Thomas has secured an NFL-high 120 receptions, but he may not get a chance to significantly bolster that tally. Locked into the NFC's top seed, the Saints could take it easy on him and other key starters to prepare for the postseason. While Sean Payton hasn't said if the receiver will rest, it seems likely with Teddy Bridgewater spelling Drew Brees. Thomas could either deliver another WR1 showing or a goose egg, so it's hard to treat him as a top-30 option due to the volatility.
