The staff members at Footballguys are full of opinions. In a Faceoff, we allow two members to voice their opinions on a specific player. One picked the high side, and the other took the low side.
High Side: Ari Ingel
After being called "nearly unstoppable" in organized team activities by the Jacksonville press last year, Thomas battled his usual injuries, playing in just nine games, and then had to deal with the horrible quarterback play of Blake Bortles. Change can be a good thing though, and Thomas is back playing with Dolphins head coach Adam Gase, with whom Thomas caught 24 touchdowns in just 27 games in Denver under this very offensive system. And, for fantasy purposes, when it comes to tight ends, outside of the top three or four of them, it is all about touchdowns. During those Gase years in 2013 and 2014, Thomas was the 2nd- and 6th-best tight end in the league per Football Outsiders DYAR metric, which classifies a player with holding more value.
