The Bengals have signed Thomas, Dave Clark of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
ANALYSIS
The 2016 sixth-rounder logged just two catches for 14 yards in 16 games with the Rams last season, but he'll provide the Bengals with added wideout/special teams depth. Signing with Cincinnati reunites the 25-year-old with head coach Zac Taylor, who served as the Rams' assistant wide receivers coach in 2017, Thomas' second campaign with Los Angeles.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2017
2016
Thomas has received praise from head coach Sean McVay this offseason and has proven to be a solid contributor on special teams in the past. He's probably got the inside track on a roster spot heading into the 2019 campaign, but Thomas has also been limited to just 24 games through his first three NFL seasons. He's off the fantasy radar until proven otherwise.
Thomas missed eight games in 2017 due to injuries and a suspension. His work in the other eight wasn't impressive, posting five receptions for 93 yards and zero touchdowns. With Brandin Cooks on board now, his fantasy outlook is bleak.
A PED ban will cost Thomas four games to begin 2017, but he'll still have the entire preseason to impress the new coaching regime. Additionally, he'll be fresh and rested once he returns to the field following his suspension. Unfortunately, the Rams beefed up their receiving corps, so it will probably be difficult for Thomas to make a splash unless injuries elevate him up the depth chart. After all, he underwhelmed with just three receptions for 37 yards during his rookie campaign.
The Rams' sixth-round selection in this year's draft, Thomas profiles at 6-1, 200 pounds and owns a 4.53 40-yard dash time. Although he has the physical traits to succeed at the NFL level, playing time may be hard to come by during his rookie year.
