Posted Oct. 30, 2012
Jacksonville traded Thomas to Detroit for an undisclosed draft pick Tuesday. Thomas signed a three-year extension worth $18 million last October that includes $9 million guaranteed.||||||| The Lions lost receiver Nate Burleson for the season last week, so Thomas gives them depth behind Calvin Johnson, Titus Young and rookie Ryan Broyles. Thomas has 13 receptions for 80 yards this season.
Posted Dec. 06, 2010
Thomas caught a team-high four passes for 31 yards in Sunday's 17-6 win over Tennessee.||||||| After scoring in three straight games, Thomas has been held out of the end zone over the previous two weeks and remains a questionable fantasy option as the season winds down.
Posted Oct. 19, 2010
Thomas had a career-high eight receptions for 88 yards in Monday's 30-3 loss to the Titans.||||||| Thomas leads the Jaguars with 29 catches for 346 yards, but isn't getting many looks near the end zone. As a team, Jacksonville has nine touchdown receptions, and Thomas doesn't have one of them.
Posted Oct. 04, 2010
Thomas had five catches for 68 yards in a 31-28 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.||||||| Thomas is not known by the fantasy world but he has good hands and a good rapport with QB David Garrard. He could provide some useful points if healthy.
Posted Sept. 13, 2010
Thomas had six catches for 89 yards in a 24-17 win over Denver on Sunday.||||||| This was a nice debut for the 5-foot-8 Thomas, who had 453 receiving yards as a rookie last year. He's likely nothing more than a depth option at this point, but it may be worth keeping an eye on his production.
