Bengals' Mike Thomas: Re-signs with Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals re-signed Thomas to a one-year deal Thursday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports

Thomas appeared in 14 games with the team during the 2020 campaign, during which he caught 13 of his 21 targets for 132 yards and one touchdown. Though the 26-year-old saw an increase in offensive playing time this past season, it will likely take a few injuries before the receiver makes his way up the depth chart.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Ending with a fizzle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas finished the season with 13 catches for 132 yards and a touchdown, but didn't have a catch after Week 7.

After generating some positive buzz during training camp in the early season, Thomas fell out of favor in the Bengals' pecking order, punctuated by a couple of drops and key penalties. He's not guaranteed to return in 2021.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: No targets Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas wasn't targeted during Sunday's 19-7 loss to Miami.

The 26-year-old suited up after being listed questionable with a hamstring injury, and he ended up playing 22 snaps between offense and special teams. Thomas is without a catch since Week 7 and is unlikely to have much fantasy relevance given his place on the depth chart, especially with Joe Burrow (knee) out for the season.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Ready to face Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against Miami, Ben Baby of reports.

Thomas suited up for the Bengals' first nine contests of 2020, but a lingering hamstring issue has held him out the past two weeks. The 26-year-old was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday before upgrading to full participation Friday. Having been cleared for Week 13, he will serve as Cincinnati's No. 4 WR option against a Dolphins defense that's surrendered the eighth-most receiving yards to the position this season (2,027).

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Questionable, expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Thomas is expected to play despite his 'questionable' designation, Ben Baby of reports. He's missed Cincinnati's last two games due to a lingering hamstring injury.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Logs limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Thomas has missed two straight games due to his hamstring injury, but he could have a shot at returning against the Dolphins on Sunday. The 26-year-old has just 13 catches for 132 yards and one score across nine appearances this season.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Inactive vs. Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (hamstring) is inactive Week 12 against the Giants, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

The stage was set here after Thomas missed Friday's practice and entered the week with a "doubtful" tag. He'll now set his sights on a Week 13 return for a matchup against Miami, though even if he makes it back on the field, it will likely be in a depth role.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Unlikely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Giants.

After logging a limited practice Thursday, Thomas took a step back by sitting out of Friday's session, thus making him unlikely to play Sunday. With John Ross (foot) on IR and Auden Tate on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Alex Erickson figures to slot in as the No. 4 wide receiver behind starters Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins and A.J. Green.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Makes progress toward return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (hamstring) participated in a limited fashion during Thursday's practice, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Thomas has been dealing with the injury for the past week and was held out of the team's Week 11 contest as a result. He was also a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, so this progress is a good sign for his potential availability in Week 12. If he's able to take the field, Thomas could see an increased role with Auden Tate (COVID-19) unlikely to be available.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (hamstring) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The 26-year-old was unavailable for Sunday's loss to Washington and continues to deal with the hamstring injury. Thomas likely needs to practice in the next two days to have a chance of suiting up Sunday against the Giants.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game versus Washington, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Thomas will miss a game for the first time since the 2018 season. His role on offense has been consistent all year; he's played around 30 percent of the snaps each game, and his absence should open the door for both Auden Tate and Alex Erickson to handle larger roles Sunday, while Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins and A.J. Green start at wide receiver, per usual.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Questionable for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals list Thomas as questionable with a hamstring injury for Sunday's game against Washington, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Thomas was added to the injury report Thursday after practicing on a limited basis, and his questionable designation implies he wasn't able to shake the hamstring issue completely during Friday's practice. If he gains clearance for Sunday, Thomas will be in line for a depth role in Cincinnati's receiving corps, as Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins and A.J. Green are locked in as the team's clear top-three wideouts.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Zero targets in Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas played only six snaps and had zero targets in Sunday's win over the Titans.

Auden Tate had a big day on Sunday, relegating Thomas to a WR5 role for the Bengals. Even with John Ross inactive, Thomas needs a few injuries to move into a role where he's getting more than a handful of snaps.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Two big plays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas had two catches for 54 yards on three targets in Sunday's loss to the Browns, dropping one ball on the third target.

Thomas isn't going to get the volume necessary to be useful in most fantasy formats -- he has yet to see more than four targets in a game -- but he is at least ahead of John Ross in the Bengals' pecking order.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Snags one pass in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas caught one of three targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Colts.

Thomas continues to operate as the No. 4 receiver behind Tyler Boyd, A.J. Green and rookie Tee Higgins. He's now totaled 11 receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown. Barring an injury to one of the starters, though, Thomas' fantasy value is negligible.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Loses key fumble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas caught one pass for six yards in Sunday's loss to the Ravens and lost a fumble on that reception that was returned for a touchdown.

Despite the lost fumble, Thomas might be in line for more opportunities next week against the Colts if A.J. Green's hamstring injury keeps him sidelined.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Only one target
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas caught his lone target for five yards in Sunday's win over the Jaguars. He was on the field for 25 offensive snaps.

The ascendance of rookie Tee Higgins has limited Thomas's ability to make an impact. Quarterback Joe Burrow has also started throwing more to tight end Drew Sample. Thomas's chances of gaining fantasy relevance now seem to be tied to one of the top three Bengals receivers missing time.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Targets recede in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas had two catches for nine yards on two targets in the Week 3 tie against the Eagles. He was on the field for 16 offensive snaps.

Thomas played less and was targeted less frequently than Tee Higgins and even Auden Tate. He had established a connection with Joe Burrow in training camp that revealed itself earlier in the season, especially in Week 2 against the Browns when he scored, but he's a rotation player and not a mainstay right now.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Finds end zone in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas brought in all four of his targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' 35-30 loss to the Browns on Thursday.

Thomas became the second Bengals pass-catcher to haul in a scoring throw from Joe Burrow in the contest, making his grab on a nifty slant pattern with 5:55 remaining to help bring Cincinnati within five points at the time. While Thomas figures to have an uphill battle for targets each week with the quartet of A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins and John Ross in front of him on the depth chart, the veteran has a respectable seven looks through two games and could potentially benefit on occasion from the attention heaped on his teammates.

Bengals' Mike Thomas: Picks up 17 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas caught two of three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 16-13 loss to the Chargers.

Thomas logged 15 offensive snaps -- tied with Auden Tate and rookie second-round pick Tee Higgins -- and was just one of four wide receivers to garner a target in the season opener. This trend likely won't keep up as Higgins gets more comfortable in the NFL.
