Week 7 Outlook

Sun 4:05pm ET
Matchup (?)
Week Rank (ECR) WR #9
Projection 11.6 pts



Thomas followed a Herculean start with a pair of tamer four-catch games. He might face a similarly mild result against the Ravens, the NFL's second-best passing with the fewest standard fantasy points allowed per game (16.5) to wideouts. Nobody is benching a stud with a 93.9 catch percentage (46-of-49) and 103.8 yards per game, but he merely falls a couple spots down the rankings and outside the realm of DFS consideration.

Thomas is going against the 6th ranked fantasy receiver defense, but he is a matchup proof WR1 coming off his bye playing with QB Drew Brees.

We knew Thomas would cool off from his record-setting pace but he's still catching an unreal 94% of his passes. As long as Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara don't take all of the red zone looks, Thomas should retain top-10 status for the remainder of the season.

After sizzling start, has had quiet combined line of 8/121/0 in past 2 games - return of RB Iingram likely to have NOLA leaning a bit more on run game - does face top 10 easiest ROS schedule at WR
