Expert Note

Thomas has a 23.1% Target share and a 21.5% air yard share as he's been the underneath weapon for the Saints (8.5 aDOT). Thomas is ranked 47th in receiving grade and 45th in YPRR. He leads the team with five red zone targets, although he has failed to secure one for a touchdown yet. Thomas might not be vintage Thomas, but he's still a solid NFL receiver that complements Olave well. Against zone coverage this season (TB corners 64-83% zone) Thomas ranks second with a 22.1% Target share and a 27.8% first read share. Thomas will run about 69% of his routes against Carlton Davis (66.7% catch rate and 103.5 passer rating) and Zyon McCollum (66.7% catch rate and 83.6 passer rating). Week 4 Positional Value: WR3

Michael Thomas leads team in receiving Sunday

Michael Thomas caught 4-of-6 targets for 53 targets in Sunday's 26-9 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas had an okay outing on Sunday, catching four passes for a team-high 53 yards in Sunday's loss to to the Buccaneers. The passing attack wasn't very strong for the Saints overall, likely because QB Derek Carr is dealing with a shoulder injury. Thomas has been okay so far this year but has yet to show that he possesses much upside on a week-to-week basis.
