Thomas missed two games last season due to a knee injury. Most tight ends take a beating throughout the season and Thomas will likely miss at least one game in 2014.

Receptions – 74

Thomas hauled in 65 balls last season, but he was limited in several games due to injury. Look for the tight end to beat that number in 2014 with the extra confidence and playing time.

Receiving Yards – 970

Thomas is a matchup nightmare. He has great vertical speed and can beat any linebacker in the game. Look for JT to just miss out on his first 1,000-yard campaign.

Yards Per Catch - 13.1

Thomas runs a lot of short to intermediate routes around the goal line, which occasionally limits his YPC. However, he still gets loose in the open field and will post over 13 yards per catch with the extra freedom.

Touchdowns – 12

Thomas burst onto the scene last season and became an elite red zone tight end. Thomas will be asked to do even more inside the 20’s without Eric Decker and his touchdown total should stay over 10 in 2014.
