2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Fresh off of signing a new $100 million contract, Thomas looks to follow up his 125-catch performance last year with another elite year in 2019.

Thomas' 321 receptions and 77% catch rate since joining the league in 2016 are the most at the wide receiver position, better than Antonio Brown (311) and DeAndre Hopkins (289). His 80.6 yard per game average ranks sixth over that period, and his 3787 receiving yards places him fifth behind Julio Jones, Brown, Hopkins, and Mike Evans.

The main knock against Thomas is his lack of touchdown production relative to the other elite wide receivers taken in the first two rounds of fantasy drafts. As a direct result of Drew Brees spreading the ball around in the red zone and a hyper-efficient run game, Thomas has yet to post a season of double-digit receiving touchdowns in the NFL.

A closer examination of Thomas' production from last season may indicate positive touchdown regression in 2019. Not only did Thomas lead the league in total catches with 125, but he also led the league with 24 red zone receptions. The fact that he caught 24 passes inside the 20-yard line and only seven of those passes resulted in a touchdown is somewhat of an anomaly. If just three more of those receptions resulted in a touchdown, Thomas would be considered the No.1 ranked WR heading into 2019.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Drew Brees out 6 weeks, torn ligament in thumb
Surgery required
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 16, 10:30 am

New Orleans
Saints' QB Drew Brees is expected to undergo thumb surgery as early as today that would be expected to sideline him approximately 6 weeks, per leagues sources. If the Saints decide to put Drew Brees on IR for the thumb surgery that is required, he would be unable to practice for six weeks and would to miss eight games. Saints also could not place him on IR and bring him back when ready. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We got a sense yesterday when the injury occurred that Brees was going to miss some time. He couldn't grip the football and left the game with a hard cast on his thumb. Teddy Bridgewater will take over as the starting quarterback while Brees is out. This is a downgrade for all the Saints skill players including Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas and Jared Cook. Bridgewater checks in as a middling QB2.
