Washington Football Team: Five bold predictions for Week 3
By Ian Cummings
No. 3 – Logan Thomas notches career-high receiving total
On one hand, this isn’t all that impressive. To this point, Logan Thomas‘ career-high single-game receiving figure is 40 yards, a mark he reached back in 2017 with the Buffalo Bills. And he needed seven catches that day to get it done.
Thomas’ efficiency at tight end has always been a work in progress, and that hasn’t changed this year. While he’s tied with Terry McLaurin for having the most targets on the Washington Football Team, he’s caught less than half of those targets, and he’s averaging a meager 7.9 yards per reception.
With that being said, however, there’s reason to believe that Thomas is due for an uptick in production. After all, he seems to have targets coming his way regardless of how reliable he is, or how well he separates. And with his elite athleticism, he should be able to separate better as he continues to work on the nuances of the tight end position.
Thomas will likely never be a top option at his position, but so long as he takes advantage of the opportunities he’s receiving, and so long as Washington’s offense improves from their dismal state in the first two weeks, Thomas can earn career highs in every department. That trend should start this Sunday, as the Browns’ defense is hurting at the second and third levels, and they’re averaging 74 yards allowed to tight ends through two weeks.
