Expert Note
View More Notes

It was quite the rookie campaign for Thomas, totaling 1,137 yards and nine touchdowns in 15 games, and that's despite not becoming a full-time player until Week 3. In his 13 games as a starter, Thomas went on a 16-game pace of 101/1,259/11. Brandin Cooks is gone and Ted Ginn is the only wide receiver they replaced him with. Thomas is going to be a WR1 as long as Brees is under center.

Michael Thomas explodes in Saints' season finale

Michael Thomas caught 10-of-14 targets for 156 yards and one touchdown in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas finished the season on a high note, establishing himself as the number one option in New Orleans. Thomas broke Marques Colston’s team rookie record for receiving yards in a season by finishing with a 92-1,136-9 stat line. Thomas also led the Saints in catches, targets, and touchdowns. Thomas will be a solid WR1 next season and should be a pick in the third or fourth round. Although Drew Brees is getting up there in age, he has a few seasons left, and Thomas should be able to capitalize on those years.
