It seemed like he was getting close to playing last week but was ultimately scratched. He did get in limited practices on both Thursday and Friday, so I'd assume he was close to play. The Jets signed Pierre Desir to be their top perimeter cornerback this offseason, but that went south quickly, as he allowed two touchdowns before halftime in his coverage, and that got him a quick seat on the bench. Seriously, he was benched for Nate Hairston at halftime. The other perimeter cornerback (where Aiyuk figures to play 80 percent of his snaps) is Blessuan Austin, who has seen exactly 39 career targets in his coverage. He was a sixth-round pick for the Jets in last year's draft who was forced into starting. He hasn't been horrible, though he's also not someone you need to avoid. Still, it's Aiyuk's first game and he may be on a snap count. He's a boom-or-bust WR5-type option.Despite playing 44-of-67 snaps in a matchup that's been good for tight ends, Thomas saw just two targets that netted two receptions for 16 scoreless yards. In a new offense, it's possible they just don't utilize the tight end position very much. The Bucs allowed 11 tight ends to finish as top-15 options last year, but they did upgrade their safety unit in the draft when they selected Antoine Winfield Jr. It didn't seem to help that much against Jared Cook last week when he racked up 80 yards on seven targets against this defense. Still, we need to see Thomas actually get targeted before considering him as a streamer. Don't forget the Raiders (the team he played last week) were a team that allowed 12 tight ends to finish as top-16 options last year.
