Michael Thomas 2019 Outlook


Recommended Posts

Thomas is a top stud receiver with a QB who is also a top QB and who loves to throw. Look for him to continue to put up fantastic numbers and be a #1 WR and in the lineup every week no matter the defense.

The man just broke the all time Receiving record for a season,  and still has a game left to play.      MVP of 2019 in my book. Most people just forget he exist,  ......unstoppable this year.

Thomas is in the same tier as Davante Adams and Deandre Hopkins and could easily finish as the #1 receiver in .5 PPR or 1 PPR.

He's a little bit of an ADP bargain right now IMO. Not flashy and just doing his business.

If he was being traded this would be all over the Internet lol. 

Yes it would.

I doubt New Orleans signed him to a new contract making him the highest paid WR in the league, and first non-QB to average $20m/year, to turn around and trade him weeks later.

But I dunno - maybe they're drunk

  • 2 weeks later...

I owned him last year, and he was good, but kind of a disappointment overall as my #1. He had 7 games of 5 rec or less and 9 games with 0 TDs. Maybe this year will be different, though. Yards w/o TDs feels like the normal "good game" for him. TDs were kind of a bonus.

Man - what terrible news from Brees.  Just have to hope and pray that it isn't long term.

So how are we feeling about him? Clearly a downgrade but still received 11 targets from Bridgewater that game as he was thrown into the fire.  MT was his first read most dropbacks.  MT's game isn't predicated on the deep ball but he is the ultimate possession/PPR guy so might not be big of a downgrade as we think.

I don't think his targets will drop, but his td's probably will.  That being said, I don't think Thomas' outlook changes alot. No one predicted him being a high td guy.  And, I could actually see a scenario where Thomas is alittle better with Bridgewater.  Sounds crazy, I know... But Brees does like to spread it around. Teddy only had eyes for Michael.  We'll see but I'm thinking Brees will be out 4-6 weeks, so not the end of the world for Thomas. He'll get by just fine.

It's a downgrade for sure....

But...It isn't like Bridgewater is total garbage or something.  I mean, he's arguably one of the best backups in the league.  It's probably lowers Thomas' ceiling a bit but I think he'll still be okay.

One of the things I liked about drafting Thomas was the depth of the Saint's QB's.

Not ideal news, but I actually don't think this will end up being a big downgrade for Thomas. Obviously Brees is much better than Teddy, but Thomas is still gonna see a ton of targets. 

Agree with this.  It's not like Thomas gets a ton of downfield targets.   He's perfect for Bridgewater.

Biggest concern would be if teams feel like they can devote more attention to Thomas.

Losing Brees definitely drops Thomas down in the rankings a notch or two. However, I think this situation will have a much worse negative impact on Kamara.

 

This is pretty much my thinking, that teams will start to load the box daring the Saints to beat them with their passing game. Thomas can still get open and Teddy's just competent enough to get him the ball.

 

Does anyone have his stats once Teddy came in? Seemed like he still got peppered with targets.
