Michael Thomas goes for 131 in Week 7 win

Saints WR Michael Thomas caught 9-of-11 targets for 131 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas continues to be as consistent as they come no matter who is under center. In fact, he's caught at least eight passes for 89 yards or a touchdown in every game this season. He is locked in the WR1 spot in a tough matchup with Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals for Week 8.

Michael Thomas targeted 12 times in Week 6

Saints WR Michael Thomas nabbed eight grabs for 89 scoreless yards on 12 targets in Sunday's Week 6 win over the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

While Thomas didn't score, he did come away with eight receptions for 89 yards on 12 targets. The elite wideout has had at least eight for 89 or a touchdown in all six games played this season and will look to keep it going in Week 7 against the Bears.

Michael Thomas goes off in Week 5 win

Saints WR Michael Thomas caught 11-of-13 targets for 182 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 5 win over the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas has been relatively consistent this season but absolutely went off on Sunday as it seems Teddy Bridgewater is finally getting acclimated as the Saints QB1. Thomas normally plays well against the Buccaneers but had his best game against them this week. Thomas will look to keep it going in Week 6 against the Jaguars, who may once again be without Jalen Ramsey.

Michael Thomas totals 95 yards in Week 4 win

Saints WR Michael Thomas caught all nine of his targets for 95 yards in Sunday night's Week 4 win over the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

While Thomas did not score, he managed 95 yards and caught all nine of his targets. This could be the narrative while Drew Brees is out, but Thomas showed why he is still a must-start on a weekly basis in fantasy. The opportunities will be there. Thomas will look to find the end zone in Week 5 against Tampa Bay.

Michael Thomas scores in Week 3

Saints WR Michael Thomas nabbed five catches for 54 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 3's win over the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas scored his first touchdown of the season but on a season-low seven targets and 54 yards on five catches. With Drew Brees out, Thomas may not be seeing double-digit targets every week as the dynamic of the Saints' offense is different with game-manager Teddy Bridgewater under center. Thomas gets Dallas in Week 4.
