New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas had seven receptions for 85 yards and two touchdowns in the divisional round of the playoffs. Thomas was the first to get the Saints on the scoreboard with a 14-yard score in the third quarter and followed it up with a three-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter. He winds up a terrific second NFL season in top form and has proven to be a matchup-proof, high-floor WR in all fantasy leagues.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas kept his late-season mojo going in the Wild-Card round with eight catches for 131 yards. He already ended the regular season by setting the record for most catches by a wideout through his first two NFL seasons, breaking a record recently set by Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. Thomas should continue to be quarterback Drew Brees' favorite target in the Divisional round, but he gets a much tougher draw on the other side. Minnesota cornerback Xavier Rhodes is one of the best shutdown corners in the league, and he held Thomas to 45 yards in their Week 1 matchup earlier this year. Thomas doesn't have the highest of ceilings, but with the way the Saints are rolling offensively, it's hard to consider him anything but a top-five WR play this week.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas didn't score a touchdown as he did in his previous two games against Carolina, but he had his best receiving day. Thomas caught eight of 10 targets for 131 yards. Not surprisingly, he was quarterback Drew Brees' go-to receiver and was able to find plenty of space to operate in the defensive backfield. Thomas wound up second among all receivers in both catches and yards over Wild-Card weekend. He is a high-upside play each week, although he only managed 45 yards against next week's opponent, Minnesota, in Week 1.
