  • Michael Thomas Aiming To Break Own Mark

    New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas broke the single-season receptions record last year by racking up 149 catches, surpassing Marvin Harrison's 2002 mark of 143. While that accomplishment would be good enough for most throughout the league, the 27-year-old is aiming to exceed his 2019 total heading into the 2020 campaign. Thomas convincingly dominated the fantasy picture last season, and in addition to his catch total, he also accumulated over 1,700 yards while finishing fifth in yards after the catch. He is expected to finish as the top fantasy wideout this season, and will likely get snagged off the draft board within the top three picks, especially in PPR formats.

  • Michael Thomas Snubbed In Ranking List

    New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas was ranked as the No. 2 overall wideout in the league, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Though Fowler has Julio Jones ahead of the former Buckeye, Thomas will still likely remain to be one of the first players off the board in fantasy drafts for the 2020 campaign. The 27-year-old was the clear-cut best receiver in the league last season, finishing things up with a career-high 1,725 yards off of 149 catches to go along with nine touchdowns. Look for him to be taken within the first five selections in the majority of fantasy drafts heading into the year.

  • Michael Thomas Expected To Flourish Once Again

    New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas is the top-ranked wideout on Sports Illustrated's Big Board for the upcoming campaign. Thomas finished 2019 miles ahead of the No. 2 receiver in all formats. While contributor Bill Enright doesn't foresee another record-breaking season for the 27-year-old, he expects him to lead the league once again in many statistical categories. Thomas will hopefully be catching passes from Drew Brees for an entire 16-game stretch in 2020, with the future hall of fame signal-caller also having the luxury of playing behind one of the most efficient offensive lines in the league.

  • Michael Thomas In Consideration As Best Receiver

    New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas, who had his third straight 100-catch season in 2019, is in consideration as the best at his position after setting an NFL record with 149 receptions last season. At 6-foot-3, 212 pounds, Thomas is a bully on the outside with a hard-nosed playing style. The 27-year-old has gone over the 1,000-yard mark in each of his first four seasons, totaling 298 first downs thanks to his sneaky running skills. The Saints and quarterback Drew Brees feed Thomas early and often as their clear No. 1 wideout, and opponents just haven't been able to stop him. He is an elite fantasy wideout that should be the first wide receiver off the board in all formats.

  • Michael Thomas Has High Expectations Set

    New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas "better break some more records," remarked receivers coach Curtis Johnson when asked how the star wideout could improve this upcoming season. The 27-year-old has a solid chance to do so as he was dominant in 2019. He finished by catching 149 of his 185 targets for 1,725 yards and nine touchdowns in addition to being one of the most efficient fantasy options throughout the year. He is expected to be the first wide receiver off the board in fantasy drafts for the 2020 campaign, with a potential No. 1 overall selection also being a possibility.
