Kyle Yates

Thomas seemed set to return to action this week, but he's apparently still dealing with some nagging injuries that have his return in question now. If he does suit up, he's a locked-in WR1. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After reportedly punching a teammate, Thomas was held out of Week 5. His ankle should be 100 percent now that he's had five full weeks off. He's returning to a matchup that's been much tougher than expected for wide receivers, as we've watched running backs outscore them against the Panthers. There are only two teams in the NFL who can say that: The Panthers and Packers. Through six games, they've allowed just 7.16 yards per target to wide receivers, which is the lowest number in the league. Want the good news? They struggle with alphas. We've watched Keenan Allen tag them for 13/132/1, Mike Evans for 7/104/1, and Calvin Ridley for 8/136/0. This just feels like a game where Thomas is going to explode back onto the fantasy scene and remind everyone that he was a 1,700-yard receiver last year, including the Saints. I have zero concerns about playing him as an elite WR1 in redraft leagues and in DFS cash-game lineups. *Update* He is now apparently dealing with a hamstring injury, so we need to pay attention as the week goes on. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Thomas looks like he should be back this week against the Panthers 4th ranked fantasy wide receiver D. Thomas is a low-upside WR1 at home.
