RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

A speedy running back/wide receiver entering his fourth professional season, Thomas' biggest impact has come on special teams thus far. Unfortunately, he ceded punt return duties to rookie Tyreek Hill last season, making his 53-man roster spot more vulnerable. The 24-year-old still returned kicks for the Chiefs in 2016, perhaps giving him a leg up in the running at wide receiver entering training camp. Even if Thomas makes the roster, his single-digit catches (seven) last season and the number of bodies ahead of him on the depth chart don't position the speedster for a heavy enough involvement in the offense to warrant fantasy ownership in most leagues.

2016

After a lackluster 2015 campaign culminated by a concussion in Week 11 that forced him out the remainder of the season, Thomas enters 2016 on the bubble for a roster spot following the team's multitude of wide receiver additions in the offseason. If he were to crack the 53-man roster, the majority of his work would probably come on special teams.

2015

Thomas missed the first four games of his 2014 rookie campaign due to a hamstring issue, but increased his role in the offense as the season progressed. The fourth-round pick out of Oregon displayed the versatility to effect the game in multiple facets, collecting 113 rushing yards, 156 receiving yards and 833 return yards over the course of the season. While his role with the Chiefs remains tough to peg entering 2015, a fair comparison could be Dexter McCluster in his time with the Chiefs, as a running back and wide receiver combo. If Thomas can stay healthy, it seems reasonable to assume his numbers from 2014 will increase in his sophomore campaign as he expands his knowledge of the playbook and gets more experience under his belt, making him a potential late-round candidate in some formats.

2014

At an undersized 5-9, 174, Thomas' best chance to see the field will be as a returner or slot receiver where he can showcase the exceptional speed which made him a fourth round draft pick out of Oregon. Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis are entreched as the one and two at running back, but Thomas could see the touches that Dexter McCluster saw in his tenure with Kansas City.
