Saints' Michael Thomas: Held to 47 yards by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas caught all four of his targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 33-18 win over the Giants.

Josh Hill of all people led the team with 63 receiving yards, while Thomas and Alvin Kamara tied for second at 47 apiece. While that was it for Thomas on a quiet day from New Orleans' passing game, Kamara complemented his receiving accolades with a trio of rushing scores. Thomas still remains the unquestioned No. 1 wide receiver for star quarterback Drew Brees and has 42 catches for 445 yards and three touchdowns through four games, despite this poor performance, so a bounce-back effort seems likely with the Redskins coming to town Week 5.

Saints' Michael Thomas: Catches historic Brees pass in OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas caught all 10 of his targets for 129 yards in Sunday's 43-37 overtime win over Atlanta.

Thomas hauled in a 35-yard pass on the game's first play, then became a part of history in the second quarter by catching Drew Brees' NFL-record setting 63,001st career completion for a gain of 17. While New Orleans' top wide receiver didn't get into the end zone, he recorded double-digit receptions for the third consecutive game to open the season. Even with a road tilt against a tough Giants pass defense next week, Thomas will be a must-start.

Saints' Michael Thomas: Another double-digit catch effort in Week 2 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas brought in 12 of 13 targets for 89 yards and two touchdowns in the Saints' 21-18 win over the Browns on Sunday. He also lost a fumble.

Thomas once again paced the Saints' passing attack, posting his second straight double-digit catch game to open the season. The 25-year-old has seen a jaw-dropping 30 targets through his first pair of 2018 games, and unlike what might hold true on other teams, the level of usage may not be much of an outlier. Thomas remains Drew Brees' most trusted target by far, putting him in play in all season-long and daily formats weekly. He'll look to generate a third consecutive prolific performance in a Week 3 divisional clash with the Falcons.

Saints' Michael Thomas: Logs full workout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (illness) was listed as a full participant in Thursday's practice, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Even though the illness limited Thomas' involvement in Wednesday's practice, there was never much concern about his availability for the Saints' Week 2 matchup with the Browns. Thomas' full participation in Thursday's session officially removes any doubt, making him an easy activation for fantasy owners coming off a 16-catch, 180-yard performance in the Saints' season-opening loss to the Buccaneers.

Saints' Michael Thomas: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (illness) participated in Thursday's practice, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

An illness befell Thomas on Wednesday, resulting in a DNP, but a return one day later indicates it was a temporary concern. Even if he's listed as limited on Thursday's injury report, he appears to be on track for an appearance Sunday against the Browns.
