Washington Football Team: Studs and duds from Week 2 loss to Cardinals
Dud 3: TE Logan Thomas
Logan Thomas didn’t have an awful game, but he was pretty unremarkable. The tight end didn’t make as much of an impact on offense as many, myself included, were hoping to kick off the game.
It wasn’t for a lack of targets. Thomas saw nine on the day, good for the second-most on the team behind Terry McLaurin. However, Thomas wasn’t able to do much with those. He caught four passes for a ho-hum 26 receiving yards.
That said, Thomas had the opportunity to catch some more passes. He had a couple of balls glance right off his hands and struggled to separate from defenders. The latter point shouldn’t be a massive issue for the 6-foot-6 tight end, but he just didn’t show the ability to make the contested catches because of his faulty hands.
Thomas should continue to get opportunities moving forward. He’s the most athletic tight end that Washington has on their roster. But in the future, he has to make catches at opportune times to keep the chains moving.
If a couple more games pass and he continues to be inefficient with his targets, then Washington can consider alternatives to Thomas. But it feels like he should be able to produce more than he did this week.
We’ll see if Thomas can step up in what should be a favorable matchup with the Cleveland Browns in Week 3. Needless to say though, he’ll have to rebound after a mediocre outing in Week 2 against the Cardinals.
