tight ends in 2020). Draft Thomas as a set-it-and-forget it option at a thin position.
