Michael Thomas Week 3 Outlook - Saints at Packers

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Thu, Sep 21st 2023, 8:57am EDT

If any wide receiver could get shadow coverage from Jaire Alexander, it's probably Thomas. Alexander followed D.J. Moore on 55% of his routes in Week 1. He held Moore to goose eggs across the board with zero targets or receiving yards. Thomas has a 22.9% Target share and 22.3% air-yard share with 1.76 YPRR as the WR41 in fantasy. Thomas has looked like the vintage Thomas. He's been second in command against zone coverage behind only Olave. If Alexander doesn't follow Thomas, he'll run about 72% of his routes against Alexander (75% catch rate and 156.3 passer rating) and Rasul Douglas (63.6% catch rate and 41.9 passer rating). Thomas has been the go to receiver in the red zone (tied for the sixth-most red zone targets in the NFL). Week 3 Positional Value: WR3
