Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Thomas had his best game of the season against the Rams last year, tallying 12 receptions for 211 yards and 1 touchdown. That game was at home, but he should still have a huge role on the road against the Rams.I was more troubled that Gurley had only 1 target in the passing game than the 14 carries he saw. If they are not going to throw to him at all or use him in goal line situations, he is probably no more than a low-upside RB2.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Michael Thomas is the top option of Drew Brees and the veteran's go-to in crucial situations. In a projected high-scoring game, the Week 2 looks bright for Thomas.The Rams should be in the red zone often, but don't expect to see Gurley on the field then. Despite controlling nearly 70% of the backfield snaps, he was taken off the field when the Rams entered the red zone. He had zero red zone touches, compared to Malcolm Brown's five and Darrell Henderson's one.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 played a significant snap share and was the feature back as Los Angeles salted the game away late. But he also had just one reception and no green zone rushes.
