Michael Thomas Snubbed In Ranking List

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas was ranked as the No. 2 overall wideout in the league, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Though Fowler has Julio Jones ahead of the former Buckeye, Thomas will still likely remain to be one of the first players off the board in fantasy drafts for the 2020 campaign. The 27-year-old was the clear-cut best receiver in the league last season, finishing things up with a career-high 1,725 yards off of 149 catches to go along with nine touchdowns. Look for him to be taken within the first five selections in the majority of fantasy drafts heading into the year.

Michael Thomas Expected To Flourish Once Again

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas is the top-ranked wideout on Sports Illustrated's Big Board for the upcoming campaign. Thomas finished 2019 miles ahead of the No. 2 receiver in all formats. While contributor Bill Enright doesn't foresee another record-breaking season for the 27-year-old, he expects him to lead the league once again in many statistical categories. Thomas will hopefully be catching passes from Drew Brees for an entire 16-game stretch in 2020, with the future hall of fame signal-caller also having the luxury of playing behind one of the most efficient offensive lines in the league.

Michael Thomas In Consideration As Best Receiver

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas, who had his third straight 100-catch season in 2019, is in consideration as the best at his position after setting an NFL record with 149 receptions last season. At 6-foot-3, 212 pounds, Thomas is a bully on the outside with a hard-nosed playing style. The 27-year-old has gone over the 1,000-yard mark in each of his first four seasons, totaling 298 first downs thanks to his sneaky running skills. The Saints and quarterback Drew Brees feed Thomas early and often as their clear No. 1 wideout, and opponents just haven't been able to stop him. He is an elite fantasy wideout that should be the first wide receiver off the board in all formats.
