Logan Thomas has taken a big step forward since a slow start to the season, which has been shown by a big increase in his workload of late. He’ll need a big day for his fantasy owners this weekend against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Football analysis: Washington TE Logan Thomas

Thomas got an absurd amount of targets (17) in Dwayne Haskins’ return to the field last week against Seattle. Is it likely that he gets that many again? Of course not. But the Panthers' defense is ranked 25th in the league against tight ends, giving up over 14 points per game to the position. He’s also seen 32 total targets, 28 of which he's made catch on, over the last three weeks.

He’s clearly become a focal point of the offense as the Football Team makes a push for the NFC East division crown.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

With the massive increase in targets over the last few weeks and the opponent matchup this weekend, it seems like a no-brainer.

Start Thomas.
