Texans' Jordan Thomas: Scores in Week 9 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas caught his lone target for a seven-yard touchdown in Sunday's 19-17 win over the Broncos.

Thomas found paydirt for the third time in two games. The rookie tight end is making the most of his 14 targets, catching nine of them for three touchdowns and 14.1 yards per catch. The Texans were thin at wideout for this game -- Will Fuller (knee) is done for the season and Keke Coutee (hamstring) was inactive -- and we saw the tight end position group targeted six times, 25 percent of Deshaun Watson's pass attempts, which is a lot for them.

Texans' Jordan Thomas: Two touchdowns in blowout victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas brought in all four of his targets for 29 yards and two touchdowns in the Texans' 42-23 win over the Dolphins on Thursday.

The rookie tight end saw extended playing time with Ryan Griffin (illness) out of action and made excellent use of the opportunity. Thomas' early second-quarter 13-yard scoring grab snapped a 7-7 tie and served as the first touchdown of his career. His subsequent two-yard end-zone connection with Deshaun Watson extended the Texans' lead to 21-10 at the time. Thomas' reception total Thursday was a career high and could help him in his ongoing case to carve out a larger role in the Houston offense. Even with Griffin expected back for a Week 9 contest against the Broncos that doesn't take place for another 10 days, Thomas could see a fair share of snaps in his own right.

Texans' Jordan Thomas: Increased role Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas and fellow tight end Jordan Akins will step in for starter Ryan Griffin (illness) who has been ruled out of Thursday's game against Miami, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

This same state existed in Week 7, and the Thomas/Akins duo had a combined one target. Thomas (55 snaps) got the bulk of playing time as he's considered the better blocker of the two, and we should see a repeat of last week's playing-time split. Miami's 29th-ranked run defense could be vulnerable to Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue all night long.

Texans' Jordan Thomas: More snaps with Griffin out Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas is expected to receive more playing time with Ryan Griffin (illness) ruled out of Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Both Thomas and Jordan Akins will get a bump in playing time, although that might not mean much against a Jacksonville defense that's tied with Baltimore as the league's top-ranked passing defense. The opponent, along with a banged up quarterback, might lead Houston to rely on its running attack Week 7. Thomas has been targeted just eight times (four catches) through six games.

Texans' Jordan Thomas: Leads TEs in yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas caught both of his targets for 53 yards in a Week 3 loss to the Giants.

Thomas popped up on the injury report last week with a hip injury but was in the active lineup. He led the position group in yards Sunday and surprisingly leads the unit through three games with 80 yards (26.7 YPG), including catches of 27 and 39 yards. Unfortunately, he's third on the depth chart, has just three catches, and the Texans rotate three tight ends, meaning he's an unreliable fantasy play. Additionally, quarterback Deshaun Watson's targets heavily skew to DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller, whose 52 combined targets are more than the rest of the pass catchers on the roster put together.
