Thomas caught his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 20-3 win over Jacksonville.
This was the third straight week that Thomas was limited to one target, as Houston's tight ends have been an ignored bunch all season. He finished the regular season with four touchdowns to lead the position group, but Houston's passing attack focuses mainly on its wide receivers.
Thomas was targeted once and did not have a catch in Sunday's 32-30 loss to the Eagles.
Houston's rotation of tight ends had a relatively good game with a combined eight targets, four catches and 48 yards, but Thomas was on the short end of that production. Ryan Griffin (four targets, two catches) and Jordan Akins (three, two) were more active in the passing attack during a game in which quarterback Deshaun Watson threw 40 times. If the Texans can't solve their rushing woes -- 3.2 YPC over the last three weeks -- they'll need to rely on Watson's arm. With Demaryius Thomas (Achilles) out for the rest of the season and Keke Coutee (hamstring) battling a nagging injury, that opens the door for Houston's tight ends.
Thomas caught one pass for two yards in Saturday's 29-22 win over the Jets.
One week after Houston's tight ends were heavily involved in the passing game, Thomas and the rest of the position group combined for just two targets Saturday. Unless DeAndre Hopkins' ankle injury turns into something more serious, none of the Texans' tight ends are worth considering Week 16 against the Eagles.
Thomas caught all four of his targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Colts.
With Houston's wideout corps culled due to injury and DeAndre Hopkins getting extra-special attention for Indianapolis' secondary, the tight ends increased their profile within the offense Sunday. Thomas, Ryan Griffin (five catches, 80 yards) and Jordan Akins (two catches, 40 yards) all made contributions Sunday, a rarity for the position group this season. Keke Coutee (hamstring) missed his eighth game and DeAndre Carter left the game with a concussion, so their status heading into Week 15 against the Jets will impact the potential value of Houston's tight ends next week.
Thomas caught all three of his targets for 32 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown, in Sunday's 29-13 win over Cleveland.
Week 13 turned out to be Thomas' turn to lead the Texans' tight ends. He scored his fourth touchdown of the season, which also leads the position group -- neither Ryan Griffin nor Jordan Akins have a touchdown catch in 2018. Griffin gets the most playing time and targets, but quarterback Deshaun Watson will throw to any of them, which makes it difficult to pinpoint one as a fantasy starter in any given week.
