Among them are premier skill position players such as quarterback
Week 15 brings a matchup against the Chargers, a team Thomas has already faced once, in Week 10. In that game, Thomas caught three passes for 96 yards and a touchdown. That score began a run of tight ends scoring four touchdowns in the last five games against the Chargers, with Thomas' 96 yards being the most gained against them this season.
Despite being slowed by the knee injury -- and playing on Thursday night, which is a quick turnaround -- Thomas is a top option at tight end and should be started in most formats.
Thomas caught five passes for 35 yards, and hooked up with Peyton Manning on an 8 yard score in the second quarter. Thomas wasn't much of a big play threat, and was mainly used on short routes. While he didn't seem limited after missing two games with a knee injury, the team may have opted to use him on shorter routes in his first game back. His final target was marked as a deep pass, so he may be capable of doing more next week. Thomas will take on the Chargers Week 15.
Thomas has missed the past two games with a knee injury. He was able to take part in full practice both Thursday and Friday.
