ESPN Fantasy Projection: Thomas enters 2022 eyeing a rebound campaign after last season was derailed by multiple injuries. Thomas was seventh in fantasy points through three weeks before a hamstring injury knocked him out until Week 12. He returned for two games before suffering a torn ACL. Thomas is now 31 years old and his early-season availability and effectiveness are in question, but he's a good bet to return to the TE1 mix when healthy. In his breakout 2021, Thomas led all tight ends in snaps and routes on his way to a 72-670-6 receiving line and a third-place fantasy finish. Thomas' recovery will need to be monitored up until Week 1.
