WR - NO - Active
This Week Outlook
Michael Thomas snared five of his seven targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in a first-round playoff win over the Bears.
After nearly a full month off Thomas looked fresh and ready to return to form. He was able to generate some yards after the catch to plunge into the end zone in the first quarter and showcased his chemistry with Brees on a 38-yard fade in the third. Although Deonte Harris surprised by leading the team in yards and receptions today, Thomas sits firmly atop the Saints depth chart again and should make for a solid play next week in a divisional rematch with the Bucs.
Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) has been activated from Injured Reserve and will make his return to play against the Chicago Bears for Sunday's Wild Card game
Thomas was placed on IR in Week 14 due to a lingering ankle issue. However, he'll be good to go in the Wild Card round against the Bears on Sunday. The Bears have a strong secondary but a healthy Thomas will be a handful. Priced at $6300 on Draftkings, Thomas has great value and upside for Sunday's three-game slate.
Saints' star wide receiver Michael Thomas (ankle) is expected to get in a limited practice on Wednesday and will likely increase practice participation throughout the week in time to return for Sunday's Wild Card matchup against the Chicago Bears.
Thomas went to IR three weeks ago to rehab a high-ankle sprain and is expected to continue progressing in order to return off IR in time for Sunday's post-season game against the Bears. The former Pro-Bowl receiver has dealt with injuries throughout the season but should be healthy enough to make an impact against a tough Bears defense. Continue monitoring Thomas' status in practice throughout the week.
The Saints placed star WR Michael Thomas (ankle) on injured reserve.
This is a killer for fantasy managers who were hoping to get Thomas back in Week 16. He'll miss the final three games of the regular season but the Saints insist that he'll be 100 percent for the playoffs. Thomas can be dropped in redraft fantasy leagues.
Saints star WR Michael Thomas has been ruled out for Week 15 due to an ankle injury.
Just when fantasy managers thought they would get back the Drew Brees/Michael Thomas connection, the injury bug strikes again. Thomas will be sidelined for Week 15 with an ankle injury. Alvin Kamara should return to elite status with Brees back in the fold. Manny Sanders and Jared Cook should see a bump in targets and Tre'Quan Smith may also be in play as a desperation FLEX option.
