Description: Thomas had three catches for 33 yards and a touchdown against the Browns on Sunday.
Insight: Thomas now has two touchdowns this season, but with Jeremy Shockey and rookie Jimmy Graham around he is not fantasy relevant right now. (

Description: Thomas had three catches for 10 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' win over the 49ers on Monday night.
Insight: The touchdown was nice, but Thomas is too far down the pecking order in the Saints' passing game right now to offer much consistent fantasy value. (

Description: The New Orleans Times Picayune reports Thomas has re-signed with the Saints
Insight: Thomas has 35 receptions for 356 yards and a touchdown in 15 games for the Saints last season, and could be a factor in the team's passing game in 2010. The presence of Jeremy Shockey does limit his fantasy upside. (

Description: Thomas had one reception for 25 yards in the Saints' win over the Patriots on Monday night.
Insight: Thomas has emerged as a reliable target for Drew Brees, but he is not productive enough to be a reliable fantasy option. (

Description: In three seasons as a blocking tight end for the Patriots, Thomas has 21 receptions in 32 games.
Insight: Thomas started ten games last year and made nine receptions. Even with Tom Brady back, Thomas shouldn't be drafted or played in a fantasy setting ... ever. (

Description: Thomas is a backup tight end for the Patriots. He made nine receptions last year for 93 yards and no TD's.
Insight: Thomas, who is only sometimes confused with the late creator of Wendy's, is a blocking tight end and special teams contributor. In other words, he's a Wendy's burger compared to a fantasy tight end like Antonio Gates' filet mignon. (
