Texans' Jordan Thomas: Leads tight ends in targets in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas was targeted three times, but didn't catch any of them in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Titans in Week 2.

The Texans are using all three of their tight ends, so Thomas has to share playing time with Ryan Griffin and Jordan Akins. All three have received targets in each of the first two games, and at this point, there's no clear leader in terms of targets. Griffin leads with six followed by Thomas (five) and Akins (four).

Texans' Jordan Thomas: Third in receiving yards in Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas caught one of two targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Patriots in Week 1.

Thomas is billed as a blocking tight end, but he had the third-most receiving yards in Sunday's loss. He showed nice athleticism in getting past New England safety Patrick Chung on a 27-yard reception up the left sideline. He and fellow rookie, Jordan Akins, accounted for all of the tight end receptions while starter Ryan Griffin was shut out on five targets. We'll be looking to see if the TE depth chart changes based on Week 1, in which Griffin and quarterback Deshaun Watson were clearly out of sync.

Texans' Jordan Thomas: Shows off size as receiver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas showcased his size advantage over defensive backs during Wednesday's practice, but the Texans regard the tight end as a development prospect, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The phrase "development prospect" suggests a limited role on offense for the 6-foot-5, 280-pound Thomas, who is the biggest tight end on the roster. At that size, he should be snatching passes over smaller cornerbacks. The real question is whether the former wide receiver can learn to be an in-line blocker. "He's really, the first few days here, he's actually done a decent job blocking relative to being a young player - better than I thought he would do. I think if he can keep improving in that area, he's good in the passing game, I really like what we've got there," said head coach Bill O'Brien.
