Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Even in a plus-matchup with the Saints, Thomas saw one target. He's now seen two or less targets in 6-of-7 games and hasn't topped 16 yards. You're not going to consider him, even against a Falcons team that's allowed more fantasy points to the tight end position than any other team in the league. 
Heath Capps
Fake Teams
Great matchup, but he's at least fourth or fifth in line for targets. Hard to trust.
