Saints' Michael Thomas: Held to just 11 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas caught three of six passes for 11 yards in Sunday's win against the Lions.

In a game where the Saints scored 52 points, you would assume that Thomas, the team's top receiver, would have had a productive afternoon. Yet, the sophomore wideout was held to a paltry 11 yards on just three catches. While his six targets led the team, Drew Brees passed for just 186 yards, his fewest since 2013, in a weird game where the Saints defense scored three touchdowns and the ground game churned out 193 rushing yards. Thomas still leads the team in receiving yards, targets and receptions by a fairly wide margin, so as frustrating as Sunday's tilt was for fantasy owners, there's no need to panic. The Saints will face a susceptible Packers secondary in Week 7.

Saints' Michael Thomas: Logs touchdown reception Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas brought in eight of 11 targets for 89 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-0 win over the Dolphins in London.

Thomas helped the Saints snap out of their first-half doldrums by bringing in a three-yard scoring throw from Drew Brees to cap off their first possession after halftime. It was the Ohio State product's second score in as many weeks and his second contest with double-digit targets through the first quarter of the campaign. Thomas' looks could take a slight hit when Willie Snead (hamstring) finally returns to the field, but there's no danger of him losing his standing as the clear-cut No. 1 receiving option in a highly prolific passing attack. He'll look to continue producing versus the Lions following New Orleans' Week 5 bye.

Saints' Michael Thomas: Finds end zone in win over Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas caught seven of his eight targets for 87 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-13 win over the Panthers.

Thomas, who was the only receiver on the team with more than three targets, also led the way in receiving yardage be a hefty margin. He also scored his first touchdown of the season on a contested grab from five yards out at the end of the first quarter. Thomas appears to be adapting quickly to life as Drew Brees' top target and will look to continue his recent success next week against the Dolphins.

Saints' Michael Thomas: Collects 89 yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas caught five of 10 targets for 89 yards in Sunday's 36-20 loss to New England.

It was a better look for Thomas after being held to 45 yards in the opener, but the Saints' offense looks out of sync to start the season. That dysfunction could be to both the benefit and detriment of Thomas fantasy owners. On one hand, the second-year receiver had led the team in targets in each of the first two weeks to start the season and, unless wholesale changes are made on defense, the team will likely be throwing to come back from behind a lot this season. On the other, the Saints got rid of Brandin Cooks in the offseason without a real replacement for the attention he garnered from defenses. Defenses know that they have to try to take Thomas away, which could be one reason why he's been able to catch just 10 of 18 targets to start the season.

Saints' Michael Thomas: Held in check Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas caught five of eight targets for 45 yards in Monday's loss to the Vikings.

Thomas going against a secondary featuring Xavier Rhodes and Harrison Smith always made Week 1 success a tricky proposition. Although he paced the Saints in targets and tied for the lead in catches, Thomas couldn't find much room to roam. In fact, only three times did Thomas go for fewer than 45 yards as a rookie. In the wake of Monday's showing, Thomas will hope Week 2's matchup against the Patriots brings more success.
