  • Saints' Michael Thomas: Perfect in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Thomas hauled in all four of his targets for 91 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 48-7 win over Philadelphia. Thomas' first two targets of the day both went for 30-yard receptions and would help set up touchdowns a few plays later in the first half. The former Buckeye opened the third quarter with a nine-yard catch before capping that same drive off with a 23-yard score to give the Saints a 31-7 lead. While that was his final look and he saw his fewest opportunities since Week 4, the 25-year-old still managed to make it six straight games with at least four catches and 69 yards and now has five touchdowns over his last five contests as well. He has another even more favorable matchup at home Week 12 against Atlanta on Thanksgiving.

  • Thomas caught 12 of 15 targets for 211 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 45-35 win over the Rams. Thomas was the only Saints player with more than five targets as he set a new career high in receiving yardage, setting the single-game franchise record in the process. Already well on his way to a big day, the wideout burned a defender deep to haul in a 72-yard touchdown pass and put the game away in the fourth quarter. After an excellent start to the season, Thomas hit a bit of a lull by his lofty standards, but this performance goes to show that he remains an elite option as long as the game script supports the New Orleans passing attack. He's now up to 880 yards to go along with five touchdowns through eight games and will look to continue his stellar season next Sunday against the Bengals.

  • Thomas (shoulder) practiced in full Thursday. The Saints limited Thomas' practice reps Wednesday as a result of a shoulder injury, but it didn't hinder his ability to participate in all drills Thursday. He has a great chance to produce Sunday versus a Rams defense that has yielded 9.2 YPT and 11 touchdowns to wide receivers this season.

  • Saints' Michael Thomas: Not practicing Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Thomas wasn't present during the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. The reason for Thomas' absence won't be known until the Saints release their first Week 9 injury report. For the season, Thomas leads all NFL players with at least 15 receptions in catch rate at 90.6 percent (58 of 64).

  • Saints' Michael Thomas: Gains 81 yards
    By RotoWire Staff

    Thomas caught five passes (six targets) for 81 yards in Sunday's 30-20 win over the Vikings. While this wasn't Thomas' biggest fantasy day, it was certainly strong considering that Drew Brees passed for just 120 yards all game. The 25-year-old's incredible three-week start to the season may have been unsustainable, but he continues to have strong fantasy value as Drew Brees' top outside receiving option. Expect Thomas to be busy Sunday against a Rams defense that is weakest in its secondary.
