Michael Thomas season likely over after surgery

New Orleans Saints head coach Dennis Allen told reporters he expects WR Michael Thomas’ season to be over with season-ending toe surgery, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas has missed the majority of the season to this point with a foot injury, and now Thomas will be placed on IR after receiving surgery on his toe. The injury is expected to lead Thomas to miss the remainder of the season. Thomas’ absence puts rookie WR Chris Olave in the driver’s seat to command the Saints’ offense down the stretch, and Thomas likely does not need to be held on any rosters in re-draft leagues going forward.

Michael Thomas (foot) set to miss Week 8

The New Orleans Saints' head coach Dennis Allen confirmed that WR Michael Thomas will be out for the Week 8 contest against the Las Vegas Raiders

Fantasy Impact

Thomas will miss his fifth game in a row with a foot injury that has kept him sidelined. Neither he nor WR Jarvis Landry logged any practices to open the week. Rookie WR Chris Olave will continue to be the main receiving threat in New Orleans while QB Andy Dalton remains the team's starter.

Michael Thomas (foot) misses practice again on Thursday

Michael Thomas (foot) missed practice again on Thursday and seems unlikely to play this Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas has missed four straight games and appears destined to miss a fifth. He hasn't practiced at all, and given his history with injuries, it's hard to say when he'll be back. Marquez Callaway and Tre'Quan Smith should again see a healthy dose of snaps in a good matchup with the Raiders this week.

Michael Thomas (foot) non-participant in practice Wednesday

Michael Thomas (foot) didn't participate in the Saints' practice on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas is still dealing with a foot injury he sustained early on in the season that has sidelined him for the last several weeks. His timetable for return still isn't clear, but there's been some positive things being said about his recovery. It seems more likely than not that he won't play Sunday, and that would mean more targets for rookie Chris Olave.
