Expert 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Michael Thomas just put up the best season for a WR of all time and there's very little reason to doubt that he could put up another dominant performance in 2020. Even when Drew Brees went down, MT was still dominant with Teddy Bridgewater. Thomas is clearly the WR1 in drafts this season and it's not even close. If you want to build your fantasy team around Thomas, you're not going to find any complaints here... 
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
149 catches in 2019 was an NFL record and 80.5% catch rate was by far best all-time among WRs with 100+ catches (W. Welker 2nd at 75.9%) 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
You know what the craziest thing about Thomas' 2019 season was? Among the top 40 single-game performances throughout the season, he had just one of them, yet he still finished as the No. 1 fantasy receiver by a massive 67.0 half-PPR points. You can argue that another receiver may finish No. 1, but you can't find a safer receiver atop of drafts. 
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Michael Thomas targets and fantasy ranks last three seasons: 2017: 149 targets - WR5 2018: 147 targets - WR6 2019: 185 targets - WR1 
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Averaging 117 receptions over his first 4 years. Not sure how you could rank him below 1 with Brees back. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Thomas broke Marvin Harrison's single-season reception record with 149 receptions. He also had 1,725 yards receiving and 9 receiving touchdowns, despite QB Drew Brees missing 5 games. Thomas is the best fantasy receiver in football, especially if Brees returns to New Orleans in 2020.
