Don't really understand the reasoning behind even thinking about dropping him?

At this point there is nothing on that WW list that screams add me, nor are there any better options then Thomas. At least Thomas has a legit shot at regular touches, none of those other RBs do, and you don't really need a backup TE until the bye and adding another WR makes no sense as it looks like they would never see the light of day of starting anyways.

At this point I would hang onto Thomas, you have more then enough depth to let him ride the pine and get his stuff figured out. If after a few weeks someone else pops up and and is just tearing it up and Thomas isn't, then OK I would understand that, but going into week 1 it makes no sense.

If Arian Foster makes it through week 1 fine, then you may consider dropping Ben Tate for Aaron Hernandez. I just think Hernandez could put up WR2-like stats in New England. Mark Ingram should eventually evolve to be your RB3, but until then you have to keep Daniel Thomas because this is Reggie Bush's first dance as a 3-down back in the NFL and it's very much questionable if he can play all season long in that role.

i know how you feel, he does feel like a wasted spot on my bench, but as soon as reggie bush goes down, which imo he will, you have a starting running back. bush has never held up, and being a fulltime back doubt he will make it 3 games w/out a injury, grab a beer and wait on him. my 2cents!
