Logan Thomas, TE, Washington Commanders

Thomas had six receptions (on eight targets) for 44 yards and a touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 8. He has topped 50 yards and/or scored in three of his last four games, and while it might be considered a low bar he has more than seven full PPR points is six of his seven games this season.

Up to and after a Week 14 bye, there are no especially tough matchups on the slate for Thomas. Week 12 (Dallas Cowboys), Week 13 (Miami Dolphins), Week 15 (Los Angeles Rams) and Week 16 (New York Jets) are particularly good matchups at an important stretch of the fantasy season.

There's a natural bit of downside risk, as there is with many tight ends, and but there has been some level of floor with Thomas all season. That's enough to put him on waiver wire radar for Week 9, if not as a streamer than as a low-end TE1 in 12-and 14-team leagues until further notice.
