After dealing with an injury for the majority of last season, MT underwent surgery in June to fully fix the issue and he's now projected to be out for the first part of the season. It's a bit of a mystery right now as to exactly how long he's going to be out, but it doesn't look good for his draft stock heading into fantasy football draft season. After projecting him to miss the first five games of the season, Thomas dropped from WR12 in my projections to WR44. Without the guarantee that he's going to return to fantasy football dominance - as evidenced by last year's performance - Thomas may just be on my "do not draft" list. I'm willing to let someone else in my league deal with the potential range of outcomes unless he falls to a ridiculous value point in my draft.

Michael Thomas (ankle) placed on the reserve/PUP list

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas (ankle) was placed on the preseason Physically Unable to Perform List Monday.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Thomas was placed on the preseason PUP list Monday. He's expected to miss all of September after undergoing ankle surgery in June. The Saints star wideout could miss the first six regular-season games if he remains on the PUP to start the year. Thomas is an injury stash for the second half of the season. Alvin Kamara, Tre’Quan Smith, Marquez Calloway, and newly signed Chris Hogan will see more target share while Thomas is sidelined. The 28-year-old’s draft stock has taken a significant hit and is currently 29th among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus draft rankings.
