Crossroads Fantasy Football
Averaging 117 receptions over his first 4 years. Not sure how you could rank him below 1 with Brees back.No Rams RB averaged over 3.8 a carry. Despite all the Gurley concerns, he still had 250 touches on the year, and graded equally as well in the run as the previous 2 years according to whatever PFF uses. His line play was terrible, 26th in the league. He now steps into just a favorable situation, behind a top 10 run blocking line in 2019, where his pass catching work should pop back up, even if TDs aren't quite as high, to provide another 250 touch season, and borderline RB1 potential as long as the knees allow it.
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...Gurley is going to be given all the touches he can handle in this Falcons offense, if he can stay healthy. If he proves that he can handle a significant workload, he'll easily outperform his ADP this season. However, there are legitimate reasons to doubt that he'll be able to withstand a heavy workload ever again, which makes him an incredibly risky pick.
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%)New team, same cherished bell cow role, unfortunately he doesn't get new knees with move to ATL - at No. 15 RB ADP, feels like a little more risk than reward
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.The Rams offense was in complete disarray last year, as their offensive line started to crumble, which dragged Gurley's efficiency down the drain. He did show that he's still able to handle a big workload down the stretch, finishing with 98 touches over the final five games. Now going to the Falcons, who have one of the better offensive lines in football, with little competition, Gurley could return to RB1 status. It's a high-scoring offense where the running backs have averaged 1,383 yards and 9.7 touchdowns on the ground, while averaging another 572 yards and 4.7 touchdowns through the air over the last three years. With Ito Smith and Brian Hill the only running backs behind him, Gurley should receive most of the work/production.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Michael Thomas targets and fantasy ranks last three seasons: 2017: 149 targets - WR5 2018: 147 targets - WR6 2019: 185 targets - WR1Atlanta is a great landing spot for Todd Gurley--he should walk right into the 17.4 touches/game that Devonta vacated. Still a 4th rounder with durability concerns. Initial Gurley projection with Atlanta is 235 carries, 965 rushing yards, 8 rushing TD, 61 targets, 340 receiving yards, 2 receiving TD.
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.Gurley will have a new lease on life in Atlanta and he did have 14 touchdowns last year, but he also averaged only 3.8 yards per carry, had very few big plays, and his arthritic condition in his knee makes him a dicey flex option.
