2019 Outlook: Michael Thomas

His Twitter handle is @Cantguardmike, and most defensive backs can't guard Michael Thomas -- at least through the first three years of his career. We don't expect him to slow down in Year 4, and Thomas is worth drafting toward the end of Round 1 or beginning of Round 2 in all leagues. He led the NFL in receptions in 2018 with 125. He also was No. 11 in targets (147), No. 6 in receiving yards (1,405) and tied for 10th in receiving touchdowns (nine). He's yet to score double digits in touchdowns in his career, but being the No. 1 receiver for Drew Brees in Sean Payton's offense has been exceptional for Thomas' Fantasy value. You should expect another strong campaign from Thomas in 2019.
