2012 Experience: 5th Season
IDP Fantasy Football Outlook: Unfortunately for Thomas and his dynasty owners, the veteran suffered another knee injury in camp. While the Giants are still hopeful he can play at some point this year, we shouldn’t target him in summer drafts.
It will be hard for Thomas to enjoy the production, per game, he had back in 2010 even when he gets back, as he would likely be in a sub-package role.

2012 Fantasy Football Draft Prep: ADP's | Rankings | Mocks | Cheat Sheets + Auction Values
Information is constantly changing in the NFL and fantasy player values can change at any moment. Having updated, informative news can help you not just at your fantasy football draft but during the regular season. Feel free to glance at our recent articles to make sound decisions throughout the year.
Early 2012 Outlook
The top IDP corner from 2010, Terrell Thomas suffered a torn ACL injury in the preseason, last summer. Reportedly healthy and ready to win a starting job back, Thomas should be an instant CB1 in his return and a potential CB2 if he proves he’s back to his old form.
A solid tackling corner, Thomas should make a run for over 100 total tackles if he plays a full season.
2011,Preseason: Thomas Lost For Season
One of the best corners for IDP fantasy in 2010, is lost for the year after tearing his ACL in the Giants second preseason game. This is a blow to a defense that needs Thomas in the secondary, and he will be missed. Look for Prince Amukamara to take a starting job at some point this season, but he needs to recover from his foot injury.

August 2011: Thomas To Keep Job With Prince Breaking Foot
Before camps began I was concerned that Terrell Thomas would lose his job to first round pick Prince Amukamara but the rookie broke his foot early in camp and that is the final straw in hopes that he might find a starting job, anytime soon. Thomas’s job should be safe for this season and that means you should feel confident in viewing him as one of the best corners to draft at your IDP fantasy draft.
Thomas isn’t the best of corners but that’s a good thing for IDP as you need someone that is active, can make some plays and knows how to drag the guy with the football to the ground. Thomas can do all that, and should continue to thrive in the Giants defensive scheme.
As good as Terrell Thomas was in 2010, he could be an overvalued bust this season as rookie Prince Amukamara stands to challenge him for his starting job, throughout the season. I figure Thomas will keep the starting job to begin the year as Amukamara has missed all the off-season work with the Giants, to prepare himself for a starting job.
That said, I can’t recommend that Thomas should be viewed as more than a No.2 defensive back because of the potential of losing his starting job at some point. That probably means someone else will draft him, because of last years’ numbers but don’t you be that person. There are other defensive backs that you can have without pressing question marks.
2010 IDP Fantasy Football Outlook
Terrell Thomas had a great year for his second season as he was an IDP stud by making plays and racking up 85 tackles on the season. I’m not sure if he will have that total again as the Giants secondary was in horrible shape last year and his numbers were probably a little inflated because of it. Still, Thomas has proven to be a viable IDP fantasy option and would be a good fit for your squad.
