2. Baltimore Ravens

I know what Baltimore Ravens fans are thinking, and no, Thomas isn't my perceived solution to the team's longstanding problem of not having a true no. 1 wide receiver. He isn't going to fill that void, just like Odell Beckham Jr. was never going to fill that void when he signed a year ago.

However, Thomas could come in as that no. 3 type who simply gives Lamar Jackson a dependable pair of hands to work with. Baltimore still needs to find their alpha wideout to line up outside and allow Zay Flowers to compliment via the middle of the field and underneath. But, Thomas would fit well as that third guy in line, especially if Rashod Bateman continues not to pan out as expected.

This is a team that already runs the ball better than any team in the league, so the passing game doesn't necessarily need to be electric. Jackson does need another weapon or two, though. He's had to do too much on his own ever since entering the league, and Thomas gives him a veteran presence who, when healthy, can move the chains.
