Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Thomas followed a Herculean start with a pair of tamer four-catch games. He might face a similarly mild result against the Ravens, the NFL's second-best passing with the fewest standard fantasy points allowed per game (16.5) to wideouts. Nobody is benching a stud with a 93.9 catch percentage (46-of-49) and 103.8 yards per game, but he merely falls a couple spots down the rankings and outside the realm of DFS consideration. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Thomas is going against the 6th ranked fantasy receiver defense, but he is a matchup proof WR1 coming off his bye playing with QB Drew Brees.
