Washington made multiple moves at tight end on Wednesday.
Washington TE Logan Thomas (hamstring) has been placed on IR. That knocks him out for at least the next 3 weeks, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Thomas is expected to miss "at least 4 weeks." He can be dropped in shallower fantasy leagues. In a corresponding move, Washington signed former Packers TE Jace Sternberger. We'll see how snaps are divvied between Sternberger and Ricky Seals-Jones, who stepped in as Washington's lead TE after Thomas left last week's game.

Ricky Seals-Jones will get the start in Week 5 against Saints but can't be counted to demand the same amount of targets as Thomas. RSJ is on the TE2 radar.
