Thomas caught two of five passes for eight yards and a touchdown during Monday's 45-21 loss to Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas got Miami on the board late in the first half with a two-yard shovel pass for a score. It was Thomas' second touchdown in as many games after opening the season on a seven-game scoreless run. He's also been a bigger factor in the offense with 13 targets in two weeks after averaging just four per game to start the season. The Jay Cutler-Thomas connection seems to be picking up steam, but is Miami's offense a unit you really want to hang your hat on at this point?

Thomas caught six of eight targets for 84 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-24 victory over the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas put together one of his finest performances since his days in Denver on Sunday, setting season highs in nearly every receiving category and finding pay dirt for the first time this season. With that said, this is the first time Thomas has seen more than five looks all year and just the sixth time he's been targeted in the red zone. With a wideout trio of Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills around to compete for looks on any given night, it'll be hard to rely upon Thomas to produce at a similar clip going forward.

Thomas caught two of three passes for three yards in Thursday's 40-0 loss to the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

Thursday marked a new low for what has been a disappointing reunion for Thomas with head coach Adam Gase. The former touchdown machine has topped 30 yards just once in seven games and is scoreless thus far this season. He might be able to fair better against a shoddy Oakland defense this week, but he might see some competition for playing time with Anthony Fasano, who has caught five passes over the past two weeks and tied Thomas with 36 offensive snaps on Thursday.

Thomas (knee) was a full participant in practice Tuesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas was limited during Monday's walkthrough but now should be cleared for Thursday's matchup with the Ravens. The starting tight end is coming off a season-high 58 receiving yards against the Jets but will have to adapt to catching balls from Matt Moore this week with Jay Cutler (ribs) expected out.

Thomas was a limited participant in Monday's practice due to a knee injury, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

After playing 39 snaps and finishing with a season-high 58 receiving yards on three catches in Sunday's win over the Jets, Thomas was likely restricted for maintenance purposes more than anything. It's a positive sign he was at least able to take the field on a limited basis Monday, and if he's upgraded to a full participant in team sessions Tuesday or Wednesday, he'll be in little danger of missing Thursday's tilt with the Ravens.

Thomas snatched three of four targets for 58 yards in Sunday's 31-28 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas started off his day with a nice 25-yard grab. The play was for more yardage than Thomas had recorded in three of five whole games in 2017. The veteran tight end has yet to score in 2017 and Sunday was his first outing with at least 30 yards. Adam Gase's attempts to rekindle the star that he coached in Denver have thus far been unsuccessful. Continue to sit him until further notice.

Thomas snatched three of five targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 20-17 win over Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

The receptions and targets both matched season highs. There was some hope that head coach Adam Gase could coax some of the magic he found in quarterback Jay Cutler in Chicago and Thomas in Denver, but that has not been the case thus far this season as Miami's offense has sputtered more often than not. Thomas remains a quality red-zone target, despite having not scored a touchdown thus far this season, but he doesn't seem to have the same catch-and-run ability of his earlier days and it's difficult for him to make too much of an impact with so many options outside for the Dolphins. The fact that he's averaged just 21.6 yards per game thus far this season should be proof enough to leave him on your bench.

Thomas nabbed one of four targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 16-10 win over Tennessee.

EDGE Analysis

There was a feint hope that, upon being reunited with his old play caller, Adam Gase, Thomas could return to his dominant Denver-era form. That hasn't been the case in Miami as the entire Dolphins' offense has struggled to find a rhythm. There's little hope for Thomas to make much of an impact with so many other weapons in Miami and quarterback Jay Cutler averaging just 177 yards per game to start the season.

Thomas brought in two of four targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 20-0 loss to the Saints in London.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas was modestly involved for the third time in as many games, checking in third in targets behind Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker. The veteran tight end has eight receptions for 71 yards in the first three contests, confirming his role as a secondary option in head coach Adam Gase's system. Thomas will look to up his production when the Dolphins tangle with the Titans in Week 5.

Thomas caught three of five targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas logged just 59 percent of offensive snaps, after handling 96 percent in another three-catch performance the previous week. He actually drew more targets despite the reduction in playing time, but there wasn't much production to be had on a dismal day for the Miami offense. Regardless of snap count, Thomas seems to be nothing more than a complementary target in the Dolphins' passing attack as the team prepares for Week 4 against the Saints. His eight targets place him a distant fourth on the team behind wideouts Jarvis Landry (26), Devante Parker (19) and Kenny Stills (15).
