Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
With just three games to go, Thomas needs 23 receptions to break the all-time record of 143 set by Marvin Harrison back in 2002. Even with three games left, Thomas' 121 receptions are the 13th-most all-time. It's safe to say he'll get it. The Colts are a team he should be able to rack up some catches against, as they run a zone-heavy scheme that's allowed receivers to catch 68.4 percent of passes that come their way. They've allowed 10 different wide receivers to rack up six or more receptions against them. Thomas moves all over the formation so there's not one cornerback he'll see more than others. Knowing the Colts are one of the more limiting teams against the run, Thomas should have himself a big day. There have been seven wide receivers who've posted 21-plus PPR points against the Colts, so feel free to play him in cash and tournaments. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
We know Michael Thomas is a WR1 lock every single week anyways, but especially so this week. Thomas has the top individual matchup advantage among WRs, being given a 40% advantage over Pierre Desire, according to Pro Football Focus. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Colts are just 23rd against fantasy wide receivers, Thomas should be in line for a monster game at home on MNF.
