New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas is off to a scorching start to his season, raking in 28 receptions for 269 yards and three touchdowns through the first two games. Thomas again will be a top option among wide receivers this week against a Falcons secondary that can be beaten. Thomas excelled against Atlanta last season, posting 14 catches for 183 yards and one touchdown in two meetings between the teams in 2017. Thomas clearly is the preferred target for quarterback Drew Brees and should see a lion's share of the targets come Sunday.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas caught 12 passes for 89 yards, including two fourth-quarter touchdowns, to carry the Saints over the Browns 21-18. Thomas lost a fumble in the game but continues to be quarterback Drew Brees' favorite target through two games. Thomas already has 28 receptions on the season for 169 yards and three touchdowns. Thomas is justifying his WR1 status in preseason rankings.

New Orleans Saints wide receivers Michael Thomas (illness) and Ted Ginn (knee) both practiced in full on Friday and will play in Week 2 against the Browns. Thomas' status was never in doubt, but Ginn worried his owners by missing practice on Wednesday. They'll be the top two options for quarterback Drew Brees against Cleveland. Thomas is an elite WR1 after grabbing a whopping 16 catches in the season opener. Ginn is more of a flex play that could disappoint if he doesn't find the end zone.
