Michael Thomas The Cream Of The Pass-Catching Crop

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas set the single-season receptions record in 2019 with 149 catches. Thomas was also one of just four wideouts with at least 50 targets who posted a catch percentage that was 10 percent above expectation, according to Next Gen Stats. He also had the highest target total of 185, 28 more than anyone else. But Thomas had just 8.1 air yards per target and produced the second-lowest average cushion among receivers at 4.8 yards. Opposing defenses pressed Thomas early and often, but Drew Brees continued to target him in small windows. Thomas was targeted on 31.9 percent of his routes run. With Brees still around for another season and Emmanuel Sanders joining the club to take some attention off of Thomas, the 27-year-old should produce another outstanding season. Thomas should be the first receiver off the board in the first round of drafts.

Michael Thomas Favored To Lead League Once Again

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas is the favorite to lead the league in receiving yards in 2020, according to Caesars Sportsbook. Thomas finished the 2019 campaign with a league-leading 1,725 yards. Additionally, he caught 149 of his 185 targets, and also had nine touchdowns, finishing behind Cooper Kupp and Kenny Golladay. With Drew Brees returning for his final year and the Saints having one of the easiest schedules in the league, Thomas could be in store for another record-setting season in 2020. He is projected to be the first wideout off the board in fantasy drafts, but the case could be made for the 27-year-old to be the first overall selection for those who value his position over others.

Michael Thomas Catches Seven Passes In Playoff Loss

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas caught seven of eight targets for 70 yards in a 26-20 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Though he didn't play badly, the playoff loss is a disappointing end to a historic season for Thomas. The All-Pro set the NFL record for receptions with 149, posted the seventh-most receiving yards in a single season in NFL history, and matched his career-high with nine receiving touchdowns. It's scary to think that Thomas is still only four years into his career- there's room for him to get even better. His dominant 2019 should leave no doubt that he should be the first receiver taken in all draft formats, especially PPR.
