2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Michael Thomas is on a G.O.A.T. pace among wide receivers. In his first four seasons, he has produced 92, 104, 125, and 149 receptions. His yardage totals have climbed from 1,137, to 1,245, to 1,405, to 1,725 in 2019. He has scored 9 touchdowns in three of four seasons. On top of those ridiculous stats, his catch rate has been over 80% in each of the last two seasons, which is an incredible stat in and of itself.

No matter what defenses do to try to stop him, he finds a way to get open enough to make the reception. His catch rate shows his strong hands and great length, along with the fact that he is a fierce competitor. He truly wants to be the best receiver, and he puts in the work to get there.

After his historic 2019, Thomas is the first receiver off the board in 2020 drafts, going in the middle of the first round. That is the case despite the dearth of options at running back after the first couple rounds. Thomas is simply too valuable, particularly in PPR leagues, for him to slip much lower than that.

Nothing has changed in his situation much in 2020, aside from two things that have the potential to hurt his fantasy stock. First, Drew Brees continues to age. Although that has not negatively affected his play yet, sometimes age can cause a sharp and sudden drop-off in the quality of a quarterback's play, as we saw with Peyton Manning in his final season. Were that to happen, Thomas could take a big hit. Much of his success has depended on his connection with Brees and on Brees' accuracy.

Second, the addition of Emmanuel Sanders to the team should help them overall, but there is a chance we could see Thomas' target share fall a bit. If his targets go from 185 in 2019 to 140 in 2020, that would certainly knock his production down a few pegs. I doubt the impact will be that dramatic, but it's something to keep in mind.
