Thomas hauled in four of bis seven targets for 71 yards in Sunday's 38-14 loss to the Chargers.
Thomas finished second on the team in yardage to Marqise Lee, but it was fellow tight end Marcedes Lewis that hauled in a four-yard touchdown pass from Blake Bortles to get Jacksonville on the board early in the fourth quarter. Lewis hasn't topped 400 receiving yards in a season since 2012, but possesses enough skills to cut into Thomas' value. Still, 135 yards and a touchdown through two weeks is an excellent start to the season for the former Broncos tight end.
Thomas hauled in all five of his targets for 64 yards and a touchdown in Week 1, but his status will need to be monitored as this coming Sunday's game against the Chargers approaches. Should Thomas miss any time or be limited at all, Marcedes Lewis is next up for looks among Jaguars TE. Lewis caught two passes for 48 yards Sunday.
Thomas brought in all five of his targets for 64 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Packers.
It was an encouraging season debut for Thomas, who struggled with his efficiency last season and brought in just 58 percent of his targets for Blake Bortles. He also was the only Jags receiver to find the end zone Sunday, hauling in a 22-yard score in the second quarter. Jacksonville has a wealth of receiving options, but Thomas appears to be firmly on Bortles' radar and could improve on his debut season if he remains healthy. Week 2 will bring with it a matchup versus the Chargers.
Thomas had one catch for four yards on two targets in Sunday's preseason game against the Bengals.
Thomas drew a target on 3rd-and-goal from the 11-yard line, but the pass was essentially uncatchable. Both he and Marcedes Lewis received first-team snaps, with the latter failing to catch his only target. Though he may lose some early-down snaps to Lewis, the 28-year-old Thomas still has a shot to establish himself as Blake Bortles' clear No. 3 option behind starring wideout duo Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns.
