Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Has 70 more catches, 116 more receiving yards than any other player in NFL history thru their first 4 seasons41 TDs over past 4 seasons is tops among WRs, and has 4th-most FAN PTS thru 1st 59 games of career among WRs over the past 20 years
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.Tyreek Hill has been a very good fantasy asset to have over the last three years. However, he's not someone you want to trust with consistency. For instance, he's posted WR2 or better numbers in just 21-of-43 games over that time. Those numbers pale in comparison to guys like Thomas, Adams, Jones, and Hopkins.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Tier of his own when comparing to other WRs. He is the alpha and clear #1.Locked in with the best QB possibly ever. No brainer WR1 with overall WR1 upside.
Justin Dodds
Locked In Football
Last season, MT beat the WR2 by 67 fpts and 100 fpts in half PPR and PPR, respectively. Thomas lead over the next best in receptions by 45 and 28 in targets, all while also being without Drew Brees for nearly 6 full games. Expect this dominance to continue in 2020 as the Saints have added only Emmanuel Sanders to the offense, who currently isn't expected to be involved all that much being ECR WR45 in half PPR. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Thomas broke Marvin Harrison's single-season reception record with 149 receptions in 2019. 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.Hill was not the same fantasy receiver in 2019 with just 883 yards and 7 touchdowns in 2019. He missed 4 games with a collarbone injury that hurt his season and he played 2 more games without QB Patrick Mahomes II. He should be elite again in 2020.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
149/1725/9 . . . while playing with a backup QB for a good chunk of the season. That's all you need to know. 
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...As long as Hill is connected to the Chiefs offense and Patrick Mahomes, he belongs in the top-5 fantasy WR discussion. Hill comes with a safe floor, but also has the talent and skillset to single-handedly win you a matchup. You can draft Hill again confidently in 2020.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
There's a very good chance Michael Thomas won't repeat as the fantasy WR1 in 2020. In fact the WR1 hasn't repeated since 2014. But is anybody else more likely to top all receivers in 2020? Absolutely not! The reality is that it's really hard to consistently churn out league-winning fantasy performances but Michael Thomas is rightly the consensus WR1. You can safely take him anywhere between 1.03 in PPR and 1.06 in non-PPR without any complaints from me.Tyreek Hill is a spectacular player to watch but I'm always a little nervy having him on my NFL team. Despite playing for the best offence in the league, he seems to have a lot of down weeks. You can forgive him though when he blows up for 35 points the next week. His elite upside makes him an awesome best ball option but his lack of weekly reliability makes him a questionable first round choice and his explosiveness makes him more susceptible to injuries than the average WR. Ultimately he's a super non-PPR option but when receptions count he lacks the floor of other elite players and should be docked accordingly.

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.Averaged 15.62 ppg in outings where he played more than 18% of the snaps(10 games). Easily good for a pace of WR2(250) in 2019, nearly 26 points ahead of Julio in second place. Nothing unusual either. Scored 290 in 2018 to lead all WRs. Injuries have hampered him but he's the clear WR2 in 2020 for me and while not the most consistent option, definitely the best in terms of week to week ability to win you a week. Injuries were a concern in 2019 but tired of hearing how boom or bust he is. The fewest points he got you in 2019 when not leaving the game was 7.6, that's totally fine.
