Michael Thomas reportedly seeking $22 million per season

Michael Thomas is reportedly seeking $22 million per season in his contract talks with the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

New Orleans is wanting to offer $18 million annually. ESPN had previously reported the Saints are willing to make him the highest paid receiver in the league and the two sides remain interested in getting a deal done by training camp.

Michael Thomas in line to become highest paid receiver?

Contract talks have opened between Michael Thomas and the New Orleans Saints, and Thomas could become the highest paid wide receiver in the NFL.

Fantasy Impact

According to ESPN’s Dianna Russini, the Saints would be “comfortable making him the highest paid receiver in the game.” The current highest paid receiver in the game is Browns’ wideout Odell Beckham Jr, who earns $18M per year. Earning just $1.2M annually, Thomas stands to land a mega deal. The Saints would be wise to get a deal done with Thomas sooner than later and keep his price from rising any more in the future. He’s been one of the most productive receivers in the league over the past three years, averaging 107 receptions, 1,262 receiving yards, and seven receiving TDs per season.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas had totaled 211 yards in his first meeting with the Rams this year but had a much tougher test this time around. It’s a brutal end to a promising season for New Orleans. Thomas has transformed himself into one of the best receivers in football. He’s a clear cut WR1 entering 2019 fantasy drafts.

Michael Thomas has monster performance in win over Eagles

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas caught 12 of his 16 targets for 171 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

The Eagles had no answer for Thomas, who was seemingly open all night and delivered a key touchdown in a 20-14 win. After catching 12 passes this week and 125 during the regular season, the Los Angeles Rams will have their hands full trying to slow him down next week.
