With Cooks out of the equation, Thomas could see a bump from the 121 targets he saw during his rookie season. If he continues at this efficiency or better with 150 targets, he would enter the disscussion as one of the elite receivers in football.

Michael Thomas looks to build on rookie campaign

Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas told reporter Mike Triplett that he "hit a speed bump" last year when he was sidelined with a foot injury in Week 14, preventing him from breaking records. He went on to say that he wants more yards, catches, missed tackles, and touchdowns in order to "leave my mark in this game."

Fantasy Impact

He said his sights were set on breaking the rookie records, including Anquan Boldin's 101-catch rookie campaign. His 92 receptions came up short, but Thomas wasn't even a full-time player until Week 3. I his 13 games as a starter, his 16-game pace was 101/1,259/11, so he wasn't wrong in his goal-setting. The fact that he went out to workout with Drew Brees this offseason says a lot about his work ethic and not settling on last year's success. Regardless of what some might say, Thomas is an excellent fantasy pick at the end of the first round/beginning of the second round.
